How about we do the Dust It Off Bloghop first,
The first day, May 3rd: We want you to post a 1-2 sentence pitch (Great way to practice pitches) about the shelved WIP.
I shelved this WIP cause I couldn't finish it. I was dealing with some tricky stuff. Do I or Don't I kill off someone. I'm using this WIP in hopes off jumpstarting my passion to finish it.

A thirteen year old boy’s only hope for survival is his grandparent's home, but with three younger siblings to care for and the living dead lurking around every corner, the trek there could be the last mistake they ever make.
My closest friend of 13 years is my complete opposite when it comes to being girly. Of course I love being girly in the time of need; but do not love shoes or read love books, study fashion in NY, or design purses and shoes. She is very adventurous though. She loves sky-diving and travels everywhere. I love her for everything she is and she is my naughty counterpart. You wanna hear some great partying stories? We have them. How about that one time when - no, not appropriate. Or maybe that time when - no can't tell that one either.
Jaimie and I played 20 questions and here they are...
1.) Can you tell me again about the first time you remember meeting me?
Well I had just started dating your brother, and he said we were going to go to his sister's house. So we get there, and you are sitting there, hubby #1 and (his bestfriend) Gabe (I think) are playing a video game and we're just sitting on the couch hanging out. You were pregnant with baby #1 and you said Sorry we're not much fun. And then you were telling us some story about mice or rats in your apartment.
2.) What trip would you do with me again; going to Cedar Point or New York?
Definitely NYC. We had crap weather the whole weekend while you were there. I would like you to see the real New York where everyone is out.
3.) What’s your favorite memory of us?
How the hell am I supposed to pick a favorite memory?? I have so many memories, they are all my favorites :) What's YOUR favorite memory of us?
4.) What would you do if you were made to celebrate your birthday on ONE day and ONE day only?
Well, this would never happen...but if for some crazy reason I had only one day to celebrate, I would get up early, go shopping for some birthday treats to myself, probably at least a pair of shoes, and an outfit or two. After that, I would have a nice lunch with Luke somewhere yummy, maybe Salvatori's (if you haven't tried it, you need to. It'll change your life), then we'd go home and have some amazing sex, shower, and then I'd start the long process of getting ready for my birthday party! We would meet up with everybody important to me for dinner and drinks maybe at club soda or baker street (because this is my fantasy and money is no object!) after that we would go to flashbacks where they would only play the awesome old music that make us dance and laugh and sing along to at the top of our lungs! After we closed the bar down, we would go to IHOP and eat lots of yummy food like hashbrowns and bacon! Then Luke would take me home and put me in bed. And that might just be the best birthday I've ever dreamt of. Keep this, it might the plan for next year :)
5.) If we were to get another tattoo together, but this time about us, what would it be?
Maybe the Chinese symbol for sisters
Name only one thing from each category below that you would want if you were stranded on a deserted island
Almost Famous. Weird that we'll have a tv and dvd player on a deserted island :)
umm...since I'm trapped on a desert island, I probably want some light reading so I'll take something by Lauren Weisberger or Emily Giffin
8.) TV show?
9.) Ethnicity of food i.e. Italian, Mexican, etc?
Mmm probably Italian.
10.) Mountain Dew or Beer?
Hmm...is it ice cold? Nothing tastes better on a hot deserted island than an ice cold beer. On the other hand...warm mountain dew is pretty nasty.
11.) Bikini or One Piece? And you can only have ONE swim suit.
Bikini. I would probably pick a comfy one, either my white plaid one or my teal striped boyshorts w/ teal top.
12.) Lip Gloss or Mascara?
Lip Gloss! I can't go anywhere without mascara, but if I'm on a desert island no one will see me, my lips will know they are dry.
13.) Sleeping Arrangements: Cot or Hammock?
Hammock! I love those things :)
14.) You can only take 5 things from your apartment; what would they be?
Hmmm...chapstick, my fav picture of Luke, sunscreen, kindle, and my phone. I originally had Rambo (her cat) on here, but he'd probably starve. I'd like to think my sister or Luke would think of him once they heard I was stranded and take care of him while I'm away.
15.) Would you exercise or relax? Probably relax at first, but depending on how long I'm stranded I would get bored, and start working out.
16.) What is the best part about waking up in the mornings?
I suppose I should say the best thing about waking up in the mornings is the fact that I'm waking up to enjoy another day, but honestly since I'm not a morning person, nothing seems good about waking up in the mornings. Unless it’s summer and I don't have to work, or Luke is in my bed :)
17.) What is the biggest accomplishment you’ve done in the past year?
I would say the fact that I'm in a real, grown up relationship, and I've taken steps to do what I really want to do with my life
18.) Something you haven’t done but want to in the future?
See my shoe designs in stores!
19.) Biggest regret if there is any?
I wish I would've given New York more of a chance while I was there. Maybe stayed and did an internship, and gotten a job out there after school. Sometimes I wish I had, but then I wouldn't have met Luke, so mostly I'm glad things turned out like they did.
20.) Tell me something about yourself that I might not know.
Well, with the encouragement of Luke, I am contacting people and doing research and writing up a business plan to design my own shoes and bags! I'm very excited, though it's going to be a long, slow process.
