I think I have found the point where my brain is literally TOO full of stuff. I am thinking of SO many different things today.

I tried to work on Project 3 last night, only to realize that I didn't have any pretty colored pens, and apparently I canNOT edit without colorful pens. (Who knew?) So that had to wait until this morning, when I not only found colorful pens, but ones that the ink sparkles! (Lily of the Purgatorians already won the prize for first Twilight joke there) On my lunch break, I got through about 7 chapters, just re-reading it. And I still love it. That makes me happy.

HOWEVER, my main focus is Project 2 (I think I'll abbreviate it DD now that I have a title) and Son of DD. To that end, I talked briefly with my editor yesterday, and she'll have notes for me in a couple of weeks. I'm so looking forward to seeing what she wants me to do! It sounds like the changes will be mostly cosmetic (no rodeo clowns or space ninjas).

And I spent 45 minutes on the phone with The Agent today, hashing out things on the Son of DD. I told him the outline and chapters that I sent him were rough (as in, bare bones type of stuff). He brought up good points, I have ideas percolating... We'll see where it takes me.

It feels good to be creating again. There's a high in watching something unfold in my head that wasn't there before.

Oh, and Apple Chai Infusions from Starbucks may be the best things ever. Just sayin'...

See, I'm just working on 8 or 9 things that are from the "Let's make a website pretty" school.

How about sparkly space vampire ninjas. Need another Twilight reference.
