Wow . . . . . . Two Months!

It's been two months since my last post. I didn't mean for it to be that long. I've been busy and dealing with personal issues and with all that I just haven't had time to update this blog.

Well, I'll talk about my book a bit. I've currently written over 200 pages so I am more than half way done! I am proud of myself and I'm excited about being able to finish it soon. Once I finish I will starting on my next book. I just can't wait to get them finished and starting on the road to publishing.

My boyfriend is still searching for a job and is putting in more applications. Some of the places around here are hiring now and I'm hoping one of those places will hire him.

I've still been reading a lot, I'm close getting to having read 100 books this year. Currently I am reading Guardians of Ga'Hoole: The Journey by Kathryn Lasky. I saw the movie and it was wonderful, definitely going to buy it on DVD when it comes out.
An author on Goodreads has asked me to review her book series and I accepted. She has sent the books already and I'm waiting for them to come in the mail. I was surprised she asked, but happy she did and after she asked me, I got an idea - What if I became a book reviewer? I'm exactly expecting to become a famous book reviewer, I want to be a famous author though. But, I've been thinking about trying to review books for money. I was doing some reading and saw that you can sell book reviews to magazine for money and I think that would be great for me. The money from selling book reviews would be great, but also I do like reviewing books and it would give me some experience in the writing world. I figured I will do some more research and find magazines that take reviews of young adult, or children's books since that is mostly what I read. I really hope I can do this.
But, of course, I'm going to still keep working on my writing and my books. My books are probably one of the most important things to me. I really can't wait to get them finished and get published. I know my books will sell very good.

And some good news I found out . . . . . Diana Wynne Jones wasn't feeling so well earlier this year, but now she is doing much better and that makes me very happy. I think I'm going to buy another card and send it to her. I hope she liked the first card I sent.

Anyway, I'm glad I had the time to update this and change my layout. It's now October, my favorite month and my favorite holiday is at the end of this month - Halloween! I love Halloween and decided to change my layout to a Halloween one. Well, I guess that is it for the update. I'll do my best to update more this month.
