And Now For Something Completely Different, Only Not Really

A friend and I were discussing blogging the other day. He misses me and I miss him.

I'm doing something a little new in my life. I'm attempting to write a book. A book that will perhaps someday be published. This book is a trashy romance story. No vampires in the one I'm currently writing though.  I've never had a problem with coming up with an idea or even writing some.But here's the problem, I suck at finishing what I start. So I'm hoping that remedy that. The story I'm working on now, that I probably won't publish here anytime soon, is now sitting at around 23 pages. My first goal is to make it to 50 pages. And if the story is done there then it's done and on to the next one. If it's not done then I'll shoot for 75 pages. Should I actually make it to 300 pages I will be shouting and singing off key! I figure, like everything else in life, the more I practice the better I'll get. And if I can start and finish a story in 50 pages then maybe the next time I write a story I can stretch it out. That's what I'm hoping for anyway. I will try to post some of my work, maybe some writing exercises I get from one of the programs I'm using. That's always fun. I'm given a person, a situation, a conflict and fifteen minutes to write.


And along the way I'm going to promote a few books. You may have noticed the little Amazon box here with a new Stephenie Meyer short story here. I love Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series and I'm excited to see she's coming out with something new. My customers at the book store will be excited too when I tell them about it! So go pre-order it. It comes out June 5, 2010 and that's a great price! And order the rest of the series if you haven't read it yet. It's a love story. I heart love stories.

Thanks for coming back to my blog. May the creative juices start to flow!

UJ, if I do hear of one I will be sure to let you know! Maybe Peretti or Dekkar will write one for you!

My comment was tongue in cheek.

I can't wait to read Bree's first person account of being a new vamp. . although I expect lots of blood.

I'm going to pre-buy tickets to Eclipse for Sam and I. . .wanna join us?

I'm glad FCF is back, I always enjoyed it - you have flair for writing. Can't wait to read your first book either!

LOL, I think Eclipse might be a good movie but I'll probably wait until it comes out on video to watch it. I'm cheap when it comes to movies. Yes, I'll pay $26 for a new book...ok, actually I won't because my discount rocks and I pay somewhere in the neighboorhood of 40-50% off. But I will pay $13 for a new book but not for one ticket to a movie. LOL.
