Four Months Isn't Too Long, Is It?

So, I took a bit of a hiatus from pretty much everything. No tweeting, no Facebook, no blogging, and barely e-mailing. I resigned from my horrible job in May, and I couldn't be happier. I've spent pretty much every waking moment writing or editing, though most of that is work that will probably never be published. I was just writing for fun. I started to work on my WIP which I put off in March, and lo and behold, I think I will have it edited and ready to go in a week or so, barring any unforseen circumstances.

I tried to buy a house, but since the mortgage crash it has become ridiculously difficult, at least in my area. I'll soldier on. I don't mind my rental so much. I've been here five years, though. That's a lot of money I could have put towards a mortgage. Hindsight and all that, right?

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. Well, not Harry himself, but the world. Now that the last movie has played, I find I have nothing to wait for anymore. I used to wait for Star Wars and Star Trek movies, then Lord of the Rings movies, then Harry Potter movies and books, and now there's nothing out there that has grabbed my attention. Any suggestions?

Not much more to report. I was just popping in to say I'm still alive and still writing. How goes it with y'all? I hope to hear about loads of success, guys. It'd perk me right up.

nothing to look forward too- heeheehee!
maybe, try the hunger games and game of thrones! :)
and i totally agree, harry potter is not nearly as charming as the world he lives in!
glad things are going well your way!

Don't forget about the Hobbit! And, the next film in the Batman trilogy. Plus, Pottermore is releasing!

Traci said...

Yea! She lives! Discover of Witches is a fabulous new series by Deborah Harkness. And YES Hunger Games is fab as well. Also Incarceron by Catherine Fisher.

Traci said...

Sorry, yeah, that is Discovery of

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I'll totally look into them.

Good to have you back. I'm in the same boat; working on WIPs that I've put off too long. Getting rejected by publishers has become my other hobby...

Also making arrangements to move overseas. that it's all up with Lord of the Rings (except for the Hobbit movie they're coming out with) and Harry Potter...erg, that's a tough one. What could replace those? You may have to supply it yourself.
