Kat - My mom is so supportive. But she's always thinking I'm gonna be so successful and make a lot of money, no matter how many times I tell her it doesn't go that way for most authors. She's so silly.

I'm going to be writing too. Once I make it to Sbux.

Have to say, as nicknames go, I'm not too thrilled about Parasite ...

As absolutely tiring as it is, and as much as I miss the old instructor, my social dance class is looking up.

Yay, BG!

I am loving writing the third person version of Tristan and Dulcie's first meeting.

Do you think that a girl who has no memories of her childhood, just abuse and neglect, would be open for a relationship? Or would she be afraid? I've had people telling me both "/

I really need to start writing again. But I generally am so busy, and feel so tired when I'm not, that I feel like I can't even think about it.

ETA I think it would depend on the type of abuse, and where it came from. Of course, I don't know much about that kind of thing.

The abuse is sort of physical and emotional abuse, from her family members. It's lead her to depression.

Then I would say she'd be scared of being in a relationship, or something along those lines.

I <3333 THAT.

Lemme know if you ever reveal the playlist. It sounds dorky, but I love finding out what other writers are listening to when working on something.

Oh, really?

Funny thing; Kieran is one of the bad guys in my novel.

Oops. Haha.

I'm off to shower, and then my nan wants to try something with my hair. Yikess...

I'm telling you, it was my iPad's spellcheck!

But, I have to admit, it was funny. I couldn't stop laughing for a while after I read her reply...

You know what I just realized? There's nothing in my novel that seperates it from any other Epic Fantasy.

Curses.
