down.. no internet

Down with no internet at home. Its ok though, I had a huge post to write yesterday but I can just recap for you now.

I have my book, I got the final details in my head yesterday morning on the way to work. It is going to be a whole lot more intricate that I had previously planned. I have alot of work to do to get me started on writing the actual story.

the line that I will use to describe the book is as follows:
when an intricate woman inspires a hedonist man to attempt love.

That will be the basis of the story line, yet there will be a big part of the book that involves friendships and soul mates. And most of the male characters personal will be replaced by my bff's persona. Even though she will be apart of the book. Essentially, its one person with 2 best friends that find themselves in a relationship, two people who shouldn't be together.

of course writing this book would completely throw off the other book I had in mind about soul mates but that is why novels don't have to be a series! I have a feeling this one will be maybe two or three books but my soul mate book will be more on the lines of "life of Pi" instead of a main stream novel.

Anyway, I have to start doing major research. Problem is where do I set the book to take place, half will be NY/Long Island, the other I have to choose, I can do Iceland. But I have a feeling that will cause too many problems. But I know what I want to incorporate into the book. And there is a lot that has to do with the scenery of Iceland. Oh well, I guess it will just be taking place in Iceland and I will have to deal with the bs from people later. I am using 3 actual people in my life for this book. SO.... I know I will trip along the fact that they will not be happy. But I know that my bff will get over it.

So The book takes place in Iceland and NY area, There are 3 main characters, both connected through one person. There relationship to "her" is from childhood, and now in adulthood they meet. Two very difficult people and very different people. An odd relationship develops between the two of them. she goes home, leaves him behind.... but he doesn't leave her alone

Book two, would be a continuation on one, Prologue would be comunications between the two of them, with the bff involved in the middle. Essentially the book would be placed in two different locations the entire time. Till the end when he shows up at her door step. (with something of hers)

Book three, Prologue would be his trip in ny, short and sweet, business only with a side of romance. The book than will start to develop more rapidly over the span of a year, each one making their part to be with the other. Bff soo stuck in the middle and not happy one bit. She never wanted this, she feels left out and alone.

Book four, Prologue bff understands whats going on and feels better about the situation. unwilling to settle, she is forced upon his request for one last visit to Iceland, through their week together she realizes that maybe this is the one, yet she returns home anyway. As a hedonist pursuant of what he wants, he gets the girl.

Ok so that works out better, and its 4 books. Now knowing me those 4 books could easily be 500 pages long each, But I want to max each book at 300. I'm going to start writing the books this week. Shouldn't take me more than a month to write out the first book. I will add in the intricate detailing after I get the main story down. So each book should be written by month.

Book 1: end of feb
book 2: end of march
book 3: end of april
book 4: end of may

Than I will start adding to and editing the first book to be done for the end of the year. I am figuring that it will prob take me a good 6 months to finish the final touches on each book. I also want to talk to my cuz who has 2 books out about publishing them. than most importantly I need to have my pen name down straight. I have way too many options, and its bothering me. I can't and will not put my actual name on the books. but thats just a personal thing. Anyway. There you have it. This will be what I am up against this year.

Funny thing is one of my best friends on facebook yesterday posted that she will be starting to write her own novel too, I guess bff's are bff's for a reason.

Also great news, after the holiday and all the crazy I decided to hold off on weighing myself till today I am 141.5! I think that is a great way to start off the new year! I am 6.5lbs away from my ultimate goal! I feel great, a lil bloated but that's no biggie. Also I have still been having major problems with my shoulder over here. I have pt tonight so I am so hoping to get taped up and start feeling better. I am going to be using my other blogs more too this year so check them to see what else is going on in my life....


  1. So cool...I'm always so impressed with folks who can actually write a book. I enjoy all the blogs because people can actually write...but to put it all together and crank out a book is something special.

    Good luck!

  2. Wow! You are so motivated! To finish a book in under two months! And it sounds like a very interesting story line.

  3. Isn't that everybody's dream? To publish a novel! I always marvel at the complicated story lines that always make sense in the end. Hope it's a best seller.

  4. Can't wait to see them on the shelves. :D
