Well, it’s 8:11 pm on day five, and I’m procrastinating on homework while writing about aromatherapy and super powers. Interesting mix, no? WORD COUNT: 18,005 I got off to a decent start with 8,000 on day one and wrote (sor far) 5,000 today, but I floundered a little bit for the three days in-between. But… Continue reading It’s Towards the End of Day Five
I know, I know. A title such as that is often a gimmick for attention. But in all honesty, it doesn’t take much poking around the blog to see I’ve been neglecting it a lot lately. That’s partly because I’ve been up to my eyeballs in work, and partly because I am fresh out of… Continue reading Am I Getting Tired of Blogging?
I told myself I was going to finish this book in October, and GOSH DARN IT, I am going to! Bear witness, readers. Gabrielle promised herself and you that she would finish UNTITLED by the end of October. Preferably by the thirtieth so she’ll have at least one day for NaNo prep. On the topic… Continue reading It’s October!
It’s almost time for NaNo, y’all! I’m getting pretty excited, although I’ve been terrible about writing regularly in these past couple of weeks (darn school). I need NaNo to psyche me up and force me to write. I’m really hoping I can get the creative writing club on board with NaNo. I have a ton… Continue reading NaNo’s Getting Closer
The first good news being, I made it to the next round of the TCWT agent pitch contest! Whoohoo! John is probably so tired of seeing Summer Rush’s pitch and first 250 words. Haha. Naturally, other people made it to the next round as well – nine awesome authors, to be exact. You should go… Continue reading Good News!
I think we can all agree that I’m not very organized. I’m a little bit scatter-brained and a lot spontaneous with a dab of airhead. Those are the ingredients used when my brain was assembled, and that’s that. So I may be alone (although I highly doubt it) when I say that it’s just so… Continue reading It’s Bloody Hard to Keep Up with Everything
I don’t think I talk enough about how important it is to have backup in this career called melting your brain writing. At its core, writing is a solitary endeavor, but in the hours when we’re not literally slaving over our keyboards, we writers need all sorts of different people to stroke our ego, hand… Continue reading The Importance of Partners in this Writing Game
Clearly, the universe wants me to follow up on my resolution from my last post. What should I see in my school email inbox this morning but a call from student publications to come see what they’re up to? I’ve always wanted to work on a student newspaper, ever since I was a kid. Being… Continue reading Step Numero Uno
… sitting at the next table who laughs at your jokes, surfs forums but never comments, and has a million thoughts but never actually expresses them. Well, I’m writing to tell you that I’m endeavoring to change! I want to become a more proficient and proactive communicator, especially on the blogosphere. I follow a ton… Continue reading I’m Like that Creepy Person…
Ladies, gents, flies on the wall, how many times have I tried to write Summer Rush’s companion novel, California Girl? I’m honestly not trying to sound conceited, but a lot of people ask me about it, and I always hem and haw and mutter into my shirt collar about how I’m working on it, I… Continue reading I’m At It Again
