You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. ~Ray Bradbury~

21 June 2010 Shiny!

I am so easily distractable.

I've been working diligently on FtF for several weeks. I've spent more time than I should tweaking and changing the outline and a considerable amount of time writing chapter by chapter. But recently, other characters are knocking on the inside of my brain, begging to be let out. I have the almost uncontrollable urge to let them out, put them on paper, just to get the noise out of my head!

Question: What do you do when characters come knocking on the inside of your brain??? How do you cope?

Please enlighten me!

WIP in Pics (Thanx Sara!)

Sara over at SeeSara Write gave me an awesome idea, as well as an opportunity to waste time on Flikr and We Heart It.

It's my WIP Far to Fall in pictures. It took me forever to put this together, partly because I'm a perfectionist (*cough cough* read, OCD), and partly because there were just so many pictures to choose from! I think this is an awesome idea and everyone should try it.

So here goes...Far to Fall in pictures:

08 June 2010


Well, I survived the end of school...and dove right back into school.

So much for my uninterupted writing binge. Money troubles dictated that I had to have a job this summer or we would lose everything. And I mean everything. Not that there's that much to lose, but I rather enjoy having a roof over my head and a car to drive.

So I'm working as a Summer School aide. Woot. I've never worked with High School kids before and I've decided after 2 days that I rather dislike it. There's just so much DRAMA!!!!! It's ridiculous. I'm rusty on my government skills, my math skills suck, and I have no experience with speech. The only real good I can do is assist with the english classes, which don't really seem to need my help so far.

On the writing front, I'm outlinging like mad on Far to Fall, 14 chapters and a prelude done. FtF WILL get written. I'm writing every chance I get, including during down time at work and late, late into the evenings. It's coming together rather nicely. I have high hopes. For now.

We shall see where it all goes...
