Happy New Year

2011. The rain outside makes me feel refreshed, fitting for the beginning of a new phase in life.

Ad: derivative of “add” but writer too stupid to include other “d.”

Hoc: derivative of “hockey” but writer too lazy bother finishing.

Hyphen: weird little dash that helps both reconcile differences (often mistaken for “minus”)

Alone they are misfits.

Together they are perfect.

Three pieces to a puzzle.

Ying and Yang are so overrated.

Ranting Turrets

(This is mine, so don't steal it!)

Happy Poem

This is a happy poem.
No crying allowed!
There’ll be no hippies, emos, or broken hearts. I’ll cast you out and then some!

It ain’t that hard to find something in your life that doesn’t suck.
You’re still breathing for one thing. That merits at least a smile.
Don’t forget your hygiene, and how you’re not wallowing in the muck.

I’m sorry if this announcement is filling you with guile.
But that doesn’t bother me. Now shut up and smile!

I’m sick of all your whining, how Fate is out for you.
Pouring your woes onto the ghost of a dead tree.
Half the crap you’re talking about probably isn’t true!

And don’t think of going on a music-listening spree.
Seriously, you’re the only reason their still playing on stage. 
Life’s a ride with ups and down. Tis quite fun! Wee!

So anyway, happy poem! Dance, sing and shout!
And find at least one thing to dance and sing about.

Happy Birthday, Ephraim!

Today marks the 1st anniversary of Lunar Dawn's publication! I can still remember coming into the dining room, seeing the package with my name on it. My heart pounding as I pried open the cardboard. Seeing the laminated cover and flipping through the pages. It was glorious! Six years ago, when I first started, I had never thought it would actually happen. It still seemed like nothing more than a dream, a project to keep me occupied. And now, MY work is listed on Amazon! Who'da thunk?

Alright, so what about the numbers? Well, I didn't exactly make the NY Times' bestseller list, but I made back every penny that I invested into the novel (and it was a very pretty penny indeed). In the meantime, I'll be getting ready to head back to school, writing what I can on the sequel when I have time.

Thanks to all of you who bought the novel and gave me feedback. Nothing helps a dream live like sharing it!

Now I'm off to get some cake...

Power to the pen and those who wield it! (om nom nom nom)

Party party party!!!

Yes, I have plans to continue the story. It will be concluded in the book's sequel, which I am working on now. I'm not sure how long it will take, but I'll update when I make any progress. Thank you for your wonderful comment.

So, this is 2010....*sticks hand in the air*

....feels about the same.

2009 was both good and bad to me and my family. I hope whoever is actually reading this blog (if anyone) had a merry Christmas and a wonderful beginning to the new year.

May the Lord bless everyone and your loved ones through and through.
