Where Did That Go Again?

Hi Everyone!

I’m sorry about being gone so long. I think I’m finally getting back to tip-top shape ;o) Thanks so much for all the kind words. You guys are the best!

I have a confession… I haven’t been writing a ton. I know, I know. It’s been a little nuts. But. I plan to change that soon ;o) I did read WAKE by Lisa McMann and it was fantabulous. What a great book! I love her style, her short sentence & timeline structure are perfect for an almost ADD, like myself. I’m just about done with FADE, which is also awesome! GONE is next!

Anyhoo. yes, that’s Jesse (otherwise known as Jonathan Groff) over there from Glee, one of my fav’s on tv right now, and I’m a little obsessed with him. His voice is like Butta.

So. On to writing stuff. I’ve noticed as I was going over my MS that the sequence is getting a little off. I keep moving the chapters around, and realize. Crap! I can’t do that, because this has to happen here, and that can’t happen if this happens… etc. You know what I mean. Even though my Scrivener is amazing at helping organize; it can’t change the words I have written down. So… this is my current issue with my MS. Certain things have to happen in order for it to make sense. Duh, right? LOL

Any of you have that problem when revising? Ha.
I won the “guess a number” contest over at my dear bestie Tahereh’s blog TH.Mafi Call Me Tahereh, Um. If you’re not following her. I would change that ;o) She’s awesome. Well, she sent me a lot of cool stuff.
Wanna know what?

A pop-up Moby Dick graphic book, a couple a super cool notebooks and a fabulous magnet with a quote from Judy Blume. Yes. all of that, for choosing the number 79. How cool is that? Big, huge THANKS to Tahereh!

I’m going to be guest blogging on a couple of my favorite blogs The Variety Pages & Writer Revealed this month and in early June! Yay. I know. I can barely keep up with my own blog, but it’s fun to visit others! I’ll be sharing why I write YA on Dolly’s and An Everyday Romance story on Jamie’s! I’ll post links when it’s time. No worries!

Welp, that’s all I got. I hope you are all having great weeks! I’ll be back tomorrow with the featured blog.

Be there or be circle. (why is it always square?) something to ponder whilst you wait.

    I saw your RT on Twitter (about the Nashville auction), and followed the linkies through to here. I think I’ve seen you around before (especially because we have Melanie in common), but don’t know if I’ve come to visit yet. Shame on me. :/

  6. I’m so happy to hear you’re feeling better! You’re had such a tough time of it.

    With a previous ms I made a major timeline shift and spent months and months correcting it. *sigh* Not a lot of fun – but it did make the story so much better. Good luck with it!
