augh

Every time I try to post I have to stop. I've tried to post like, fifty times.

Okay- so I spent the whole morning at Borders. I read Vortex, Edge of Victory:Rebirth, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Be in awe of my sophisticated literature. After that, I watched Shannah play KOTOR on her laptop. 

THEN

I just got back from sitting at Albertsons for three hours asking people to donate money and food for the food drive. It's raining and I'm tired.

I probably won't be able to post when my cousins come. So don't think I'm dead or anything, okay?

I have two novel pitches/ideas. I'm so glad I finished Or Die Trying so I can start something else!



Number 1: Liadan, a middle schooler, goes to search for her crimelord mother after her dad dies. I like these kinds of stories. I got this from a awesome dream.


Number 2: Kind of a background on Vana Dorja(from my current book) and her poor childhood on Marahasia.


Oh, and I finally got an idea for my rewrite.


My quick summaries of the two Star Wars books I read today.


FOTJ: Vortex(Spoilers!)
Wow. What a doozy. This was a very highly-anticipated book, and it was worth it. Fate of the Jedi has been going remarkably slow, it's been passing quickly without much happening. But this is where the plot speeds up like greased lightning. 
The Jedi Order rescues Valin and Jysella.
They make plans against Daala
Tahiri's trial is almost resolved
Jaina/Jag get re-re-engaged
And the dung beetle of a leader Kenth Hamner commits suicide.
 And so much has happened to Luke and Ben, I'm not sure if I understand it.
UPDATE:
The dung beetle(Kenth Hamner) doesn't commit suicide. He duels with Saba Sebatyne, because he was trying to be a pacifist wimp while the council tried to actually get somewhere, and kriffin stabbed her in the chest before dying.


Edge of Victory: Rebirth
I'd been really wanting to read this because I love Kyp Durron. It was a little disappointing. Not much happens. Ya gotta love Nen Yim though.

I'm on the edge of my seat until Ascension(or is it Conviction?) next year.

  1. I just read Diary of a Wimpy Kid, it was pretty good.

    Number 1 sounds very interesting, and so does Number 2. Is your novel going to be sold in stores, or is it just a personal novel?

    And you finished Vortex?! Awesome!!! Just out of curiosity, what happens to Vestara Khai? Just curious.

    -Barriss :-D

  3. No, it's just personal. I'm not that good! xD
    Vestara? She goes around making smart remarks about Jedi and Ben, and betrays everyone and confuses me.

    Oh yeah, and she kills Taalon to put him out of his misery while he's getting tortured by Abeloth.

  4. Kenth died?!? That's terrible! Though like I've said before, I don't really keep up with the post NJO novels, so maybe it isn't? lol

  5. Amaranthine: Speaking of personal novels, where do you go to publish just one copy? I googled it, but couldn't find anything. Or do you just sorta put it together yourself?

    So Jag and Jaina were SPOILER: re-re- engaged. *laughs* I think it'd start to get really pathetic if they break up again.

  7. Leia-The NaNoWriMo winners get it from CreateSpace, but I know Lulu is a great place to get it published!

    Alex-Kenth was pretty pathetic......
    Barriss-Diary of a Wimpy Kid is like junk food for your brain. xD "Interesting" no. "Addicting"? Yes.

  8. I came across Lulu, but they made it sound like you had to sell the books. I only want one copy. I don't want it sold either. Does the site let you print just one copy? I'm trying to find information for a friend of mine and for myself. Since you seem to know, I hope you don't mind me asking. =)
