Let's build a world. Explore what we believe by writing. In many ways my characters’ experiences with fate, destiny and free-will mirror my own. What is up to us and what isn’t? It’s one of the great questions of the human experience, I think. But no matter what is for us to control, we must own the identity. You’re a writer if you write. Period. Writing is a lovely way to spend one’s time. Enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy my writing here.

The Vampire Diaries or The Story of How I Lost A Week Of My Life
Yes, that's right-- you! You are all responsible for this. The insane up all night can't sleep can't work can't think obsession of the last week.
GUYS, The Vampire Diaries is AMAZING. I totally went on a TV bender. I started the series Tuesday and finished today--- 3 season- you do the math (it makes me nauseous to do it myself). A lot of TV. Too much TV. And yet, and yet---
Let me start off by saying I am (obvs) I huge Kevin Williamson fan. Dawson's Creek basically WAS my childhood. But for whatever reason (work. pride) I hadn't seen one single episode of The Vampire Diaries until last week. But you all changed that. You all with your tweets and "Team Damon!" and "best show on television!"and I was all nuh uh. I saw Twilight, okay? I DO NOT CARE ABOUT TEENAGE VAMPIRES. Now please leave me alone so I can write about some. *That was a joke. Everyone calm down.
But then I watched and...hold on. Can we take a moment to discuss how perfect Nina Dobrev's hair is? Like what is she using on that? Can someone tweet her?
Honestly, the show is a lesson in plotting because WTF OMG HOW DID THEY DO THAT???? IT IS A REAL LOVE TRIANGLE. Like freals, no bs, I switched teams, and now I am lost, and I'm going to need a little time to process what just happened because I think someone compelled me-- get it?
Best line of the series: "I don't want to be a vampire!"
Bella, are you out there? Can you hear us?
ANNOUNCEMENT: I know you all luvvvvv Pretty Little Liars. And Revenge. And True Blood (please please please just STOP), but that is my TV limit for the summer. I have had my fill, and now I must diet. No carbs, people. It's time to get serious.
Because you all want me to write another book...right?
Thanks for the vacation. It was a lot of fun.
