First problem: I haven’t finished writing the script
Second: I haven’t really started studying yet (for my exams)
Third: Filming the movie might not be easy. Why? Oh, because I have no idea if the ACTRESSES are going to be available for filming. The only day we can film is next Friday, between 4 p.m. and… 11 p.m.?
Fourth: The best person for hair and make-up is unavailable.
Fifth: I can’t think of anything else, but I’m sure there’s SOME other problem.
Moving on to novel-related problems: I’m not going to be able to meet my deadline. Not a huge problem, but I wanted to have a first draft to show my best friends the 17th of July. Also, I’ve been stuck on the same damn scene for a couple of days now…
Let’s see, what else is wrong? Oh yeah: I have to take my exams the 30th of June and the 1st of July. Here’s the weather forecast for those two days:
(The degrees are in Celsius)
30th: 32 max and 20 min
1st: 32 max and 21 min
My brain is already unable to focus. (Which is why I haven’t really started studying.)
Hopefully the exams really are as easy as everyone claims they are. If they are, all I need is 16 out of 40 on each exam to pass. But I’m aiming for at LEAST a 20 out of 40.
At the moment I’m reading PREY by Rachel Vincent. I got the book yesterday, when I woke up. It was on the end of my bed and I accidentally kicked it off my bed. I didn’t know it was there. A few minutes later, I got up. I saw under my bed a book. It was face-down. I thought it was PRIDE, the third book in the Shifter series. I picked it up, turned it around and saw that it was in fact PREY!
Immediately, I started screaming with joy. I ran downstairs asking where my dad was. He usually buys me books. My mom told me he was out and that anyway SHE ordered the book. I then hugged her, very very tightly, and she said maybe it was a mistake to give me the book when I should be studying for exams. I ran away with said book and began reading.
Now I’m on page 126, a day and a half later. Now normally I’m not a slow-reader — I should be on page 200 and something — but I think it’s the heat… Most of the time, the words and sentences don’t even make sense. But so far I’m LOVING IT.
I recommend this series to anyone who’s a) mature enough (it’s not a YA series), b) loves action and werecats, c) doesn’t mind blood (not for the faint of heart), and d) is a female (it’s told from the point of view of a 23-year-old woman called Faythe).
In STRAY, the first book, Faythe is immature, kind of still teen-like. By PREY she’s matured a lot.
Go ahead, buy it!
Also a good series, this time YA with vampires: Vampire Academy. Here’s the first book: http://www.amazon.com/Vampire-Academy-Book/dp/159514174X/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2
This series is about 17-year-old Rose, a strong, stubborn, immature dhampir, who also grows and matures as the series progresses. It’s by far the BEST vampire series out there. I very highly recommend it.
