So I’ve been teasing for a day or so about a big announcement and I’ve had a lot of questions so instead of waiting until the end of the week like I was gonna do… I’ll announce it today.
But first….. (HA) I’ve often said a fair amount about some sensory issues I have. They’re ridiculously hard to put into words, but for you guys I’ll make an exception.
There are certain foods I cannot stand to eat; not because I don’t like the taste but because I can’t deal with their texture. Bananas, cherries, strawberries, pears, watermelon. Can’t do them. Their textures drive me nuts and make me want to rip off my skin completely. They make me feel physically ill to the point of dry wretching. Other foods include tomatoes, cucumber, carrots (unless they’re really finely chopped/shredded), certain types of onion, mushrooms (*shudders*), peppers depend on how I feel on that day and again how finely chopped they are.
I can’t do stuff like apple crumble and custard. I love the crumble and custard but the mushy apple are just fucking disgusting.
It’s not just food either. Sounds can set me off – lip smacking, teeth sucking, if you make a loud noise when you yawn it sets me on edge all day. I can’t touch velour or nylon/polyesther clothing. I cannot ever stand the feel of tights rubbing together, I hate wearing tights unless they’re wool tights. I much prefer leggings.
Smells can make me wretch too; cooking venison, ostrich (yes in my town we have a van that cooks ostrich burgers. I tried one once and I’m completely indifferent to them, however I hate the smell). After cooking smell. When you’ve cooked your meal and you’ve eaten it and you go back into the kitchen after? Yeah that…. I have to hold my breath so I don’t inhale it.
There are some days I am so flooded all I want to do is sit in bed all day. I find a lot of relaxation listening to music up loud so I can shut out the rest of the world.
OK so you’ve either actually read this far or you’ve skipped a head for my announcement. Its after the break…
MY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT:
I have started to… write a book. Yes, you read that right – I’m writing a book. Genre of fiction with adult themes (anyone who knows me knows that I love writing smut!) Characters are based on actual people but only in looks also if you know me you’ll be able to figure them out as you read.
This book will be published and sold, it won’t just be online – you will be able to have an actual, physical copy. I have a working title but I’m not gonna release that info yet. I’m gonna need encouragement to keep this ball rolling. To get it done. It may take months for me to get it perfect but I’m gonna type till my fingers bleed.
This has been and still is one of my biggest dreams and I’m so happy to share it with you all. Of course as soon as it’s published I shall let you all know. Until then expect many tweets about writers block, sausage fingers and other fun stuff.
