“A Year from Now You May Wish You Had Started Today” -Karen Lamb

Hey internet,

Sorry I’ve been gone for a while. I had to move back home, I know, I know. Sounds sad, but I need to do it, so I can afford to go back to school. I’ve also been slacking in writing, which kills me, because I don’t want to stop the roll we were on. So, I’m getting back into the groove of things as soon as I can, Fam Jam has been wanting me to spend time with them the past few days, but I’ve been brainstorming where I need to go with the story. Where it’s going to end up. All the while putting a bedroom and a living area together with the few pieces of furniture I own. I really need to get a couch or something. Maybe a nice armchair.

This is something I’ve needed to do for a long time. books have been my life, and I feel that I need to give back to everything that has opened my mind to what has brought me to where I am today. It’s going to be a long process, I know there will be times that I can’t or I don’t want to tell this story. But, I will always come back to it. Knowing, one year from now I’ll wish I had started today.

Thanks for reading.

Eric

Well, chapter 2 has been done for a day or so. Eric and I had a very productive meeting over the chapter and what is to become of our book. We really have our differences in thoughts and ideas, we can go back and forth a million times until we do have that same singular agreement and thoughts. Once we get on the same path of agreement, we find it easier to branch out from there. We have been MIA from the blog scene for a bit so I’d thought I’d stop by and say hello.

I am sure you noticed our lack of posts. We kind of hit a bit of a writing rut and have been dealing with real life problems outside of our fantasy nerd world. Hopefully getting back on track will be easily done. We are two chapters in and excited and anxious to finish our first collaborative masterpiece. Even if just one person reads our story, it will be an amazing experience for us.

On a side note, I am a Bronze League player in League of Legends. I cannot get out of bronze no matter how hard I try, how good I am, it never fails that I am matched up with people who throw the game because “my mom hit the router” “GG they got first blood AFK in base” “OMG ::insert random laner here:: just took my kill, report them” .. I could go on about the plagued matches I have had. It really made me think that I should lay off the games until kids are back in school… Or have one of my friends carry me XD.

The most important thing I need to remember is NOT TO GIVE UP!! I told myself I will make it to silver league. I will keep trying! Just like with writing, when words will not come out – I will force them out. What comes out may be twisted, trashy, and worth nothing… but to me if I can make something come out it will jump start my creative energy again.  We will finish this book because we said we would. Even if the result is garbage – the lesson we learn will carry us into our next projects.

Love,

NessP.S. Eric is camping for the weekend, he most likely will get eaten by a bear or moose while taken a bathroom break, drunk, in the wilderness of Canada. We will all say a prayer for our lost fellow Nerd. Updates when this happens.

Just stopping in for a quick post. I have a lot on my plate today. I have to squeeze in laundry, dishes, writing, cooking dinner, and playing Last of Us. I am hooked on that game. But seriously, who has time to do all that stuff and not get sidetracked?

Good thing I have a slow cooker – set it and forget it. I am still a novice at cooking but put a recipe in my hand and I become Betty Crocker. I can follow directions, I even love pictures. Tonight’s kitchen boss battle is: Lemon Chicken. I am the master (according to my boyfriend, Mike) of fried hot wings. So more chicken? Shouldn’t be too hard. My friend, Google, helped me find this recipe:

A beautifully and tasty looking little recipe. The pictures help you so you can follow along by picture, without even reading the text. I am really excited about this recipe. I will be assembling it shortly. My side dishes will be steamed broccoli and roasted garlic potatoes.

Food has always been a passion of mine. I love great tasting food and I will try anything that looks and smells like a piece of heaven. Now, I will eat my BLT and start some laundry and do the dishes while waiting patiently on dinner.

Love,

Ness
P.S. Our first chapter is done. I finished reading what Eric wrote last night. It is FANTASTIC. A strong start! Chapter 2, here I come!

Quick post! This has been a hectic weekend.
Firstly, I would like to thank Plotting Bunnies! (http://plottingbunnies.wordpress.com/) for nominating us for the Liebster Award! I am in the process of collaborating with Eric on a post with our answers, questions, and nominees! Thank you so much for your support and interest in our blog!
Secondly,  I have received from my lovely boyfriend a gift! It is in the form of a PS3 game “The Last of Us’. I have only played for a couple hours but I am instantly drawn in. I have to beat this. Especially considering the subject is close to what Eric and I are writing about! I guess I can consider this research instead of procrastination…. but it is what it is! Please, do expect a nice little review of the game once I finish!
Stay tuned! With the first chapter penned out courtesy of Eric, once we get it in type form…. the second chapter is next!
Love,
Ness
P.S Sorry again for the short post! We didn’t forget about you wordpress!
