Rural Utah...

It is official! We close on a house in Castle Dale UT on the 31 of OCT. I'm getting a bit nervous, I have never lived anywhere so rural or far away from Salt Lake. It is so rural that there are no mail men, you have to have a Post Office box to get your mail.

I keep moving to smaller and smaller places... SLC, Logan, Provo, (I know that Provo is bigger than Logan but I'm listing them in order) Tooele and now Castle Dale. If we move again we will live in a place with 300 people in the entire town! I like cities. I like shoping malls. I dont like small towns. Sigh, I might get alot of writing done since there will be no place to go.

Noble in full color...

I am a fan of graphic novels. I like anime artwork. I like that form of reading. It is a nice break from the text heavy reading that can strain my eyes and like I said I like art too. I have a number of Elfquest graphic novels that I cherish because you cant get them anymore in that format.

I was looking at my Childrens Book of the Month Club catalogue and saw that one of my favorite YA books has been made into a graphic novel. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. It is a rioutous romp of a book and a thoroughly enjoyable read, and now it is fully illustrated.

I was intrigued. I had read that Twilight was going to be made into a movie, and it made me think, Dominion Day on Film. Yes I could see my Noble on the big screen, AKA Kiefer Sutherland w/long blonde hair. (Oh be still my beating heart.) But a graphic novel? I hadn't thought about it, but now the thought is very apealing. I wonder if it is picked up by a publisher if I could negotiate a graphic novel out of it with real Japanese anime artists. HMMMMMMM it is worth a try ehe?

So...some of you have heard of my shower...

You know the one where Noble and the rest of my MALE main characters live. Well I was showering Monday morning when Shina appeared in my shower. Shina is Nobles' small shoulder dragon. She is about 5 ft. long muzzle to tail, and has a wing span of about 3-4 ft. I showered as I watched Shina play in the water and clean herself. Needless to say I was basically kicked out when Shina was joined by her mate. I was done anyway, but man sometimes I think that my characters have taken over....

Okay my final word count....

I joined the BIAM club and I knew it would be a bad time, (moving selling house...) but do I regret it? No way! I got some awesome writing done because I was challenged.

I ended on the 9 of Oct. with 19,510 words. More than 15 chapters and 70 pages of some good writing. The story had fleshed out nicely. Now I'll be the first to admit that I hit a wall and I'm stuck but it is okay. It'll come to me. I was scares to do it at first but I'll do it again and hopefully I'll have more to write on Dacias' story while he waits impatiently in my head. Thanks Tristi I found that yes I can work under pressure.

Long time no post....

We are in the process of moving. I am a very busy mom and wife right now. So please have patience with me for a few weeks and then I'll be back on again. I'll try to post sooner than that but I cant guarantee it.
