Words, Books, and Red…

           Well, it’s been one of those weeks! Family drama all around and not much of writing done. Sad on both accounts. But the week is over and we are here, Tuesday, October 26, 2010 and I am finally sitting down for an update.
            So first of all, I just wanted to share the good news of finally hitting 40K on my next novel. It’s a record breaker for me so I’m quite excited! I thought this would be a halfway point but realized that it’s not even close. I’m falling in love with my characters more and more and it seems as if the story is expanding beyond what I planned. Yes, it’s much better than I planned.
            On the other hand, I have started outlining another book I’ll be starting here shortly. I want to get all the ideas on paper before I forget it. Book #2 is a priority now, but book #3 is not far behind.
            I’m also excited about the fact that Scrivener is now available for Windows. While I’m an Apple girl all the way, I have not been able to buy my own Mac as of right now. The Scrivener for Windows is just a beta version but I’m hoping it will help me keep my ideas organized nonetheless. 
This last week, although stressful, has been a great week for me in book universe. I received my copy of Torment by Lauren Kate in the mail and have started reading it.
I also found out that I will be receiving Matched by Ally Condie
and Real Live Boyfriends ARC by E. Lockhart.

 I cant wait to read all three and write dazzling reviews.

            By the way, before I forget I saw two movies recently. Easy A and Red. While Easy A has been out for a while and I’m sure you’ve heard lots about it, Red has not. 
I loved that movie! Between the cast of characters, plot line, and fast moving action the movie was hilarious and surprising. Go see it and then let me know what you think.
            Well, I’m off to the magical land of …Boston. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! Read a book or something!
            Much love,
            Valia
