So Sorry!

Goodness Gracious guys I’m so sorry! I know I completely dropped the ball with this whole blogging thing and I’m sorry about that.

I think I’m going to have to start cutting stuff back.

The one thing I was thinking about…

Writing Play Lists

There’s this idea out there to make Writing Playlists to go along with the manuscript that is being written. Every few days I hear about another author who made a writing playlist for fantasy stories, murder mystery stories, and the like. I’m wondering if there’s really something to this whole Writing Playlist thing.

I’ve tried to make a writing playlist for my previous manuscripts. I tried to…

Wedding!

images mI have eight months until I become Mrs. Andrew Iacona. Eight months. That seems like a long time but it really isn’t. Anyone who’s planning a wedding knows that it isn’t actually a long time. Thankfully, I’ve been on top of everything when it comes to wedding planning.

So far I have the church, hall, favors, the band, the photographer, and the videographer. Oh and the flowers, I got the flowers…

She sat on her bed, alone, with only her iPod to keep her company. It had been three months of the same thing; sitting on her bed, not moving, not living. Her legs stretched out before her; long graceful legs of a dancer. Well former dancer now. Her legs were now useless; two ten pound stumps that hung there pathetically. I’m patheticshe…

I Can’t Help It! I’m Happy!

I Can’t Help It! I’m Happy!

[cincopa A4HAnhbATknu]

This isn’t one of my favorite songs but it kind of works with how I’m feeling right now. I’m just genuinely happy right now. And excited too. Only two days ago I was stressed, worrying about things and harping over the future. I felt cooped up, aggravated, and basically felt like crap. I didn’t know what I was doing or where I was going. But in two days, things changed. I’m…

Character References

Yep, I finally did it. I read over a book a week all of the past year.
