You’re a Dialogue/Character Writer! What kind of writer are you?brought to you by So I took the quiz above, and it seems to fit right because 90% of my stories seem to be dialogue. Kinda kewl so I thought I’d share the link. Watched Don Cherry’s 16 DVD tonight with dad (yes the exciting Saturday nights I lead…gasp hard to think I could have gone up to bed at 10:15 and declined) Janne makes 4 appearances, which we of course paused and rewound (though I’m still wonky with the fast forward feature on the computer) so we ended up watching the same chapter 3 timesRead More →

Chapter 2… is DONE… Birds are singing, people are dancing…well least I was earlier in my chair lol But its done, the love scene is finito :o)And I can move on. 3’s pretty well done, just need to go over and figure out if I need one paragraph I wrote earlier on in there or not then onto 4. I’m still trying to get how he brings up this friends with benefits idea…oh well I’m sure it’ll hit me Sorry for boring ya’ll with the day-by-day over the chapter 1-3 saga, combined with my still unease over writing the love scenes and cold medication andRead More →

Its official…I just lost my voice *sighs* Oh great fun. Let’s hope no one actually wants to talk to me today.Here’s what I’m doing now:Current song: Kid Rock mix…track #3 Rock and Roll Pain Train from the AutoRox show…Binder: STTA notes open on desk with 3 gel pens trying to find latest chapter 3 revision notes.On the good side, asking about Temptation chapter length got a couple responses. I don’t have to worry about an eleven page chapter being badRead More →

A funny little tidbit…Formerly cute guy (haha) at hockey game last night was talking to one of the women in the silent auction trailer. Don’t know if he said this to impress me or not, “I’m real good friends with Raffi…” Now a) Raffi (I’m omitting last names, don’t wanna turn up in a google search lol) is one of two guys my 44 was dealt for…I detest him, can’t stand him and he sucks as a hockey player…[and no I’m not completely biased because of the trade]so basically trying to impress me by saying your friends with him has the complete opposite effect.To quoteRead More →

Happy Weekend…Happy Saturday all!I’m hoping the rest of the day/weekend is better than so far. Just spent five hours installing, uninstalling, reinstalling and updating Norton Internet Security 2005. *feel the excitement* Its sooo annoying to have to stop and reboot after every little thing it seems. I counted 8 reboots and I think that wasn’t even all of them. The worst part was/is I couldn’t get much done while it was downloading so no email, no websites, nothing. So I grabbed a hard copy of chapter 2 which now will bleed into chapter 3 and started rewriting. Weird random piece of Lissy trivia, I seemRead More →

Hmmm, a girl could get used to this…Last night I decided I didn’t feel like staying home so went out to the hockey game. It actually wasn’t too bad if you stayed near the bonfires. So we’re out there and checked the auctions, I’m in the lead on the Kipper picture *happy dance* that baby’s going to look great above my monitor :o) So we move from the one bonfire at the far end of the rink down to the one near the zamboni entrance and dad’s talking to his friends out there and one of the volunteers tells him that a 40 foot HummerRead More →

Two entries in one day…feel the luv…or sheer boredom :o)On a break from writing/editing right now, woohoo lolWhat to do what to say… Hmmm, well waiting till Rodney’s on tonight. I luv that show. Ever since the Xmas episode its been my #1 show (other than RAW of coursey course) Might pop in a wwe dvd later and see if that shakes free any creativity. I think I’m about 27,000 words shy of finishing the book *groan* and I’m definitely stressing about it. First chapter seems okay, second chapter still hasn’t come back from being proofed in the early stages and 3 seems laggy andRead More →

I’m bored…RAW ended forty five minutes ago…I still think Flair’s behind the whole Smackdown stalking Batista angle because really…JBL just isn’t this smart. He probably hired the driver and its just such a coincidence that pile of boxes was RIGHT there for Triple H to push Batista into. Yeah uh huh…So I’ve got 15 minutes to kill till the Bachelorette starts. Woohoo, tonight’s the overnight dates which should prove interesting. I think from the previews one of them mentions Andrew (uh oh) so should be worth watching (I still like Andrew though, he was cute).Writing update – hitting 32000 words, probably stay up most ofRead More →

Procrastination – A Writer’s Best FriendSo here I am, researching cell phones, checking email and doing anything to avoid trying to name Vin, Ava and Mimi. I need last names for the 3 and can’t come up with a single one. Vin’s really stumping me because I can’t have a name with a N in it and that’s all I keep coming up with. Joyful… I’ve got chapter 2 pretty well mapped out, still need to smooth out a couple scenes but I’m gonna plow ahead and do that later. 3 might not be bad and 4 should fall into place. Ate lunch and editedRead More →

Yadda Yadda Yadda…I’m stalling on chapter two of STTA a little, have the *gasp* sex scene (or lead up anyways) out to two readers to look it over and see what they think. So far one says its hot and did a few corrections to it…mostly commas, word choice. I might leave it the way it is though since its still in my voice…have to see…Other than that, spent my Friday night at the worlds longest hockey game.www.worldslongestgame.com Hit the link and take a look…its really something. 40 guys playing 240 hours of hockey to raise money for the cross cancer institute. And Brent’s playingRead More →
