Scolded

So, I have been scolded by my friend about how often I update my blog - which isn't very often, I know (although, as far as I can tell, said friend doesn't update her blog very often either, so she is just being a hypocrite lol). Anyway, she is right though - I haven't been updating. I have actually opened to this new post page every day for the last week and then not been able to think of anything blog-worthy and so I just navigated away, sans new post. I guess I just think that my blog should be somewhat interesting so that my readers (all four of them) aren't too bored with it. Although, they might be more bored with no post than a boring new post, I am not really sure. Either way ... I am kinda getting off track here from what I was saying. My point is that she is right, and I know it, so I am going to make an effort to post more - boring post be damned!

So, I have to go to this x-ray class for the next three days instead of work and I am not really looking forward to it. It will be good to have the certification but it will not be fun to sit through the class (I don't think anyway, I could be surprised). And to top it all off, it is all the way out in Clackamas - which is like an hour from here. And it is at 8 in the morning, so I have to fight rush hour traffic. This is really going to suck. Esp since I live about 7 minutes from my job, so I when I have to fight rush hour traffic all it does is make my trip 15 minutes instead of 7, so not really a big deal.

And the worst part is that I can't even like read a book or anything fun like that while I am traveling. I guess I could get a book on cd, but I have issues with those unless you are taking a really long drive, 'cause I don't like to have to try to find a good place to stop and then sometimes if I can't hear it over car noises, and then if I don't pay attention for a bit I get confused. Anyway, in my opinion it isn't a long enough drive for a book on cd. Good think I like driving.

Also, I did end up finishing the ending of my novel. So now I have a completed first draft. It isn't long, but as I was reading through it I noticed lots of places I need to add things in and change things around and all that fun stuff, so I have quite the editing journey ahead of me, but at least I have the entire thing finished. That is quite the accomplishment I think. The last part that I wrote ended up being about 4000 words ... but I was getting kinda tired at the end there so I may need to add some stuff to it once I flesh out other parts and make it more comprehensible. So, after I get time to work on editing (I think that will be after I finish reading Harry Potter - I am on book 5) I will be looking for a few good editors. I already have a few people in mind ... but I will probably want anyone who is willing to read it. So yeah ... if you like fantasy let me know. :)

ooh ooh pick me pick me! I'll read your novel! I'm reading bits and pieces of Laura's right now and it's great. The reading and the story itself. I was just thinking I should email you and get you to send me your stuff :) So, yeah. Whenever you're ready send it on down. Though I make no guarantees on how quickly I'll be able to get to it...stupid school.

oh. and thanks for updating your blog :). I'm going to go and update mine right now so there!
