Greetings All

Just an update... I'm actively writing again! I wish I could share my excitement about this with all of you, but that's hard to do online. Anyway, I've just reached page 98 of a new novel and I'm sure that by the time I'm done writing today I'll have over 100 pages. Very exciting. Obviously, I haven't been publishing this story to fictionpress. I've decided to take a different route. I'm going to finish a first draft, work on edits and then contact some agents/publishers. It's time for me to not be scared of this process anymore. I think I was spurred to action by now 17-year-old Alexandra Adornetto, author of Halo. According to the publishers of her book, she was just fourteen years old when she published her first book in Australia. I mean, seriously? I need to step it up. I could work on some of my other stories, but they need more work and I'm too excited about this one to really start on anything else.

I hope everyone is well!

New Project

So, it is my intent to start my new project today. I made a goal for this year (the year started on Sept 19, which was my birthday) to write "at least" one page every day. For some reason, I have yet to do that and it's already been three days. Therefore, today I must write three pages--which hopefully won't be too difficult. What's the project? It's yet another re-write of my very first novel "A Fallen Gift." In the process the title may change because there are currently several "fallen" books out there in teen fiction today. Pity since I first wrote the novel some ten years ago before the fallen angel business was big in teen or adult fiction. I hate feeling like "Just another one of those books" lady, but alas, that's what's been on my mind lately, so I need to write.

Now, it's time to stop procrastinating on my blog.... :)

Hey all, I've just joined Goodreads (click the link to get to my page). It's like a virtual bookshelf. Hopefully one day I'll be able to promote my own books here. In the mean time, check it out, join, and add me as a friend! I will be adding more books to my page as time goes on. If you have any great book recommendations, please let me know!

Also, thanks for the support and understanding of my choice in regard to The Jade Bracelet. I've gotten a lot of great notes and supportive comments. I appreciate that. I'm glad that people are enjoying A Starter Boyfriend again too. It'll be up for a few months (and I'll post notices when I'm preparing to take it down).

I'm not writing at the moment. Perhaps it's mild depression. Blah.

The Death and The Resurrection

I have made a difficult decision... I will not be continuing "The Jade Bracelet."

It's hard to return to a project that is nearly two years old. I've lost the drive for the characters and want to start something new. Because I've made this decision, I've decided to re-post (for a limited time only) "A Starter Boyfriend" on FictionPress. I've uploaded all of the chapters and they should be readable within the next few hours. Trust me when I say that I'm sad about this.... But, I suppose that goes with the writing territory... some projects just don't get finished. I might return t this in the future, but for now it's not going to happen.

I'll likely leave "A Starter Boyfriend" up to read for at least six months, unless I hear that someone's stealing it (or any part of it) and then Im' removing it RIGHT away--no warnings.

Blahh... this decision makes me sad, but at least I can share another popular story with everyone again. Sigh.
