Another Fic Under my belt

Posted in Uncategorized on January 30, 2009 by teamjalice1863

Oh god. I have finished yet another fic. “Lost and Found” is complete! Well, the initial draft. My beta, who I will be really really missing after this, is editing it this weekend, and spicing it up, probably, but the draft is finished. I am SO excited!

Now I am free to focus on my lighter fare, until the middle of “Eyes on Fire”, but I’m not giving away any spoilers. ^^ you’ll have to read it!

anyway, now I can focus, also, on my contest piece that’s due next Wednesday.

Back to the Grind

I had a great two days of working on my novel. I got a lot of material written! And some great things are planned for the coming scenes and chapters. However, now it’s time to get back to Fan fiction. If I keep going on the current path I’m on, I’ll be able to finish Lost and Found at either Ch. 6 or Chapter 7. I am thinking it’s more likely that I will finish with a short Ch. 7. If nothing else, I can at least wrap it up. There is a sequel in the works that will chronicle Jasper and Alice’s journey to Carlisle Cullen and his coven. Haven’t worked out the details there yet. The goal with Lost and Found was just for him to meet Alice. I think I have chronicled that well, for what I had to work with.

The other two fics, What the Heart Wants, and Eyes on Fire are both garnering amazing reviews for the little they’re getting. I begin work on both of those tomorrow, before I go to Pat’s. Today, I have to work on Ch. 6. of Lost and Found. Thankfully, I have already started it. It’s usually the starting of Lost and Found that throws me.

Just wanted to let everyone know what was going on. See y’all around.

Scared Shitless…but plugging on

Posted in Original Fiction, Strauss Vampire Novel on January 27, 2009 by teamjalice1863

Okay. So, I am hitting a bump. I’m terrified. I’m terrified I’ll get published, and nothing will sell. I’m terrified that no publishers will want to read the story I’ve crafted about my Strausses and Luke and his family.

It almost made me want to quit. Something stopped me. My Twilight poster. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me, and my new friends, had Stephenie Meyer decided Twilight was too big a project or undertaking for her. I would’ve never found Jasper, and I would never in a million years be thinking about even publishing a book that didn’t heavily rely on werewolves and vampires fighting.

So now, I am still scared shitless, but I plan to keep working on it, and making my dream a reality. Some way or another, I will get a book published, even if I have to do it myself.

Thank you, Twilight, for being the reminder I needed.

Rough Night led to a Nightmare

So, I thought I had everything settled in my mind last night when I went to bed. That’s why I turned on Disney for an hour beforehand. Disney’s usually good to me that way. Well, apparently not so.

Last night’s drama:

-One of my friends was having a hard time with a friend of hers. Well, a few friends, to be more precise, so she was upset.

-Her boyfriend, who is also a close friend of mine is having issues at home. For his privacy, I won’t list them, so HE wasn’t in a good mood either.

-My beta reader, who I consider to be a little sister to me, as well as a good friend, had some shit happen with HER parents. Which led to her letting me know that she wouldn’t be able to help me with the sequel to “Lost and Found”. I’m not mad at her, but I am very very sad, and distressed over the fact that I had to find a new beta reader for the continuing story. She did tell me if I ever had any one-shots I wanted her to look over that she would be willing to do that. So if I ever have the mind to write a one-shot for the Twilight fandom, I’ll gladly ask her.

So last night was really not a good night for anyone. I am really worried about friend number one though. I wish there was something I could do to help her. But she claims there isn’t. I guess I just need to keep my fingers crossed.

Last night’s drama led to a really … weird nightmare. I don’t want to go into detail. This is one dream I really don’t want to get into. However, per my rules, I wrote it down in my dream journal. I am anxiously awaiting word about the director for Eclipse. I still think I might’ve had precog dream about that a couple months ago. Anyway, I’l talk to everyone later.

Team Clearwater in my Dream!!

So, I don’t remember al lthe sdetails, but Seth and Leah Clearwater both werei n my dream last night. We were all on First Beach and kinda just hanging out. Kind cool, right? Well, Sam showed up. Grr!! He was having an argument with about Jacob. Don’t ask the reason. Don’t remember. But it’s just like him to ruin a perfectly good moment with my Clearwaters!!

Scratch that last post!

I’m doing great. My friends at Zero Virus really put things into perspective for me. I need to stop stressing about writing. When it gets to that point, it’s not worth it anymore! Anyway. I’m doing fine now. I hope I didnt’ wrory anyone that saw that….
