I am taping my mouth shut forever

I am completely mortified!

Just called my cousin on the phone fully expecting to get his voicemail because he's at work. I was going to leave a very simple message: How've you been doing? Thinking about flying out and visiting sometime, what's your schedule like?

Only problem was, he picked up. In typical Me fashion, I panicked and made an ass of myself by using short, confusing, incoherent sentences. I know he thinks he's related to a complete idiot now... and that there's some sort of catastrophe I'm trying to deal with.

And I'm pretty sure he thinks my parents are plotting to get rid of me in some evil way.

Oh I fail at speaking.

New Rule

No reading blogs, surfing the internet, checking AW's forum, and all similar procrastination techniques until after I've done some writing.

Can I make it through an entire week?

Heh. Just remembered: I haven't written yet today. Day 1, and I've already broken the rule. oops.

YA story hatching

Beautiful, huge, fluffy snowflakes were falling silently from the sky when I walked out the door this morning. The kid in me was full of wonder and excitement at the sight.

The adult in me cursed a boatload of inappropriateness - traffic was going to be a beach. <-- no, that's not a typo. :)

Started toying with a story idea with major YA tendencies. First person POV. High school setting. Love triangle. This'll be a no pressure, just-have-fun-and-write sort of deal (I refuse to stress. I refuse!). I've already scribbled a few pages of stuff down in my excitement.

Look at me, flexing my meager writing muscles! Garr!!

I keep vacillating between creating a Twitter account or just leaving it be. Due to the insane amount of caffeine I've just imbibed, I'm definitely leaning towards opening one. Should I? Should I not? Indecision, you plague me!

Who's on Twitter? Who's not? Why?

Edit: 10 hours later and I've finally decided to set one up. user name is AnvilsFalling. Be my friend!

Happy Valentines Day to all you love birds out there!

In an effort to track the books that I've read (and to encourage myself to read at least 2 books a month), I've joined Goodreads. If you're on the site, be my friend! Updating my book shelf is such a great way to procrastinate! It also makes me realize how little I read. For shame!

On the writing front, I'm pushing myself to just do it. I officially have 3 paragraphs of my first draft down. Go me! :)

Middle of the night and I've got a pounding headache. Falling asleep is not happening.

Time seems to move infinitely slow and lighting quick all at the same time. It's the middle of February already. How did that happen?
