Well, I just went browsing through the ol’ blog and realized I haven’t posted in FOREVER! I am ashamed, I offer myself to the stoning. *spreads arms wide*
No, not really, but angry comments will be welcomed for my negligence. So here’s some news of the day!
I have slightly helped to make the most fabulous three-layer chocolate cake with my best friend for Easter. It is a tower of dark brown, sugary goodness. It has a delightful peanut butter filling, originally meant as a meringue but with the thickness of the peanut butter became more of a fudge. The cake itself is a coffee vanilla chocolate cake, with home-made vanilla extract. The icing is a traditional (also home-made) chocolate icing, made with Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Bitter-Sweet Dark Chocolate Pieces. The salty sweet of the peanut butter, the bitter sweet of the icing and the just all-out sweet of the cake is going to come together in the magnificence that true chocolate/peanut butter cakes are meant to be. I CAN’T WAIT FOR EASTER!
Now for actual writing news! I have been making great strides in the storyline for the Elaseim project! If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out the background chapters, here is a link to my Goodreads ‘book’ with all you need! I’m really excited to say I believe I have the whole project finally completely planned out. It’s a matter of getting it all out of my head and onto paper! I love being able to say that. I am still having trouble with the title, not that I’m worried in any way about it. I have a ways to go with writing and editing before I really need to worry about it, but it would be a nice thing to have prepared. Anyone who reads the history chapters and has an idea about a possible title, leave a comment with the title and why you think it would work, I would really appreciate it. 🙂
In other other news! I still haven’t finished the short story and I’m running out of time! I’m vowing to you all! I will get it done by this coming Wednesday and it will be posted promptly! Don’t let me back down on this, guys! I want to enter this and get it done!
And with that I have to get ready for work. -.- Thanks all for sticking around despite the respite. New post for String Warping for Homosexuals will be up soon! Cheers!
