Hump Day  
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  Yay, the work week is halfway through.  I had writing class tonight and it was fantastic.  We were encouraged to bring something to read and I wanted to bring something original but all of my stuff was too long so I chose a piece of my fic.  Its called Cant Take My Eyes off of You and I read it aloud.  This was particularly excruciating as I do not like to read in front of people.  There are only four students and a teacher in the class though and they all encouraged me. I had to give the fic explanation first, to let them know this wasnt a part of the story I was working on for class.  They loved the story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was so happy as positive feedback is like heroin for the veins of my writing.  My teacher told me before class he had been on the national library to read my stuff because we talked pretty extensively about it last week before class.  I couldnt believe it.....this guy is a published mystery writer and playwright and he told me I was a good writer.  Not to be an egomaniac but I believed that I was a good writer, but having someone who has  been out there tell you feels really good.   Now if I could just get this original story to come together, things would be happening.  I got some good advice tonight though and this week I am going to work on making it happen.

In other news, I finished the Leo/OFC story and will post it here tomorrow in case anyone gives a hang and wants to read it.  I really love this original character and this could be the start of a series, though I dont see it reaching thirty stories or anything.  Just  a little something to have some fun with it.  I have a free weekend so I plan to probably spend it writing.  Whoo, I'm tired, hungry and I want to type this story, watch Criminal Minds and get to sleep at a decent hour.  Just wanted to post, get thoughts out of my head.  Tomorrow is the first and the first two weeks of every month are insane at my job.  I'll be running around like a chicken with my head cut off.  Good times.

Yes, it was a good evening. And my mom had to speak at church tonight and got a great offering because she was so good. My sister's birthday is Friday and I only have to buy her a book. I get to go to bed happy tonight.
