This is a life update.
Just thought I'd forewarn you.
I hope you don't mind some old, random pictures of trees and stuff.
I've been throwing Sherlock quotes at everyone recently. I really need a Sherlock marathon. Soon too, before I drive everyone crazy. Though, half the time they don't even know what I'm talking about.

Recipe for Heaven on Earth
1. Melt semisweet chocolate chips.
2. Mix salted peanuts into melted chocolate.
3. Let dry, then eat. Or just consume it gooey.
My library does not have the fourth Ranger's Apprentice book. *wails* What am I to do!?
But I am reading Graceling by Kristin Cashmore. Have you read it? What did you think?
Oh, and I finally finished the second season of Once Upon a Time. Now I must have the third. Most of my family loves this series. Have you seen it?
I just bought the album Cathedrals by Tenth Avenue North. This was the first song.
I have a really hard time remembering this. I'm very much a loner and will honestly not talk to anyone about anything. But the other day, my best friend came over and when she said, "What are you thinking?" I could tell her for truth exactly what was going through my mind at that exact moment. People, I don't do that with just anyone. It was so nice for a change!
Blogposts you should check out
Aimee's guest post on Writer and Proud. She talks about why characters need motivation. I needed this post.
Annika's post on love triangles, the different kinds, ways to break the cliche, etc. You must all read this! Yes, I'm pointing at you.
Carmel's post about Truth and writing. I love how pithy and beautiful her posts are. They really hit home.
I don't wear make-up often. In part, because I don't care. I have better things to do with my life. . . like write, and read, and watch Once Upon a Time. *cough* VERY important, that latter one. When I do actually wear make-up, I always get compliments on my hair. Yep. My hair. Why? I have no idea.
(In case for some absurd reason you wondered, no. I do not put the make-up on my hair.)
I've been having a time of it with the Oddball Sequel. You see, I'm at the part where things aren't so bad for the characters. They actually get a chance to get to know each other and- dare I say- get along.
It's seems writing pleasant things, doesn't suit me. I don't know where to go with it. The conversations, the what-is-supposed-to-happen, the feel-goody parts. I know where I want to go with it, it's just the getting there has me stuck.
I'm going away for a week or so with my family. So I won't be around much.
What have you all been up to? What are you reading? Have you read Graceling? Or seen Once Upon a Time?
