Writing, Writing, and Writing. Did I Mention Writing?


Writing, writing, and more writing. I’ve been a busy little beaver over the last few days. Of course, I’m working on my blog entries but I’ve also been working on a new book. (Since the other three I had going were lost due to screwed up life situations) I have the first chapter rough draft finished. I wrote out the plot lines and a thirty chapter outline. I also wrote another article for InMichiana’s November issue. I’ll have an article in the October issue too when it’s released.

I still have an article to write for Inside Granger, but I have a few weeks yet before the deadline. I’ll begin making my contacts for that tomorrow. I figure I’ve written somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 to 10 thousand words over the last couple of days. Is that a lot? It feels like a lot. My fingers are sore. So, I think I’m going to take a break for the remainder of the evening and curl up with a good book.

I’m currently reading “Breaking Dawn” by Stephenie Meyer. It’s the fourth (last) book in her “Twilight” saga. The other two books are “New Moon” and “Eclipse”. I have really enjoyed all of them so far. I’m about 1/3 of the way through this last one and liking it as well as the others. “Twilight” is being made (has been made) into a movie and will be coming out in theatres in November. Yes, I have plans to see it. If you haven’t read it give it a shot. And now, off to the book.

So you would recommend the Twilight books? One of the barristas at B&N gave me a plot overview, and I thought: this sounds like watered down Buffy redux. I've been curious, but leery...

I'm glad your computer situation is resolved. Writing! Wonderful.

I have really enjoyed the Twilight books. I've bought the 1st book for 2 of my older daughters and they both love it. Now, I don't know if you, personally, would like them. There is a strong romantic theme in them. Think Anne Rice meets Whitewolf. For those of you who are not familiar with Whitewolf; it's the gaming system used for Werewolf & Vampire the Masquarade.
I think the plot is strong. I think it's well written, and I was easily absorbed into the story and the characters. Meyer is an English major who obviously loves 19th Centurary Lit. So...I think I naturally have a bond going there ;-)But...all in all,yes, I would recommend the books.

Thanks Charmi. It's good to hear from you. Sorry I can't make the Bucket. R works nights now leaving me without transportation, and A has wrestling practice on Wednesday nights leaving me without a sitter as well :-(
