Yeah. Been kind of busy.

If anyone noticed, I haven't been online in a while. I have SO much more to post on my other blog than on here. I wish I remembered my blog when I was at home, and I could post screenshots! Ugh. Well... um...

I have a question to ask you guys who read my Creative Writing story. Would you think it weird if I split up Part 12? Meaning, I would release Part 13 as well, with Rowan's view in half? The rest of the series won't have her PoV in there, though. If you DO want two parts, then I can release part twelve NOW. It will be shorter in that case. So? What do you think?

...OOPS...

I JUST remembered that I promised someone Part 12 would be done by March! Oh dangit... xD So, maybe I will HAVE to split it up so that I don't break my promise!

Another thing: My Word Document is officially 200 pages long. Yayes!

    Hey! Remember me?
    So...heh...sorry I couldn't be there Saturday. Maybe a day after I sent my comment, I remembered 2 little words that I COMPLETELY forgot about.
    SPRING BREAK.
    Geez...I am SO stupid. HOW could I forget that we would spend all day Saturday to our destination?
    So, I won't be available from today until Saturday. Why don't you pick a date next time?
    So...you're probably wondering how I'm commenting.
    It's really funny actually. I brought my laptop along on the trip so I could get some of my story done. And then I found out that the parental control thing somehow didn't work in the place where we were staying for the night! AWESOMENESS!
    But we're actually going to another place; that was just a stop along the way. And i'm not sure if that other hotel has internet connection or not. If it does, I'll send you another comment right away. Or maybe when my busy vacation schedual will allow.
    NOW...onto your story.
    I don't think you should split up the two halves. I like the idea of the story going back and forth between the two of you. And I believe in long stories. My part 10 is already a lot longer than the others.
    And speaking of long stories, congratulations on hitting the 200 mark! My story is only...wait one sec...
    *checks Word document*
    ...108. It's officially the longest story I've ever written!
    I'm still waiting (impatiently) for parts 7 and 8 to come out. Maybe (who knows?) I'll even be a featured author by then!
    Oh yeah, and I wanted to ask your opinion on something. When TTOSS is over, I don't really want to stop sending stories to W101. So I'm thinking of some other ideas. And I'm thinking about doing a prelude or something like that. I've got this whole backstory on Cyrus Drake (more on that in 7,8, and 9) and maybe I could write a story on somehing that happened then. Heck, I could even do a whole series! What do you think?
    Hope to talk to you later!
    Oh, and I was the 11% who voted on Life! YAY!
    AND my fan art picture is almost done! I'll have it sent in mabe a few weeks!

  2. Thank you, awesome hotel!!!

    Don't worry about the Saturday thing: I just remembered now, too. I wasn't there. xD Our Spring Break isn't until next week, though. Fortunately, I don't THINK we're going anywhere... but you never know!

    Okay. Since you're the only one who replied (where did everyone go?), I guess I WON'T split them up. I hope whoever I promised that to doesn't remember...

    I like your idea of a backstory of some sort. When I finish MY story, I'm probably going to stop writing - at least for a little while. For us Wizard101 Authors, the game is much more difficult: not only do we have to keep writing all the time to complete new chapters, but we have to level up our characters, too. That's why it took me so long to reach Grandmaster. I had been a member for a YEAR and hadn't reached Grandmaster. A YEAR! ...Yeah, I'm still upset about that a bit...

    So, I'll *temporarily* stop writing, just to get another Grandmaster on Laura Darkglen. When she becomes as powerful as Sierra, maybe I'll start a new series that's all about her adventures. Or maybe I'll finish my edited version on Central. Or maybe I'll do a sequel of some sort. Who knows? I've had many ideas for other stories (including "Laura's Legend" about Laura that was originally going to be a companion story for TToSW, but was discontinued after the second chapter because I needed to change Part 7 A LOT; and also, a story that was going to be for Central about if Malistaire won and Wizard City was taken over, but a group of rebels tries to stop him). So... possibly I can work on those.

    Now... your story...

    Yeah, keep writing. I like the idea... but remember, writing comes with a cost! :)

    You voted for Life? Ahem... what about ICE? I came on today, and it was the only school without any votes! I couldn't let that happen, so I voted for it. Probably shouldn't vote on my own poll, but, well, sometimes you just have to do things to protect your school!

    It's awesome that you have over 100 pages. TToSW also is my longest story. Ironic, really, that my longest and probably BEST is the only one I can't publish because of copyrights. :( Oh, that's another thing I can maybe write when I finish this. One of my real life stories that I forgot about...

    Ooh... I can't set a date now. Um, can you meet Saturday, same place, same time? I mean that I can't set a date because I have to get off REALLY FAST right now. Maybe later today I'll come on and look this up! Sorry!

