Oh lexxie

novel news

I finally broke the two month long writer's block I had going on the second novel. *does happy dance* And it lets me bring in my vampire character and some more of his backstory and lore, which I really wasn't planning to do until the third novel, but I guess I can always expand on what's in here or just create more.

And I spoke to one of the two directors at writing camp. She's willing to read the first novel and critique it for me, plus she has two friends who are fantasy readers/writers she thinks will be willing to help me out and I've got about fifteen other writers coming to camp who I can ask. There are two I really like and am hoping will be willing to help out. They're both high school teachers, a brother and sister, who I've known for three and seven years and really respect as writers and people. Bill is one of the few people I gave a manga to and he opened it correctly the first time around. And Christy is fascinated by fan fiction and now has some of her students writing it in class. I just never mention the slash part of it or read any of my pieces at camp because no one gets them. I learned that lesson the hard way. *sighs*

Finished watching Takumi-kun III. Really great, but the ending gave me bunnies. Original slash bunnies. *headdesk*
