Wolfy Goodness

ok.. since I don't really have anything interesting to say.. i'll just give a little WIP to make you hungry for

The Changing began as it always did-- painfully. For nearly twenty years he’d been this beast and it hadn’t gotten any easier, though he could change at will. With an inhuman growl, it began. Marek could feel his skin boil and split, black fur seeming to grow out of ever-widening gashes. His back arched painfully, forcing him to his knees. He felt burning knives stabbing all over his body as bones cracked and shifted. He screamed as his jaw dislocated, elongating to the squarish muzzle of the wolf. Claws broke through the ends of fingers and toes that formed into heavy paws. Though it was only seconds, the pain felt like an eternity, drawing a howl from deep in his chest as he burst through the door and into the forest below.

Well.... are u hungry for more or do I have to play rough??

Florence + The Machine - Heavy In Your Arms [FULL] W/. Lyrics

This song is used on the newest Twilight soundtrack. Now I know I'm not exactly Misses Positive on the Twilight front, but the soundtracks are fantastic. Anyway.. this is my new favorite song. Definitely should be added to the Hellsong playlist.

Sleepy Day

I am so sleepy today. And I really wish that it was because I had been up all night writing. No, I was having airport adventures. But its alright-- the person being picked up is here safe and sound, so that makes it all worth it.

I'm babysitting my niece today and I have to say-- its probably a good thing I don't have kids. I feel as if I'm not entertaining her enough, but again-- I'm so sleepy. But I did play Candy Land and Hungry Hungry Hippos. So I guess that counts for something. I would add more at this time, but really-- I have no words or wisdom nor am I particularly clever today. Maybe more after I have a nap and a shower. *yawn*

Oh yeah.... and adding to my wordcount... yeah...

Yay for Saturday!

Its finally Saturday-- my favorite day of the week. Today will bring shopping my my sibs, maybe a little writing and definitely some coffee. I definitely recommend weekly or monthly shopping days with your siblings. If you don't have sisters, go make some friends who can be LIKE sisters and have at it. They're kind of awesome! If you're a boy--- uhm.... go to Hooters with yer boyzz.

On another front, I have a friend on facebook whose boyfriend referred to something as "awesome sauce." What the hell is that? And its not the first time I've heard it. Awesome sauce. Is this the first sign that I've really become old and uncool? Well, no.... its probably just one sign among many, many others. But perhaps I'm looking at this all wrong. Maybe I should be using this as an opportunity to coin new and ridiculous phrases (i.e.-- moron face, asshat, and piss-wad). I'm seeing a trend--- all of them are derogatory. Hmmm....

As for writing, last night I managed to pound out about a thousand words in my notebook while lying in bed. At the moment, Beauty and the Beast is definitely taking somewhat of a BDSM turn. Which I think is AWESOME!!! Nay, it is awesome SAUCE. And no, there is no big hairy guy with tusks in this story. You'll just have to wait and find out what the twist is. I also managed to turn my contract in to my publisher last night. Which I'm sure made her happy, considering I'd only had it for 4 days before I turned it in. Hope she doesn't think I'm one of those people who can't meet deadlines.... I am, but she doesn't need to know that.

And BTW-- a friend of mine said the colors on my blog made her eyes bleed. I say she's just getting old.

Some progress...

So I've made some progress on my layout. It only took me until 3 A.M. looking at a bunch of templates online to find one that I can live with until such time as the part of my brain that processes HTML comes to life.

On the writing front-- have you ever wondered why you're the most productive at one particular place? For example, some days I can sit in front of my computer at home, the wiener dog yipping around my ankles (and sometimes taking a ginormous shit under the desk) and write 3,000 words. Other times I can sit here all day and barely squeeze out 300. But I can always-- ALWAYS-- write at the Starbucks. I don't know if its the caffeine, the pretentious air of all the people sitting at tables with their laptops and java, or the dulcet tones of the bean grinder devouring a billion coffee beans at once. But I always walk out of Starbucks with at least 2,000 words gleaming in my notebook. If I could mimic that same productivity at home, I'd have written at least 3 novels by now.

My point is this. Find a niche and do what works for you. It may be insane. It may be unconventional-- but do it. JUST WRITE. It doesn't matter if you have to hang upside down with your netbook strapped to your chest. If it works, don't knock it.

I am NOT technical, damnit!

I am an artist. I always have been. Whether it be drawing, painting, acting, singing or playing the saxophone badly--- I have always been an artist. Which implies that I am in no way technical or analytical. I seem to be unable to reconcile my artistic sensibilities with this stupid layout. Why is that, I wonder????

Good Morning!

Good morning, sunshine. The earth says hello.... or does it? I'm not sure. The fact is, I'm not sure what the earth is saying because I'm still asleep myself. That's what staying up 'til 2 in the morning writing will do for you. So here I am, awake at 11 A.M, blogging. Now what I should be doing is writing a blurb for the back of Hellsong.... working on my erotic rework of Beauty and the Beast... even dragging myself to the shower. But no.... I'm here, pouring out a ridiculous stream of consciousness onto the page.

But wow it was way more fun.
