2008, and 2009

2009... not quite there yet, but there aren't many minutes until then. Wow.

When '08 started, it felt like forever. Now it's practically gone, and '09 will seem like forever. It'll be a small slug, and then slowly pick up pace as the year goes on.

2008... the year I became a teen (YES!), the year Brother1 turned four (WHEN will I get used to that?! I still think he's 2 sometimes!), the year my beautiful sister had a spy party, the year I had my first Blogger Anniversary, the year my daddy got a new job, the year Brother2 turned one... the year I reached page 100 on K.o.D.... This wonderful, wonderful year.


Anyways, I have a couple resolutions...
  1. Publish K.o.D. by Christmas (yes, I will do it this... er, next year)
  2. Learn 50 new words
  3. Be able to carry some sort of a conversation in Latin.
  4. My joint pains will be GONE
  5. Learn to play a five line piece on the piano--two handed!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 2008--and will have a better '09!!!

Christmas Presents

Nana bought us a few presents... And they are AWESOME!

First, I have three tiny boxes of VEGAN truffles, I have Inkspell and Inkdeath (which I have been utterly longing for), I have Solas (a Celtic band I adore) CDs and one DVD of them playing, pen book marks and a pretty blue shirt.

Music, Books, Blue and Chocolate... You can't go wrong with that!

Galaxy ;-)

Merry Christmas!

Wow... Christmas already? It really snuck up on me this year! Well, I wish you all this best on this special day!

Merry Christmas!

Friday FIllins #34

This week's Friday Fillins! This should be fun!

1. Said the night wind to the little lamb, pass the ketchup please, if you can?
2. The first Noel, the angel did say follow the star, on this blessed day.
3. It's snowing Over the hills and everywhere, so we must drive, with every care.
4. It came upon the midnight clear, a rain hard and loud to hear.
5. If you ever get down, and the world doesn't look so bright, just fake a handsome smile, and Let your heart be light.
6. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Everywhere you go! There's a tree in the grand hotel, one in the park as well, the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow... oh! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, soon the bells will start... And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing right within your heart! Right within, your, heart! (I just couldn't add new lyrics to this one)
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to maybe watching Journey to the Center of the Earth, tomorrow my plans include enjoying that Daddy is home ALL DAY(!!!), and Sunday, I want to have a great time with Nana! (she's coming over)

If you'd like to do your own Friday Fillins, find the link on my side-bar, or use this one.

Merry Christmas!

The first sticking snow of the year... oh, wow...

Daddy just came home from the store and told us it was snowing. I look out the back door and sure enough--SNOW!

I throw on the nearest shoes (which turned out to be Daddy's) and just ran--or, as close to running as I can do with these awful joint pains--out there for a few seconds... or more.

It was falling like crazy all over my glasses... falling from a deep blue-black sky, blessing the earth with it's gentle kiss... Now I'm cold to the very center of me from my little 'run around in the snow' without ANY snow gear at all (just shoes ten sizes too big and my shirt and pants) time, but it was so beautiful, and so worth it.

I love snow.

News on Kings of Darkness

I am so, so excited about my book! I'm at page 143. That's write--er, I mean, right--ONE HUNDRED FORTY THREE! I've never, ever, ever made it close to this far in a book, even though I must have 143 started story ideas on the computer somewhere.
I normally come up with an idea, type it for a while, get bored, come up with another idea, and months later stumble over the first, read it, then wish I'd typed more cause it was rather interesting, then not know what I was planning to do with the plot, and even if I do remember and get myself to type more of it, I get bored again really quickly.

It's different with K.o.D.. I'm actually really excited about finishing it. Really looking forwards to holding the finished story in my hands... Super excited about what my characters are going to do next.
Honestly, I hardly ever know what's to happen next. I believe in writing as you go along... You know, typing as you come up with ideas. True, I do have some things I know will happen, and some answers I'm waiting to pull out, but for the most part I don't know what I'm doing, and I think the story is more exciting because of it.

Last year I wanted to finish K.o.D. this year... I don't think there is much of a chance for that. I will, however, be surprised if by 2010 this book is not finished, and I expect it might even be published. Still, if I'm really lucky and type lots of pages a day, I just might be able to finish it in time for the new year. Highly unlikely, but definitely possible.

If you want to know the latest news on my book, I have an area on my side-bar dedicated to King of Darkness. It has how many pages I've written, a link to a 'sneak peak' of my book, and if there's anything else about K.o.D. I want to say, it's said there.

Please buy my book when it comes out!!!

If I was going to die...

I don't know why, but I've been thinking about how I would feel and what I would do if I found out I was going to die.

When I first found out about it, I would probably be quite shocked at first, then I'd cry for a while, then I'd realize that if I'm going to die soon, I'd better have the best time of my life RIGHT NOW.

My number one worry would be how sad my family would be when I was gone, so I'd probably spend a lot of time trying to convince them not to worry. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to die, I want to live to 154 and see my great grandkids, but I'm not scared of death... I'm actually sort of looking forwards to the rest after a hopefully long and happy life.

I'd probably type Kings of Darkness up like crazy... I'd have to condense all the four books I plan to write into one, and I might not even finish that in time. I would probably ask Dear Sister to finish it for me.

Another worry of mine is that Brother1 and 2 wouldn't remember me. That would devastate me. I'd want to be a part of their life... Someone that they would love and adore and remember forever. Brother1 would probably remember me a bit, but #2...

Anyways, what got me thinking of this? I don't know. But, I'm definitely glad I'm going to live!
