T is for Troment


So today's Hello of Today is in Hungarian. I love looking up all these different kinds of ways to say hello in foreign languages. To find these language translations, I've been using Google Translate. It's so much fun. I can't wait to do tomorrow's post just so I can find a new way to say hello. I wonder if anyone else finds this as cool as I do. Oh well, Pickers can't be Choosers.

The Word of the Day is brought to you by the letter T. The Word of the Day is Torment, which if you look the definition up on Google, it means, well apparently there's more than one meaning. So I'll list them all. 1. Great Physical Pain or Mental Anguish. 2. A source of harassment, annoyance, pain. 3. The torture inflicted on prisoners under interrogation. Well, now that everyone knows what torment means, I'll move on to tell you my reason for picking this word. If you don't already know, Lauren Kate, the author of Fallen has come out with a new book called Torment. I haven't read this book yet but it's on my Must Read list. This ends today's Word of the Day portion of my blog.

On to the next big matter of business. I finally made a complete online version of my Must Read Book List of 2011 to my to-read list on Goodreads. So go check it out. I have over a one hundred and three books because I found out that a lot of the books I want to read this year are a series. I didn't expect to have so  many different series to read this year. I just figured, hey I'll give this book a shot and see if I like it. I also have a pet-peeve about books that are a part of a series. If I find out the book is a series, then I'm like I have to read all the books in that series. I don't know if any of you are up there with me. I'm probably the only one.

Guess what. I started Chapter Six this morning. I'm not finished with it. But at least I started it. Now the question is if the chapter correlates with the other five chapters that I already have in place. My plan for The Light Chronicles is to finish it or to come close to finishing it this year. Then in 2012, I will go back and revise and edit it. I know it's going to take a while to do so my first goal is to finish it. Since I am still early on in the book, I'm not sure where it will end. My characters are the ones telling the story, not me. Everything that is happening seems to be right where they want it to be and where I want it to be. If you would like to take a look at the other five chapters, you can check them out here at Inkpop or Authonomy. I will however not be posting anymore chapters up on either of these websites.

In other news, I am so excited to be writing again. Its has been a few months since I've written the last  chapter and I'm not back into the full swing yet. So, I have to get back into it. Even though I don't feel one hundred percent totally there yet.

Today, my day consists of writing my book, doing this blog post which is almost complete, and I think there's something else going on but I'm not sure yet.

Well, thanks for taking the time to read my really long post. I know it must have taken you a while so I'm pleased you stuck through it  to the end. Oh, I'll try to make them shorter from now on. Have a great day.

Love Britt
