Happy Birthday To Me

Yesterday was my birthday; I am 33 years young. Wow. I never thought I would be in my thirties. I got several books that I had been eyeing as well as some tulips from my children and a bamboo plant from my husband. Cacti and bamboo plants are about the only type of plants that I don't end up murdering. I was never bless with a green thumb and my front garden suffers for it. 

I have been writing all week and I feel like I am getting places. I scrapped a big chunk of my book last week and was left with only about 25,000 words. I am now at 46,000 and I feel like it is finally going where I want it to go. 

My book is tentatively called Lifebond, and is a YA fantasy about a girl who finds her soulmate when she least expects it while she tries to get through an incredible amount of personal baggage. As soon as I figure out how to add a playlist I intend to add it to my blog. My husband hates my tasted in music, but I think all of the music I listen to matches the scenes that I write. 

Some of my favourites are James Blunt (who coincidentally shares the exact same birthday with me), Pete Yorn, Damien Rice, Elbow, Grizzly Bear, Blue October and the Killers.
