Today's events

I got in 1100 words this morning. I am so excited that I am almost done. I hope to get another 1,000 words or more tonight. I should be done in 7 days if I get 2,000 words in each day. 2 weeks if I write 1,000 words a day. Well that's all for now.

Details about YA novel

I am happy to say that this novel is almost done. I have about 13,845k to go and then it gets sent off to the beta reader. I hate editing and I hate the query and synopsis process. I am not really good at it no matter how much I try. Thank goodness for beta readers. I will keep updating at every step so check back for more.

Publishing News

It appears that all is not well in the publishing world. We all know that people were not buying books like they once were. Now I am really scared because it is going to be even harder to get an agent. As if that it is not hard enough already. Do your part and buy some books.

Things happening today

Nothing is really happening. I have been working on the YA and I am about to start searching for a title to it. I can not stand not having a title. I also gave the city a nickname until I figured out what I wanted to name it. I thought after writing so much that things would just some to me but I have had no luck. Well update soon as things happen.

What's happening in my life

I just found out that I may be a big sister. I am 25 by the way so this is shocking to say the least. I am going with my mom to her ultrasound. I am already thinking of book ideas for this! No just kidding. I have three children and I tell you what. Sometimes they drive me crazy. Looking around at the mess they made last night I can see, food, clothes, and toys. It looks like a hurricane went through here! I have been working on the YA novel which is now at a little over 20K. Aiming for 60,000 or more. I have not updated so sorry about that. Life gets busy. Chow for now.

Obama, Obama

Well as everyone knows now Barack Obama will lead our nation. I am beyond thrilled! I hoped and prayed and I voted for the first time. I just hope that we can pull together this great nation and make it rise again.
