    YAY, ALLY!

    There was a really weird man sitting two seats away from me on the train home today. He really freaked me out.

    I MISSED YOU SO FUCKING MUCH. SO I'M HAPPY NOW.

    Also, my IE updated itself to the new version for some reason. I don't like it as much.

    Why on earth are you using IE? IE is the crappiest of all possible browsers.

    I'm working on CC&C stuff at the moment. You?

    I'm working on two things:

    WRITING: Sticks and Stones, a boy/boy retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

    PLOTTING: The Memory Book, a dark story about a girl over a year as she battles depression after the death of her best friend. I called it romance, but I don't know if it actually will be.

    Awesome. I'm technically revising Weeping right now, but not at this very moment. CC&C is getting my focus. I'm also writing Lifelike, but...same thing.

    I've never done anything in diary format and doubt I will, though I do have one novel that I plan to eventually write which will have some sporadic diary entries.

    It also has 'flashback' entries. How I'm going to write them, I'm not sure yet.

    I'm not sure if I want Prudence to find Connor (present LI) attractive straight away or not...

    I've found that the physical attraction tends to be there at the start, even if it's a very small attraction.

    True. I was just worried it's become a cliche in YA.

    What cookin' good lookin'? ha ha
    So... I started free-writing. I wasn't 100% sure of what that meant but I guessed it was writing without any real purpose. Am I right?
    Well, I started to just write anything. To help the juices flow, so to speak. I mean, otherwise, ew! lol
    And I think I ended up writing a story without intentionally doing so. I had no idea, no names, no idea where it's going, but for some reason it is starting to sound like something. But to carry on with it, I have to just... forget about anything in it. Just write and see what happens. I'm not even thinking about it. It's like... I don't know. If I concentrate on what I'm doing, the writing starts feeling forced.
    Mmm I'm hungry. :P

    Nah, because teenagers tend to look at each other and have that attraction. It's just realistic. Even before I started thinking about my boyfriend in a boyfriendy way, I thought he was cute.

    And that sounds interesting/awesome/baffling xD

    ETA: HI THERE TALLY
