This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

Boring Tuesday..

I must say…

I am annoyed with Blogger. Le sigh. Mostly i am annoyed with not being able to respond to comments the proper way.

Mayhaps I’ll have to slowly change things over to WordPress as it has that option.

But don’t worry my dear readers, I shant do anything crazy yet.

I might just suffer through blogger for the next 15 months, and then when i move to the UK, and Guy and I have made our own server and websites, I’ll have my blog just how I want it and won’t have to rely on silly little programs such as this one.

yeah mayhaps that is just the way to go for now.

I feel slightly bad, as when i bought my Flying Monkeys and they arrived, I was highly disappointed. Instead of emailing the person to inform them that the description was wrong, and that I had wanted Lobster Clasps. I simply stated in the feedback I left that the description was incorrect for the objects. Now, I did not leave neutral or negative feedback. I clicked that Positive button, because they did arrive quickly, and the transaction was painless. I just commented in my post of “i love them but.. “
Well, she emailed me today apologizing. So now I feel bad. Gee I’m glad I didn’t hit that negative button.
But when it comes down to it, she should have checked her descriptions, since ALL her items that are stitch markers say that. Oh well, I still plan on buying more, and I’ll just leave a glowing feedback on the next one.

Still plunking through Bride of Casa Dracula.

Here is a prediction: she’s about to introduce werewolves.

Lets see if I’m right.

I did not get anything done on my vest last night. I just had no motivation. I’m in that final stretch. Tonight after I shower and feel more awake, I’ll put it on. Check the pinning, then stitch it up and be done with it. Woohoo.
I do want to do it again, but out of different yarn, and I’ve learned a few things while doing this one. I know I need to lengthen the base without adding to the width.

A Hard Day’s Bite: Been mulling a few things, but haven’t made any decisions. I don’t want to lean towards falling into the same lines as Charlaine Harris or Kim Harrison, or LKH for that matter. If you don’t know what I’m talking about its the “Oh my god. She wrote about this. She’s copying them!” Charlaine recently wrote a blog about that circumstance. Someone made the comment of “Charlaine added motorcycle gangs into her story! She’s copying LKH.”
Well…. people get over it. It’s kind of hard to not incorporate things that are actually quite common in real life. Such as motor cycle groups. I have friends that are part of different motorcycle groups here in Colorado. Am I going to ignore a good plot because *gasp* it might involve a motorcycle?Also, it makes sense in the fact that Vamps and Werewolves tend to be part of the subculture. And what do you find in the sub culture? Gangs, adrenaline, and danger. No. Now, mind you I have nothing penned in that regard, but I’m using it as an example. Same goes for politics. Which is really what the whining was about. Yes, Sookie’s world has gotten very Vampire Political, just like Antia’s world.
But if your going to whine about that… well… Anne Rice kinda got the ball rolling on that. Remember The Theater of Vamps? Well, that was basically the start of the vampire political structure. Armand was in charge.

I’m rambling. Lets move on.
Umm…
Ummmm….
Cold snap here in Colorado? It’s been freaking cold the past two days. Thank goodness I hadn’t removed my heating blanket yet. Cause I’d never get to sleep otherwise.

It’s a boring Tuesday thus far. Just sayin’ .

    Don’t worry about being accused of copying those authors. Focus on taking things in your own way. It’s been a long time since anyone has written anything that was completely original. What matters is the author’s approach to things. Look at Neil Gaiman. The Graveyard Book is unappologetically a knock off of the Jungle Book. And it’s fantastic. (Finally got to read it the other day) But most of his stuff is like that. Obviously inspired by something else, with his own twist on things. If people wanna focus on the similarities instead of the differences, that’s their problem. And this I thought you would get a laugh out of. http://io9.com/5182275/what-would-isaac-asimov-say-about-syfys-name-change

    It’s hard not to be influenced by authors you read and like.The key is to take what you like put your own twist and it and make it yours.Hate to hear about the cold weather it’s been just great here.Spent most of weekend barefooted
