Ughhh what do you mean it's Monday?

It's that day of the year again. The day when Christmas break finally ends and it's time to go back to work/school. I hate that day. And because this day is killing my brain and I can't think of anything to write about, I'm just going to ramble on about some random topics.

First things first. Kristin is having an awesome contest over at her blog. Prize is a book from three choices and a first chapter critique!

Today I was reading Emilia's post about internet distractions and I scrolled down to the comments and saw Kirsten's comments about a program that blocks certain sites for a required period of time. My computer is now a carrier of Leechblock (makes it sound like a disease, doesn't it?). I've scheduled it to block most of my favorite sites for the two hours after I come home from school. Isn't that awesome?! In 15 minutes I get to see if it works.

Yesterday I saw a new trailer for Lightning Thief. Well, it's not exactly new, but it's trailer three with additional footage. *fangirl squeals* If I was in my I-hate-movies-that-aren't-like-the-book mood I would be very ticked right now. But I threw that one out the window last year before HBP so I CAN'T WAIT! One month and eight days!!!

It seems like I was going to say something else too...

Oh, yeah. My WIPs. I need you guys to hold me to these even if I'm insane and biting off way more than I can chew...

Destiny -- I'm going to give it a quick readthrough and make a list of revision suggestions, along with deciding if it might just be better to rewrite it a second time with all the major changes going on.

Shipwrecked -- is coming back out of the closet. I almost got up at 12:30 last night to work on it. I have a great idea for an ending to the sequel and as soon as I get a spark of inspiration I'm going to start the rewrite of the original.

Jump -- still undergoing revisions. As soon as these are done I'll give it a last readthrough to make sure it all fits together and fix the grammar issues before I send it to betas.

ARML -- probably won't come off the shelf until after Destiny and Jump are with betas. Or at least Jump.

Keith's Story -- *shakes head* I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this. I don't know what's up, but I haven't had a good writing day since I finished ARML. It'll stay out and off the back shelf for awhile longer.

Copy -- my newest WIP. It seems to be coming along okay, but I think I need to sit down and have a nice long talk with Kaia. Maybe I'll do an interview with her next week.

That's all for today! Depending on what kind of mood I'm in I might have a short Copy teaser for you all tomorrow. :)
