Happy New Year


Finally, it is time to say goodbye to 2008. It was a good year, but it seemed to drag on. Now, for the next six months I will think it's January, just as I have for the last... every year since I was born. Don't ask me why this happens, it just does. Maybe it's because the first half of the year goes by too quickly, while the second half seems to take two years to pass.
I have some New Years resolutions for 2009. I don't normally make New Years resolutions, but this year I have some that I fully intend to keep.
  1. Send a query letter to an agent and pray they pick me up.
  2. If #1 works out, get a book published with help from my agent.
  3. If #s 1&2 happen, become the most fan friendly author in existence.
  4. Get in good enough shape to actually do something on my expensive BMX bike.
  5. Finish writing the last two books in B1's series.
  6. Start writing another series.
Those are my New Years resolutions. I will report throughout the year about whether I keep them. Hopefully I will. Have any New Years resolutions of your own? What are they? I'd love to hear some feedback on this.
Happy New Year, everyone!

Something Rotten Chat Recap

The Ally Chat for Something Rotten has just finished, and boy, was it hectic. There were about thirty plus readers asking all sorts of questions, it was a little hard to follow.
Some of my questions got answered, which was way cool. I really can't wait until the next book is announced and then the chat that will follow. I love chatting with authors. Here's one of my questions that got answered:

For Ally and Alan: Would you ever consider posting your query letters for your first books on your blogs?
Alan's answer (I can't remember exactly how it was worded): I've been working on advice for unpublished authors, that's a great idea. (or something along those lines. It was about half an hour ago and I've read a bunch of other things since then, so it's a little fuzzy)


In other news, after visiting the Nelson Literary Agency (Ally Carter's agent) website and reading tips on submitting manuscripts I have decided to start working on my query letter for B1. Orchid is about halfway through reading it, Twenty-One has finished it, Six is yet to start it, and I'm still waiting for my parents to read it.
I was a little nervous about people reading B1, not because there's anything bad in it, I was just afraid they wouldn't like it. Twenty-One seemed to like it a lot, except for the cliff-hanger ending (I love writing cliff-hangers). Orchid seems to be enjoying it.
I now have a printed copy of it, which will make it a lot easier to convince the other three to read it (reading things on the computer is hard on the eyes). It's a lot longer on paper than I thought it would be. I'll try to post some pictures soon.

Well, that's all for now. I have to go play Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution (and work on my query letter).

A Sample of How My Mind Works

You already know my mind is eclectic, now you get a short view of the many wheels spinning in there.

The other night I was online while my sister watched an episode of Dr. Who. I looked up at the TV just in time to see someone attempt to shoot Dr. Who, but their plan was foiled when some girl dove in front and took the shot herself. This got me thinking about how things would have turned out had she not sacrificed herself (even though I think she ended up living in the end). It made me think of how important one person's life could be to other people and how the natural course of things would change if that person died before they were supposed to. As with a few other occasions of strange thought chains, it spawned a new book idea. Weird, I know.

I'd love to tell you more about my new book, but sadly I cannot.

Well, now you know a little bit about my creative process. I'll probably revisit this subject sometime in the future.

Can't Wait for Necropolis

A few days ago I was on Barnes & Noble's website searching my favorite authors to see if there were any new books listed that I hadn't heard about on their personal sites. I think I may have screamed a little when I searched Anthony Horowitz and saw that Necropolis, the fourth book in the super awesome Gatekeepers series, was listed to come out in April. APRIL!!! That's only four months away!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I've been waiting to read Necropolis since I finished reading Raven's Gate. It's really exciting because Necropolis is the first book Anthony Horowitz has ever written where the main character is a girl. Scarlett (the girl in question) played a small role in the last Gatekeepers book, Nightrise. I'm really interested in finding out what her powers are because they haven't been mentioned yet.

