This n That

I got nuttin.

Life has been getting hectic again and it feels like I don't have 2 brain cells to rub together and write an interesting post. But the guilt started getting to me, so here I am.

I've a bunch of really good 'keeper' books that I should blog about--and will later. Just about all of them are old releases/romance, but boy do they stand the test of time.

And wonders never cease, I'm been writing tweaking the wip consistently, haven't really move that much further ahead re page count, but doing lots of layering/fleshing out and getting anchored better in the character. I've had a horrible year with the writing and now I'm just trying to get all the industry/craft stuff out of my head and just focusing on the words on the page. I printed out the first 20 pages of the wip today to do a hard edit/read through. It's good. I like it. It feels like progress. I only have one writing goal this year and that's to finish a ms. Lately that's feeling more doable.

Okay, at the risk of getting my throat ripped out by one of the little beasties from "The Lost"...and I'm glad you're tweaking, but just because you sound a little stressed--a reminder:

"G'tdam'it, I'm gonna be happy this year!...I'm going to focus on the things that make me happy and bring me peace...
I'm going to get into interesting discussions/debates, and laugh my ass off about plenty of things, instead of bitching about the assholes I have to deal with...Oh, yes, and I'm going to write. Cause when I'm happy, and at peace within myself, my brain won't be cluttered up with stressors, negativity and worries. I'll be free to be creative, and to write."

Arrgggghhh!!! Blogger just ate my (individual and lengthy) replies to all of you!! Here's the short versions:

Maybe it's the change of weather? It's supposed to be spring, but the weather is still crappy. Probably bringing everyone down.

Jordan, thanks. Right back at ya, babes!

Dude, glad you're showing your face more online. For a second there I thought you were going to do a quiet fad....

Sash, I'll join you in that day dream! Sounds puuuurrrfect.

Raine, yes I am stressed. So thanks for reminding me of that vow. :-P Gotta say, tho, I'm in a much, much, much better place now than I was then. :-)
