GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! I submitted Chapter 3 of Getting Over Edie on Friday. It should be up either tonight or tomorrow night. I am so excited to hear what you guys think.
I’m already working on Chapter Four, and I’m hoping that this vacation will force me to focus and hopefully have something out before the Christmas holiday. I’m super busy, but I’m working out a writing schedule that will help me stay on track.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I’m still gorging myself on turkey. Lord, I hope my cute pants still fit!
Here’s the link to the Getting Over Edie preview. Let me know what you think!
Not a question, just a statement. Loving this...and the Matthew Sweet song, I used to have that on repeat. Just the opening beat would make me feel all silly inside. And right now, I have Everything We Had by The Academy Is on repeat...
Thanks dear! Matthew Sweet is amazing, right up there with Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley for me. I’ll have to check out The Academy Is. I know of them, but haven’t really listened to a lot of their stuff. I’m currently in a weird music state. Blame it on the cold weather but I love slow, sad songs this time of year. It’s been a week filled with Portishead, Beach House, and the like. Currently Death Cab for Cutie’s “The Ice is Getting Thinner” is dominating my headphones. It’s definitely helping with the writing process.
And after listening to Everything We Had, I can definitely see why you’re listening to it like crazy. I see so much of your story in this song. :)
“We’re not the same dear as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.”—Death Cab For Cutie “The Ice Is Getting Thinner”
Sorry about the length of time between posts. I was pretty much set to post Chapter 3 when I decided to do some re-writes. There were certain parts that really weren’t fitting well and messed with the flow of the story, certain scenes I wanted to expand. Before I could really get started on correcting stuff I came down with some sort of disease resembling the bubonic plague.
Despite my hacking, and completely unattractive cough I’m still working on making this chapter absolutely perfect. This weekend has been a little hectic, what with the Halloween holiday and working EVERY DAY for the past two weeks. I am wiped out, let me tell you. But nevertheless you will definitely see new stuff from me quite soon.
And I’m a little excited because I’ve decided to bring back Giving Up The Ghost. It was tough to let it die but those characters wouldn’t give up without a fight. The story is essentially my story; it’s pretty much what I’m going through with a certain strapping fellow. I guess it hit too close to home after a while and I couldn’t write any more. But now I’m itching to jump back into that plot. It’s not going to be up for a while; I really want to focus all my energy into Getting Over Edie.
Again, thanks for being the most amazingly patient fans!
