Ok, so I got this awesome deal where I can publish two books for the price of one!  Totally rad!  Now all I have to do is edit, edit, edit!

That’s it for my update on my publishing process.  Otherwise, I’ve been in a coma all week.  I hate it when the Seniors leave, the rest of us juniors go through the seventh layer of the inferno and it is no where near the end of the school year!

Today I was unable to write, not because of writer’s block, but because of the wait to get my hair attended to at the salon.  I was literally in there all day, I just came home an hour ago.  I had some time to edit, but I couldn’t even do a lot of that because the drier baked my brains!  I can’t think!  I have a hunger headache and everything.  I won’t blog tomorrow, it is Christmas…maybe I’ll get back to you guys on the 26th, if I finish most of my homework.  I probably will be on the falling action by then.  I just have to keep focused and positive.

If you checked out my pictures, tell me what you think.

I wrote three chapters today!  I am thrilled, but I am so upset!  I am practically two chapters away from the climax which means that I am about half-way done with my fourth book of my quartet! NNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don’t wanna leave my characters!  (Imagine a teenager who is normaly extremely composed in a crying fit because she gets emotionally attached.) I have been with them for four books!  I know so much about them!  They are such good friends!  I don’t wanna say goodbye!  I know that I am going to chronicle some of them, but it just won’t be the same.  There will be books that are solely about what happens to the characters after this quartet.  I’m gunna miss having all of them play a part in one story.  It is so sad.

Ok, I am back now.

I guess that I know how it feels to be a parent and being unable to let their kids leave to go to college or summer camp.

(Folds hands together.)  For more pressing news, I was unable to upload my pictures here on wordpress.  However, it is on my Flickr, which I just made an account with today.  Here is the address, and take a look at some of the Characters. (Took insanely long to upload.)

Thanks for hearing me rant and rave about character attachment.

Hello Everybody,

Today was extremely long!  I was helping my mom wrap presents.  (I am on Christmas Break!  Huzzah!)  That means that I spent about ten minutes writing.  It was not in vain!  I got to a good spot, the character, Inaya, also likes logic, and her behavior is logical, so tomorrow when I write, or tonight if I have time, I will be able to continue with the steam and energy that I had today.  Which rocks!

Tomorrow I should have some pictures of my drawings of characters! (I did not set up my scanner properly and I am too lazy to fix it.)  Check out my Characters page because I have my two main characters up!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Hey guys,

Today, I finished a chapter, I’m thrilled!  I also feel slightly depressed at Zili’s behavior.  Zili is changing.  Her whole idea of an underlying drive is to get forgiveness from the person that she hurt the most.  When she meets said person (Let’s call her Gazer of Life), she realizes that the Gazer of Life would never forgive her unless Gazer of Life had something to gain.  Zili reaches an epiphany and realizes that she really does not want forgiveness from someone that will not willingly forgive.  Zili also realizes that even though Gazer of Life may have been treated better than Zili, she is the better person.  It is a bittersweet moment for this character.  I am glad that we had it, but I am upset about the outcome.  It’s not like I am really in control of this, so I really can’t change it.  Sigh.  I can’t wait to add more to this story.

Other than that, it is Christmas preparations and house cleaning over here.  Oh, yeah, I draw.  I am not extremely good or anything, it is manga-ish.  I drew my characters.  Comment this post if you want to see any of them.

This song is my current writing muse.  I love “Allegria” from Cirque de Soleil.

So …I hope that this link takes you to my poll for my pics.
