It's high time I revisit one of Jane Austen's books (I don't remember when was the last time I read one), and as for "Emma", while I am very much fond of it, I do not think that I have read it above two times. How shocking indeed! Therefore, I am quite excited that there will be Emma Group Read in March! I have been meaning to read a Jane Austen novel for some time now but I couldn't decide which one. I have alreay read the first eight chapters and I can't wait for the discussion!

Woohoo! I have the blurb! And I'm quite happy with it - for now:)) But the month is not up yet, so I can't go back to the book until it is. I've been thinking about it a lot, though, and I have unearthed new bits that I can't wait to put in. I'm also reading "A Writer's Guide to Harry Potter; How to Improve Your Writing by Studying the Bestselling Series" by S.P. Sipal and it is extremely inspirational. It makes my brain work in ways and directions I haven't thought of before, new ideas keep bursting and exploding in my brain and there are techniques that I can't wait to try once I begin revision! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the Harry Potter series and who also happens to be a writer.

I've been wondering if it's wise to start something new and completely different at the moment. I've been thinking about certain things that I should insert, delete or change during the revision time (I can't wait to begin!) and I decided that I'd better remain where I am. So, today I've started making a list of agents I'd like to submit the novel to as well as working on the blurb - short and tricky things they are!

I have several ideas for short, novella-length stories, but the problem is that I don't have the names for the characters and the places, that I'm really happy with; and, until I am, I cannot begin to work on either of them. I need to know the names and I need to like the way they sound and look for the story to flow...
