Brace Yourself

As Howie Day sang, brace yourself! I come bearing a real update. *listens to the collective gasps* I know, it’s about time, right? But I am so happy to finally say that Chapter Four of Solace has been posted. In my last update I said I had about 8 pages finished. It took me a few days, but once I got into it and started writing I managed to write another 12 pages and finish off the chapter pretty quickly. I think I just needed to get back into the right frame of mind for writing Silly, and now that I’m there, hopefully, the next few chapters will come easily. I’m really excited about them, actually. I think I have the next several chapters pretty well figured out, so I shouldn’t find myself stuck like I was with this one.

I also added a new theme – Forever Young. If it doesn’t come up as the default, just click on the link in the sidebar to view it! I also updated the awards section because, surprisingly, I picked up a few awards at The Oscars: Hanson Style. I really wasn’t expecting that, so thank you so much to everyone who voted for me and my stories! I really appreciate it! 🙂

Also, thank you to Helen for taking the time to sign the guestbook. Thank you for your forgiveness in my lack of updates, and it makes me happy to find another Twilight lover. I’m extremely excited about the movie, and I’ve been super fangirlish after reading the first 12 chapters of Midnight Sun, despite my disappointment about it currently being on hold. 😦

And, of course, thank you to Becca and Mel for taking the time to beta this chapter for me. I hope, assuming anyone still comes here and is still reading it, that you enjoy the new chapter of Solace. I’d really appreciate some feedback on the chapter. It really helps a lot to hear what people are thinking as far as motivation to write goes. I’m hoping to start Chapter Five later today – after I’ve got some sleep. Enjoy!
