2010--Tiger On the Loose--2011

I am consumed with another book idea. This year, 2010, Year of the Tiger has been prosperous and exciting. The launch of Guam Books and Beads with my partner in literary goals, Alison has been a dream realized. But, with all successes, comes maintenance. There have been things I’ve neglected and things I’ve forgotten. A balance needs to be achieved, but right now I’m raging with scenes and ideas for another novel idea. My first novel, which some close friends have read, needs fixing. My characters, Thomas and Phoenix will someday see the light of day. I have an agent waiting for my revised draft. It’s been a year and I have had my focus elsewhere. But, this new idea which I have only shared with my husband is consuming me, this last day of 2010.

So, in a mad rush to get my ideas and these characters fleshed out, I will type like a beast today, especially since my darling children are napping. Starting out 2011 with a bang! I will probably be at my computer typing out scenes, the scenes of this new novel that can’t be contained as the New Year is rolling in.

I wish my family and friends love and success and happiness in 2011. Si Yu’os Ma’ase for your support with my current publications and send me good vibes with my never ending dream to become published, traditionally. One day, my novel will be on bookshelves for general consumption. One day, that novel will be adapted into a movie. And, one day you’ll see me walking the red carpet with the A-list actors portraying my beloved characters. Be kind to me, for you may be given a part as an extra in my movie.

A Chamorro/Korean chick can dream, right? GUAM rules!

Esta later!
