I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
Even though you broke my heart and killed me
And tore it to pieces
And threw every piece into a fire
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

Almost done with half the book, it feels o u t s t a n d i n g to be back in a writing groove again. It really hurts to have all this drive and desire to write and yet nothing comes to mind or what does come to mind ends up feeling like shite to you.

Music helps too. I listen to a wide assortment of things from Panic!At the Disco, The Offspring, to Sade, Frederic Choplin, and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers. Kittie helps me with my rage. Sometimes my characters get angry. It helps.

So at the moment it's 3am and I really should be asleep, instead I'm listening to the Scott Pilgrim vs the World Soundtrack and working on chapter 9 because sleep eluded me. I have the weirdest dreams, my mind tries to make solid connections of things that don't exist.

Ugh. Okay, I'm going to TRY and get some sleep again. Or something. FML.

Aperture Science:
We do what we must because we can
For the good of all of us
except for the ones who are dead

But there's no sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying 'till you run out of cake
And the science gets done and you make a neat gun
For the people who are still alive

Finished edits for Call on Me. I gave a lot of thought about my writing, and what I want to do. I obviously am no longer writing the way I used to, where it was practically an obsession and I was pumping out novel-length stories in like, months time back to back. I'm also struggling to find my groove, and I haven't quite nailed it yet. Hopefully my brain will start cooperating soon.

In any case, I have 3 June releases this month. One is a 16k story, another a novel, and another a very short story. I've been working on trying to fill in submissions to publishers, but I'd rather work on The Arcanus Series and The Centarian Chronicles.  There are so many things I could work on with those two.

For Arcanus, I have a few stories:

- How Lavern and Rhiannon got together. I started this on Six Sentence Sunday but the more I wrote, the more I wanted to write and six sentences a week wasn't cutting it. So as a side project, I'll be working on that in bits and pieces.

- Briae and Verinel stories. With Destined coming out soon, I can't give away too much. However, I can see Briae being a likeable character, and I'm sure folks would want to read more about her. I personally like writing her, she's a lot of fun. I thought about making this a comic too, but I'm not sure how much time I'd be able to put into it.

- Taking the first half of Arcanus and turning it into a novella. I thought hard about this one, but yeah, I'm just going to take it out and make it its own short.  Try plotting out the rest. There's a lot I can do, even with the first half gone.

The Centarian Chronicles is its own bag. I got a solid chunk of the beginning in my head, but that's about it. Not a big deal, though, I can just plot it out. Nine times out of ten, whatever I initially plot out will be changed 95% anyway, but at least it's a guideline.

But right now, I'm going to work on Transcendence. I thought Arcanus would be the first book, but it keeps getting pushed back. Transcendence and Arcanus take place at the same time, so I don't know. Well, so does Dethroned, but it crosses over with Transcendence eventually, so it should come after Transcendence.


Brain, y u haet meh.

Currently Working on: Transcendence plotting.
