Still Waiting

5:45 PM

Well, as soon as I finished school today, I went downstairs and worked on my song. It might not be much, but I'm happy with how it's turning out. It's kind of like a theme song to one of my books. And that's kind of cool if you think about it. Once I get it finished I'd like to make a music video of it. It shouldn't be that hard, because I took a bunch of experiences from when I was younger and put it to music (Morgan is working on the guitar part for me).

Even though I don't like cold weather, I can put up with it when the world is beautiful. And this morning, I was sitting at my window, with the sun as bright as could be, and the sky was a deep blue. It was breathtaking. So...yeah, I'm tired of winter. But I do like seeing ice-covered trees.

Have you ever wanted something really bad, but you felt like you would never be able to have it? Maybe it was a dream, maybe it was a car. But you didn't think like you would ever be able to get your hands on it. That's how I sometimes feel about writing. And I'll tell you something: I find it hard to finish books. I've been writing stories for a while--and I've only finished two stories (they were short stories). I thought that maybe I wasn't a real writer. But I was reading a book for teens who like to write and the author said that a lot of teens start books, and get bored with them. She said that when that happens you could lay off the writing for a while. There are two books right now that have been floating around in my mind. They are both haunting me. One of them is the My Meadows series. The other is a story that has been on my mind for nearly two weeks--but that first was a little shaking and it had a crash land (I stopped writing). But maybe I'll work on it tonight. Maybe I'll get to now my characters better. It's an action-packed adventure--and I love adventure. There's also a character in it that is based on one of my best friends. The story seems exciting--in my mind, at least..

Well, it's time for supper, and I want to eat all my veggies, because I made brownies for desert. I guess I'll leave you now. I'll try and post on Saturday so I can tell you all about the Nerf activity my youth group is having tomorrow night. It should be really fun. So goodnight, blogger buds!

    Don't worry about not finishing your stories - sometimes it is good to let them simmer for a while and then come back to them. Let's face it - starting is the hardest part so you've got that done!


Thanks for taking the time to comment--I read each one :)
