Christmas Break :)

I'm only 100 pages into The Legend of Holly Claus, but I can say that 2 pages into it I was already completely and utterly fascinated.  And now I am learning things from it - things that may someday apply to my own writing, and things that I can apply now.

Oh, and speaking of my writing...  Something really lame just happened.  I'd been waiting to finish writing this one scene for three months (while I was in musical theater).  When I finally got down to do it, it turned out really well.  BUT....I forgot to save the new THIRTY PAGES onto the computer in case something happened to the flashdrive.  Well...  Great time for something to go wrong.  The other day I set up my flashdrive and was ready to start a new scene and all the content was lost.      So.......I have to write those 30 pages over again.  :/

But on a happier note, I've slowed down in my reading.  At the moment, I am only reading ONE BOOK.  Just one.  Thank you Jesus.  It's been a long time since I've wanted to or been able to, with school and all.  But Holly Claus has done the trick, and I want to just enjoy it, without anything else getting in the way, without any other stories combined.  It's a good feeling, and I hope to keep this up for a while, at least in my pleasure reads.

For now I'm going to go work on other reviews and also, of course, reading Holly Claus.  From what I'm feeling right now about the story and the writing and whatnot, it may end up being one of my all time favorites.  Brittney Ryan is definitely one talented writer!

Happy reading!! :)
P.S.  I know, I'm not supposed to know my Christmas presents BUT....  Well, my mommy and I worked out that one of the Anthropologie Penguin classics should be the last present she gets me.  So....I'm getting Jane Eyre for Christmas, and I'm probably going to buy The Woman in White for myself.  Ha!  In any case, I'm very excited to have at lesat one of them on my shelf.  10 more days until Christmas!
