And I’m sorry. I haven’t had much to say, honestly. Life is busy and I haven’t been writing very much. It makes me sad, but it’s also okay. I’d love to work on The Death Effect, but the characters are being very quiet. They don’t seem to want to speak to me. And that’s okay, too. Sometimes the mind just needs a bit of a break.
So I’ve been giving my brain a lot of rest. I’ve been watching a lot of movies and just relaxing as much as possible. It’s been very nice. I wrote a poem a few days ago which I really liked. I think right now my creativity is on the short-winded side, so I’m going to work my pen out with short stories and poetry. If I write anything interesting, I’ll post it for you.
Some good news for you: my novel, Twenty-Five, is a finalist in The Next Big Writer‘s Strongest Start 2010 Competition in the Romance category! There are six finalists in each category and there will be one winner and two runner-ups. I’m sure I won’t win anything, but I almost didn’t enter, so being a finalist is pretty cool!
And a little thing that makes me happy: getting a random text message from one of my siblings with a quote from Mean Girls or Friends.
