Tree Dreaming

Books!

So there's going to be a story update today, I promise, because I'm working on it right now. I plan to write for another hour and then I have to head up to Tom Thumb. (Because I have a job there, you see. I AM A WORKING WOMAN NOW.) But in the mean time, I keep forgetting to update my Books Read This Year list, so here goes with that:

Book 22/30 - Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan

Book 23/30 - The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan

I really want to read everything this man has ever written, but they're in short supply on paperback swap. They're all on my wishlist, though! Anyway, I liked Boy Meets Boy the best. David Levithan has a way of writing about falling in love that makes you feel like you're right there. He describes it so perfectly, yet succinctly. I'm jealous of his skillz. WANT MOAR.

I'm almost done with Let it Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green and Lauren Myracle, which I borrowed from auracel when I was visiting. So far it's awesome. There's three different Christmas romance stories by three different authors, but they all take place in the same town and they're all linked loosely to each other. Since I'm a sucker for things like that, I'm really digging it!

Okay, enough talk of books. Back to writing.

More story, as promised!

Okay, I hope to be done with this story by the end of the week. That is my GOAL. I'm less than 8K away from done, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Do you know what it's like to have something stuck in your head, and not be able to think about anything else? When you can't focus on anything put in front of you, be it school work, food, even something you'd normally enjoy, like hanging out with friends? I've done this with all sorts of things. Like with a book I'm reading, where I just want to know what's going to happen next but I have to put it away because home room is over and it's time to go to math. I've done it with TV shows that leave you hanging right at the end, and you have to wait a week to see what happens next. I've done it with computer games, where I'll be playing them and then I have to turn them off, go to bed, and wait until the next day to continue my adventure. Hell, I've even done it with cake, cake so amazingly fantastically delicious that all I wanted more than anything else in the world was to have another piece.

But it's never been as bad as it was waiting to find out if Bret had talked to Alec or not.
