I'm quite impressed with myself today.

ok it may not seem like a lot but I have accomplished in finishing about 6 1/2 pages of my book today I'm quite stoked about it.... now it's time to lay back and relax and getting some reading done myself my back and neck are killing me and I'm quite tired got another busy day to do tomorrow.

Finally productive...

finally I sat down and started typing in the edits I started making of what I have so far.  Yeah that started to make me snooze, editing is never any fun.  I don't know how editors and stuff do this all the time.  Well anywho I had finally sat down and just started typing it was great the ideas just kept pouring out of my head and whatnot and got four pages written... now of course mind you this is 4 letter sized pages, since I'm only just using word for my writing so much simpler and I already know the program.  Any rate wrote these 4 pages and will probably write more tonight after the kids go to sleep cause it helps when its quite around.

The weather here has been pretty whacky today been snowing one minute then sunny and blue the next, crazy ass weather.  I think they might have helped with just sitting down and writing. Oh and that fact that I haven't had the desire to get on Second Life right now or hang around on facebook. Though I love my friends on those and love hanging out with them online.  I really need to batten down the hatches here at home and get busy on this cause I really do want to get this published one day.  And hopefully I won't have to do the publishing myself though I will if I have too.

I also want to take a moment to thanks everyone who has supported me through this... My mother, my kids, my best friend, my friends on Facebook and Second life. It means the world to me that you are supporting me if not pushing me to keep going on, even if there have been moments where I've wanted to give up on it.  Thank you and I love you all

nevermind

ok I decided to go without the fancy banners for now.... I know I know I need to make up my mind right

What's been done lately

I've added some more stuff to my blog, it's a slow progress but I guess anything worth while isn't anything to be rushed right.  So I've been working on some pages right now I've been working on 2009 which is located here. http://bookloverscozycafe.blogspot.com/p/read-in-2009.html I've completed April which is located here, http://bookloverscozycafe.blogspot.com/p/april-2009.html, and I need to get the font I used for Aprils Banner from my old commputer so I can make the rest of the months, but that's all I'm waiting for on May's 2009 books, which is located here... ok nevermind on May at the moment I seem to have made a goof by putting June on May oh well it will get fixed.... in the mean time I'm also planning on what's going to happen next in the book. I've been waiting on some feedback and edits from a friend on it so hopefully she will like it.

New computer

Yay I'm able to do more now since getting my new computer so now I have more time getting things done on here.... I have completed April & May in 2009. Still lots of work but throughout time it will all come together and hopefully I will get followers to help things along... but until then I will keep going and see how things pan out... while I may not be a religious person I still believe in fate and faith.  Oh and Monthly Reads are located within the read years by the way.

new blog, new design, new methods

something went awry with the other blog and I said screw it... and started over.... all my posts I transferred over though, I don't know how many people actually read them, or how many people actually have visited my blog. Oh well keeps me entertained I guess maybe one day I will get more followers but until then I'm kinda glad I only have none or so little that way I don't have to keep up with any expectations of posting reviews so quickly. lol crazy right.... no not really what's crazy is that it's almost 4:30 in the morning here and I've been working on this dang blog for hours trying to get it fixed only to having to start over... oh well that's ok because at times I like starting out fresh give me a sense of freshness and right now I can use all the freshness along with creativeness I can. Oh and I'm going about the review stuff a whole different way, I think the way I am doing it now it a little more simpler than before... I mean granted I will still have an author page eventually but that will just be like for Author info and what not... reviews will be determined by year and maybe months too I haven't gotten that far yet..though it does have me thinking a bit... on how I can break things down some... hmmmmm well for now it will have to wait cause I need to get going to bed my kids knowing them will be up in like 2 hours if I'm lucky, and I mean reaaal lucky 3 lol.

progress

yayyy making some progress... I have completed 17 pages with my editing, and I've completed 2 pages of chapter 5... I don't know about you but I am quite excited about it... and welp here's those two pages of chapter 5 for your viewing pleasure....


