Update 5/19/17

i took down WHITE LINES (but left the first chapter for nostalgia...). I didn't give a very fair warning...go ahead and hate me...

i've decided to actively query literary agents to represent me and hopefully get this whole writing thing going and I will be querying with David and Julianne's story. yeah, i know i can just do it the e-book way but my skills at marketing myself are seriously nonexistent, and i am a traditionalist and purist at heart -- i want to be able to hold books in my hands and flip the pages and go back and write notes on the margins (the irony being, i post my writing online now -- yes, i know, ha ha -- who says people can't change though?).

anyway, i believe WL has the most potential to be picked up by somebody even if I want Gospel According to Grace to be what eventually defines my writing "career".

i'd also like to say i have grand plans for the future but that's really my only goal at the moment. seriously. my planner literally says "goal: get an agent!"

i decided also to scrap the wattpad idea after a lengthy internal struggle with myself over "do you want to be known or do you want your writing to be respected" (i'm not implying at all that wattpad authors should not be respected, but the platform does feel like you're constantly pandering to the masses, selling your soul, one word at a time, to anyone willing to grab at it) and it didn't feel like me. but i may put Gospel there because that's one story that should be read by everyone regardless of profit/whatever.

i did start a blog though -- nowhere as great as Julianne's, of course -- but one that i wouldn't mind people reading so, for whatever that's worth, there it is.

for those who saw the previous update (which is this but edited), yeah i changed my blog name. i'm so indecisive sometimes...

Update 3/7/17

recently got a wattpad account. to build readership or something. it'd be nice to get paid for writing but it's also a fantastic way to mess with your head. as i grow older though, the reality of death becomes more and more real and i realize that your life is short here but what you leave behind with your words will always outlast you.

i want my words to outlast me. not that i have anything worthy to say. but i just want to leave something that's worth something else to someone. i guess i'm done being content with that 'someone' just being me.

not really validation, but validation-ish.

you know?

i've also been thinking about posting a follow-up to The Exception (it's already half-written in my head). but now that i've said it, i think i might've just jinxed it...

Sweepers by Minty F reviews
A sweeper is defined as any man that can sweep a woman off of her feet. Instead, Luke Sawyer nearly shoves me to the ground. Either he's a complete jerk, or love just got a whole lot more violent.

The Boy Who Talks to God by Unbridled reviews
Whatever God told him to do, he did. Giving away his shoes, taking punches, befriending outcasts. Even turning his back on love...and on me.

White Lines reviews
David Randall hates what he's become: a famous rock star. But he's fine with that. The fame, the women, the shallowness of it all...Even his hatred for himself, he can accept. So long as he never remembers Sam. In fact, he's perfectly content with settling in that glorious state of indifference for as long as his money can sustain him. Until he reads Jane Bennet's blog. / REMOVED

The Gospel According to Grace reviews
Jeremy Collins is an atheist. Charlie Cohen is a Christian. He bases his life on reason; she bases hers on faith. He needs her to win Battle of the Bands. She needs him to meet God. It's never ideal to fall for someone who believes in a being that likes to be called "God" but it's even worse when it's the same "God" who killed his mother when he was only thirteen.
