New Beginnings

Ok, time to change blogs and switch hosts... I know ALL ABOUT changing hosts. Damned internet-based morons... but that's neither here nor there.

ANYWAY, I'll be transfering all my previous posts on livejournal to here when i have the time. As if I don't have enough writing to do! Well, I need to start writing on a regular basis to get into practice more.

As for the book I'm working on, Haunted Cuyahoga (a collection of ghost stories from northeastern Ohio,) I'm waiting to hear back about the rewrites. I've left about 3 messages with the publisher so I hope I'm not driving him nuts. I just want to know if I'm getting the okay so I can finish the book and move on to other projects. It's never good to get tired of what you're working on so I want to get it out before I lose momentum... again.

So, yes, I'm a writer. Eventually an author, if i have to hold someone by their neck and force them to publish something! I'm sure I'll feel better when i actually get paid for writing for a change, instead of just donating my time and work, hoping someone will recognize it as good and offer me something. Life's never that easy though.

I'm working on getting a social life still. Not to say a "club kid" or anything. Bitchy, dramatic people annoy me too much to ever be confortable in that scene. I guess more of the "Broken Hearts Club" I had back in college. Just good people to hang out with who have some intelligence, aside from my usualflighty or long-distance friendships. Perhaps that will be easier when i get back to college in the fall (I never finished my degree in... well, I started in vocal music, switched to psych, and then went to 'undeclared' shortly before I took a 5 year hiatus.) I just don't want to end up being too boring... which is another subject I hope to cover in yet another book project i have roughed out on paper, sitting in my desk, waiting for this project to be over with.

Well, back to the waiting game.
