My sister and I rendezvoused last night at Barnes and Noble. It was kinda a coincidence.

Unfortunately, they were two seperate B&N's, 1 hour apart from eachother. So sad. It would have been nice to be together. I was working on my book and could have used her input.

I got a descent amount done. I had a bit of writers' block at one point in the story, so it was good to cross that hurdle. I was working with pen and paper, not my laptop. A few reasons why: Erica was watching a DVD on it at home; my battery would have run out anyway; sometimes I just seem to work better on paper. So what I did was print out the last few pages of what I'd written so that I'd have an idea of where I was and where I needed to pick up.

Sometimes I think I'm crazy! My main character is a guy. What do I know about how guys think?!?! But my inspiration came from three other characters/people, all of which are guys. And to complicate things, he's an artist. What do I know about art? Absolutely nothing! Which is why I love wikipedia!

Well, I gotta go. I'm in the middle of typing up what I wrote last night.

[Erica is currently playing "guess who?" by herself. This girl can play Uno and Guess who! She's so smart.]

I need some of your inspiration. I have an idea floating in my head for the past month, and I have to get the ball rolling to put it on paper.

Barnes and Noble is one of the greatest places on Earth. The genius that put the train table in the kids' area? He or she must love me.

Ooh a male artist, that should be interesting!

silverneurotic- that really is the hardest part. I was having trouble b/c I had the ideas in my head but was having a difficult time writing it.

becky, mom- Well, I'm gonna be writing under a pen-name. I'm not sure about having people I know reading it and knowing its me; I'm very self concious. But I'll let my bloggers know somehow. Granted, it may take YEARS still. Ugh, what a slow process

burgh baby's mom- YES, I love the train table. Best idea for sure

'liya- Yes, it is a bit interesting. He's actually based off of an artist: albrecht durer. And that's all I'm saying for now. [B/c of reason explained above to becky,mom...]
