Getting into the swing of things

I finished my last paper for school today, and am finally free to read and write what I want. :D

I have had an idea for a story for a few months now, just been working it out in my head, and now its finally time to start typing away at it! I made myself wait to write it so not to interfere with my grades. Writing, for me at least, its very consuming and takes up lots of time. I wanted to make sure I had one less commitment. So, this summer break I hope to crank out this book! Plan to hear lots from me on this blog and Facebook and twitter. I might even plan a giveaway or two! Online world be prepared...I am coming at you with full force!

There are a few staples I have to have when preparing to write a book. 1. An empty notebook. Mine is red (my favorite color) and my mom gave it to me. I use a notebook to keep track of plot lines and use it to write my outline for the story. It is only a one subject so I have a feeling I might have to buy another one at some point. 2. A good pen. I found one of my favorite pens today right in time! I like pens where the ink flows and goes on smooth. 3. A computer! A person who really believes in my bought me a computer about a year ago just for my writing and I'm glad I can finally say its going to be used for that.

Tomorrow the writing begins...to bad I don't have a title for this new book yet.