"As the fourth novel in the spellbinding Gatekeepers series begins, the world is under the greatest threat it's ever known. The evil corporation Nightrise has amassed an immense amount of power . . . and the devastating force of the Old Ones is about to be unleashed around the globe. To stop this from happening, Matt and three of the Gatekeepers head to Hong Kong--not just the modern city of skyscrapers and wealth, but the secretive underworld beneath. In Hong Kong they will meet the final Gatekeeper, a girl named Scarlet, whose fate is inextricably joined to their own...."
I will definitely be getting Necropolis as soon as it comes out. It would be an understatement to say I'm really, really, really, super excited to read it.
Though I must admit that I prefer the U.K. cover to the American one. Actually, other than Raven's Gate (in hardback), I prefer the U.K. covers for all of them. But then, I'm just picky about things like that.


Update: forgot to mention that I put the American cover above. You can see the U.K. covers for all the books by clicking here.

50, Something Rotten, And An Online Book Club

Hiya people.

Big news. This marks the 50Th post to be published on Dahlia's Eclectic Mind. I'm so happy! It was October 21 when I got my Blogger account and started work on the layout and whatnot for DEM. I remember it like it was yesterday... not really, but it seemed like a good thing to say just then.

Anyway, on to the other topics mentioned in the headline.
Something Rotten by Alan Gratz is based on Hamlet. It's a really fast read. It was available for free online for a while, at which point I read about half of it. I never would have heard of this book without the help of one of my all time fave authors, Ally Carter.
Horatio Wilkes is a very funny character, dropping a sarcastic one liner every third sentence or so. Once I started reading Something Rotten I found myself a little addicted and unable to put it down.

"Denmark, Tennessee, stinks. The smell hits Horatio Wilkes the moment he pulls into town to visit his best friend, Hamilton Prince. And it's not just the paper plant and the polluted river that's stinking up Denmark: Hamilton's father has been poisoned and the killer is still at large. Why? Because nobody believes that Rex Prince was murdered. Nobody except Horatio and Hamilton. Now they need to find the killer, but it won't be easy. It seems like everyone in Denmark is a suspect. Motive, means, opportunity- they all have them. But who among them has committed murder most foul?"

I definitely plan on getting Something Rotten when it is released in paperback in January. I could probably read it again, which I hardly ever do. I really can't wait to read the next Horatio Wilkes Mystery, Something Wicked.

Now, moving on to the third order of business. The online book club.
Wonderful and talented author Ally Carter is starting an online book club. The first book to be discussed is, surprise surprise, Something Rotten by Alan Gratz. The discussion will take place on December 30, 2008. You can find out more here.
I participated in the Test Chat with authors Ally Carter, Alan Gratz, Kelly Parra, and Sara Zarr, and about thirty readers the other day and it was really fun. I loved having the opportunity to ask authors about writing. I'm really looking forward to the book club discussion on the 30.

That's all for now. Happy holidays.

An Instant Holiday Classic

Ah, it's that time of year again. The holidays are just around the corner. I can't wait! It doesn't matter what holiday you celebrate, whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, you are sure to love the Jolly Boots Of Doom song from the Invader Zim episode, The Most Horrible Christmas Ever. In my mind, it's an instant classic. Watch the video below and you'll likely agree.



Starting December 20, in honor of the "Most Horrible Christmas Ever" episode, I will be posting pictures from a horrible Christmas of my own making, which I have titled "The Christmas That Went Wrong In So Many Ways". The series will be ended with a hand drawn Christmas Chibi on Christmas Day.
Happy Holidays readers. I'll be back soon.

I'm Finished! (for now)

I finally finished editing B1 today. Still haven't fixed the mistake with the red car that was black. I'll get to that later. Anyway, here are the stats for B1 pre-edit and post edit:

Pre-edit:
  • 84,666 words
  • 245 pages
  • 60 days to write
Post edit:
  • 84,946 words
  • 245 pages
  • 42 days to edit (probably only a week, but it was spread out a lot)
I'm going to take a break over Christmas and start the second round of editing in January. Hopefully it won't take as long as the first round of editing. People are waiting to read it and they're getting impatient. It shouldn't take too long (I hope).

