So the demon book has been shelved yet again. This happens over and over again. I just think it's awfully close to my heart and makes it hard to work on. I think I'll take a step back for a while, maybe try to get some solid outlining and notes done on it, and then start up again later.

Instead, I'm working on a few other things. I'm thinking of starting the revisions on Beauty, the novel I started for NaNoWriMo (which I might just try again this year, depending on work). I'm also working on the roach story.

Didn't place in the contest I'd entered it in, didn't even get a rejection letter. Poo. So I'm working on fleshing it out more (and changing some things which I now find really cringe-worthy). Once I do, I'll submit it around for real. Right now it's about 1700 words. I'd like to get it to 3000, but I don't think that is possible unless I continue past the ending I now have. If I do that, I could very well double it. I'm not sure. I'll have to add in all the little things I've got in my head (and I did quite a bit of that tonight), and see where it stands.

So that's where things stand now. More later, when more things happen, as always.

It took Mark Twain 15 years to write Huckleberry Finn, he wrote two or three novels between beginning and ending it, and set it aside countless times.

So, it's okay. ;)

I like to write too.

Thats right, keep at it. I've only been goofing around with LJ for a couple of weeks now. I want to network with other writers. I'm going to 'friend' you hoping you'll reciprocate. Do you have any writing samples posted?
I have a sample posted at my journal if you want to look (still a bit rough I think).

Hi, I have started a new community for Nanowrimo adults. I just started it, so it's not that active yet. I'm hoping you will join and help get it started =)
