  3. writing a novel:
    well first i will have to sit down and talk to my room mate as I will need her help to begin.
    I think next week would do really good as I should be more calmer-though if I get any calmer I’d be dead!
    here at my place because I don’t want any interference as I always get when I start something new. Thats why it doesn’t go very far before I loose interest( trying to have everyone leave me alone so I can get work done on the novel. this will be attempt #4)
