Game On

I rewrote the first chapter in Cinderella Ending.  It still needs a lot of work.  I was a little repetitive but it's not that big a deal.  I can fix it or leave it.  Thomas was thinking and I felt like he kept vacillating between thoughts coming back to his oiginal theory.  I do that all the time, but it is probably redundant in book form.  I have to mull it over some more then try to make decisions tomorrow.

I worked for several hours but only managed 1,000 words. 

I'm going to try to write tomorrow - get back into the swing of it and get focused.  I know what the ending is but will it really be a Cinderella ending?  I don't have a clue because I really don't know what I'm doing.  I don't even know what I'm doing here.  For some reason, I always thought that if you were on the right path then your journey would make sense.  Everything would sort of fall into place, like love and stuff.

I'm not sure if this is the path or the detour.

The main reason for my existentialism is that I fell asleep to a 2012 doomsday show on the History channel and I got a little freaked.  Naturally, I had a nightmare about it.  No one seems to think it's a big deal - like maybe it's another Y2K.  And maybe it is.  But according to the show, they are predicting a tilt to the earth's axis based on its allignment in space.  And depending on how much we rotate, it could have dire consequences.  This is not Mayan or Ancient Chinese mumbo-jumbo.  It's real - science.

I'm surprised that more people aren't freaking out or at least having a sense of urgency in their relationships.  Maybe preparing for the end somehow or in my case maxing out every credit card possible.  Are you even remotely thinking about this?  Getting affairs in order?  Being nicer to people, etc.?  Or am I sounding like an idiot right now?

I had better get this fucking book written so it can have a May 2012 release date.  Otherwise there could be the possibility that I write it and no one gets to read it.  How dumb would that be?

Okay doomsday - game on!


  1. I don't worry about it because there's nothing I can really do aside from live each day to the fullest. Which I should work on...

    ANYWAY, with writing, you never really know where exactly you are. The detour might be a path or the path you wanted might end up blocked somehow. You kind of just have to follow it at times. Just keep working on it and you'll find you way. (:

    Best of luck!

  2. To be honest, we're doing the things that are 'just bonus' if it ends up being nothing. As in, we're stocking up on extra necessities like powdered milk, toothpaste, etc. If nothing happens, then we save having to spend money on those things for a while. :)

  3. I don't ponder The End much. Kind of heart breaking if you have little children. Or don't want to die, in general. I have thought about having a few days worth of emergency supplies around for some terrible event. Living on the west coast it'll probably be an earthquake or tsunami.

  4. Thanks for commenting everyone. You're right, Marlena - I'll take your advice and just keep writing.

    I'm at a weird place right now because today is Cinderella Club's one year anniversary. I just received another lovely 5-star review on Amazon and the book is still selling pretty well.

    Since then I have a bunch of things finished and set for publication so I've been very focused and all that. It's the waiting that's hard. Waiting to see if I can match my first book's success or better it. It's nice having something to look forward to.

    And J.R., I'm all about planning for the future and I guess the threat of an end kind of shits on that for me. I think maybe there's a story in there.
