Project Odette Update #3? Plus A Video To Watch…Maybe?…. If You Want To.

Hello, wonderlandians. I need to start this post by saying that I am so so so sorry to everybody. I open the last 3 weeks on Sundays have been super lazy and not been posting a damn thing. Again I am so sorry. My back for the last few weekends has hurt tremendously. Today is no different in fact I think I have Messed my back up even more somehow. I don’t know how I did it. I was told I needed to restrict movement but also move. It really makes no sense I swear. Today I decided to venture out into the jungle of people that is in the world. I would rather be in an actual jungle where the unicorns are. I need to be with my children at some point. I’ve got like seven of my kids here in my room with me. So today I decided I wanted to go to the bookstore because I was missing two books by E L James to complete my sort of Fifty Shades of Grey collection. I was missing Fifty Shades Freed with the movie cover and then darker. And I got a milkshake and chipotle and apparently by walking around for an hour I have somehow managed to make the pain move my back. I have no idea my life is just a mess. I am in 80-year-old woman trapped in a 26-year-old body.

In other news though I have gotten to 4000 words and project Odette which makes me super happy. I think in April when it is Camp NaNoWriMo I will be going full on with this project. When it comes to things like camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo I have always the best of it touch it but it never pans out the way I wanted to. I think that gives me a total of 2 full chapters done but I also have little bits to the book that aren’t in chapter form. I personally think this is a really cool set of how I have it. So I have the book in chapters but then I also have personally the letters to people in my life. I really wanted this book not only to be very personal to me in the fact that I do have OCD. I wanted this project to also include certain people in my life so I have written letters to go into the book itself. I think it is a really really cool idea.

Last year I read Amy Schumer’s autobiography. I ride Lily Collins autobiography and that was such a cool audiobook to listen to. I also listen to Lilly Singh”s Book called How to be a Bawse.So listening to all of those books on audio have really given me an idea of how I want my book to be laid out. And then listening to Howie Mandel’s book got me thinking of how I wanted to approach the topic of Obsessive-compulsive disorder.Sadly I’ve asked unicorn children if they would give me some of their unicorn magic to write this book and they told me no. It’s fine I don’t need their unicorn magic I can write this book myself okay. It just makes it harder.

In all seriousness though this book is going really well and I’m so excited for the fact that I’ve hit 4000 words is insane to me. It’s great I’m so excited and I’m so happy where this book is headed. The fact that I am writing about An issue that is not very widely talked about at all makes me happy. Also terrified because I am so afraid that nobody’s going to understand the topic at hand because it goes so much more than the obsessive-compulsive disorder itself. Well, I do talk about OCD and the whole spectrum of it. I will be talking about a very small section of obsessive-compulsive disorder that I don’t think a lot of people know about. Which can be taken very very wrong if not done properly. But seriously you can Google the s*** out of it and It is very real. I was city that I will be talking about in this book I have personally had in my life and I had to deal with it for over 10 years of my life.I’m going to provide a link to a video that I did a couple of years ago I want to feel like 3 or 4 years ago that has to do with my OCD story. Click it go watch it if you guys want to maybe I’ll give you some idea where I’m coming from with this book.

That video itself just really scratches the surface of what I want this book to be.

Thank you all for joining me in our little part of Wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.

Until next time

Much love

Ashten
