Starting New

Well I'm going to give this blog thing another go under my new account.

I'm Casey. I'm a writer-hopefully one day a published one-and that's about all I've been doing lately. I'm a senior at the University of Tulsa and completely my first full length novel in 2005 while crammed into my dorm room. It's my last year and I've finally completed me second (Calling You: Sealed) and am started on my third(Calling You: Joined). Calling you is a series that I am working on/have been obsessed with writing. It centers around a girl name Samantha Grace who's adopted and finds out that she isn't normal, in any sense of the word. And if she doesn't screw things up too much, she could get something that most people would kill for: power, love, and eternal youth. Unfortunately, it seems like the person that most people would for it, is her.

It's a very complex story but I have plenty of time to write it this semester as it is my last and my school schedule consists of Ballet, Improv, Communications, Studio Art, European film and Independent Study. And my hours have been cut at work. But I'm not complaining. I like time to breathe. Unfortunately it also means that I have plenty of time to be at home and check my email. Which I have a lot of temptation to do because I sent out a few queries for Calling You: Sealed. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, especially for an agent at Writer's House named Maya Rock. I've heard that she replies quickly, I just hope that I'll get a partial or full request! It's a step in the direction I'm hoping to go. Maybe one day I'll see my dream actualizated and I can walk into the NY public library and sign their copy of my book like in Breakfast At Tiffany's.


But thankfully my only difficult-ish class is Small Group Communication. But it's cool. And I found out that Kristin Cast, co-author of the YA series House of Night is in my class. I recently read the series and I must say it's rather good. And it's set in Tulsa so there are landmarks and locations I'm familiar with, which is a lot of fun. I'm starting to think that Oklahoma is the state to write paranormal literature in though. But anyways, you should check it out. House of Night, not Oklahoma...unless you want to see Oklahoma, in which case go ahead but you won't mind much. Except erratic weather.


P.S. Meg Cabot is great. Been reading her blog for years. Maybe one day her blog writing prowess will seep into me. Today is her birthday so Happy B-day to her!!!! And Happy SuperBowl Sunday too...(yea...I don't even know who's playing.)

P.P.S. Been working on getting my writing playlist together for Joined. It's a little darker on one end and near lighthearted on the other than Sealed was so the whole thing is like a roller coaster. I'll be uploading the playlists to my iPod as soon as it stops acting like an idget....

  1. Hey there, I have recently started my own blog and am trying to get some viewers. Writing is my biggest passion so I understand where you are coming from. I have read The House of Night and I agree it is quite good. I read about three books a week sometimes more sometimes less. I really like all the supernatural books that are out there and the different views each writer gives. Anyway like I said I really enjoy writing which is why I started my page to show some of my work. I have strong opinions, however, believe everyone is entitled to their own so please check it out and voice your opinion.


    P.S. Wish you luck with the book maybe I will be reading a copy someday.
