65. Picking up new reads

Friday, June 10, 2005

Today was a busy day. Ending up running around town. I went shoe shopping, book shopping and picked up a few other things as well. One of my purchases was a copy of Stephen King's On Writing. I'd heard so many wonderful things about this book in the past. I finally picked up my own copy, and I'll be working on reading that soon. I also picked up a book by one of authors I read the blog of regularly. That of Jill Shavis. I picked up a copy of The Street Where She Lives. I'm looking forward to read it once I finish White Oleander.

Right now, I'm focusing on my story, Crash into me. I'm finally resigned to the fact it won't make it within 2,500 words. So I'm shooting 4,000 to 5,000 words. I think that might be more doable. I'll see what happens as I continue to work on it. when I sit down to write, the words to seem to flow easily to me. I can usually get out about two pages a night. Slow, but steady, and that is the important thing.

On the cold front, seems it was a 24 hour bug. I'm feeling much better today. I just might take it easy and go to bed at a semi decent time tonight. We'll see if I can manage that. Early to me is 2am. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday.

I love the title - it's one of my favorite songs by Dave Matthews.

Continue to feel better so you can fully enjoy the weekend.

Thank you. I love the song as well. It's a working title right now, but I'm hoping it sticks. Never know there might be a problem because of the song.

I have that Stephen King book. I think you'll enjoy it. Very inspiring.

Crash Into Me. What a great title. Good luck with the story, Gina, and have a great weekend!

Great title! Good luck with the writing. I envy you for being able to write shorts. I've never actually tried, but as long-winded as I tend to be, I doubt I could do it.

I've read The Street Where She Lives and enjoyed it very much!

Gina said...

I began reading it last night, Beth, and it is! I'm enjoying the read.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments on the title. I'll either go with that or "Forces of nature." I'll decide once the story is complete.
