The Grammys are tonight. I'm SO. EXCITED. I love the Grammys. It's the only awards show I absolutely can't miss- just love to watch the performances. I don't actually care who wins. Because you know what? When so many of my favorite artists perform music in one place, on one show-- I TOTALLY WIN.
The show is actually on right now. And I'm not watching. I've recorded it, and I'm not letting myself watch until I reach my writing goal tonight. See how grown-up and dedicated I am?? :)
There are also so many reasons to watch this year's Grammys- 1. LL Cool J is hosting. I mean, come on. 2. Adele's first post-op performance. 3. The Whitney tribute. 4. The Etta James tribute. 5. Will Kanye do anything crazy?
Random change in subject-
The second group of entries over at Cupid's Literary Connection goes up tonight, I think. Last week they went up around 9, so I'm assuming it'll be about the same this time. I'm nervous. I wasn't, and then I was, and then I wasn't, and here I am again- nervous. Now that I've looked at the query I submitted, I hate it. Of course. It's entirely too long. *sigh*
Another random change in subject-
It is really, really, really hard for me to get my head out of In The Between. When I started working on my Nanowrimo book, the YA contemporary, I purposely wrote from a guy's POV just so I could tear myself away from the voice of Harper, the MC of In The Between. And it did help- and it was pretty fun to think like a guy.
But in the fantasy novel I've started, the MC needs to be a girl. And it's hard to tell Harper to shut up so I can write a new story. :) Maybe if I can officially decide on a name for the new MC in the new book, it will help me separate them.
Plus, I miss the world of In The Between. I love those characters so much. I really want to write another book about them...but I figure there's no point in any kind of sequel unless the first one gets published. So that's hard too. On the other hand, I may not have a choice. My brain might not let me let go of the sequel, no matter what. We'll see.
And LAST RANDOM THOUGHT-
It's so much fun to have new followers thanks to the Writers Platform Building Campaign! If you're a writer and you haven't signed up yet, you should!! I think you have til Wednesday. But I'm not sure. You should probably double-check because these days it seems that I very rarely know what I'm talking about. :)
