an update

So grandma gets out of the hospital today supposedly. They would be sending her to a physical rehab facility which after her injuries and three weeks of being bed ridden makes sense. I still feel an occassional desire to strangle my aunt for seeing the worst in everything.

Went to see world trade center with my mom last night. I am still deciding what I think about this movie. There were portions of it I liked and portions I was underwhelmed by. One thing I did like is it very much showed how we all were that day. We all sat watching. we would all check multiple channels and multiple websites. Anything to get more information. The movie showed that well. Sadly though in the end it lacked the emotional weight I think something like this should have had. The thing is the acting was not bad. The story was a real and powerful story but it just lacked something.

Mom is staying over another week. Partly because grandma is asking her to and partly because the concern over the fact she was scheduled to fly back the day the bad men were planning on blowing up the planes with gatorade. I think the stress of dealing with grandma, my crazy aunt, and my cantankerous grandfather is begining to wear on my mom. Dealing with me cant be helping much either. Heh.

So I am begining to try and come up with an idea of what I want to do this year for my attempt at national novel writing month. I keep coming up with ideas that will require a lot of research like a (mystery set in current post Katrina New Orleans) or something to personal (a story loosely based on what I went through when my father died). I will come up with something. Maybe I will go back to old ideas. I wroter a couple of inplay letters last night and I will probably send them tonight when I go home.

Um ok thats it for updates at the moment. Hope everyone has a good day.

Re: Novel Writing
well I tried it last year and never finished. I hit my two chapter limit and stopped. I plan on doing well more prep work this year like doing an outline for instance.
