Oh my God. *bursts out laughing*

*laughs* Oh my God. I just found what must have been *very* close to the original first character sketch/getting the feeling thing for the Walker Papers. It’s about 800 words long, and it’s *awful*. oh my *God* it’s bad. *howls with laughter* Yeah, oh my God, created April 17, 2000, at 6:01pm. Oh my God. It’s awful. *laughs more* Here, here, let me share my humiliation with you:

I rewrote two half-chapters and think I’ve gotten the book back on track. The next few chapters will be all-new, with lots of action and a character who hasn’t been seen in a while (nevermind that nobody from the Walker Papers has been seen in a while, since it’s TWO YEARS since I’ve written one!), and … well, we’ll see where it goes tomorrow, I guess.

thank you!

Thank you all for birthday wishes! It was a very nice birthday. Ted got me a couple books and a DVD I wanted, and put them in a very silly bag that sings a birthday song. My sister called me from the fairy tale palace she’s studying at in France, and my dad made me a birthday cake! I literally can’t remember the last time somebody made me a birthday cake. I don’t think it’s been since I got married, so at least 11 years (I love to bake, so…
