Action.

Hit my goal for the day! 35,000 words! However, I seriously doubt I will make it to 50k for NaNo. I really want to win, but I didn’t want to use any words I wrote before November, and the next scene I write is my climax scene. Then all I have is the falling action, […]

Stories.

I am so close to finishing this thing, I can taste it. I can smell the wonderful smell of a new, crisp hardback book, MY BOOK, in my hands as I open it for the first time, reading my name on the cover. I just finished writing for the day, and I caught up to […]

Dreams.

Today was awesome. Despite the sudden change in weather (I’m talking, suddenly it’s 9 degrees c with winds of 15mph and and hail one minute, rain the next, sun the next) and a FULL class load today, I had a great day at school. I showed up and my first class was pretty standard. But […]

Options.

So tonight I was invited to go to dinner with my friend, and we spent a lot of time eating and shopping and back in my apartment talking and watching kpop videos. It was so nice to have something to do after work, and also not to have to cook for once. Today was FREEZING. […]

Progress.

Yesterday I was too tired to write a proper blog post, so I gave you a quote instead! I spent the day cleaning the house, doing laundry, doing dishes, and what not. I didn’t get much writing done, so I had to make up for that today. I also watched a movie called The Truman […]

Accomplishments.

Today. Finally. I conquered my fear. My fear of jump roping. Let me start of by saying today was pretty normal until my class before lunch. I walked in knowing they were going to cause trouble, because there are a few kids in there who are loud, but usually they don’t do much other than […]

Comfort.

It was cold today. I wore gloves to ride my bike to school and bought a bottle of hot tea at the convenience store, but it wasn’t so hot by the time I got to school…  I had a FULL day of classes (6 in a row with one break for lunch) and although as […]

Laminators.

So. I had a day at the office today because some of my schools were off. It was good for me, because I had to print, cut, laminate, and cut (again) over a hundred game cards and vocabulary flash cards for my week at elementary schools this week. I spent SIX HOURS doing that. I […]

Celebration.

So yesterday I didn’t get any more wordage into my WIP. But I was ahead so I let myself relax for the rest of the day and it was nice. Today I went to a party! So I am kind of (extremely) obsessed with a group called NEWS. When I was in high school, I […]
