They want more?

I'm sitting here trying not to fall asleep while I continue to write chapters five and six of "Behind the Naugahyde". Well obviously I'm not currently writing it because I'm writing in this blog. Anyway, I was attempting to write it but drowsiness caused me to stop. That's when I decided that I really don't write in my blog enough. After all I do want to be a writer so perhaps I should write more. I get really annoyed when I go to J.K. Rowling's website and she hasn't posted anything new about book 7. I can't help but dream that perhaps my two fans(more like the two people who feel obligated to read this because no one else does, rather than fans) are sitting at home angry at me for not posting more often.
Besides posting more often will get me more next blog hits which could lead to the third person that feels obligated to read this because no one else does! Speaking of next blog hits, I went through and edited some typos in a few past entries. Every time I fixed an entry I republished the blog which caused me to get a spree of next blog hits.

I got a chance to read the transcripts of John Irving, Stephen King and J.K. Rowling's Radio City Music Hall events. They answered questions from the audience and I was happy that they weren't all for J.K. Rowling. There were a lot of questions about how they write and get their ideas. It was quite interesting, at least for me.

As far as writing goes, I'm still working on chapters 5 and 6. Jenni is moving and getting a new job so she doesn't have a ton of time to get her part done either. Once we get done with the chapters and edits we're going to have some people read it and answer some questions.

Currently listening to: "The Road I'm On"-Three Doors Down
Just watched: Edward Scissor Hands
Currently Reading: 52 #14, Ultimate Spider-man #08 and Outsiders #39

I'm totally a fan!

Also, I saw you put chapter 6 and I freaked out thinking I was forgetting to do something until I realized that you meant the first scene. Phew! Scared myself for a minute there!

Me, too!

I see blogging as a sort of global conversation. The more people I can hear from, and the more voices I learn to recognize, the better off and more connected I am. As with all of my blog-friends, I like reading your stuff! I like hearing from you!

I also find it totally cool when I meet women online who are into things like science fiction and comic books. It gives me a vague feeling of hope. You should check out my latest link, to Deanna Hoak's site. And she has some interesting friends, too!
