The last day of the year is a time for reflection and celebration, is it not? I love New Years. It’s like finishing a book and moving on to the next one. You get to look at the second book with fresh eyes, but you still have the experience and the knowledge from the previous… Continue reading Last Day of the Year!!!
Today is the last day of NaNo and my word count is roughly 122,500 words – or something like that. I was going to go for 125,000 but I got distracted by making covers! Let me know what you think! I might be posting again tonight, or rather, way early tomorrow morning, for a scream of… Continue reading New Covers and the Last Day of NaNo
Got my new phone, a Samsung Gravity 3 Had my last day at school Looked forward to Thanksgiving Thought about all the different ways a bad guy could really be good Wrote the beginning of a scene in which Angel will get Hell hurt when he was actually trying to help her Went to Panera… Continue reading Today I…
You know that character? That one who is so awesome you’ll love him forever, no matter what he does, no matter how awful? Yeah. The character like that for me is Darius Preston Hanneman, aka Hell. He’s the supporting role in my Angel Saga (which I couldn’t resist writing on last night. Well, early this… Continue reading The Consequences of Writing Late at Night
A whole whopping page of the Angel Saga was lost into the novel-eating oblivion of my computer. I really don’t understand it. An entire Word document disappeared into thin air. And I was reading it just yesterday. How did that happen? And, being a lazy bum as usual, I hadn’t backed it up since two… Continue reading I Lost Part of my Novel
I feel kind of shellshocked. I was doing dishes earlier this morning and I kept thinking, “I need to get back to writing! I’ll never make 50k at this rate!” And then I remembered, I already made 50k! XD And so, in honor of my National Novel Writing Month 2009 novel, I give you the… Continue reading In Memory of NaNo 2009
I have found the perfect beginning to California Girl. I think it is much more true to the original Lexi, plus it adds way more fun to it. I have to admit, Rexi’s relationship isn’t as golden as it was in the Inkpop version, but it was a lot more fun to write. Not to… Continue reading Writing and Stuff
I am supposed to be studying for my history test tomorrow as I write these words, but I really don’t want to. Besides that bit of homework, I could possibly be completing the concert critique that is also due to tomorrow, or the English homework that I am supposed to hand in tomorrow. But who… Continue reading Life, In General
YAY! I MADE IT! The sparkling 50k milestone has arrived, people! This morning at around 12:19-ish, I crossed the fifty thousand word mark and I’ll tell you… I hardly even noticed. Because I was watching Alias, I was dirt tired, and worried about how I was going to last through math class today (almost fell… Continue reading 50,000!
So, I’ve been rewriting and re-brainstorming Summer Rush for the past two or three weeks. And you know what my slow mind finally realized today? California Girl’s timeline has been completely trashed. The two books don’t line up anymore. In fact, I was looking through the different beginnings I wrote for California Girl (sometimes I… Continue reading Summer Rush and California Girl
