    I think I may have the final scene for Underdogs -- the only problem is, it's a friendship/relationship scene, so in other words, I don't have an end for the main plot. This also means the scenes will be out of order in the notebook, but that's not a problem, cause I'll be marking scenes (1, 2, 3...) as I think of them, cause they're probably be out of order.

    Put fingers on keyboard and type words.

    I haven't had inspiration in a long time. I tried to write something but it didn't really work out.

    I have the frigging flu, so I can't plot or anything because I can't get comfortable, I'm miserable and I will get tired.

    I spent all day at a book festival, in which I met 12 different YA authors. Some of them write and publish 4-5 books a year (under various pen names).
    Now I want to write.
    But I have no ideas.

    The thing that sucks most about writing is the need to have both a desire to write and the ideas. I've had the desire for the last three weeks but no ideas.

    And I haven't had a ton of desire, but a million ideas.

    And now I'm off to bed. G'night, all!

    Just wanted to pop on and randomly announce that I did a lot for my non-fiction book today. Emailed all of the people I needed to regarding interviews. One very famous voice actress has already emailed me back with a willingness to do an interview. I feel productive
