Here’s a clip I cut out from ‘Tide of Life.’ I think my heart nearly jumped out of me when I saw James Purefoy appear on scene. Whew.
Anyway! Hmmm, did anything interesting happen today? YES. I was at the library talking with Penny (the librarian) asking how she liked the following two chapters of TRC I’d printed out for her. She told me she really enjoyed it. Then I walked over to the paperback section and browsed through the books. Picked up a Harlequin-esque novel, thought again, and put it away, sticking to my resolve to branch out of the no-brainer romance department. Then Hamza and his friend came up to me. To my surprise, he tells how much he enjoyed reading TRC (the one I posted in Authonomy), and I was just like…Hold on, you’re a guy, and you enjoyed my romance story? I thought TRC would only be read by the female population, but the fact that it can also be enjoyed by the opposite gender, was so encouraging to me. If you read this entry someday, Hamza, thanks so much for all your compliments! It gave me more confidence in TRC. I can’t wait to get this published so I can give you a copy. That way you don’t have to hurt your eyes by reading the chapters on the screen!
Now, let me try to talk (write?) about something other than my own story (seriously, I’m sorry, but writing is all I think about). Oh, I know, I’m going to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) tomorrow!!!!!!….Again!!!!! It’s for history class and we’ll be going to a lab to do…something…related to the Industrial Revolution.
Oh, and today, I went on a schoo trip to the movie theatres. We watched a movie called “War Child.” It was great. Go watch it. You guys should spare 5 minutes of your time and call 1–800-436-6243 (GENOCID) and tell them you want Canada to help stop the genocide going on in Darfur. Ok? Good.

Goodness, I just read Chapter 7 on Authonomy – ah, that darn necklace. I remember it well (grr, Cecelia is a devilish girl). Lucas gave Amanda a HANKY! That’s so adorable! Sigh…just lovely.
I never really took long, hard notice of Isabelle. I knew she was a really good and faithful friend to Amanda, but I never knew *how* good she was. I reckon she is the most likeable character in the story – she’s smart and loyal, and can even be funny at times, especially when she condesceneds her brother. 😀 I’m awaiting her love-interest – but for all my contemplation, I can’t remember the man’s name. Ergh.
Thank you for reading and reviewing my X story, I feel very honoured by Your Awesomeness. As it is, I’m in the middle of writing chapter five (but I’m not faring to well). I have chronic block.
Love and magic,
The male species is a suprising bunch. Go Hamza.
Yea, Lucas gave her a hanky..how very considerate of him, after barking at her as he did.
I’m glad you consider Isabelle to be the most likeable character. I guess, because I haven’t invested so much of my time in her, she is somewhat close to being perfect. If I had focused on her, she’d be monstrously flawed like Lucas and Amanda haha. And the man she later falls for is “Raphael” a.k.a “Raphe” But I’ve altered their story a bit. Hopefully for the best.
Damn, you have a writer’s block? You should write an outline for your entire book, that way you’re less liable to getting a block.
