Snow, snow and more SNOW!

Well, I haven't been here though I have no excuse. Moving on...

I am totally addicted to hidden object games. I just had to put that out there. Something about finding all the hidden things and especially when they are mixed with adventure games. LOVE! And now I get to help write one!!!! Woot! It will hopefully be coming out through Orchid Games. I highly recommend going over to orchidgames.com and picking up one of their solitaire games. THEY ROCK! But be prepared to get sucked in and do nothing else. I'm just warning you...

On the writing front, there isn't much right now other than I am writing every day, even when I don't really want to. Which is good for me. Grows character!

Ta for now! Off to more writing where I wrangle my muse and hog tie him while I type out my five pages.

Back from the Be-ach!

Okay, so I went to the beach in Delaware because one of my awesome friends bought a beach house and let us take a test run. I am in love and can't wait to go back. I do not have a cool time line break down of what I was doing there like Natalie. Nor do I have a rambling one like Vicki Smith (or Wiki Smit if you have listened to our impromptu ridiculousness on Megan's Twitter or Facebook about microwaves). I do not have a thorough one like Vicky Burkholder either. But that doesn't mean I didn't have a blast :)

It was wonderful and so very relaxing. Lots of writing done. Since I am trying something new I decided in my normal all or nothing fashion to try it completely new and took out my tablet and chisel. Just kidding, but I am writing this book long hand which on the one hand is like OMG it's going to take FOREVER and I can type much faster, and on the other hand it is very freeing and has forced me to think a little bit more before moving on to the next word or phrase. If I had a third hand, I would say it was fun (and I'd be a favorite at stag parties!).

I wrote about 55 hand written pages in a cool composition notebook like the ones I used to use in elementary school for english stuff - generously donated by Wiki Smit since it was the one fricking tool I did not bring. I had my laptop and AlphaSmart and yet still wrote it out long hand. But it's working. And honestly that's all that matters to me :)

I will say that it snowed between 7 and 10 inches while we were there. Seriously! Snowing on the beach. It was awesome. The whole thing was.
