Stress Levels Rising

Yes, my stress levels are rising. And yes, it’s because of the wedding.

All the talk about it is just making me want to sit and write a new novel or edit “Unexpected Moments” because when I’m in those worlds I’m not in this one.


Because those are worlds where I can control everything. At least, almost everything. There are obviously things I can’t control because I have my reasons for that, but anyway…

Even with things coming up I’m going to be putting more focus on my writing. I have a three-day weekend for once. I don’t often get these!

I’m still on a Stephen King binge. Currently reading The Dark Half. It’s an awesome story about a writer who writes under his own name, but not very much, and also under a pen name which takes off like a rocket. Eventually things happen that make him come out as the author un28251808der both names and then… Mysterious murders start happening. Did his pen name take on a life of it’s own outside of Thad?

I’m really enjoying this book. Not sure if it’s because it’s about a writer or what, but I’m

enjoying it. The
story is gripping and it keeps you wanting to turn to the next page and read the next chapter. There are slow parts, but that’s given in a novel this length.

That’s given in just about ANY novel.

It’s also creepy. Not so creepy as I can’t read it before bed, but it’s nice and creepy. The characters are awesome and if you’re looking for more about Pangborn from Needful Things then this is the right book. He plays in this one too. And yes, I’m reading King’s works so randomly that it’s taking me to looking things up about other works because I haven’t read them and he’s referencing them. Just simple, quick Google searches is all.

Well, I’m off to get some work done. Hopefully I can enjoy this gorgeous weather and a nice, relaxing day off. Hoping for a number of other things as well, but we’ll see if that’s actually going to happen…

    Hopefully, when you have those days off you take the time to relax a little and focus on yourself for a change. Weddings are always stressful.

    I think I may have seen the movie the Dark Half before, but it was such a long time ago I can’t remember all of it. I’ve read quite a bit of Stephen King’s books. He has so many, I haven’t been able to read them all.

    Take care hon and happy reading! ^__^
