Hilo. (Um, is that a real word? Probably nots. Oh well.) I really should be working on my query or something like that, seeing as how I've officially decided to stop working on the novel I was going to be working on. I just decided... not now. It's too... well, too something, I'm not even really sure what. But it's one of those ideas up in my head just waiting to be written. (Along with these other fantabulous stories, Daniel, Again; Mr. Wrong; Friendgirl; The Year of Ben; Girl #2; Ducky; Coffee Days; Past Perfect; The Bride... and more! No, but seriously, I've got like a zillions of these up there in my head. And they all have titles... I'll just probably end up changing the title like a million times, if I even manage to write it at all.) Point is, I figured I may as well work on the querying process while I'm still in the Ash Creek gear, you know?
Besides that, I actually don't know which story I'll end up working on next. I'd like to work on Coffee Days, but it's in verse and I really want to write regular prose right now. (Although I did write a novel in verse once. Yeah, it has like 30k words or something sad and small like that.) So I'm thinking maybe either Daniel, Again just because the idea for that one has been brewing for pretty much ever (at least since May of this year).
I have all these old starts of stories on my computer. Stories and poems and when I read them I think, oh! I should really finish that! but then I never do because it's a big task to take on. I think from this whole Ash Creek experience I've learned that I really just have to stick my nose to the grindstone and not let myself give up on a story in order to finish. Because there's always new ideas, always stories I want to work on, etc. So now I just have to find one, decide which story to write and then STICK TO IT!
In other news, I think the Get Smart dvds might be coming in stores during 2008. So yay! (Now if only I had a job to pay for them... hmm...). Oh, and click here to see a clip from Get Smart. Hee hee. Me loves this show.
