I am re-starting a lot of things this week. For one, job hunting. The one I wanted and thought I had didn’t pan out. Boo! Second, my diet and workout regime. I fell off the wagon for a bit because last week was rather rough. And third, (and most importantly), I am re-starting a book I started about a month ago. I wasn’t sure what it was or where it was going, then I hit that dreaded 30,000 word mark, took a good hard look at what I had and said, “WTF IS THIS?” I even wrote about this issue in a recent blog post.
Well, I know what it is now, are at least generally. It’s gonna be another teen paranormal, but I don’t think that this one will be a romance. At least not yet. It might end up that way, but my lead heroine will have to jump through some major hoops first to figure out what the hell is going on.
I am really excited about this one. It is the kind of story that I would love to read and I can’t wait to see where it goes. I think it might creep some people out too, which just makes it more exciting.
So basically, I have to get back to behaving. I have to write regularly, and I mean every day. Then I have to make sure that other things go smoothly while I’m at it. Back to my work outs, back to eating right, back to finding a job, and back to writing regularly. Thank goodness I have awesome parents who like having me around and let me live with them. I have with friends with horror stories of their parent’s kicking them out on the mere basis that they can’t find work. Uh…where I come from that is a reason to put them up, not kick them out.
I think I was lied to for most of my childhood. You know that whole thing about going to a good college and getting a education will lead to a job and the grad school will lead to an even better one…and then when promotions come around, you will get it because you are the one with the higher education. Then you do and get out to see that all anyone wants is work experience because no one wants to get their hands dirty with having to train someone new. They just want you to have all the skills at the forefront so they don’t have to do ANYTHING!! GRR!!! Back in my parents day, you pretty much walked into a place and they decided right then and there whether or not they like you. Do I blame computers, the economy? The lies about getting a degree? The impersonal format of screening resumes these days? *head desk*
Anyway, back to work!!
