Supernatural Author

Fall is the busiest time of the year for my family, so I apologize for the lack of posts! Between football, volleyball, dance, tae kwon do, confirmation, harvest, homecoming, and a million other things I won't bore you with, I've been crazy busy working on getting the sequel to The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life out. The cover is ALMOST officially ready to be released (stay tuned!), first draft is off to the editor, and the trailer is done. As soon as winter arrives, I'll be ready to take a day or two off. And by that I mean a girls' trip to New York City in which I'm sure we'll walk a few hundred miles and get very little sleep. Did I mention I have ADD and seriously don't know how to sit still?

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to get through the Supernatural series with my daily workouts (sometimes seeing Sam shirtless is all the motivation a girl needs). Yesterday I watched episode 18 of season 4 (how many freaking episodes can they pack into a season???) in which the Winchester brothers meet an author who just happens to be chronicling their lives, word for word. I especially enjoyed this one as the poor author was freaked out, thinking everything he was writing was coming to life. At one point he stated something like, "I'm like a god. A really sick one." Okay so that wasn't an exact quote, but you get the idea.

It was pretty amusing to consider the possibility as an author, then it suddenly started to freak me out a little. If my books were to come to life, I would also be considered a bit sick, sadistic even. I would be responsible for hundreds of deaths! Then I remembered it's fiction, and told myself to chillax. Still, there were some amusing stereotypes of authors involved (guy in his robe, drinking all day long), and even a slam to M. Night Shyamalan that irritated me a bit as I happen to be a big fan. But this was probably my favorite episode to date, mostly because it hit home. If you're into anything paranormal and haven't watched Supernatural, I suggest you jump on Netflix and give it a try. If nothing else, Sam and Dean are certainly easy on the eyes.

Looking forward to a month filled with horror movie marathons, Halloween parties and best of all, NEW EPISODES OF THE WALKING DEAD!

I decided a long time ago if my characters came to life there will a big group who won't like me. Like Lord Brinn in my upcoming novella, all I'll say is it can be brutal being a leader in my book. What a coincidence I watched an episode from Season 7 this morning on TNT that I had missed the first time around. Right now I'm typing away at the library but I'm glad you're trying to fit in some Supernatural time. It's an amazing show. Do you watch Revolution, L&O: SVU or Arrow? Yeah I'm a nighttime tv series junkie, in the daytime I barely watch anything at all but I do try to go to bed 10pm the latest. Oh and don't hate being busy that means you can beat boredom out the room. Trust me, boredom sucks.

I tried Revolution and wasn't able to get into it, stopped watching SVU when Stabler left, and haven't seen Arrow. I have a giant list of TV shows I want to watch at night, but never have time for very many as I usually fall asleep sometime between 11-12. Only time I watch TV in the daytime is when I'm on the elliptical. ;)

Love Supernatural. Been a fan since the first episode. New season begins Oct. 8th.

I love the fact that Sam and Dean's life has been chronicled now and that they're in electronic format also, so they can never be erased. Ha! Bring on the new season.

Working out to Supernatural is a great idea!
