Well, okay, so maybe I’m not that… um… well, maybe I haven’t reached a Spongebob Squarepants level of excitement, but I am pretty pleased.
I’m going to Cornerstone after all, so hurrah!
And, if I don’t finish it before Thursday (I probably won’t), then I’ll be reading one of the vampire books that I skipped in the series… and maybe, just maybe, I really will sprout little bat wings are start flying around.
(oh please, darling, you know I know that won’t happen, but it is funny to picture! Just like Kerri picturing me coffin-shopping and telling the people that I meant to sleep in it… I’m sure it’s funnier to picture if you aren’t me!)
But yeah, Katelyn and Mum and I are leaving at a really early hour of Thursday morning (I will likely not have gone to sleep… that’s how early it will be) and we’ll be coming back on Sunday when Cornerstone is over.
And somewhere in there I shall have turned 21. So, yay and stuff.
Umm… what else?
Oh, yeah… I owe Kerri about 8 pages now.
I have writer’s debt.
It’s hard to write though because my characters are changing things on me. Like, the first two characters that my main character met—I thought I knew them a little, since they were my characters, but now I’m thinking of them and it’s not at all like I originally thought.
For one, I still don’t know how old Mel and Eleanor are, so that’s bugging me… I thought she was older at first, but I don’t feel that way now… I think he’s older… but I also thought that Eleanor was evil and that Mel was stupid… and now I sort of think that they’re both a little stupid now, but not evil…
It’s quite confusing to get to know characters when you’re writing them… you’ll think that you know them, and then you realize that maybe you don’t actually know them after all… sort of like real-life acquaintances.
I’m also confused because I thought that Gunnar was going to be sort of riding the fence on whether he was “good” or “evil,” but now I sort of feel like Gunnar is the villain after all… but I don’t know some of my other characters very well at all, so I don’t know how he’s getting away with being evil.
Dunno how old he is either, which is equally as frustrating.
I think Kerri is right. I should call her and we should talk about this a little. Maybe she could help me out in pinning down my characters a little bit more.
It would be much more helpful if I could get Stacy and Katelyn’s opinions, but they haven’t read the pieces of this story that I’ve written up, and they probably wouldn’t fuss about some of the details that I would. Plus, they probably would be completely disinterested anyway. Blah.
Why don’t I have more writer-sympathetic friends and relatives? It’s really frustrating sometimes…
I think I may change Mel’s name, but I don’t know what to. I need to figure out how old he is first.
Maybe I’ll go eat some crackers… or see how long my mum thinks it’ll be before dinner. Maybe I’ll do both!
I had flying ants invading my space again this morning… and yesternight. It’s really maddening to not be able to figure out where they’re coming from. It really really is. I hate bugs of all sorts when they’re in my room… they should just stay outside where they belong.
Something like that.
Well, I haven’t anything else to say, so I’ll just go before I ramble much more and take up a lot of space.
Reeser: Fun stuff, English.
Reeser: *falls over*
Melody: It bothers me sometimes…
Melody: Oops… *picks Reese up* Sorrys…
Reeser: English is fun, I just hate doing work with it. *is picked up*
Melody: *carries Reese around*feeds him a carrot* ^_^
Reeser: I’m… a bunny o.O *is carried around and fed*
Melody: That’s what my mommy calls me… I call my bunny… a miniature puppy… o.o So… you could be… my miniature bunny!! ^_^
Reeser: Bunny… puppy… lol, it’s all the same.
Melody: It is! ^_^
Reeser: If I were part bunny, and part dog, would I look more like a kangaroo then?
Melody: Hmm… You just might!! That means… I’ll call you my miniature kangaroo!! ^_^
(I was… a wallaby, I guess)
