What the heck... we doing this or not!

Alright. I'm working hard, but you know it's hard work! I love writing... the best is getting to know who you are writing about. I've got 5 profiles working for a new series. Lots of new concepts and things going with that.
Emerald is on a fast track right now... I'm almost done! Well, with the rough draft.

Some personal stuff...
I've been doing a diet with some of the girls online that I talk to... I don't know how much I've lost b/c well, I don't like scales, but I'm doing good. I'm feeling better, I don't have more energy yet, but I'm not sleeping better either. I started useing my machine again everynight... it's still hard to go to sleep with out the pills, but I'm getting better.

Ya know what!

Nothing! It's a quite day. We have the windows/doors open because it's so nice, it's rare to do this in Texas. All the kids are being great today, I didn't sleep so that helps. I've started charecter building for my new book.
I'm trying something new. I'm letting friends of mine be the chareters... not straight out. I'll have input on who they are and stuff...but they will have input on looks, attitude and back grounds. I'm even going to let them help with the males too. I'm taking my direction a little diffrent this time. I think it's something new and it might be more fun for both me and any readers.
Speaking of readers, I have several people reading Sapphire right now. I've already gotten a couple of things back from them.!! I hear good things, and some ok things. I even had someone be honest and tell me they didn't like how it started! I'm working on that now. (we talked about it and are trying a new start and so far so good)
Well, I'm off to make lunch for kids and do more work. I'll be around...

So, let's get this thing moving!

Alright. It's the start of a new month, week and life!
It's also the start of a new book! That's right... I am done doing reaserch for a new book idea that I have not told you about at all. Why? Because I liked it so much I didn't want to let anyone know about. I still have one person to talk to before I put hands to keys, but I think she will like it and I HOPE that she will help me on it.
It's a totaly new idea for me, well, kinda... yes it has vampires in it... but I've had this idea blooming for the last couple months and I have been digging into my own past and with everything that's happening I figured why not add it to the mix too.
Other things that are happening are that I'm working on Emerald again! I wrote about 1000 words last night, not much, but heck, Christian's off the plane so we are good now! I'm taking this a new direction and going to have to change something that happened early on to make it work, but I'm ok with it for this second, it's only a rough draft.

I am working VERY hard on my tag line for my Querry letter! I think I got it... tell me what you think
When Isabella Kinsley gets on with her life after her accident she finds that her dreams can come ture in the form of Aiden O'Quinn. Now she just needs to make her choice of path in life, to bad they all lead to blood.
So what do you think? It would be the first thing a agent would read in my querry letter... I am also working on a synopsis.. this is my weak point... I can't sum anything up... no long stories made short for me... they are all long! I'm trying! So if you have read my manuscript (there are are few of you who have) give me your ideas of a over all cation of the book?!
I'm off, lunch time for the kiddos and I might eat something too... more then coffee!
