The Public is Way Too Obsessed
I really think that the "Brangelina" thing has gone too far. When fetuses become pop culture- well, that just speaks for itself, now doesn't it?

Chomping at the Bit
I wrote my first novel last summer. It was a historical romance, about 250 pages in length. I had a good story idea. I can't say it was great. I thought it was freakin' awesome at the time, but it was good. But the book sucked. The plot development was weak, the character arcs were pretty non-existent. It was quite apparent (upon re-reading it after a time) that I didn't have the faintest idea what GMC was.

But the way I look at it, it was awesome practice. I discovered I had the juice to go the distance and complete a novel, and that's huge. I saw the holes in my first effort, and I can avoid those mistakes with this one. Ideally I will continue to evolve as a writer.

So this time around, I'm doing a TON more pre-planning work. It's great, because my plot and characters are really blossoming, and I can tell this book will be awesome. I'm just dying to jump in and start writing it! But I'm outlining the plot right now, mapping out all my scenes. I'm quite sure this will make the process of the first draft a lot easier.

Time to get to work.

This Sickens Me
I was watching CNN today, and they had a story about rape in the Congo. I was touched deeply by the whole horrific situation. When I'm rich and famous, this will be my one of my causes. I'll leave the Cambodian orphans to Angelina.
