My reply: "A teenager is never late. Nor is she... oh... hehe... he...erm..." *flees*
I am sorry for my long absence. It seems I not only underestimated college classes, but I also overestimated my resolve to post more often. The last semester was insane. But you do not want to hear my excuses! Please accept my apology, and rest assured that I will do better. I think I've got this college thing figured out.
Oh! Speaking of college! I was accepted into my first choice of college- NC State! I am incredibly excited about starting in August. I've been wearing lots of red and black recently.
As far as my writing goes, I entered my Beauty and the Beast short story into Rooglewood's contest. I'm pretty nervous. I do wish mine would be selected, but if it is not, I'm sure the Five Enchanted Roses collection will be amazing. I can't wait for it to come out!
Hail Frost is now my primary focus. I feel like I owe all of you an in-depth update, so here it is!
I wrote Hail Frost two and a half years ago, when I was fifteen. At that point, I had intended the Leverage Series to be a seven book series. Since then I have now realized that is a terrible idea. Not only would it be wrong for the story, but it also would be wrong with me. I have many, many different story ideas, and I don't want to write seven Leverage books. I cut it down from a seven book series to a trilogy. I completely changed nearly everything about the story after Ember Flame, creating the need to completely rewrite both Hail Frost and what was formerly called Flake Frost (It now has a new name).
The story is much better now. Much more concise, much more exciting, and far more interesting. I am excited to share it with all of you, but that is the reason it was not published in 2014 as I had truly hoped it would be. Now, I'm hoping for May-July 2015.
On a more fun note, I went to see Disney's 'Into the Woods' today. It was completely excellent! I loved it! I intend to write a review on it soon.
I am considering going to see Annie. I'm not sure yet. Many reviewers did not like it, but I suspect many of them to be fans of the original Annie. Personally, I never liked any of the other Annie movies, and the trailers for the new one caught my attention, especially this portrayal of Annie. She seems so much more real and so much less obnoxious. I don't know. I will see it, but I don't know if I will see it in theaters or not.
I will not be seeing The Hobbit 3 in theaters. I will make myself watch it though, once it comes out. After all, I can't write a review unless I see it. >:)
Ahem. My angst aside, I have some pretty fun blog posts coming up! Oh, and I am also starting this new deal where I tell you what my next blog post is going to be AND when it will be coming out. Accountability, eh?
On Friday I will share an interview I conducted with my two sisters in which we discussed the different aspects of the Harry Potter series. There will be spoilers because Pippin (10) has lots of opinions. That trait totally does not run in my family. And I totally did not get that gene. Cough.
Anyway, I am very happy to be back! Next time I disappear, feel free to yell at me. I'l crawl back from whatever cave of textbooks I have hidden myself inside and post! Thanks for reading. I love y'all! *hugs*
