I'm a terrible blogger. Really. Whenever I follow other people's blogs I want them to post often, however, I don't do it myself. It's probably because many people don't comment on mine or actually read it but I'm not fretting much about it because why should I? Frankly, I'm holding my end of the bargain!

I haven't written much since I started writing on the first chapter over the a week ago and I blame Dragon Age 2 on this. It's so addicting. My friends who've had it have already beaten it and I'm like..."yeah I'm still playing and not close to finishing". Now I think it's rather sad that I'm jealous of people who have the time to play a game that I've already used 30 hrs of my life on. Life has gotten in the way and my dad is preparing for upcoming surgeries so those are higher on the priority list to the other things that are important. I need to clean my room...and my bathroom. Wow Okay back to writing! Well talking about it.

I'm going to start or at least try to write a short stories to get/garner attention to my style of writing. I have no idea what that is but I like to think it's closer to Sophie Kinsella's than Stephanie Meyer's. I need to invest time to actually write than just think about writing. What does that accomplish? Nothing.

I'm writing! Okay well I STARTED writing. HOORAY! I know you're totally totally excited, although you have no idea what the hell I'm writing. I've been working on an outline of the story thanks to the massive suggestions (or is it a gigantic supportive push?) by Amanda. I'm at a block right now in terms of finishing the outline of the whole story so instead on another suggestion I'm starting to write the dang story! Hooray for PROLOGUES!

Right now I'm at a cafe/coffee shop chain in Athens which helps me write (I don't do this at all cause I have the 'net at home) but this is has less distractions or so I thought. Well compared to my home I'm like okay I can watch tv. Here not so much.

I like how I typed that and it's been about 5 minutes since I wrote that because I'm distracted because I did this:  "ohhhhhhh look at that pretty little sign of the coffee shop! OMG it's JOE'S not JOES" instead of writing." Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me? Has anyone become more ADD in the recent years?

Well anyways I'm writing a rom com and hoping to either have it published, self published by selling it on kindle. Does anyone have kindle? I want to know. I'm thinking of buying it in the near future. Also if you do would you be interested in buying a rom com story? like what would the most you'd be willing to spend?

I'm getting back into the writing process...and when I mean the writing process I mean writing an original rom com story that hopefully will become published. If not then I can tap into the whole self publishing and make money off of that. Don't know what I'm talking about?

I've been reading a bunch of articles recently telling how reading a regular old bound book is so like..20th century or rather the old millennium. Because of inventions such as Kindle, nook, iPad, etc more and more people who don't have either many of their writings published by a publishing company are having more luck in self publishing. Writers can sell their stories and can get more of the profits for themselves. I'm not saying that I'd have the same luck as the others who've been so lucky themselves but it would nice. Also they say if you have your rates instead of say 6.99 and lower it to .99 then more likely you'll sell more. So who knows. It would be nice. It would be even nicer if I could quite my job and write what I want to write and not have to worry about money...ohh that would be so nice.....
