I've really got to start coming on here more, I just get busy and forget. No guarantees I will come back, but I know writing is a stress reliever for me so I'm sure to be doing some of that in the coming months, when I have time. Plus, I miss you guys!
In a week, my entire life is going to change (hence the no guarantees.)
Next Wednesday, I move to my dorm room, and begin COLLEGE (dun dun duuuuunnnn)...
I'm a biology major, and I'm pre-vet. This is all pretty terrifying for me, to be honest. I've got my whole life ahead of me, and I'm really just praying that I don't fuck it up.
I'm working on finding my rescue pup a foster/forever home before I leave, she is with the awesomest rescue now so I'm not too worried. I'm definitely going to miss her though, she's been my favorite foster for sure.
Speaking of which, I'm pretty sure I'm going to go into withdrawals this year; I'm required to live in the dorms all year where there are...
NO PETS ALLOWED D:
I'll be working with rescues and whatnot to get my fix, but it will be weird not living with them. Well, next year I'll find an apartment and be able to foster again
Has anyone here read 50 shades of gray? I haven't, but I've heard a lot about it. I have it as an e-book, but I couldn't get past the first page. Present tense writing bugs me, for some reason. Does anyone else have that problem?
I've been working on Deal Gone South, and as my sister threatens me daily in case I was considering not finishing it, I think it's pretty good. When it's finished, would anyone consider being a beta reader? (They have those... Don't they?)
For now I've stopped working on In the Dark, I've been writing that in third person but I don't think that's the right narrative form for this, so I'm probably going to switch.
The short stories will be coming back, my problem lately is that I don't want to leave them as short stories, I want to make them bigger. What led Belinda to go into the closet? Is there a reason Jimmy wanted to go to the park? What happens next? These are the questions that lead to things like Deal Gone South, a short story that began with the phrase "I wish, I wish I was a fish", and took off with a mind of its own. It's madness I tell you, madness!
So, if I can get past the "CONTINUE!" minefield, there will be short stories to come. Stay tuned!
