Bad Idea

It is a bad idea when a multi-million dollar company relies on a Windows based OS! 

History has shown us that it will crash!!!

Today was a Good Day

Today progress was made on the writing front. I wrote over 5,000 words on the novella that follows up Twisted Proposal. I am going to step away from it for a week to allow my brain time to think. This is also allow me to think of different ways to develop a story. In order to be considered a novella, it has to at least be 15,000 words. I have 1/3 written.

Zumba was a go tonight. Surprise I took a week off. I would check out clubfitzfitness, if you haven’t already done so. Especially if you like to dance. Today I did 22 videos woot woot!! I am planning on going to the gym tomorrow, but we will see what happens!!  Wish me luck.

In other news, my father is coming down tomorrow and is going to stay for the remainder of the wee. It should be fun!! I hope he doesn’t get bored. I won’t be home much. I work 12 hour shifts everyday :(. I might even work on Saturday. Gotta make sure my check is big!! 🙂

I hope everyone has a good week!

Twisted Proposal is out on Sunday 8/30!!!

final cover

Jail is the last place fifteen-year-old Addison Solomon expected to wind up when she ran away. Not that this is a big surprise; her life has been on a downward slide since her drug-addicted aunt died, leaving her alone and penniless.

When her long-lost father appears, whisking her away with him to his mansion and second family in sunny California, Addison soon discovers that her new wealthy relatives are not exactly people she should trust.

In other news I have a ton of writing and work to catch up on.

Friday

Well another week has come to end.

I wrote a boxing script for class and I think it turned out pretty good. We are finished eith our analysis of the hurt locker and focusing on another great film, American beauty. I love this film and can’t wait to write about it.

As for my other class I am focusing on the lovely and very boring Faulkner! It’s getting better towards the end though. We are suppose to be looking about this story and how it relates to race. There is one scene that involves another race. 

As for the contest update, I have heard from the short story challenge. I didnt make it ti round two, but a good friend of mine did, no word on FFF contest and the Serendipity. Maybe next week. 

In other news April is going to be very exciting. We have to A to Z challenge and Camp Nano!! I hope I get in a good cabin of fun writers!! Also I songed up to be a part of the SNHU Alumni board. Woot woot!! 

Well thats all for now folks.  

 

Catching Up

I have come to accept a few things in life.

First being that Winter in the mid-west is now in late January to the end of February. Why does this matter? Simple because my work has decided to adopt an aggressive attendance policy.

This brings me to my next point, I”m already on a written Final for using my sick time. Now I have plenty of vacation and personal time left. There’s just something about waking up and being able to call off. Yep that’s me. Nice to meet you, I like to sleep in. This is my argument for being a writer.

Also have you heard about Mars 100? What do you think?
Mars 100

I can only imagine what this is going to look like. I can only imagine every space horror movie. I mean it’s Mars. Come on. Imagine the possibilities. I want to know who the 39 people from America are.

In other news I have to have my tonsils out. Who knows when? They were suppose to call me today, but didn’t, go figure. And then I found out I have irregular shaped red blood cells. No sickle shape, but….I’m worried. No answers as of yet.

Now I”m going to write until the wee hours of morning, because I can.

Day 5

So I wrote 7000 words on my novel for Nano and realized that I want to change my story. So I am now playing around with ideas!!

I will let u know for sure if I change my current pace.

Tonights plans? Writing 20 pages worth of papers. Wish me luck! If there is any writing in me I might work on nano.

Hope all is well out there in the writing world!!
