Endust for LJs

*Dusting off poor LJ*

Agh, well family trips are done with for a bit, and I’m feeling like a writer again! :D It’s funny, I haven’t been doing much actual new WRITING in several weeks. Either I’ve been editing or tweaking, or just analyzing crits. Finally, things came together and it seemed very obvious that I needed a new first chapter. Not a re-write of the old one, but a ~*brand spanking*~ all NEW MATERIAL first chapter!

And the funny thing is that some part of my brain really wants to hate me for this. I can hear it thinking this should suck, and why do I do this, etc. But the leather-clad whip-bearing dominatrix part of my brain is like, YES, YES, YES!!! (*_*)

I’m ENJOYING it! I didn’t realize how much I *missed* writing fresh stuff until now! I LOVE spending this extra time with my MC – I feel like I’m getting to know her better. The new scene/chapter came to me pretty much fully-formed once I realized I needed it. I take that as a sign that it was ~*Meant To Be*~. Of course, once I add this chapter, I will have to go make drastic alterations to some later chapters because the information is getting juggled. But for now, I AM WRITING. I AM HAPPY. I get so much confidence in this part of the process. *Yay.* All you doubts can go wait your turn for the next round of crits! :-P

And in other REALLY COOL NEWS… The first two chapters of Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers are available online (release 12/23)! I have to say I was all set for her book to Rock My Socks. BUT – now that I have read these two chapters, all I can say is: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MUST READ THIS BOOK ASAP.

  1. You know, I was starting to wonder if you were making a bunch of f-locked entries that I couldn’t see and was sad that I couldn’t see them but now I am happy to know it was just a general case of LJ neglect. ;) WELCOME BACK TO WRITING ENTRIES, BB!

    AND YAY FOR WRITING NEW STUFF! Yes! That’s the best kind of re-energizing! If it came to you fully formed it is probably ~*Meant To Be*~. EEE YAY WRITING AND BEING HAPPY ABOUT IT! *cheerleads*

    And that last paragraph…

    *TOE-SCUFF*
