Yes blog friends, I AM blogging! I finished writing Twists of Fate on Saturday night (or actually, wayyy early Sunday morning) and it did NOT take me long to jump back on my blog. Weird. I have the same sense I did when I first started blogging... like... no one is actually reading this. That is a scary way to blog. I mean, if I don't believe anyone's reading, then I can potentially write A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Bad guy laughter! Maybe? BWA-HA-HA-HAAA!! Oh yeah, that felt good.
So technically I should do some sort of re-cap deal or something... what have I been DOING? Besides writing, I mean. What books have I read? What movies have I seen? What the heck happened with the house-hunting saga-to-end-all-sagas???
Rules of Attraction
City of Glass
(Probably other books. It seems like more. I'm sooo bad at updating my goodreads account)
I never remember movie titles! I'm sure there were funny ones and definitely adventurey types!! Umm-umm-I don't remember and I really refuse to spend a million years on blog posts anymore. Tah-dah!
I have a house!!! Oh my gosh *wipes away residual tears* House-hunting is finally over. I never, EVER want to move again. If someday I'm forced to move I would rather find a prairie somewhere and build a house with my bare hands (or whatever they did in prairie days) than house-hunt *sniffle*
Oh! Last bit of news: I went to SCBWI conference last weekend in L.A. and had so much fun! It's an incredible conference if you write YA. I met the lovely Shannon Messenger from Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe but I missed practically EVERYONE else who I "know" from blogger and twitter! Oh well. In some great news, instead of battling L.A. traffic, I got to be roomies with my super amazing critique partner Dana Elmendorf! If you don't already read her blog A Squirrel Amongst Lions you REALLY should! She's doing a whole bunch of SCBWI segments and everything! And if you're not the writerly-type, she is funny and adorable, so go read her blog anyway!
Time for revisions... not on Twists of Fate though. That story gets to rest while I take on revisions of an earlier book I wrote called Wishmaker. You can read an excerpt on my website if you want. Click here.