I'm going to start working on a soundtrack for the book, which I will post here. It will probably be mostly alternative, metal, rock, and classical. Actually, that's probably all it will be. It's really the only music I can stand.

Anyway, I've spent a lot of time reading on the computer recently, so I'm going to end this post here.

WHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!

What have they done to Avatar: The Last Airbender? I was just on Distant Horizon (who got the news from Entertainment Weekly) and I read what could quite possibly be the worst news in the whole wide world (of cartoons).

*deep breath* Okay, as I'm sure you already know there is going to be an Avatar movie, scheduled for 2010. A few months ago they had open casting for Aang (the Avatar, for those of you that haven't seen the show). That was all fine and good. Getting someone new would likely be better for the movie in the end. Look at Harry Potter. Well, according to Distant Horizon the actors who will be playing Sokka (one of my favorite characters) and Katara (eh, not so much) have been chosen.

So, playing Katara is Nicola Peltz (never heard of her) from Deck The Halls (never heard of it). She looks nothing like Katara! The only thing they have in common is that they're both girls!

It.
Gets.
Worse.

Playing Sokka is... Jackson Rathbone. They got a bloody Twilighter to play SOKKA!?! What is wrong with them?!?! Are they... *grr* I'm so mad I can't even think of what to accuse them of being! Whatever it is, it interferes with brain function.

But that's not even the worst of it. Believe it or not, that's only the semi bad news.
Get ready for it. I suggest you sit down for this.

Jesse McCartney is negotiating the role of Prince Zuko. I can't even think of anything to say to that except... WHAT?!?!
(above: Katara, Aang, Zuko (background), Sokka, Momo (lemur). Do you see the madness now?!)

I fear for the Avatar movie. I thought 2010 was going to be a really good year for movies, but it appears I was wrong. *sigh* Why? I knew nothing good could come of M. Night Shyamalan directing the movie.
Again I ask, why?!?!

Editing News

Hey people.
Yesterday I resumed editing the book that will now be known as B1 (book 1). It was while I was somewhere around the fiftieth chapter that I realized I made a mistake earlier in the book and made a car black in one scene when it is red every other time it is mentioned. For some strange reason, I have yet to change that mistake.

Anyway, I have now read 69 chapters (short chapters) and I still don't hate it. I feel that there may be more emphasis on two of the characters relationship than I intended but things always seem sissier to me than they really are (I very much dislike sissy things). I think I have added over 200 words on forgotten words alone. Not very surprising since my mind tends to move faster than my fingers (mind you, my fingers aren't very slow).

As soon as I finish this post I'm likely to go back and edit the rest of the book. I think I'm over 2/3 of the way done, so I should be able to finish by tonight. After I finish editing it once, I'm going to read through it again just to make sure I didn't miss anything I wanted to change before I hand it over to my best friend (with much fighting involved).

Story wise, it seems to progress fairly well. Like I said in a past post, I thought it took too long to get going when I was writing it, but I was wrong there. It doesn't appear to slow down much (in my mind, anyway), so I don't think readers will lose interest too easily. I think I've managed to give the characters their own voices. Each chapter is narrated by a different character and I managed to change my writing style for each person just enough that they all sound different (some notice how people look more, others notice the scenery more, some use a bunch of references to get their point across, etc., etc.).

So, yeah, that's how the whole editing thing has been going. I'll try to write about something more interesting in my next post.

Really Awesome Series...

So why did it take me so long to finish? I don't really know either.
Anyway, I started reading the Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld earlier this year. I finished the first two books quickly, unable to put them down, but for some reason it took me months to finish the third one. It was really good! I wish there were a fourth book! I don't want the series to be over!


"The five teenage Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma, thought they understood the secret midnight hour—until one morning when time freezes in the middle of the day.
The noise of school stops. Cheerleaders are frozen in midair. Everything is the haunted blue color of the midnight hour.
As the Midnighters scramble for answers, they discover that the walls between the secret hour and real time are crumbling. Soon the dark creatures will break through to feed at last . . . unless these five teenagers can find a way to stop them."


