Miserable about snow...wouldn't it be great if...?

To tell you the truth, I have nothing to talk about today that's important. All I can talk about is how miserable I am because of the weather outside. Wouldn't it be great if Mother Nature was a real person so that we could knock the living daylights out of her and tell her to take hike? No, maybe say something like if you don't change the weather, we'll crush you like a bug until you won't be able to breathe.

That seems fair right?

Anyways, the worst part about the snow is that I have to be the one that shovels it. I hate shoveling. Hey, maybe when I get published I'll be able to pay someone to shovel the snow off the sidewalk. That would be great.

Anyways, I just finished the last twenty pages of my new novel Addicted.I'm hoping I'll be finished with it by March so I could start rewriting my first YA novel 'The Electric eel Bandit.'

Until Next time...

Still focusing on Addicted...Mig Writers website

I'm supposed to write every week but my writing has gotten my full attention (Which is a good thing). But I'm still searching on the internet trying to find sommething that satisfies my interest. Today, I went on a website that I haven't paid attention to in awhile. It's called the MIG writers critque group which specializes in middle grade/YA fiction. They had a blog entry a few days back on Influential moments. Andrea writes on her website that she had a breakthrough moment where she wanted to write for herself after being an educational book writer and has been writing all day, every day ever since.

At the end of the article, she asks what has been my breakthrough moment when it came to my writing?

I would have to say that my breakthrough moment is now. It's been two weeks since I've wrote 'Addicted' and I'm already done with the first two chapters. I have to say that it's way more concrete and polished on the first go round than the first novel of the Truson S.E.T. Series 'The electrci eel bandit'. I wouldn't be surprised if I made 'The Electric eel Bandit' the second book I send out to my future literary agent.

Okay, I think I answered my question for the day. If you want to see the atricle that Andrea has written, you can see it here.

A new draft is finished...An opportunity to try something new

Hello everyone

I'm sorry I haven't been writing on my blog last week. I got so caught up with this new story I'm writing called 'Addicted' that I haven't thought about checking up on my blog. I have decided to give the Truson S.E.T. series a break for at least two weeks so I can focus on something else entirely. I have to admit that it's been great so far. I'm almost finished with the second chapter of the novel so far (And I started on Feburary 1st!). I'm hoping to finish it up within a month so I when I do go back to 'the electric eel bandit', I'll be more than ready to make some changes to it so I would be able to send it out to literary agents.

So far, I'm really loving this new story and I'm probably going to spend more time working on this story then doing anything else. But, I promise I'll try to keep updating my blogs no matter what.

See ya later.
