I finished Stephanie Meyer's new book! And I have to say, I loved it. She is a brilliant writer.

Being an aspiring writer myself, It's hard not to see the brilliance and creativity that she uses. It's also hard to not let my ego take over and say that there is no way I could every compete with her level of writing.

How does she do it?

Anyway, Loved it. Read it in 3 days. Luckily I was sick so I had a good excuse to just to lay in bed and read.

I have joined a writing group. In fact, I'm joining 2 different writing groups. I love it and found out that you can enter either a poem, essay, or short story in the Peach Days writing competition.

So I woke up at 5:30am the next morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I got up, and wrote for an hour and a half. The short story can only be 2000 words or shorter. Mine is exactly 2000 words!!

I'll let you know what happens. The winner "gets" to read his/her piece in front of everyone! WOoo Hoooo!

I had a friend proof it for me and she said it made her cry. It made me cry as I wrote it so that is a good sign right? By the way, It's called "The Marathon".

Since I can't run myself, I can dream and write about it.

If I win, I will post it.
