I May Be a Little Hard to Reach for the Next Few Days

I'm busting my rump to finish a little project or two, so I may not be spending much time on the blog this week. (And it may take me longer to respond to any messages that are sent to me.) As always, this will only be temporary!

In the meantime, you might consider studying the hobo signs below. (More here.) Seems like the sort of thing that could come in handy someday.

Okay, this is the third comment I've written on this post... but I just thought of an idea for a story that has to do with the hobo signs. Another contest, Kirsten? :) So, anyway, wouldn't a story that's about, like, a girl today that uses those signs be pretty cool? Must start writing! (see my blog for more story ideas I have come up with- I think of about a thousand a day)
I'm totally obsessing over the fact the the Darkness Dwellers is being finished! Yay!!!!!!
Wow, that was a long post.

Darkness Dwellers. Need I remind you that you promised me an advanced copy when it comes out? xD I'm looking forward to it a lot.

In italics, darn it.

OH MY LLAMA YAY!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, did anyone pull any April Fools Pranks? I got up at 1:00 in the morning, got dressed, put in my contacts, tidied my room, and started to eat my breakfast when my parents heard me. And know the pathetic part? Some part of me thoguht it was actually 6:30. I was peeved when I found out the real time.

Good luck finishing it, Kirsten!!!

First of all, I am so excited about Darkness Dwellers! And secound of all, how was April fools for everyone! My personal opinion is that as long as you never hurt, steal, truly humiliate someone, or do something really distructive or mean, pranks are usaully pretty funny.

I loved the American Girl books! Have you ever been on the website? When I was younger I LOVED it. (come to think of it I still do.) DARKNESS DWELLERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm rather psyched.
