So, trying to get back on the blogging horse, so can I start out with a sort of cheat post and give you an excerpt from my edit-in-progress, NASR? This book is my child, and I simultaneously love and hate it. It’s written in dual POV with Braxton and Lissy, and the excerpt is from… Continue reading Excerpt! Not Another Stupid Romance
I tried my utmost best to finish my WIP before the clock struck midnight. It didn’t happen, but I stayed up until about eight this morning writing. My eyes felt like sandpaper, and I was so tired I was literally crying. I’ve started and stopped on this novel for about a year. But at long… Continue reading First Post of 2013: Novel 20
I’m back! And I have a new bed! And a new comforter and beautiful pictures of whales and monkeys and two hands and a weird looking eclectic thing that I couldn’t for the life of me identify! Okay, seriously. I am back from my grandparents’ house and snugged into my own lime-green room once more,… Continue reading I’m Back!
Today I had two of my finals; music (which I got an A in!) and English, which I’m terrified to think about. I was the first one out of that classroom, and my exit was followed with many sad and trapped looks from my fellow classmates. I would had pitied them had I not been… Continue reading I’ve Been Up to Mischief
I have been neglecting everything lately, and I apologize. There have been lots of things going on (honestly), not the least of which is finals and stomach flu and some family stuff and new story inspirations. I absolutely love the new idea I came up with at 1:50 AM in the morning two days ago… Continue reading Great Thinkings Have Been Thought In My Mind
The MC of NASR, Dancer – sometimes called Dan or Danny – is a klutz, in spite of being a dancer. She’s terrified of people and stammers or doesn’t speak at all when she interacts with strangers. On a Friday night, she’d rather sit in the bottom of her closet and draw or photo edit… Continue reading Not Another Stupid Romance Excerpt
I have found the perfect beginning to California Girl. I think it is much more true to the original Lexi, plus it adds way more fun to it. I have to admit, Rexi’s relationship isn’t as golden as it was in the Inkpop version, but it was a lot more fun to write. Not to… Continue reading Writing and Stuff
There are going to be lots of exclamations points throughout November, in case that wasn’t completely obvious. Anyway, I reached 25k last night! YES! Halfway there :DD I have a ton of homework to do, blegh. Books to read and edit. I’m supposed to go over the second chapter of Summer Rush and give it… Continue reading Halfway There!
I have all the covers for this year’s NaNo. Tell me which one is your favorite!
I have discovered that the villain of Elsewise, The Dark One, is supposed to be funny. He’s been imprisoned in a giant boulder for a thousand years; if he didn’t have a sense of humor, he would have gone mad hundreds of years ago. I’ve also discovered what he looks like (jotted this during my math… Continue reading I Was Plotting Today
