The Most Random Post Ever…

Okay, so it’s been a week or so and I feel like I should post something here, if only to get that whole embarrassing “cheese incident” lower on the page.

I don’t really have *too* much to say except that I’m fairly busy these days. I’m working on a new book, and add that to like, the hundred websites I check daily and well, you know what I’m saying.

I did finish Alyson Noel’s “Saving Zoe,” which was just, so good. I really had a hard time putting it down, and read it in three or four days (which is incredible since I’m writing and teaching and still have that thing called a toddler ruling my life). I love how there’s this whole world of YA fiction that I didn’t realize existed…. I’m reading a lot of books by new authors lately, and I’m so excited about it.

Yes, the Twilight books are still on that list. I’m so behind on the whole Bella and Edward thing it’s not even funny. I mean, I don’t even know who Bella and Edward are, and that’s like, pathetic. Bite Me. Ha! Get it? Bite Me? It’s a vampire book . . . No? Okay. Whatever.

I must say that I’m *SO* excited for the Project Runway finale. I can’t wait to see what Christian has done, because his designs blow me away.

And finally . . . my horoscope for today, which says: You see possibility where others only see disappointment—make the most of it.

And I have to wonder, isn’t this true of all writers/creative people? Because when you think about it, we write and write and write and send out dozens of letters until someone bites . . . we may get neurotic and depressed and totally bummed out, but at least we keep going (even when others are saying it’s a complete waste of time or get a “real job”).

No, I’m not a big fan of horoscopes (unless I really like what it has to say), but yeah, overall I do tend to see the silver lining—always hoping for the best.

I’m a Gemini, by the way, and this is supposed to be a great year for me financially. Specifically it says: Money will definitely be coming your way and will greatly influence your personal beliefs, dreams and philosophies.

Don’t you just love YA Fiction, Vampire Books, Project Runway and Good News? Me too!

~Love, Leigh~
