Hi world. I just checked my email for the first time in awhile. And I saw that I had a happy comment on this bloggy here. And I felt quite cheered.

And I now have fresh resolve to go work on my little teen fiction project-- Alethea as Pie. It is 6 chapters and 10,000 words old so far.

I made the mistake of emailing it to my sister a few weeks ago. She only read the first chapter. Oh. Mmm hmm. It's ok. Why don't you write a fantasy book instead? Fantasy is more interesting. Vampires are so hot right now. You should do that instead. Oh, well, I'm so busy, I'll try to read the rest sometime soon... It's ok. But you should write something with magic or vampires.

Sigh. I am easily discouraged and derailed.

(Plus, I also bought book 12 of the wheel of time series, which neccesitated me re-reading books 1-11, which was another bad time-sucking move on my part. In fact, i am still not done.)

So. Amanda. Pay attention! Please do not forget about poor little Alethea. Find focus! Figure out chapter 7! Help Alethea as Pie to be born. Write the story. Go-go gadget go now.
