Due to frequent complaints of pop up ads, navagation issues and comment problems, I've moved my blog to wordpress. You can find me here now: www.tsueversteeg.wordpress.com Stop by and say hello!
As a writer, I count it as a priviledge to admit that I hear voices in my head. Most of them are character voices, so I'm still safe. Please don't alert the nice men with the tight white jacket just yet. (Okay, now I've got that song 'they're coming to take me away, ha ha' stuck in my head!) Anyhow, back from the tangent, I have issues with too many voices at once. It is that period of time between edits on your current work and writing your new work in progress. I have to keep my characters semi-fresh from Click! so I will be able to have the presence of mind to work on the edits when I get them, but I also have to listen to my new characters. How do you stave off the onslaught of old H/h when you are trying to listen for the new H/h?? I have alerted my hubby more than once telling a character to shut his or her yap. So far I've received nothing more than a raised eyebrow from him, but the day will come when he considers calling in those nice men with the tight white jacket. Am I the only one that this happens to? Have I stepped off into la-la land, or is this merely a new passage as a writer? I guess I am asking if you think I should seek mental help...wait, don't answer that unless it is merely based on THIS subject, please.
I got this kitty picture in the same email as the one from a week or so ago, so I thought I would share another cute funny with you all. Switch your thoughts to the original Star Wars movies...if you are old enough. If not, go ask your mom and dad to look and see if they think this is funny!
I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned.
Staring at the blank page before you, open up the dirty window. Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find. Reaching for something in the distance, so close you can almost taste it. Release your inhibitions, feel the rain on your skin. No one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in. No one else, no one else, can speak the words on your lips. Drench yourself in words unspoken, live your life with arms wide open. Today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten.
I break tradition, sometimes my tries are outside the lines. We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way.
Today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten.
My cover for One Wild Weekend, done by Trula Peace Wyatt, is up for book cover of the month!
You MUST go I would really appreciate it if you would go to www.erinaislinn.com to vote for my cover. Click on the right side to link to the voting page. Please?? Pretty please with sugar on top?? Am I getting close yet?
I know that everyone has done it before, but I seem to do it more often than most. I open my mouth (or post on a forum) without running it through my common sense first. I know that the written word can be misconstrued easier than the verbal one, but I don't discriminate when I stick my foot in my mouth. I can just as easily offend someone in person as I can online. I guess this must stem from my natural desire to goof around and joke with people. Some folks don't care to be teased and are quick to jump on the defense. I've read somewhere that there is a smidge of truth in all joking, but I'm here to tell you that it isn't true...at least for me. I like to laugh and I want people to laugh with me. Why can't I make that aparent to everyone? Life is too freakin' tough to take it seriously all the time.
Wow! I had a goal to make Click! over 50,000 words so it would have a shot at going to print and I'm happy to say that I hit 50,400 and some change tonight! I even wrapped it up neatly with an ending that I love. Usually it is a huge struggle to tie it up and get an ending that I'm happy with, but not this time. With a title like Click!, I guess that I shouldn't be so surprised that everything...err, well, Clicked?! I am so hyped up on adrenaline tonight that I may not sleep...until I get to work tomorrow, of course! *teehee* Lisa will keep me awake, I'm sure. She'll unleash the beast if I start snoring! (nothing but love, Leese!)
Okay, admit it, you know what I'm talking about. No, not about anything chemical induced or even sexual in nature. As a writer, it is that rush when the muse and the planets are all in perfect alignment and the words just seem to write themselves and fit together in perfect written wonderment. You know what I mean. That giddy, little girl (or boy) feeling like Christmas Eve and you can't sleep a wink. I live for those days and try my best to be patient, but why--oh why--can't this be a more frequent, regular occurance? My muse happens to be the most fickle, narccisistic bastard I've ever met. If he didn't give me such pleasure when he came around (what, four or five times a year), I'd hunt him down and beat his punk ass. Anyone else fell my pain...know the pleasure of which I speak? *sigh*
Actually, it was more like I was beotch slapped since I got hit by three people. That would be Maria Shanti, Jennifer Leeland and Christina Castle. Geesh, NOW they wanna come to my blog!
Here are the rules:
A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
