My thoughts about life
This is my first blog entry. I decided to try entering my thoughts on an online journal. I guess my first entry should be on how I reached this decision. I saw in the latest (well a couple of weeks ago) contests letter a piece about blogging. I checked out the blogs portion of the site and I was impressed. So many people sharing the intimate details of their lifes. I want to do my part.

This may not be the best blog entry, I know. But, I want to learn how to express myself better. I also want more people to get to know me on the site.

Today I plan on watching college football and reading during the commercials with the mute button on :). I may check some more of my e-mails and read some more online stories and try and comment on them. I try reviewing everything i read. I admit sometimes I read something and dont review it. Other times I am afraid I write a pretty crappy review. But noone has commented so far.

Well I will go for now.

Well this is the umpteenth notice to update my blog. They can be pretty persistant about this. :)

Why do I write this? It seems nobody is reading it. Maybe because I like writing. I like putting my thoughts down for the world to see. I don't do this for the recognition, even though that is nice. I do it to express something of myself.

Anyway, I didn't have a good week, last week. My computer frizzed out the last Saturday of December. I took it to the computer place. I found out one week later that my windows program was corrupted. They had to do a complete restore. That means I had to backup all my writing. Actually that was a good thing because I knew I needed to do it but was too darn lazy :)

So now I have my computer back and all my writing. Unfortunately, I hit another block. I hate them. I wonder if I can write. DO I have what it takes? Nobody pays any attention to my work here, except for a few. That is very discouraging.

Also, I can't seem to find the rhythm that I need. What am I to do?

I don't know. But my hope of darkness chapter 3 is finished. I just need to do some editing and will soon post.

talk to everyone later.

Hallejulah. I did it. For thirty minutes I was able to dive into my story. I saw what the characters were seeing and I was able to write down their observations on my pages. It was as if they were communicating to me. I am exhausted but it is good exhaustion.

I love it!!!!

I want to experience that more!!!!

Well this is Christmas Day for everyone across this nation of ours (really most of the world that I know of). To most everyone this is a joyous time of spending time with the family, opening gifts ,etc.

Unfortuantely this isn't the case for me. I don't have a family where I live. So I get to spend this joyous time with myself. Christmas is really just another day for me, a day I get off work.

Still, I can't deny the pain I feel when I see and hear of others with their families. I can't deny how I wish and pray for a family of my own. I have this girl in mind to start a family with but she hasn't contacted me in three years. I still cling to that hope, maybe foolishly.

Well I want to wish everyone a joyous and peaceful New Year.

My work is dragging. My writing, I mean. It is getting sluggish. I am not sure what is wrong. I am having a devil of a time finishing my chapter 3. I can only do a paragraph a day before I have to quit.

Maybe I should wrestle through this slow time and try to write more.

I don't know.

I am thinking. Maybe my titles aren't very good. I see all these interesting Blog titles conveying all sorts of wacky thoughts. Me, I just try to be real.

Well my friend called me on Friday wanting me to come pick him up from Cincinnatti for Christmas, a 5 hour drive.. He is in the mission field and has no car or way back. Also, I found out that dear friend, his sister, is going to come pick him up this Wesdnesday. So I decided to go get him.

I drove up there yesterday, picked him up and drove back all in one day. It was a 10 hour drive but I broke out even. I paid for the gas up and he paid for the gas down. I bought lunch but I was treated to dinner. :)

We had interesting conversations. We have similar spiritual interests and the same taste in music so it worked out great.

My only regret is that I probably wont get to see my dear friend. She will be driving in this Wesdnesday, picking up her brother, and then leaving for Oklahoma. I will be working all day with no possibility of getting time off. Even if I were to get time off I don't know what her reaction would be. I love her but we haven't spoken in years.

Should I take time off anyway? I don't know. I think I will just pray and ask God if I can see her that day.

I came home yesterday to find no water in the house anywhere. I was unable to wash dishes, use the bathroom, take a shower. Ugh. I was wondering what happened with the city water.

Then I found out today that my roommate forgot to pay his water bill on time and they cut off his service. I wasn't happy at all. What irritates me is that he is so passive about this, while I am on the edge screaming for my shower. When I asked him to call the water company, he bit my head off. I wasn't the one who didn't pay the bill on time.

Well enough venting. Things happen I know. I shouldn't get on his case to hard. I will let this go.

This whole incident shows how dependent I am on city utilities. That scares me.

How did this sorry saga end? Well it was anticlimatic but still a good ending. :) The city turned on our water a few minutes after I made this entry. I apologized to my roommate for snapping at him and life goes on.

I know, I know not exactly publishing material. But, hey I will leave my fantasy for my writing.

This has been another rough week. I got a desk from my roommate but we broke my computer upon installing the new desk :). It wasn't to bad though because we were able to take it to the local computer shop and they fixed it for free. :) yay!!!! as my cousin would say.

That means though that I am a couple of days behind on my writing which is never good news. I am also behind in my reading and reviewing.

I sparred some more with my enemy. To tell the truth,I get tired of dealing with him. I am in no mood for a prolonged battle. I told him that I will just ignore him from now on. I was sure to let him know that so he wouldn't think I was too afraid to confront him. I just told him he wasn't worth my time.

Well now that I got my ole computer back time to get back to work. Actually my title was misleading. It was a rough half-week. :)

I made an enemy today. I take part in forums in my local newspaper. I interacted with this guy who pretty much said he detested me because I dared to disagree with him. What horrors!

That makes me sad. One for him for carrying such hatred. But also because I can't find anyone to have a decent discussion with that doesn't involve hatred or name calling.

Well I was able to get in one hour of writing on my book. One hour on my school assignment and a couple of hours reading newsletters and reviewing. I think I did pretty good for once. This was supposed to be a day devoted to writing. Well for once it actually worked out that way.

Now that my hell week is over, I can get to the part that I enjoy best, the writing. Or sometimes more accurately the pretending to write or the needing to write and not doing it.

I don't know which is worse, a bad review of your work or a good review. A good review bad? Well, yeah actually. Allow me to elaborate.

I got several good reviews on the first 2 chapters of my novel. I am working on the third. That is bad for me because I am having a devil of a time with the third chapter. See, I want it to live up to the first 2. I want to continue the drama & suspense. I don't want to let my readers down. So, I am going through writing & rewriting. ah the horrors!

I am just kidding. In a way I am not though. I am beginning to understand the pressure that writers of successful stories feel (not that my little excerpt is in any way successful). They don't want to let their fans down so they are under constant pressure to keep the story going. I feel the same way. To be honest some times I feel as if I am overwriting. Maybe I am. Maybe it would be better to just finish it and submit it for review. After all that is pretty much what I did with the first 2 chapters.

Well just a little taste for what it means to write. I am grateful for the readers who read and reviewed my work. Please don't misunderstand me. As the english say cheerio! (wait isn't that a cereal :), perhaps I mispelled that )
