Hi BG.

I just finished revising the first scene of Weeping. On to the second one I go! Then I need to do some stuff for my NF one. I wrote up a nice schedule last night for working on it.

Keep it as a regular playlist or something. Seriously, that is NOT something to even START worring about =__=

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 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.

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