Dess is definitely my favorite character. The sarcastic ones tend to be my faves, I love sarcasm (I did list it as one of my interests). If I had the choice, I would want either Dess's or Jonathan's powers (though only if they weren't restricted to midnight, on Jonathan's that is). Before finishing the book (even though I already knew how it ended) I wasn't really sure there could be a fourth Midnighters book. But now that I've read it all for myself I totally see the possibilities. But it could end up not being as good as the first three since the series has been declared over by the author. You can't force a story out of someone if it's not meant to be (wow, did that sound as lame to you as it did to me?).

Anyway, I've said all I can about the book without giving anything away. I suggest that you check out the Midnighters series. It's really good. Also be sure to check out Scott Westerfeld's other YA series, Uglies.

It's a Guitar Hero Miracle!

What's the miracle, you ask? I'll tell you! No I won't, I just like teasing you (kidding). :D

Guitar Hero: On Tour came out this summer and I was really excited about it, but I was worried that the Guitar Grip wouldn't fit my old DS model. I was right, but wrong at the same time. So, here's the part about the miracle...

GUITAR HERO: ON TOUR COMES WITH AN EXTENSION FOR THE ORIGINAL DS!!! I was so happy when I found that out. I had been holding off on getting it since it came out, but my friend recently got one which is how I found out about the extension.

I looked everywhere online for more details about the game, but I couldn't find any information about whether or not it fit the older DS. The extension is really easy to install, according to the instruction booklet. All you have to do is undo two little screws, change the cartridge pack, and put the screws back in.

(left to right: Nintendo DS Lite, Guitar Hero: On Tour guitar grip with extension, orginal Nintendo DS)
So, if you have an original DS and want Guitar Hero: On Tour, go get it. This is excellent news for old DS-ers as GHOT is a really fun game. To get a full list of songs for the game, click here.
Trust me on this, Guitar Hero: On Tour is well worth the money and I recommend it to all gamers.

Free Rice, Free Kibble, Free Kibble Kat...

What about free chocolate? Just kidding.

FreeRice.com, FreeKibble.com, and FreeKibbleKat.com are awesome sites for donating food to people and animals who need it.

I personally like Free Rice the most. It has a bunch of different trivia games, and every correct answer donates more rice to the United Nations World Food Program. There are games for vocabulary, art, language, math, and geography. It's really fun, somewhat addictive, and for a good cause. What more could a person ask for?

Free Kibble and Free Kibble Kat have a daily trivia question. Answering the question correctly will donate kibble and cat food for cute, fuzzy, adorable, hungry animals in shelters. These too are very good sites.

I shouldn't have to write anymore about these sites to get you to visit them. In fact, I don't even know why you are still reading this. You should be donating rice and kibble. Get going! Shoo!

Searching For New Authors?

I don't know about you, but I always have trouble with this. It's mostly due to my extreme pickiness (I practically redefined the word). I recently discovered a website (with help from Meg's Diary) that is specifically made for finding new authors based on the ones you already like.

So, after you've read every book by your favorite author a million times, head on over to Literature Map and see who they recommend. Unfortunately, the site doesn't have any info on the authors so you'll have to search their books on another site, like Barnes & Noble or Borders.

Well, that's about it for now. I'll see you next time with something new (to this blog) and (somewhat) interesting.



P.S.
Click the days on the Christmas Calendar. I won't tell you why, just click them. XD

Hello Editing, My Old Frienemy

I just realized that it's been weeks since I did any editing on my book. Unfortunately, editing means staring at the computer for (possible) hours at a time, which makes my eyes burn to the point of me wanting to claw them out of my own head (sorry you had to hear that). Also, I lack a computer of my own so I have to use my Dad's laptop, which is in high demand at my house so getting a few undisturbed hours on it is hard.

