Someday – someday I tell you – I will be better at updating this blog. Someday….

The title of this post is referring to the fact that I mentioned that I made this Watermelon cake, and that I would post about it – and that’s happened. Of course I made this cake LAST summer which makes it an OLD old post. My bad. At least I think it was summer – in any event, it was really hot out. I need to make that cake again.

The intention of this blog entry is to simply give an update on me. Boring, I know, not nearly as exciting as when I make something. Speaking of which, I made White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies for my sister. Because she’s a cookie NUT. She’s like a Jessi-Made-Something-Sweet nut really.

Back to my point. My last post was made from Plymouth, Michigan, but this post – I’m making it from my new home in the City of Houston, in Texas. That’s right. I HAVE RETURNED HOME. Texas has, for as long as I can remember, always been consdered my home, you know, to me. My heart always wanted to return back to Texas – it’s where I belong. It’s where my Dad’s family is.

Sadly, about a month after we got here, one of my two favorite aunt (the other one being on my Mom’s side) died. She was my dad’s sister, his older sister, and she was sooo nice. I got to see her once before she died, and we were supposed to see each other the weekend she died. I miss her. She was one of those people who deserved the world, but didn’t have much, but considered that the world, because it was all they needed. A remarkable lady, gone far too soon, and I miss her and wish I had had more time with her before it happened.

But that’s what this about, talking about the big change in my life, moving from Michigan to Texas. I have not been to the ocean yet, but you can bet your buttons the first chance I have teh money I’m going. Last time I was there was in 2008, so it’s overdue.

Until next time –

Long time, no see, right?

It’s been nearly a year since my last update, so I should, concievably, have a lot to post, right? Well I probably do and I just can’t remember. Whatever. This is just a quick update in case anyone actually follows this.

If I had a proper kitchen, this would probably be updated frequently. But I hate my kitchen and ever since my best friend moved in, there’s even less room. But we’ll see about getting better at updating this thing. *sigh*

Life Update: No, I’m not dating anyone knew. No, I don’t have a job doing what I love, writing OR baking. Which sucks. BUT, I am moving next month from Michigan to Texas. BIG CHANGE. That’s mostly what this next month is going to focus on. I also just quit my job working midnights as a cashier at a localized to the Midwest retail store.

So expect a few updates coming – baking ones. Because I don’t have anything on the writing front which I’ve never kept updated anyway. Actually, I might return to my research for that one book that THERE is a post about. If you wanted to go look it up in archives. If I update about that, I’ll post a link then.

Until next time, toodles.

I have currently in progress, before my latest idea hit me, six stories, now it’s seven. And none of them are really written beyond an idea.

But ever since Harry Potter ended with the last movie last year, I’ve had this want to write my own story, my own story where I create the world. And movies like Avatar, a whole world created from someone’s mind… incredible. Or you know, in books like “Wicked” which I know, isn’t completely made up, it is based off things that could be real, but it’s the fact that there are Quadlings, obviously made up, they dont’ exist anywhere in this world. Or that there could be witches, anyone can do it. It’s amazing to me. And then you know there are other books too, Harry Potter obviously, I mean she made up some of the coolest things for that world. And in Twilight, she took the idea of vampires and twisted it. Yes, some people think it’s stupid that vampires sparkle… but that’s the thing about writing. Take legends, things that people have assumed to be true and take your own liberties.

I want to do that. I want to create a world like that. And I wanted to do it with someone you don’t really see that often, so I thought… Fairies.

So I have this idea for a book on Fairies. Not like Tinkerbell – that will never get beyond a kids cartoon. Besides, my idea isn’t anything like that. Although… they still have never told us how Tinkerbell meets up with Peter Pan… Anyway.

But as I wrote this book, I realized that as much as I love this idea… I would love to do a book where it features all mythical creatures crossing, and trying to hide all of that from the human world. But that’s all I’ll say there. I don’t like to put my ideas out there until after I’ve developed them… and even then I won’t.

But like I said, I have seven books now. Well, six I guess. One is just a sentance that I have never developed a plot for. The rest have some kind of plot.

FAIRY BOOK – About fairies. What else? Really only one of them has an acutal name. I have notes and developed plot for this one. It may possibly be two books, I’m thinking. I came up with idea for this story when I had the urge to create my own world, but with characters or creatures that weren’t so overdone like Vampires and Werewolves.
JULIANNE AND TRISTAN – At this point her name is Julianne, but sometimes I think about changing it. This one, this story, I orginally developed from the movie LEGEND, but since it’s become alot more complicated. So when I write about this one and update eventually, it’s under Legends, because the book is about two people who come from a legendary race that isn’t supposed to exist anymore.
MYTHICAL CREATURES BOOK – This one, I decided to write because I wanted to write a book where creatures from the past, plus possibly ones I make up cross paths, and everything. Humans may be involved, they may not. This idea is just getting off the ground.
TEEN SCENE – This one, I actually wrote out a long time ago on my old computer… and then forgot to save, so I’m trying to reconstuct it from memory. Kind of, some of the things I had on papers, so the characters are the same and even the premise behind the story, but things have changed. I can remember most of it. But sometimes I think my old story¬†Mystic Jewels gets confused in it. That story needed alot of help. As does this one sometimes. But that’s why I’ve never even thought about trying to even begin to get this one published. I also once had a story called Teenage Troubles.
TWINS – This is just this little scene I started. I have no idea where it came from. It’s just sitting there, like one day I just wanted to start writing a story so I did. Truthfully, I’m not sure if this will ever get off my computer.
MY LIFE STORY – This one. This one is a difficult one. It’s kind of about my life. But not exactly. The characters are BASED off people in my life and even some of the events. But the main character (me) she has both her parents, and is an only child. I have a sister. And there are scenes that never happened. Not to mention the fact that she never moved, I moved to three different states. My best friend in teh story, that acutally happened to me in real life, what’s going to happen to her, just not exactly in the same story that mine did. You’ll see. I’ll keep you updated.

Any other updates on my stories and I’ll be sure to keep you updated. Also, if I were to write about EVERY fanfiction I have… this blog would be much much longer.
