    I'm a fan of Tally's words about my query. Made me laugh my ass off.

    I meant my non-romance ideas from before I officially became a romance writer.

    But I do like CMRH's idea a lot

    Glad to hear it! I need to get started on my beta stuff in a little while, including Grimace. I've been all over the place since yesterday and very distracted.

    ETA: Ohhhh. Well Karla...we all have those regrettable early ideas. (I'm guilty of what was prettymuch a rip-off of Sailor Moon blended with Magic Knight Rayearth. Including random people who are naturally blonde, but 100% Japanese.)

    Thanks Tally it wasnt too Harsh, actually it was just the kind of response that brings up my many questions on how to write this query for such a complicated and twist fulled book like mine... Also answered you confusion on the title the Monsters.

    I hear ya, Kidd. I've been through that with snowstorms (we'll see how my new school reacts to tropical storms).

    I'll be...answering ChaCha questions and meeting up with a girl from my Comp II class, I think. And hopefully writing/beta reading.

    I hate that I keep finding songs that fit the second and third book in the series, though I dunno why I hate it.

    dude, they don't need to fit exactly. I played Taylor Swift for a torture scene. It's just about putting on music you like that makes you feel... writerly.

    Yes Tally, yes you do.

    And Lisa, prettymuch what she said. I have "This Piece of Poetry Is Meant to do Harm" by The Ark that ALWAYS makes me feel like writing and it is in no way anything like anything I've written.

    I'm doing a musical outline - the problem is - I find loadsa songs that fit later in the series rather than Underdogs. It's mostly for inspiration. I mostly listen to albums when I'm actually writing. I have a feeling I'll be listening to a lot of Glee and classic Disney, lol. Except for the 'Matthew in prision thing' scenes.

    If you're wondering, I don't feel ready to write it yet. I feel like I'm cheating on Suns and Stars. If that makes sense.
