A change of pace

Remember that one post not too long ago about how I'm trying to blog more often? Well, as soon as my availibity change at work kicks in, I'll be writting a blog every sunday evening to be posted on monday. I also hope to write one for wensday too.

In the meantime, I'm trying to get Book One done by May. Please note: I'm still stuck on chapter 25....ugh.

And on that note, I'm off to make something for dinner. My husband is glued to his PS3 at the moment, but I know as soon as his buddies log off he's going to be starving. Besides, white chili sounds really good when the weather people are talking about how it's going to snow tonight.

Does Spring know it's supposed to be here? Maybe someone should give it a call. I think it over slept.

What friends are for...

Last night I got all of my internet stuff squared away, grabbed my notes, and sat down at the computer for an hour of editting before bed. I had planned everything, but as an hour began to tick by I just drew a complete blank. The words that were filling my head were not those of chapter 25.

Nope, not even close.

Instead, I found myself thinking of all the friendships I had made over the years. From when I was just three years old, to now at twenty-four(twenty-five in May, but who's counting?). So many people flash through your life as you grow up and grow old, and they all leave their impressions on who you are. So here are the words from last night. This is my tribute to those who have touched my life and helped me become who I am now. May you continue to help shape me and my dreams.

Thank you


When you’re scarred and broken, and you don’t know where the pieces fall, and you feel like it’s you against the world, a friend is everything. When you feel like an outsider with your own family and you’ve shown a mask to the world so long that it has become who you are, a friend feels like a lifeline. They let you live in the moment, and help you through the rough times whether they know it or not. They make you laugh when you want to cry, and draw you out into the company of others when all you want to do is shut out the world. They are healers and guardians, brothers and sisters. They are the family bound by richer means then blood. No matter what may come, they stand with you as you stand with them.

There have been times in my life when my friends held me together and picked up the pieces when I couldn’t. They held me when I wept from the pain of growing up, and reminded me that someday it would all be worth it. Their strength helped me through the worst points in my life, and I have no doubt that they would do it again.

So to those of you who think I’ve forgotten what you’ve done, who think I turned my back on the years we’ve had together. To those of you who believe I’ve move on and away from the friendships of my past; I remember.

You have given me so much and have helped me become who I am today. I may not have said it then, but I’m saying it now. Thank you, for everything.

Thank you.

Promoting....its a nessecary thing

Well, I'll be working on cleaning up my rough cover idea tonight and giving it color on my next day off. Hopefully I'll have it loaded and ready to go not long after because that's also the day I'll be getting my sorry butt on the authonomy forums. Its time and past time to start promoting my book so it can hit the editor's desk sometime in the near future.

Wish me luck, I'll probably need it.

My other project is to start blogging a little more and get my rear in gear on book one so I can have a brief break before plunging into book two. The goal is to be done with book one, and starting book two by my birthday. I'm still getting bomboarded with snippets from book two and I fully expect to get caught scribbling away at my register any day now....

Anyway, I do have to work today, so I'm off to do some more edits on chapter twenty-five. I need to trim away at least five pages and it's been slow going.

Onward! XD

New artwork and dirty dishes

I can't win, I swear I can't.

Today I got plenty done, honest. I just didn't get any house work done is all. I have a lovely new piece of artwork to hang and ponder about whether or not it's truely finished, but my kitchen sink is full of dishes and I have yet to take out the trash. Oh well, I guess I'll be doing all that when I get home from work tomorrow.

In other news, I finally finished my edits on chapter 24. It only took me...a week? It feels like MUCH longer then that. I'll have to check later.

I have gotten chapters 11-20 of my book back from that one editting friend of mine and she loved it(insert happy dance here). She says I'm getting better at catching my own mistakes and she barely marked up any of it. Unfortunantly I don't have the next ten ready for her and I won't for some time. I looked them over earlier and had to resist the urge something, lol.

Well, I'd have more to say, but it's waaay past my bedtime and I need sleep in a bad way. G'night!
