Well, it's been a while since I've looked at FI. I haven't really hashed over all of the stuff going on in real life -- it's too long of a story and frankly, a lot of it now runs my life and I'm grasping for some semblance of normal right now. Writing is my normal and I want more of it. That said, it's surprising and weird to go over FI -- some I love. Some I just hate. All of it has me completely excited to pull it out and finish, with some changes of course.

The main thing I want to change is the beginning chapters. I now see some of the problems others have brought up (hey, it's only taken a long absence to do it!). I'm basically planning to hack off the first 2-3 chapters and completely rework them. So far, I've decided to start at a different place, changed my mind back, changed it again -- etc etc -- about a bazillion times. It's frustrating, but fun. I've found myself losing my train of thought mid-conversation, mid-crisis-work-problem, mid-whatever, and I'll end up thinking about FI. That's a GOOD thing.

And wait for it....wait for it...

I'm putting together an *cough*outline*cough* -- which, in all honesty isn't really an outline. Well, okay, maybe it is, but being as 9/10ths of the book is finished, it's really just a cheat sheet to make sure I've got the timeline, etc. correct. *right* But it's something I've been meaning to do for a while -- I'll need one anyway so I can turn it into DA with The Book. Whooot whoo... That last bit got me rather excited. :) Yes, the end is there -- it's in sight. I just need to rush out to meet it!

No more excuses. And no more letting life get in the way. *firm nod*

*Says she who needs to put it into gear lest she be late for work!* LOL.

Hunting For My Muse

I'm working on FI. Yes, I am working on FI.


I've been trying any method to break back into a writing routine. One way I read about is to create a "playlist" for my books. Erm, I'm not sure this will work, as I can't usually listen to music while I write, but if I come up with a good song, I'll be sure to jot it down and add it to the list.

For the first, we have WALKING AFTER YOU by the Foo Fighters. While Gabe and Maddy will have their own songs, this one is for Maddy and Drew. It sums up their relationship, though they may not realize it just yet.

I'm In!

The move is "over." I put that in quotation marks because the packing will go on for days...maybe weeks. Where did I acquire all of this junk?!?

It's a mystery. Truly.

That said, my internet is up and running and I am now a very happy camper. It's an odd feeling to be unconnected to the world -- even for just a couple of days. (g)

Yes, I'm an internet junkie and darn proud of it.

More later. I have a few books I want to talk about... :)
