Happy New Year!

I have a feeling this year will be a good one. Not only will I graduate, but I'm going into 2012 having edited my book to the best of my ability! And I must say, for the first time in a long time, I'm very, very satisfied with it!

Something things that I got for Christmas:

1. A kindle!! I love it! <3 Aladdin got it for me after I talked forever about wanting one! I downloaded a ton of classics and that's all I've been reading, really. LOL! I cannot wait to get more and more books. I'm just going to read all the time!

2. I got straight A's!!!
This was a huge surprise and I'm so happy to end the first semester of my Senior year with a 4.0, let's see if I can do it in my second semester! :D

As I said, I am pretty much finished with my edits of CUTLASS. Now, I just have to wait for some other feedback. It is 115, 886 words (a HUGE cut!). I delete so many things I just couldn't let go of before, but I think it is a better novel! I cannot wait to begin work on FLINTLOCK! Well, it's already finished, I just have to edit! Then I can completely rewrite CANNON. YAY TRILOGY!

hehe. Okay, okay!
I'm finished for now.
I am very sorry everyone! I have no wifi or internet at home, but I'll be back t school soon! I also found a temp job, so I'll be working at the University Bookstore until February. Hopefully I'll find something that will work around my schedule!

Love,

Ashley

  6. That's what I found too; lot of classics in Kindle format for free download on Amazon. I don't have a real Kindle gadget, but I do have a reader on my travel-size laptop >:)
