Slacking

Wow, I haven't wrote on here in forever:( Shame, shame on me...

Well right now school has taken up a lot of my time. It's my last year of high school and I'm trying to make sure I pass. It's pretty important you know:P The writing has continued, although some of it isn't for my book. I'm trying to win a contest-a 500 word short story. Now I don't do short stories, so this is kinda hard for me. I ended up with nearly 500 extra words. A couple of my friends are helping me chop it down by Friday-the due date.

I also got asked to write a short story for a blog. It's good exposure, I just need to come up with something decent. I could just retype some of my old stories, but I don't really feel like sharing those...Not until I'm trying to publish them...

While I'm rambling, that reminds me I need to work on A Primrose's Beauty and try to get that self-published by the time I turn 18. Also, I like to draw, so I have a couple art projects going on as well...

Busy, busy, busy... -___-

First Comp. Grade

Okay, so when it comes to school I am def an over-achiever for sure!! (except for math XD lols) I'm the type of person who gets mad when I get a 98% and not 100%.

Today I got my first comp grade. This is the first pure writing class I've ever taken. Even though I've written a bunch of books...I really don't have that much of a writing background. My grade wasn't as good as I would of liked it to have been...Guess I just have to try better:\

Then again, everything takes practice, right? That's all I have to do!

Back again

Wow, I haven't been on my blog in foreverrrrrrr!!

School has started and for some reason I have like triple my normal hours at work. So my internet-book stuff hasn't really been happening. The writing still continues, but it's obviously less. This year has been really hard for me (school-year) and I'm trying to focus on that more.

Luckily this week I have less hours, so I'm going to go the library to get some books, and definitely finish two chapters or more.

This should be a good week:3
