Hi. I'm Mia. And I'm anal.
Whoa baby. Let's stop right there before you go to the gutter. This blog has absolutely nothing to do with naughtiness or tushies. Dude, how often do I get to say that? Well, the first part...about no naughtiness included? Um. That's like never.
But anyway, I'm getting off topic. Today's blog is about a special idiosyncracy of mine. Nope, it's nothing interesting like eating everything on my plate, one food at a time, or only drinking my ice-cold milk from a straw (although, I do prefer that method). Actually, the special trait I have is rather dull. Some people refer to as OCD while others call it, Being a Control Freak. But me? I refer to it as Being Anal.
So, in what ways am I anal? Well...let's see. I have a serious obsession with being organized, especially when it comes to writing. I might be flighty (yes, I totally am), but I have to have things a certain way. How, you ask? Well, I thought the best way to explain would to show you.
Keep in mind, this is a small trip into my brain so Beware.
Notebooks...Notebooks...and More Notebooks, Oh My!
Every book I write has a notebook.
(As you can see, they are picture coordinated.)
Every series I write has a notebook.
(Notice, all the binders are color coordinated, too. Yes, I am that anal)
Every thing that I do. Every note that I take. They are all kept in notebooks.
(Do we see a pattern? I. Love. Notebooks.)
Lists...Worksheets...and Spreadsheets, Oh My!
(Note, this is a list of the characters appearing in "Bound by Love's Gravity")
And OMG. I adore worksheets. It's really kind of sad. I make them and make them. And then I make some more. At the rate I'm going, my filing cabinet may very well explode from worksheets alone.
(FYI, these are the two pages I keep notes about characters on, from their favorite color to their parents name, it's all covered.)
So, are you creeped out by my anal ways yet? No? Well, I have more notebooks, lists, worksheets, and spreadsheets where these came from. If your nice, I might share more in the future...with close up shots. Mwahahaha!
I hope you all have a great week. I know I will because the countdown to Bound by Love's Gravity has begun. (7 days and counting...) Check back here daily for special giveaways, leading up to release day. Some of the prizes are naughty! Surprise, surprise.
Lots of love and cherries,
