Tree Dreaming

(no subject)

xlormp is less than ten people away from having 500 friends.

It has jumped from 37 to 500 in a little over one day. I have about thirty marriage proposals. And aside from a few snide comments on the original spotlight post, everyone is being so dang nice. I swear, a few of these comments have brought tears to my eyes.

I almost feel like it's not really fair, I mean, the only reason this is more popular than anything else I've written is because it's a spoof of something else that's popular. I also sort of feel Stephenie Meyer-ish..."THE WHOLE THING ONLY TOOK TWO MONTHS YOU KNOW, OH, HOW HARD THE WAITING WAS." I'm glad people are enjoying it, and I'm excited about having a built in platform to hopefully pimp some of my non-Twilight related writing, but it's sort of...overwhelming? All at once? (edit: I'm not fishing for "No, really, you deserve it!" here, just posting some of the thoughts going through my head.)

I wrote the end of the book last night, everything except the Epilogue (which I'll write today). I really, really hope the ending lives up to the sudden 500 readers-worth of expectations I've got to live up to! But at least it's written and out of the way. There is one more twist on the way that I don't think anyone will see coming...I hope...maybe...(of course saying that just means someone will guess it and I will go, "BAH I AM NOT REALLY THAT CLEVER, THAT'S OKAY THOUGH, I'LL KEEP ON KEEPING ON").

Craziness. That's what this is. Craziness.

Okay, so I was starting to wonder if it would be worth driving all the way out to Plano to see the Bella Cullen Project when the finally have another show in October. Then I started listening to their cd again today, and yes, yes it is. I forgot how much I actually like the music. IT SERIOUSLY MAKES ME WISH THE BOOKS WERE GOOD.
