The Killers – Andy, You're A Star

3 days. Wow. It’s kind of like the old days, huh? Old days = 2002 circa. Anyway, I’ve been working hard on writing. I love it when I don’t have to fight with myself to write and it just comes naturally, which is what seems to be going on with me lately.

Saturday I reworked my outline for Distorted Blessings, and as of now there will be 45 chapters + Epilogue. Originally, there were 50 chapters. I didn’t cut out anything though. I just combined some of the chapters, and I actually added some stuff, so don’t worry, you’re still getting the whole stuff. And at the rate I’m going, I think I’ll be able to meet my mid-October goal of finishing Distorted Blessings.

Anyway, I’ve posted Chapter 32 of Distorted Blessings. It’s on the rather sad and depressing side. It wasn’t a whole lot of fun to write. 😦 But I wrote it all in one day, which for me is quite the accomplishment. I like weekends when I don’t have anything to do. I have the freedom to just write, which was what I did all day yesterday.

Also, I want to point out somethings I added to the menu bar. I added links to the stories I’m currently working on, which at the moment only amounts to two stories – Disillusioned and Distorted Blessings. Disillusioned will be finished soon. It’s my job to write the Epilogue, and I suck and haven’t worked on it yet, which I’m sure is driving Taye insane. Also there’s the NaNoWriMo thing. I’ve decided to try something new this time and let you guys give me some challenges for the story, so go check that out! Give me some good challenges. 🙂

Anyway, I’m going to close with saying thanks to everyone who signed the guestbook. I got an amazing amount of feedback on the last chapter, and I really appreciate it. It makes me feel like I’m doing a good job – even if you don’t like how the chapters turn out. 😉 So again, thanks to those who signed the guestbook, and also to Becca and Nikki. Becca is gracious enough to not only read the chapters once but twice when I need someone to edit for me. And Nikki is always kind enough to give me her honest opinion when I’m feeling a little uncertain. I just wanted to throw my appreciation out there in case I don’t say it enough!

Anyway, let me know what you think of Chapter 32! I’m going to try to start 33 tonight! *crosses fingers*
