Ahhhh…we’ve made it to Wednesday! I loooooove Wednesdays. Know why? Wednesday is DATE DAY with the Philosopher! WOOHOO! And because we’re the cutest couple ever, I’m pretty sure you can bet that we’ll be playing some serious “Ni No Kuni” tonight on the PS3. I’m a Studio Ghibli fanatic, so when a friend of ours let us borrow his PS3 and the game, I was majorly excited. The game itself is fan-freakin’-tastic. The graphics are gorgeous and because I’m a big JRPG fan, I’m thoroughly enjoying the game-play. Anyway. I digress…here’s what you really came for. *Ahem* Wednesday Wanderment, everyone…

Random Facts About My Writing and Reading Habits
>> When I get really mentally tired, I tend to retreat to my bedroom and work from bed. Strangely, despite my tiredness, my productivity increases and I get a stinkin’ ton done. There’s just something about forcing yourself to sit in an office chair while exhausted that encourages mental rebellion…
>> When I get really busy, I have a hard time fitting in reading time. When I get super stressed, I read like CRAZY (read: devour).
>> I have secretly set a goal of publishing 4 books this year. SHHHH. It’s a secret (and it’s also highly ambitious and may not happen, but a girl can dream, right? ;-))
