Catching you all up. =]

As usual, I have ten billion and thirteen things to do.

Like, for instance, the day after I got home, I had to go buy my college textbooks. Luckily, for me, I had scholarship money for my books, so I didn't have to pay a dime. I guess the stresses I put myself through are worth it.

College is going alright. It was an adjustment at first, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I have a great GPA, at least. And I'm not failing Algebra. =]

And I'd like to tell you all that I am about to post this INCREDIBLE BLOG complete with PICTURES from BOSTON and SALEM -- but, I'm not. At least, not right now. I have a ton to do, as stated before, and a couple things have to be done before that. But I figured I'd be polite and let you all know I'm not dead, and that I did have a wonderful time.

I also finished the rough draft of my WIP, and while waiting to begin revisions, I'm working on an older manuscipt's rewrite. And my wonderful friend / critique partner just got through reading B.O.E. (to refresh: the manuscript sent out to agents) and gave me an AMAZING critique that I really needed. So, I hope to work on that a tad when I get a chance. But back to the WIP -- I hope to work my butt off to get it super shiny edited by January so I can start querying agents about it.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: I'm writing a play for my old high school that will be the spring play. The spring play is a HUGE deal, so I'm really excited to be writing it, as well as being a major part in the casting/directing process.

And I eventually have some articles coming out in print, but I don't know the exact date. I'll post when I know, and I hope that all of you will buy a copy or twenty. ;]

I kinda think I need to get away for a while again. I was thinking about New York in May. I might go to New Orleans sometime for a brief and cheap vacation. Either way, I want to get OUT OF MISSOURI.

Oh yeah -- Don't forget to check out the amazingness of my review blog:

Well, I'm off to write (as usual).

Soon has finally arrived. I can't remember when soon started. Oh well, onward. (I found Algebra to be easier in college; that was almost 10 years after H.S. too.) College instructors usually know their subject and how to teach it. But time flies by so faaasssttt! Yeah, textbooks are so expensive you would think their authors are rich, but not so. Someone gets all that money; that's for sure.

You're a big tease. Build up my hope for photos, then dash my dream to pieces. You write Young Adult Horror, don't you? I should have known. Who needs bloody photos anyway. Okay, the movie director.

Congrats on the critique. Hope you can get some college credit for writing, casting, and directing. Even one hour of credit would be better than nothing. Check with your college.

I will patiently await the other stuff you mentioned, photos included. Try coming back soonER, next time. Soon takes too long. No, that was not an Oklahoma joke. I always thought Missouri would be a nice place to visit, not a nice place to escape from. Escape From New York. Now, that's a movie, but Escape From Missouri? Okay, it worked for Truman and Twain. I'm outta here!
