Worried? Have No Fear

Hehe, does it get any better? Just a Traveler's Insurance commercial my Dad and I get a kick out of every time.

I love that dog. Thanks YouTube.

Revision is Imminent, but Progress Persists

So, after five years of planning, writing, re-writing, council meetings, friendly skirmishes, changing minds, and more planning, finally I've been able to start my books. Chapter 1 and 2 are now finished. Obviously there will need to be revision after revision after revision, but that's what moms are for. :P I love writing, and after finally just sitting down and getting it all down on paper, it's a lot easier than I thought. I'm not even planning out what I'm gonna write. I know the general direction it should go but I have no idea what I'm gonna write when I sit down. It just comes. I love it!! When I finish a chapter I read it through and fix any major problems or "plot bombs" as I call them then save the file, close the window and go to work. Of course I couldn't do this without the support of my family and friends so thank you!!! If you want to read the chapters, you will probably have to wait. I don't like giving these out lightly to anyone. Only my co-writer has read chapter one. Be patient, I will be able to release another excerpt soon. I also need to thank all those responsible for the massive Star Wars Universe that is out there. I have gained so much inspiration from them and their work. Thank you!!! A special thanks goes to the Star Wars: The Old Republic Team and their awesome ideas. Thank you Lucasarts and Bioware!!

Return of Mario!!!

Here we go!!! Hehe, thanks to the all-powerful technology of the Nintendo Wii I have been able to jump into the past and revive an old childhood joy. Super Mario 64, originally on Nintendo 64 (the first gaming console I can remember), has returned. Downloadable from the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii Dashboard, it provides me with undeniable memories and loads of fun!! I love this game! It's just fun to go back and really understand some of the things that I loved and didn't understand as a kid, but still had fun. Mamma mia!!

"Fathers of the Force" Update:

Hey everyone! I know it has been a while since I last posted anything regarding my books. I've been busy looking for work, going to New York, and trying to find time to even write. I'm glad to say that I have written some more stuff, but I'm not sure what I'm going to post. I've actually started on the book itself (the excerpts were from different parts of the series), and am almost done with my first chapter. My plot line for book 1: "Dawn of the Jedi" is pretty much set in stone, but we'll see where my characters take me. Thanks for keeping up with me, and I'll be posting something very soon.

New York

You know.. people tell me I'm tall, but I didn't know I was THAT tall. :P
It seems not all skyscrapers in New York are made of steel and glass... :)
Just me and my Aunt Raquel. We didn't actually walk the Brooklyn Bridge, but it was awesome to be there!! Thanks to Raquel for taking me to the Big Apple for my Senior Trip!! I had so much fun! I have lots more pictures, so if you guys would like to see them, just ask! I'll post them or show you depending on how close you live (sorry Mike, maybe in August). Thanks again Raquel!!

Yankees vs. Rays #2

Well, at least they came back and erased that loss from the other day!! Yankees win against Rays while I'm here, and that's good. Of course, when the Carter family shows up to a game, bad luck wins out. Rarely does the team we cheer for actually win. :) Go Yanks!!

Yanks vs. Rays: A Disappointing Loss

Well, I just went to the Yankee's game and got some cool pics and some super sweet souvenirs, but, sadly, the Yankee's disappointed me. They lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 7-9. It was a sunny day, however, and that made the game all the more amazing!! I don't remember the last time I was at a major league baseball game. Any one remember taking me? Keep pushin' Yanks!
