I may have mentioned at some point that I got a creative writing scholarship for school. I can’t even tell you how happy that made me, and for a thousand different reasons. somebody thinks my writing isn’t crap. I don’t have to take out another loan. It’s all kinds of good. It’s also a work-study… Continue reading Work Study (I’m a Proofer Again!)
Friday the 2nd was my last day working at summer camp. While I still have a small part-time job on the side, my days had abruptly emptied themselves. Today I had no external responsibilites. All day I found myself checking the time, trying to make sure I didn’t miss… what? I don’t even know. Whenever… Continue reading The Lethargic Writer
I haven’t been around for a while. I was super busy getting straight A’s at school! Whoohoo! I’ve become very anal about my schooling in the past two years, and when push comes to shove, school trumps everything else in the world when it comes to importance (short of breathing, ’cause, y’know, that’s important in… Continue reading Where Have I Been?
I’m having a meltdown, m’kay? Not a real meltdown, but I’m really busy, and even with packed days I still go to bed with stuff needing to be done. So basically I’m saying I shall try my best to post for the next three weeks until school lets out, but it ain’t gonna be easy.… Continue reading Meltdown Having
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
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!
Self-importance to the max, people. Bear with me while I pretend you’re all dying to hear the mindless prattle I’m about to write. Up on the navigation bar you’ll notice the tabs for Snow and Summer Rush have disappeared and this innocuous little one labeled Fiction has appeared. Well, in case you can’t figure it… Continue reading Sometimes I Pretend People Hang on My Every Word
I’m packing, guys. I’m packing to move out of the familial home for the first time in my life. This may be shocking, but I’ve never spent the night away from home before. Crazy, I know, but it’s true. I was never the sleepover type. And now I’m loading my crap into boxes and moving… Continue reading So… Packing
Before I give my customary screaming post of exuberation, a quick thanks to Valerie Moses from So It Must Be True… for giving me the Illuminating Blogger Award! I’m going to do a post on that tomorrow. But first! Last night I finished my novel! You know, the one I mentioned a post or two… Continue reading Novel Fifteen!
Every night last week when I jumped into bed, I wondered when on earth I was going to get a chance to write again. I haven’t written a substantial word of fiction since I finished California Girl. I’ve written a ton of poems, though, for creative writing class. Haiku and minute poems. Catalogue poems. Anti-odes.… Continue reading This Is How We Do It
