I am sooo EXCITED. My short story “Christmas In Hawaii” will appear in “Christmas Delights.” Published by Love Lane Books Limited. I could not believe it when I saw my name on the list of authors, I just stared at it. When I saw what RJ Scott was doing and offering to do for new writers I was thrilled. It’s not easy getting your name out there and having your name connect to a popular established author is huge. At first I thought there wasn’t enough time. I had to think of a concept, develop the characters, and plot. So I turned it over in my mind and thought why the fuck not. All I could do is try. The worse that could happen is that she would say no, and if that were the case I would just curl up in a ball in my bed, hide under my covers and quite possibly suck my thumb. (Thank the Goddess she said yes). My story is now with an editor. I have been biting my nails since I sent it. Nothing like having your torso cut open, having your insides taken out, put on display, and poked at. OK that may be just a bit of an exaggeration and possibly a bit dramatic. But the waiting is killing me. I will keep you updated and let you know if my sanity holds out.

I met a girl *big smile*. Well let me correct that, I’ve known her for a while. We started out as friends, just sort of hanging out, going shopping, going to the movies you know the sort of stuff you do with friends. I’m not sure when it jumped from friendship to more but that’s usually how it happens. We started texting and talking on the computer more. Soon I found that I was spending a great deal of my time with her. I would get lost in her, and forget about things that needed to be done. One day I realized that things were moving too fast and I told her that we needed to take a break. I tried to explain that I was trying to become a writer and this is something that I have always wanted to do so I needed to concentrate, focus. She didn’t take this to well.
Soon I saw a whole new side to her, she was around constantly, and I could never get anything done. I never realized how little I knew about her. People warned me but I never listen but it’s true, that Procrastination, she can be a real bitch sometimes. Her endless tricks to keep me from writing, using Facebook, Candy Crush, and Youtube clips of funny animals, even now she laughs as I sit and write about her knowing she is keeping me from what I should really be doing. But that’s it no more Procrastination, we’re finished. I write this as a warning to all who may run into this conniving witch. She lures you in with false promises of, “it won’t take long,” or “promise we’ll do it tomorrow.” Don’t listen to her turn and run away because trust me when I tell you Procrastination is a bitch.