But I can't keep putting off editing. The parental units grow impatient. I think my friends are getting kind of impatient too. I promised all mentioned parties that they could read my book after I finished editing it. But then, my editless streak wasn't entirely due to procrastination. For a while now I actually haven't been able to edit my book (okay, I could but it would be more tedious than before).

While editing my book earlier in the month, I kept a small piece of paper at hand to act as a bookmark. I know you can't put a bookmark in a Word document, I just used it to write down the chapter I was supposed to start on the next time I edited the book. Sadly, that paper was lost and I now have no idea where I left off. It's quite upsetting because I got pretty far.

Oh, whatever. I'll figure something out... or just scroll through the book until things start looking unedited again. I suppose I'll bring this rant to an end and bid you adieu.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey everyone. Today's Thanksgiving which means I will be spending the first half of the day watching the Macy's Day Parade and helping my family prepare the annual feast (I say "helping" because I'm not that good at cooking), and the second part of the day will be spent eating disgusting amounts of said feast.

Anyway, just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I can't wait to eat some rolls and pumpkin pie (they're my favorites).

My Eyes Burn

Ugh, I've been staring at the computer for hours. Luckily, I'm doing more than staring. I'm writing. I've been working tirelessly for at least six or seven hours trying to boost my word count. I'm finally in the 6,000s! Not very far in, but I'm in! Darkened Daylight (my NaNo book) picks up a lot sooner than my vampire book (still debating whether it's safe to put the title online).

The physical aspect of writing has been kind of slow because my wrist hurts and I've been wearing a brace since yesterday. The plastic piece in the brace that keeps my wrist from moving also keeps my hand from touching the laptop I've been using to write my book. With the brace induced lack of mobility in my hand and the way it slides around when I type, it reminds me of the robot hand in the doll grab machines. Weird, huh?
Not only that, but my shoulder has been getting kind of tired either from the position of my arm or the fact that my arm moves a lot more than it did without the brace making my hand slide around.

You know, my ears kind of hurt too. I can't write in silence and I haven't been writing in my room so I've had my iPod on almost all day. But I love music so much, I'd rather suffer through the pain than go without it.

Anyway, enough about pain and such. I didn't get a blog just so I could complain about stuff (lucky for you, because I'm an expert at complaining).

Hmm, now that I'm done complaining, I can't think of anything else to post about. Don't worry, I'll have something better next time. So long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, goodbye.
(That ^ does not look how it sounds)

(hehe, little Sound Of Music reference)

NaNo Update and Some Stuff About My Book

I have finally gotten past my writers block. I now have over 3,000 words in my NaNo book. I know I'm way behind schedule (not that I really have a schedule), but I think it's coming along nicely (quality wise). The beginning is a little slow, but I can't really help that. I've never really been good at starting books, but I must say I'm pretty good at middles and ends. I have this obsession with epic cliffhangers.


As for editing, I took a break for a few days and just started back day before yesterday. I got through 36 chapters with minimal changes and very little hatred for what I was reading. While I was writing I felt like it took too long to get going and worried that readers would lose interest before they got to the good parts, but now I'm not so sure. It really starts to pick up when the two opposing groups meet in early chapters. There's an evil B trying to overthrow her "best friend" and claim all the power for herself. Remember how I said my book is about vampires? Well, you're about to find out a little more. You should feel honored, I don't do this often. I hardly even talk about my books outside of my house (walls have ears and all that).


Okay, so the group of hunters have just found out that the ancient and super powerful vampires that their families have been hunting for generations are going to their school. The hunters believe that the vampires are evil, but they're not. Not only have they realized that the vampires are really close by, but one vampire and one hunter are friends and the other hunters don't know how to tell him, or even if they should.


Well, that's all I'm going to tell you right now. Just know that if you steal my ideas I will be completely devastated and could lose all desire to ever write anything again.