    Guess what?!
    The parental control thing doesn't work at this hotel either!
    Which means I can comment for the whole week!
    Again-AWESOMENESS!
    Sorry, but I can't be there Saturday. That's the day we'll be driving home, and this laptop has SERIOUS battery issues. Seriously, after, like, 7 minutes after unplugging it, it goes DEAD!
    How about sometime the following weekend? Maybe Sunday (Mar 21) at noon Pacific time? I know it's a long time to wait, but I'm not allowed to do W101 when I'm on vacation, and I really don't have the time on school days.
    So...
    WHAT?! Seriously?! Ice got NO VOTES?! I thought Sierra W. being ice would make it really popular!
    No, seriously, I'm sorry about that. I hope you get more votes soon!
    Sorry...can't think of anything else to say...

  4. Haha. Your laptop sounds like my digital camera - it won't last for ten minutes before it must be charged again.

    I don't know if the 21st is a very good idea. Why? Well... it's Rowan's birthday. Yeah... so unless SHE wants me on, I'm probably going to be spending the day with her. Sorry, but I'm sure you understand with the "little siblings" thing... :)

    Um... how about Sunday? Um, well, it would have to be later at night. I still haven't checked the differences between my time and Pacific, so I don't know anything good. You can choose another one, or one of these days I'll figure it out myself. Right now I'm in a hurry.

    Enjoy your vacation! :D

  5. Too many long posts. Not reading.

    Hmm...Sunday could be ok. We will be home then, but I'll have to get done with my unpacking first; otherwise my mom will never let me get on!
    What time works for you in your time zone? I'm actually pretty good with the whole time zone thing, so maybe we can find a time that works for both of us.
    So anyway, happy early birthday Rowan!
    Oh, and I checked the poll again and ice got another vote! (Or was that just you again..? -.-) Life only has 1 though...
    Okay, since no one has commented so far but me, I'm just going to keep this going as long as possible, even if it means I'm going to have to resort to randomness. :)
    So right now, I'm going to tell you what's been going on on our vacation. It's pretty simple. We sleep in, eat pancakes for breakfast, and then we go to the pool all day until we get sunburned. XD
    Nah, that's not it. To tell you the truth I actually prefer waffles to pancakes...
    But we really do a lot of swimming. And tennis. And I think there's going to be this kareoke thing soon. I can't wait!
    My mom absolutely loves the weather. It's been really cold back at home, and she's more of a warm-weather person. It'll be torture for her to have to go back.
    The only thing is that this hotel has about 4 TVs, and I actually can't watch TV ( at least until Easter)! And my siblings have developed the habit of each going to a different room and turning on the TV that's in there, so when that happens, I practically have to shut myself outside because there isn't a room in the hotel in which I'm not allowed!
    And that's mainly it. :D

    Oh, sorry, I just realized I CAN'T do it on Sunday! Turns out we're staying here one extra day and driving home on Sunday instead! GEEZ, why didn't anyone tell me?!?
    -_-?
    Anyways, Part 12 is HOW LONG?! O.o Wow, that's amazing! Not sure if people will have the time to read all that at once!
    =)

  8. Haha, well, since you're the only one copying, do you think I should split it up? I really can't decide. Maybe I'll just send it in and ask them if they want me to split it up or not...

    I FINALLY looked up the time zone differences. I'm an hour later than Pacific time. So... nothing after seven Pacific time and nothing before nine pacific, on weekends. Well, during the week any time next week, I'll be able to get on, because it's MY Spring Break, so if you're good any time then...

    I'll try and get Rowan to vote for Life for you. ;)

    Okays, I think I FINALLY have a date for us!
    I'm atually free next Friday, so since that's your spiring break, we can do it at 2:00 at your time. Same place - Krok. spiral chamber and in Vampire District. If we miss each other, than you can post another date here.
    Hmm...you should probably send the story in anyway. I mean, even with the two parts split up, they'll still be incredibly long. And if they want to submit it, it'll probably be on in the next day or so. (By the way, did you see the post on creative writing? Featured authors get their stories submitted as soon as they enter them. Lucky!)
    I can't wait to read it!
    Oh, and I finished my Part 10!
    Yays!
    But I really can't go to much into detail over it because they STILL haven't posted 7...
    *sigh*
    Oh, and Rowan, would you please vote life? It's like Sierra said: sometimes we've got to do things to protect our school! ;)

  10. I'll try my best to be there! So... wait. That would be one Pacific time, right? Just to clarify everything.

    Rowan hasn't been on the blog in a while, but I'll see if I can convince her to help you out. :D

  11. Sarah SpiritheartMarch 12, 2010 at 4:46 AM

    Yep. It's also three Central and four Eastern. Hope that clarifies everything.
    Okay, so there's a few things you might need to know...
    1. I don't use text chat - my parents won't let me. =(
    2.I actually pay for areas using crowns, so all I can actualy go to is Wizard City, most of Krokotopia, and the commons areas of Marleybone, Mooshu, and Grizzleheim.
    So as long as you don't have a problem with any of that stuff...
    I'll try to get more crowns soon!
    ...
    So...what do you want to talk about?

  12. Sarah SpiritheartMarch 13, 2010 at 5:02 PM

    Yeah, we're going home tomorrow morning. :(
    And once we get home, the parental control thingy starts working again. *groans*
    Anyway, it was fun talking to you again! I'll try to post more comments somehow...
    See you Friday! And tell us when you've posted Part 12! ;)
