Things are better here. I finally decided to enhance my calm and concentrate on writting. The 8 point story is coming along nicely. I even have 4 of the 8 points used in my story already. The story itself is really just a quick moment by moment written story where I have no clue what comes next but somehow my fingers and my characters do. Ever write that way? I do sometimes, this is one of those times. Its an interesting experience. Time to get back to writing the story now though. My character Tara has her hands on her hips and is glaring at me for stopping since we were on a role. I cannot help it if I need a break though right? *Picks up where she left off much to Tara's approval...*

I haven't posted in a while. Sorry. Just so much going on. I was working on this story I completed as a contest entry and finished only to find out that the 8 different things that had to be included in the story were changed and I had to write a whole new story. I had even emailed the lady in charge of the group a month or two ago and she never even bothered to mail me back. It would have been nice if she had bothered to do me a kindness but I guess thats asking too much from people sometimes. Anyhow, I ended up enjoying the characters I created in my short story and so I am adding more story behind it. On the side I am working on a new project story for the new 8 point contest. I am still ticked that I had to do a new one but am calming down as the story takes form. One prop I can give myself is that I think fast and can come up with a story or idea at the drop of a hat. Thats an old saying. I think I have hung around my folks too much if I am saying it. Shesh. Anyhow, back to my story here. Cross your fingers and wish me luck if you would be so kind.