Have a nice day! :D

Eek, editing! Wait, this isn't so bad

Well, it took me two more days to start than I originally planned, but I have finally done it... or at least started it. Yep, I have right now, at this very moment, officially edited 11 chapters of my book. Keep in mind that these are short, Maximum Ride length chapters, but still, I managed to read 11 chapters of a book I wrote without pulling my hair out, screaming, crying, or swearing (which I never do, by the way).
I'm surprised, and happy, to say that I actually kind of like it... so far. I'm likely to come across something I hate soon. It's inevitable. I mean, me liking every part of a book I wrote would likely trigger the apocalypse. In fact, I can think of at least five parts off the top of my head that I plan on changing. But I'll leave those for another time. Right now, I'm in a fairly good mood and I don't feel like ruining it.
So, for all you writers out there, fear not. Last time I questioned whether it was possible for a writer to like anything they wrote, and now I know better. I actually laughed at my own work! I read something I wrote, and it made me happy!
I think a lot of it had to with the fact that I talked about my book with my friend while I was writing it. And you know what? She seemed excited to read it! Let me tell you, having someone who wants to read your book out of more than just curiosity can really help. It helps more if you give them an excerpt, whether it just be a verbal retelling or a printed out sample, and they still want to read it. But be sure that whoever you talk to about your book is into the story. You won't be doing yourself any favors by talking about, say, a sci-fi book with someone who's not interested in sci-fi.
Today's lesson is pretty much, find your target audience and don't condemn your book before reading it. After you finish writing, wait a month or so before going back to read it. Give yourself time to forget exactly how you worded everything so it seems less like your reading something you wrote and more like your rereading your favorite book for the millionth time.
That's really all the advice I can offer you for now. I'll be back soon with more Tales of Editing and maybe some more writing advice, though I'm not making any promises on the latter.

NaNoWriMo

Today marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I've just joined and I'm still debating which book I'm going to write. I'm thinking of writing the beginning of one of my two series based in the distant future. It saves me a lot of time on research because I get to make everything up, and if there's one thing I'm good at, it's making things up.
I really can't decide which one to write. One of them is a three part series, the other is a two. Also, they're connected. The three part-er is the prequel to the two part-er. Both of them are going to be written from multiple POV's. As with the book I've already finished, I can't tell you everything for legal reasons. But based on the information you have, which one do you think I should write?
Please leave a comment with your thoughts on the subject. :D
Learn more about NaNoWriMo here.

p.s.
I'm a horrible procrastinator and haven't even started editing my book.

And So It Begins

So, today marks the beginning of Operation: Edit. That means that I will be hold up in my office (my room), toiling away on my computer (my dad's laptop), while trying not to rip my hair out (that's going to be hard). If you live anywhere in the United States and you hear someone screaming "I hate everyhting! No one will ever want to publish this! I'll never write agian!" that's just me. I haven't been able to stop thinking about my book since I finished the first draft, and so far all I've wanted to do is change everything. Not exactly the signs of a bestseller... or a seller, for that matter.

Anyway, let's pause that tangent for a few seconds and talk about something else, like foreign languages.
I recently found a really cool translation website. You can translate (almost) any English sentence into Latin, French, German, Russian, Spanish, ect., ect. I personally like translating things into Latin. You can check it out here.

So, hope you have fun with the online translater! Just know that while you're doing that, I'll be sitting in front of a computer reading things that I could never love because they are from my own mind. Seriously, is it possible for a writer to not hate everything they write? If there are any writers reading this, I fully expect feedback on that question. (please note that it may take longer for comments to be posted while I'm editing)

Welcome to My Blog!!!

Ah, my first blog. It tastes just like I dreamt it would. :)
Okay, so you're probably wondering what this blog is about, so I'll explain.
My blog is about EVERYTHING! Well, everything I find interesting anyway. I hope you find it interesting too!
Here's a short list of things I'm interested in:
writing
reading
comics
video games
certain movies (I'm so picky)
music

The list will grow in the future, but until then I think that's good.
Hope you enjoy my blog!
