Never fear, I have been reading and writing/attempting to write for the entire month (almost) that I didn't blog...:/
I had a wonderful idea for the 2nd/3rd books of the Violet's Monster trilogy, but since it makes the tone of the series completely different, I'm going to have to re-work the first book ENTIRELY.
Now, while I am a wee bit discouraged, I am also excited. I think the idea I had gives me an opportunity to delve deeper into the psychology of my characters and allows me to explore several different topics. So in that case, I'm happy. My plan today is to read the 5th rough draft (rough draft no. 6 is halted) and see what I can keep and what I need to scrap.
I'm also going to try some helpful changes: to make me more interested in writing, I'm going to change the color of the "paper" (Word document) that I'm writing on, and I'm going to pick a fun font to write in. Hopefully these two things will keep me intrigued enough to keep going. We shall see.
I have been reading:
Hush by Jeff Loeb & Tim Sale (A Batman comic) - Fabulous!
Gunnerkrigg Court - an online web comic put together as a book - Very Enjoyable. :)
I didn't finish reading The Uglies trilogy because...well, I just got bored. :/ I was not invested in the main characters AT ALL.
I am going to the library tonight or tomorrow to pick up some books about Digital Art, as well as Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs by Judi Bennett and the Emily trilogy by L.M. Montgomery.
Next post might be on how to use the library. Or it might be on writing. We'll see.
