  1. Hi guys! I'm just trying to get the message out that I am not abandoning my stories. I only have internet access on my phone, and have for several months! Sucks, but it means no updates yet. Hopefully everything will come together about mid month and then I can write again!!!

  2. This year is crazy! Expecting my baby boy in mid October, and moving to a new house in the beginning of July! Hopefuly I can start getting some decent writing done before the move. I am not sure how long we will be without the net.

      Many congratulations on the new house, the upcoming baby boy, and just enjoy the crazy. It's all worth it, every speck of nuts! :D

      Congratulations, indeed!

      Good luck and have fun!

  3. Cant wait until I can go for more than an hour without getting sick! Pregnancy is seriously killing my writing spirit.

      No doubt! Too many reasons to avoid writing, you don't need that one, too.

  4. Uhg... I suck at editing my own stuff. Just love how I can look like a complete idiot sometimes. Oh well, going to go fix it now.

      I do too. :) Unfortunately, I read through my chapters in a place that I can't fix the problems, so I forget about them.

      I keep reading my stories over and over again, and every single time I find a mistake in either grammar, punc., or style.

  5. Feeling a little better today. Hopefuly I can start concentrating on writing again instead of sleeping most of the day.

      It's a bit belated, but I'm glad you're feeling better.

  6. Got to love that the state declairs a travel ban, and both my job and my father's job decide 'hey, we don't give a crap if our employees have to drive home in a blizzard'. So glad my dad got home safe, he works over an hour from his home.

  7. All the schools in my area are cancelling for the storm tomorrow... makes me wish I was a teacher. Missing snow days!

  8. I've been reading so long my eyes are burning... going to bed!!

  9. Can't wait to get out of work so that I can celebrate my bday with a healthy dose of Witchblade and hubby time!

  10. Looking for a new job. Unfortunately that means my updates might not happen as often, because I am spending a lot of my normal writing time job hunting.

  11. Today the world lost an amazing woman. RIP Grandma K., I hope I can be as brave and smart as you. You are loved and missed <3

      Grandma's are special. The female elders. Sorry, you lost her. Glad you have good memories.

  12. Merry Christmas & happy holidays all!

      Thank you! And to you as well!

      Hope the holidays treated you well, and the New Year brings joy!

  13. Found the coolest Scrabble game today! It is a full game and all the peices are chocolate!

    1. Raymy

      Raymy

      Um, does that mean you can only play it once? Cuz you're gonna end up with a lot of missing pieces.

    2. botticelliangel

      botticelliangel

      well if you eat the pieces, yes. :) but its still cool

    3. Cuzosu

      Cuzosu

      Sounds good - fun and delicious all at once.

  14. I can't wait for the holiday season to be over so I can have time to write again! On the other hand, overtime rocks

    1. Raymy

      Raymy

      It IS a dilemma. Money vs. creativity. Both bring personal reward. I think, with money, comes freedom to be creative.

    2. Cuzosu

      It's a balancing act, that's all. It'll swing one way for a while, then veer to the other side suddenly and without warning, and sooner or later you find it all fairly well evens out if you play it right. Or so I've found. Does depend rather heavily on the "with practice, everything improves" theory, though.

  15. Yes! Finished nanowrimo! *victory dance*!!!!!

  16. I am starting to go all ADHD with my writing... I have six documents open at once x_x maybe I should stop for the day before I start getting confused

  17. Rocking my nanowrimo! Reached the halfway point today!

      Awesome! :D I'm plodding along.... past the halfway mark and pushing...

      I have added you! good luck for the rest of the month :D

  18. cinnamon buns, sex, money, and election day... what do all these have in common? They are the only things I will skip out on an extra hour of sleep for :P Woke up early and voted!

    1. JayDee

      JayDee

      only the buns for me

  19. Today is brought to you by the letter "F"... frustrating!!!!!

    1. BronxWench

      Hope you all weathered Sandy well....

      Thanks BW. I got lucky, and only lost power for 4 hours. My parents still haven't had their power return, but at least we are all safe. Hope you and yours are all well too.

  20. Getting ready for Frankenstorm (aka Hurricane Sandy) I really hope it doesn't knock out my power for too long. Last year's October snowstorm left me without power, water, or heat for two weeks. I would rather not have a repeat.

  21. Talking to my hubby about writing: good idea. Talking to my hubby about pwp: bad idea. All I got was some funny shit about giant dicks and cat sized sperm O_o

  22. Feeling kinda depressed. I wish people at work would stop asking me when I was having babies. Just because my coworkers are pregnant doesn't mean that there's "something in the water". I'm just going to go off and write something ultra depressing now...

    1. DemonGoddess

      If and when it's time for you to have a child, you'll know. Don't let other people push you in to something you may not want or may not be ready for.

    2. Lisbet_Adair

      Lisbet_Adair

      Well, if that "something in the water" is sperm, they've got a fair point...

  23. My best friend convinced me to participate in nanowrimo this year... maybe I should name the novel "Tangent", because that's what it will consist of without editing!

      I bribe mine with letting her fix typos. BUT she's not allowed to rewrite anything until December 1.

    3. botticelliangel

      botticelliangel

      hmm... I think I might need to work out a system for this. It sounds reasonable to allow yourself to fix typos. I might have to limit myself on rereading what I wrote.

    4. JayDee

      JayDee

      Good luck! It's a lot of words but I'm sure you can do it. Yay positivism!

  24. Making some tea, taking some cold medicine, and writing... thats how I plan on spending my day off!

    1. botticelliangel

      botticelliangel

      well plans fell through, ended up doing online testing for management all day because one of my co-workers is going to be demoted and I'm taking her spot... yikes

    2. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      Are you at least feeling any better? (I have to actually leave town to get a day off... :D )

    3. botticelliangel

      botticelliangel

      I am feeling a little better, thank you. I hear you there...
