His Name Was Charlie...

(Most of this has nothing to do with my writing. But if you suffer the non writing part you'll get to the writing part.)

Yesterday the most amazing thing happened to me. Well, one of the most at least.
My mare finally gave birth. It's exciting, twice as exciting as this usually would be, because last year her baby was a stillborn and so we've been waiting a while for this to happen. We were worried it would happen twice. Thankfully it didn't.
I just wanted to share the happy news :]
He's so adorable! Here's the pictures in case you're curious. I love him to death. :]
I nicknamed him Charlie Chaplin for the time being, since he has a top hat on his head. If only he had a little mustache too.
My mare is, of course, the bigger horse. Little Charlie is the small, white one.
And here's one just to show that this really is my new little joy in the world...
And now to speak of my writing...
I got a new idea for a new book. I know, I know. I haven't even finished with the others yet. But sadly this one won't leave my head. I feel like the main character in the novel, I'm hearing voices in my head! They won't stop! Please someone help me!
At least they're not telling me to KILL, KILL, KILL. That's a plus isn't it?
Either way, now I'm in the works of four - read it FOUR - novels. I don't think my schoolwork can survive this much writing time. Argh!
I have people waiting for the sequel to Shadow, and people waiting for the next chapter to 1647, plus my pride and joy at the moment, As Memory Fades. What's a girl to do?
I wish I were in my time traveler novel... At least then maybe I'd be dating a time traveler...

Birthdays and Bad Boys

This post has absolutely nothing to do with my writing... Forewarning you all...

So I had planned to have a huge party for my birthday, but sadly that didn't pan out, and so I ended up only having two people hang out with me yesterday. It started out amazing, what with a great see of Iron Man and all (I definitely recommend that movie, it lives up to its expectations in my opinion). Then my two friends and I went out for pizza (seeing as it was only about three?) and I saw another friend of mine who I haven't seen in quite a long time. That brightened up the day.
But the best part was back at my place, after the break for ice cream (I'm a food junkie, what can I say?)... when my best friend and I made dorky and silly cupcakes with random smiles and black eyes. It was an enjoyable evening, loads better than what I expected and loads better than having a huge party.
So that's about it... Just wanted to let you all know I was alive... If any of you even care. Mhm.
Until next time...

Stanford and Rizzo

^^ That's a link to my prologue of 1647. I finally caved in and added it to fictionpress (but believe me, it's copyrighted. Again, blame the nagging mother).
I also wrote two more chapters, so I am getting closer to finishing it and then having two books in need of a publisher.
So that's basically all I had to post about. Oh, and if you don't mind and enjoy videos on youtube, check out my latest one also based on 1647.
It's on my youtube account, which has a link to the right of this post (I think). The video I am talking about is the featured one on my "channel."
I hope you enjoy your first week of May (I know I will definitely enjoy my 2nd one. I turn another year older May 6th. Oh the horror.
Actually, on another note that has nothing to do with my books, I went to Stanford today. It was amusing, if I overlook the fact I had to get a shot and blood taken. Sometimes having a mystery illness seriously doesn't pay very well... (ha ha). No, but seriously, I don't think this doctor has any clue what I have either (like the 60 before him).
Okay, until next time...
Happy early Memorial Day to whoever reads my blogs, in case I don't post before then.
