Forward march!

Second submission packaged and sent off, let the nervous waiting/dancing begin.  This is the part I dislike about where I'm at right now; waiting to here the verdict on everything I send off.  *sighs*

In brighter news, I may have stumbled on a possible anthology for something I've already got written. ^^ So, I'm off to work on polishing said already written bit while I wait for response from the newly discovered possibility.

Also, also, I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I'm reading Fifty Shades of Grey right now...I know, bad Lacie reading erotica of the straight, and psychotically popular, variety; but I need to know how to combat that bloody teenagers who'll come in looking for it since some media idiot said it was good for the fans of the Twilight series.  At least, that's what I keep telling myself as I giggle at the whole thing.

In other news; finishing my edits on the shifter story and doing another pass on the rejected story before I format it for self-pubbing ^^
Dear voices in my head, Can we try talking one at a time? It's real difficult to make sense of what ya'll are saying when you jabber together. Luv, plague girl

Time Travel story verdict

Time Travel story verdict is in with a 'thank you for your submission, but it's not what we're looking for' 
So, my first attempt this year is negative, but I've got several more to go, and I plan on tweaking the rejected story and putting together something myself *shrugs*

I bought a new journal...do you think there's a support group for journal addicts? ^^;

Ha! Shifter short is done, and will be on its way to my editors tomorrow afternoon ^^ going to sleep on it before I send it off *skips off to find chocolate*
I'm on deadline to finish my shifter short story by 10pm tomorrow night - that's enough of an excuse to order Thai right?

Some progress

Not quite ready to give up, but damn if writing this story isn't like trying to have a conversation with someone who has no understanding of your native language. :P Should hopefully be able to complete it tomorrow though.

So until that time, happy daylight savings crap!

Head, meet desk

I'm about ready to cry out of frustration.  This story I've been working on for almost a solid month is continuing to give me issues.  It's like trying to wade through drying cement just getting words onto the page.  So frustrating because I like the story; I like the characters and world, but it just doesn't seem to want to happen.  The draft I'm working on is currently version 3 since the beginning of February, and I've only got until this time next week to get the rough done so I have enough time to revise before submission.


In the not so frustrating side of my life:

Oh my god was this book amazing!  I started it at 7pm Saturday night, and was finished with it by noon Sunday.  Mind you, I read it in between work and sleep, so it might as well have been one sitting for me.  It was nothing like I expected, and yet, there were pieces of it I saw in the cover flap blurb that were so much greater in the story's course.

Another one of my taboo subject reads; this one dealt with a student teacher relationship.  But before you run away with your hands covering your ears, hear me out.  There is so much more to this book than just the forbidden relationship.  It's a harrowing story of one girl trying to find her way through life when everything she's been shown is falling apart.  

To quote 'a fairy tale with teeth and claws...you're going to want black and white...I'm not sure I can give that to you.'

Try it, I can promise it will suck you in.
