A Quick Update!

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to apologize quickly for the lack of updates. I recently moved to Israel for a year before college and life has been extremely hectic. I'm taking classes and living in dorms and there is basically no internet in my dorm. ( I have a rare free hour at school right now.) Anyway, I'm still alive and writing! Well, I'm not writing too much right now, but my ideas are still flowing. Most of my projects will be on hold until January or February, where I move to a smaller town and begin volunteering. Everyone who has done this program in the past says that the pace of life gets a LOT slower during the second semester and people spend a lot of time reading and catching up on TV shows. What am I going to do? Write, of course! So keep me on your watchlist, I'm not stopping my writing!

Updates on my specific projects:
Meridian:As I planned, I will probably resume work in a few months. I'm still at a loss for ideas, but my brainstorming for other stories has helped.
Harry Potter Prequels: Also still going, don't worry! I just don't really have internet access to communicate with my beta readers, and I spend a lot of my free time that I used to use for writing exploring the city I live in and hanging out with friends and such. But don't worry. I got so far on that project and it still really excites me, so I'm still working! Feel free to ask me any questions if you have them.

(ps... it took me the longest time to figure out how to use blogspot here! The entire website is in Hebrew, which is why the formatting looks so weird.)

I'll update you all soon, when I start working again. They said they are going to be fixing the internet in my dorm building within the next week or two. I anticipate that I will begin writing a  bit again once that happens, because there are a few afternoons where I don't have class and my roommates do, so I have the room to myself and nothing really to do. So hopefully I'll be able to be productive again, because I really miss my stories! If you have any questions about anything at all, please ask me! Ask on here, on my formspring, on my email... whatever.

Until next time!