Chapter 5
The next morning I wake up and think to myself that last night couldn’thave happened, that there wasn’t an accident, no gruesome scene, no death.  But if the accident didn’t happen then thatmeans Warren is not sleeping next to me, I frown at that thought.  So biting my lip I roll myself over backwardsa little and reach out with my hand behind me, I feel the warmth of skin nextto me.   I sigh in relief and roll myselfover completely so that I’m lying on my side next to him.
I watch him sleep for a moment.
I smile, I’m completely comfortable with Warren, when I am with him Ifeel alive again.
Moving closer to him I drape my arm over his stomach, lean in and givehim a kiss on his shoulder.  He doesn’twake, just roll onto his side facing away from me.  I growl in my throat, but gently move hishair out of the way, moving closer to the back of his neck.  I kiss him there and this time he lets out asoft moan.  Next thing I know is he’sgrabbing my arm and pulling me almost on top of him as he rolls back onto hisback.
“Mmm, good morning.” He says eyelids barely cracked open, I smile backat him. “Morning” I lean myself on my arm against him, I could definitely getused to this. 
“How did you sleep?”
“I slept great, I loved having you in my arms, while I slept” he wrapshis arms around me puling me closer into him.
“How about you?”
I get a little hot in my cheeks and smile, “well once I fell back tosleep, I slept great myself. Being in your arms helped me get the best sleep Ihave had since my parents died.”
I look at him, he smiles a proud man smile, he then gets out of the bedand heads out the door.  I sit up andlean myself against the headboard. Warren comes back into my room, I immediately take a good look at him, Ifeel the heat start rising in my cheeks again. He’s standing there checking his cell in his underwear, his hairslightly messy from sleep. His slender body just there in all its glory, helooks very good in his underwear, wonder if he’d look good naked? Instant heatin my cheeks as I blush with the thought, just as Warren looks up at me,smiles, golden green eyes staring at me “Randie, what are you thinking aboutover there?” Shaking my head to wake myself out of the trance I was just in “ohnothing, I guess I’m not fully awake yet.”
He looks at me giving me a sly smile, I wonder if he believes me or ifhe knows what I was just thinking about. “Ok, is there going to be any coffee?”I climb out of my bed.
“Yeah I will go get some made and let you get dressed.”
I start walking towards the door when he grabs my arm and pulls me intohim. I place my hands upon his chest he immediately wraps his arms around meplacing his lips against mine.  I openmyself up to his kiss, his lips so soft and warm I just lose myself inhim.  I can tell he’s losing himself too,because he pulls me in tighter to him, to where I can feel his excitement allover his body.
Reluctantly I pull myself away from his embrace.
“Okay, I’ll get that coffee going.”
Before he can say anything I rush out my bedroom, closing the doorbehind me.  I’m floating on cloud nine onthe way down the stairs and to the kitchen, until I walk into the kitchen. Iquickly fall off my cloud when I see Shaun in the kitchen making coffee andDorian sitting at the counter with an empty coffee mug.  He looks up “Hey Randie” Shaun turns around “Morningcuz” then turns back to the coffee maker to finish up.  “Looks like you had a sleep over last night,I hope you were safe at least.” He barely turns and gives me the raised eyebrowlook, my eyes get all huge.
“Yes Warren stayed over last night!”
I notice in my peripheral view that Dorian is making some disapprovingface.
“BUT! We didn’t do anything, you perve's.”
I go sit down at the counter, I look down at it “There was an accidenton the highway after we left the party. It was Mackenzie Rudderick, her boyfriend Travis Smith and his brotherMichael Smith.”  I look up to see thatthey’ve both gone wide eyed, it was a minute or two before anyone spoke, thenShaun drops the lid to the coffee maker and says “No kidding?” he pushes the buttonto start it.  I just shook my head, “wereyou involved in this accident?” Dorian who looks really concerned, sittingpretty stiff in his chair grabbing the country tightly asks.  I swallowed “No, I was just following Warrenhome from the party and he saw the accident, I just made the phone call forhelp.”  Looking down I got upset withmyself for not doing more. 
“So are they ok?” Shaun asks leaning on the counter.  “Travis died before the paramedics arrived,he was thrown out of the car, and his neck was broken.” I remember back to theaccident and seeing him lying on the ground face down, or well what wassupposed to be face down, though his head was almost looking straight up to thesky.  “It was pretty gross.” I walk overto get myself a cup of coffee before continuing on, the guys are just sittingwaiting, whether it was their turn to coffee or for me to finish telling aboutwhat happened last night. 
I finish up taking my first sip, it was so good.  “Michael is in pretty bad shape, but I don’tknow how he is doing today, they wouldn’t give us any information lastnight.  Mackenzie was pronounced dead atthe scene, but funny thing though she is somehow alive, it’s very strange.”
I wipe away the tears that were starting when Warren appears, he wavesat Shaun, then sees Dorian and glares at him real quick before leaning down andgiving me a kiss.  That made one of Shaun’seyebrows rise, and heat rise to my cheeks though I don’t know if it was fromthe fluttering feelings I get from him, or the irritation I got because of hisshowing off in front of Dorian.  I’m notsure what Shaun is thinking but I am going to grill him later.
“Uh, Randie?” I look up at Dorian
“Yes Dorian?”
“Can I please speak to you alone?”
I first look to Warren who again is glaring at Dorian, then I look atShaun who is motioning his eyes towards Dorian, “Um, Okay, sure I guess.” 
Dorian and I walk out the back door into the backyard; I could feel Warren’seyes burning into our backs.
“Well Dorian, what is it that you wanted to talk to me about?”

Reading/writing funks... and all around lost

I've been trying to work on my book, but haven't been feeling the creative juices, not since my external hard drive decided to wipe everything off of it. That included my book and all the edits I had made to it.  I've started working on the edits again but this time I'm working on the edit on a hard copy of chapters 1-4... I'm always starting to write chapter 5, but then again that process is coming out slowly as well.

My reading omg I have been in such a reading funk, I've read maybe three books this year which doesn't do good for my goodreads yearly challenge.

I'm also in a major funk, slump, desperately in need of a muse, on the title.  I cannot think of one to save my life.  So in a month or two I will probably be having a name this book contest.. cause my most recent edits should be completed or near to being completed on chapters 1-4.  It will include a mention when the book is published, and probably a gift card of sorts. so stay tuned for that.

Until then I'm going to go work on my book and probably work on the my reviews this weekend as well
