Lots of Little Updates

Oh my gosh! I am alive! It’s a been a while. I’ve been rather busy over the last few weeks. I started a new job, and I’m still adjusting to that. I’ve been having a bit of a hard time with mustering up enough self-discipline to write much. I have been working on Solace. I just don’t have anything finished yet. I did redo strangeandbeautiful.org a few weeks ago, so check that out. The site is best viewed in Firefox. For some reason IE just didn’t want to cooperate with the layout. You can see some of the chapter stats posted over there.

Honestly, though, I can’t say how soon the next update for Solace will be. I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo this year. I really only put my foot down and decided a little over a week ago, but now I’m really excited about it and I’ve been doing a lot of planning. The story is called Absolution. It’s a dramatic thriller with a touch of mystery and a little horror, so as far as the genre goes, it’s really something different, but the biggest difference about this story has to be that I’m not doing a Hanfic this year. I’m a little nervous about it because I feel a bit rusty on the original fiction front, but I think it’s time. I will still post the story online if anyone is interested in reading it, so I’d really appreciate it if you’d drop me a comment in the guestbook and let me know!

Also, to Jen, I read your comment in the guestbook about reading Beautiful Disaster. I’m still in the process of editing and recoding the chapters, and I already know I won’t get that finished until after November, so in the meantime, I’ve posted all of the chapters in pdf format in case anyone else feels like reading it. You can find the link to the pdf here.

I’ve also got a new hostee! Heather from YouForAlways.net has moved all of her fiction over so that it wouldn’t be lost when her domain expires, so update your bookmarks! 🙂

And, last but not least, thank you to Amber, Gabby, Gotyou, Katie, Diana, Mare, Lauren, Rosie, Jessica, Jenna, Michelle G, and Jen for signing the guestbook. I’ve been so bad about updating lately, but I really appreciate everyone who’s hanging in there to read more of Solace as well as everyone else who has continued to sign the guestbook. Please remember to leave me about your comments about posting Absolution, and, hopefully, you’ll be hearing more from me soon!
