Uh-oh, here we go now.

I feel stretched in too many directions. People want me writing for their projects, and I have to write for my projects....Flatiron City is up again. I'm hoping to get my murderer completed for the mystery I'm writing. I should have a pseudo-final bio for him/her by the end of the day. Not much else to say. Work is cool. I'm excited about my trip to England.

I can only imagine

I was walking the mall that I work at, and I walked by an arcade/restaurant/bar/bowling alley/billiard hall (whew), and I noticed a very familiar song playing overhead, I Can Only Imagine, by Mercy Me. I was so stoked....that's awesome. So is God. That's all I really have to say.

Update from the Ellery Queen

I just checked out the Ellery Queen's website, and their submission standards are quite simple. All I have to do now is purchase a few issues, study them, and write a story to submit. SWEET. This will be fun, and hopefully it will get my name out there. I'm not worried about making money at this point, but it would be cool. They pay 5 to 8 cents a word (that's right, Gabe, they still pay by the word :P) Anyway, that's all for now.

*o*

Ha ha ha....So eHarmony has a new feature. They explain what your "ideal match's" personality will be. I answered those questions as truthfully as I could, but apparently, I'm supposed to marry someone who is very conservative, avoids pop media to remain pure....but someone who wants to be rather sexually active. I know for a FACT that I don't want to marry someone who avoids the media. I love pop/rock, movies, some TV, a lot of "controversial" books and so on. Whoever I marry needs to share my love of conscious expansion.

That's all.

No it's not. I seem to be lacking greatly in my posts. I feel so scatterbrained, as if I can't organize my thoughts well enough to post something decent. I don't want to just give up and leave ya'll hangin'. I enjoy writing, and I'm looking forward to having new work. I'm going to solicit a couple of magazines to try and sell some short stories. Something like the Ellery Queen (I think I spelled the name right). So with that said, my new project that I'm working on is.......A MURDER!! Myster:-) I'm not going to kill anyone, not a real person, just one of the many people living in my head. Admit it, you can't be a successful writer without being slightly scitzo. Anyway, I'm writing a murder that takes place in London, hence the change of plans for my Vacation. Ha ha ha. Giles is no longer a fantasy writer. I'll return to my first love, but I want to write mysteries. YAY, excitement.

full time...WTF?

I have three writing projects going on at once....I should be getting paid for this. Not that I would pay to read what I wrote....well maybe, but still. I just feel like I'm spending all of my free time writing, which is good because I'll actually get better this way. I can actually type quickly again too. So, that's it, I just feel like I'm writing full time now, even thoug I'm at a dead end in two out of the three projects. That's only temporary:-)

?

Wow, all of a sudden I've become slightly overwhelmed with writing projects. The group I'm a part of has an assignment out this week, and because I didn't post last week, I need to get something up for Flatiron City. Pluse my new project....wow, I have a lot to do. On the bright side I've been rather consistent with my new project, getting stuff done that I actually want to get completed. I'm really enjoying this, and I can't wait to share it with people.

If I haven't told you what's going on yet, don't get offended, I'm just waiting until I have an idea of where I'm going. I want to think things out for a little while without "outside influences" getting in the way. I greatly value your oppinions when it comes to my writing, but I need to keep this inside for now. I have one person I am talking to, but that's because she's helping me with my research. In time, I will need my friends from Quill and Think to tell me where the flaws are, but if you know what's going on behind the scenes, you won't be as valuable a resource as I need you to be. This is my project, and I need your understanding and support. So, if you are at all hurt, please don't be. I need to do this my way, and I need time to think things through.

Not again

So, tomorrow I have a meeting scheduled with Kevin, my GM, and David, the Asst. Manager, to talk about things that have been going on in the Cafe at work. I'm really upset and ready to quit, that's how bad Tom's been lately. I don't know how to deal with this situation because I'm afraid Tom's going to try to turn things around on me and I'll get in trouble. Just pray for me, I need to get through the week.

To Jolly ol' London I shall go

So I finally asked for the time off in April that I plan to use for my vacation to London. But wait, there's more!! I am going to do RESEARCH while I'm there. That's right, I am planning a new story. What's it about? I can't tell you because I don't exactly know yet. I have two or three people that I will recruit for the planning stages, but other than that, I'm keeping everyone in the dark!! HA HA HA!! Just keep this in mind, it'll be better than my previous book attempt...OOPS, ok so it is a book project, but I won't be posting it. Let it go.

Happy new year everyone. I had a great time at a party last night, lots of fun:-) Don't worry, I behaved.

Anyway, I have some good plans for the new year. Especially for Flatiron City! WOOT New year!
