In the past 2 weeks I have come to a stand still and have had a total turn around for my Blog. Blogs shouldn't be all about Me, Me, Me! They should be about helping other people and feeding off of ideas. Inspiration for this? Jeff Goins. Check out his Blog at it is really good.

So, while keeping my Blog updated about the progress on Shadowed I will also be handing out tips and all of that stuff when I post. Things like writing, blogging, e-books, and who knows what else?

I better keep this one really short as it is nearly 4pm in the Mad House.

next post will be about Writer's Block. I have had a fair dose of that in the past fortnight.

Getting There!

Hey there!
I went 8 days without posting, luckily I reminded myself not to keep people waiting. I feel kind of stupid leaving my blog unattended for so long. I have been kind of busy . . . again. Unintentionally. To say the least, I got my head down and started writing. As of this second in 8 days or near enough to that, I have reached chapter 5 in my first book and 56 pages. So book #1 is going pretty well if you ask me.
   The sun didn't last long. The rain returned a little bit later and it is summer! This is apparently the wettest summer in a decade for my darling New Zealand.
   So as I was saying, I was working on my baby. The book. If I was saying baby meaning a person I had either been crazy and had a kid at 14 or meaning my little nephew. So, my father is hoping that I will get this book published and so is everyone else. My little sister is thankful that I stopped complaining about the events and ideas that I had that didn't fit into the book because I finally found a way and it is all going great. I have to make a decision here. If I publish the baby while I am still at high school then I would probably be writing more than studying and so I might wait till after.
   As I am typing this, the brief rainless patch we had is now over and it is pouring down.
   I need to get chapter 5 done and dusted so I can move on and make dinner for those in the Mad House. Babysitting tonight and this weekend. Who said I was complaining? I think that my book character who goes by the name Scarlett is actually lucky that she only has a little brother.
   Okay, thanks for reading this! I won't go two weeks without posting, if I do, you have my full permission to beat me up.

Mood: Annoyed. Sick of rain, rain, and guess what? RAIN.
Location: My cave. Keep out sign is up.

Sorry About That . . .

   Sorry, I kind of had a little slip up there. Silly Season is to blame, literally. When it comes around in my house, naturally when you are in a big family, it gets pretty crazy. And I was moping around trying to find other ideas for Shadowed, the current book (Manuscript, as my brother would correct me) I am writing. So, I definitely started it and am going to finish it sometime this year, but I still have to juggle school, homework, home, work and the book. Confusing, if you ask me.
   Also, I have posted a link to my new Facebook page so you can check that out. I made it an hour ago, so don't expect to find much. You'll find the link at the bottom of this page, its under Facebook Page. Also, please take part in the poll to the right! Oh yeah, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
   It was silent at the mad house for once, the little kids were/still are gone.
   So, I have to keep this one short. I have to get back to this book/manuscript and have it done by the end of the year. I am aiming to have it done before 2013, so I have about 270 pages left to write. I could do 1 a day and have in done in 270 days, but I don't like writing slow. I prefer just to stick with it and write as much as I want and keep myself entertained.
   Looks like the sun is finally coming out after 3 days of torrential rain. Yay!
   Well, have a great 2012!
   I'm out!

Location: My Magic Cave.
Mood: Reasonably Happy because of the sun.
