AUTHOR TIP!!! Plus the story of one who nearly lost her story...

Okay, great song to listen to and type with: I Have a Story by Epic Score. And seriously they mean EPIC. Shimmer used it for her second Seastars trailer, and I got it on iTunes.

So here's the story:

I hadn't been working on Outcasts as much, and was getting to be worried that I would quit it. And I didn't want to quit, I had already done so much for the series, and the characters! But if I didn't rekindle the spark that kept me writing, I would never get back to finishing Outcasts! *wail* I even was having trouble writing other books because it had been too long since I worked on them.

So, I got on the computer, put my iPod in, and started to type. AND IT WORKED! The combination of listening to I Have a Story, and praying, and motivation, worked! Now, I'm back with a raging fire inside me, ready to create a story of awesomeness.

And yeah, I'm listening to that other song Kings and Queens by 30 Seconds to Mars that was in Shimmer's first trailer...which is why I'm a bit pumped. Thanks Shimmer!!! I owe you a bunch!

Tamiki: Yeah, I mean seriously, what if I was stuck laughing (which was were he was at that point of the story)
Akov: And I would be stuck in a dungeon!
Inora: I would never exist! Wait, that's okay...*sarcastic* thanks...

:D

Anyhow, I made oatmeal cookies! That taste like....oatmeal...

I was playing music while writing yesterday! But it was Murray Perahia on the piano, not a song. :P

I quit a lot of my stories too early, and never give them enough time. One of my biggest flaws (And I have many >w<) in writing. I'm glad some of my favorite songs helped!! Glad to see you back on track!! :D
