Writing and life as of now



Hey, it's not too bad! Haha!

Luckily I don't work tonight, so I can somewhat write again. The problem with not writing after a day or so is that I start to forget what was going on in my story. I don't mean everything, but like the mood and setting I had at that moment. I'll have to read it again to figure out what was happening in my head.

Another problem I have is my blogging Wednesday. Every Wednesday I share a poem or short story of mine on All Things Book's blog...but not too long ago the website changed. It's on a different setup, or website style, one that won't let me log into. My internet or laptop is awful because I won't let me post on the website, which makes me sad, because I love posting on the site. They admin. of the group says there's a post option, but it doens't appear on my computer... So with that, I can't do anything :(

Oh well... Going to keep checking up on my book stuff now. (See how much I do in school?? Just on the spellcheckless computer or having free time the whole day!) And yes, spellcheckless is indeed a work...as of now!

Hahaha!

Didn't get any writing done, but I have a valid excuse!

...Well not really, but it's valid enough for me!




Recently I've been trying to put in as much time into my writing as I can, steering myself from the internet. (Ironically enough, my internet provider at home has an internet black out, so I can't get on until it's fixed XD) Anyway, yesterday I got two of my (early)  birthday presents!! I was playing around with them, trying to get used to them, and setting them up. I got a new iPod and phone by the way if anyone cares, lols! The iPod is very useful to me, because I am a hugeeeee music lover, hence me sometimes putting up my newest obession song at the bottom of my posts. Anyway, it helps me concentrate at night, because the silence is really creepy and distracting

So I have that taken care of, but I can't test it out until Wednesday or Friday night because I work (grrrrrr.....) Actually... I'm busy all week, (school/work-wise)  so I'll just have to make time to write!

Happy Tuesday guys!

Week is over:P

Thank God because I'm ready for it to be over!!!

I couldn't really do anything today because I worked as soon as I got up, till... now-ish, haha! Sure I got up later, but that's not the point XD I've been checking my Facebook stuff, getting ready to write. Hopefully I can get a chapter done before three thirty (that's when the lights have to go out, so the writing stops there XP) Otherwise I can try tomorrow, but I have that day planned for my college writing...

Yeah, I'm pretty lame today. Nothing too special happened to me, sorry guys!!

Hope everyone has a great night! :D

Blehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......

Okay,okay, I know this is suppost to be about books and such, but let me just say this again:

..Blehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

That's how I'm feeling at the moment, and I just wanted to share it. Well, I'm trying to get some more work done, still not half-way through yet. I'm also trying to get some more work done this weekend, and since my phone has stop working it could be a sign to start ignoring people. You know, try and get more stuff done (And if that's the measure it has to be... well I don't like it. I enjoy conversing with people -___-)

At least my book is starting to get scary-ish. I haven't written a horror in awhile, because the last thing I was writing was the end of my Frozen Rain series, which is more love-paranormal. I like horror more though, it's fun trying to come up with the most creepy, digusting, horrifying things as possible. Soooooo... I must always keep with my horror video games-good excuse, right?

So... No texting, video games, or ect. tonight (maybe XP) and try to get some work done!! ...I'll tell you guys how that goes.

Back at school again-__-


Yup:( I'm sad to say but my week plus spring break is now over... What a drag.

The break itself was very nice though, if you guys care, haha! I had a list of goals I needed to accomplish before it ended. I didn't meet all of those goals; however, I managed to get half of them done. One I really wanted to do, but didn't was get half-way through my story. I'm almost there though! (And I know this to be a fact because I write on paper/in notebooks X3)

I'm writing it a little less though because I'm at an awkward spot in my story. I'm starting to transition into the horror elements, but it's kinda hard to make the jump without it being so sudden. It wouldn't be as hard if I wrote on the computer, when I had unlimited space, but I hate staring at a white screen all day-it hurts my sensitive eyes -___- I like being able to flip to my pages, not scroll with a mouse. Also my fingers start to cramp too...

Anyway, anyway! I don't know... I always find a way to make whatever I'm working on ends up fine; still, I can't help but stress out about it. With my luck, I'll run short with my story, and have pages left over at the end. Then I have to add another twist to the story.

Would it be simpler with a computer? Possibly.

Am I going to continue my first drafts in notebooks? Yup! XD

Well... I rambled like always, but the point is that I'm sad about school, I want it to be over, and I'm stressing about the book. All in all, I know it'll be fine in the end:3

And spring break begins!!

Yes, that's right-it's time for my 10 day spring break! (Although a couple of them are already down, but that's okay X3)



There are no excuses! I'm going to get done what needs to be done, which is why I made a list of everything I want to accomplish during the next week! The majority of them are book based, and the one I'm most concerned about is me reaching the half-way mark through the story I'm writing at the moment. I should of been done with it by now -___- which is why I'm making sure I at least get half-way through it! If I can make it even further, well that would be fantastic! I still have until next Tuesday, which is a long time to get some stuff done. Hopefully work won't interfere with my writing too much...

And I believe that's it for now:D

Tomorrow is the start of spring break!

Yeah!!!!!

(And no, I'm not going to Floriday; although I wish I could!)

Lols, I'm excited because that means I have a bunch of free time! Actually I think this is the longest spring break we've ever had in all our tweleve years of school. It starts tomorrow, and then it ends on the 16th, which is a veryyyyy long break!

What to do during this break... What a wonderful question. A better one is figuring out if I'm going to do what I want, or what I should do.

Since I am a pretty lazy person, I tend to stray from my work easily. In my free time when I'm not writing I like to play video games, watch T.V, sleep during the day and etc, etc. Although... I think I want to see how far I can get in the book I'm writing (not editing, that can get done later!!! I hate editing -___-) I'm about half-way through, though with my average lenght of writing a book, I should of been done last month.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo..... Let's see if I can get some writing done >:D

Well I have my stuff with me today!


I feel so much better now, knowing that I have my story and Kindle with me. Yesterday dragged like none other! With me not bringing either to school, I started that short story for the contest I want to enter. It's not close to being done at all, but it's a start! Considering I don't have to work for the rest of the week (thankfully!) I can put more time into it... or procastinate. Thinking I should probably do the second one though:P

First things first though, I want to write my story!! A day without it was just too long D:

And with that, my rambling of the day is over!

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

I left my story and kindle at home!

Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Can you guys feel my disapointment, because it's definetly there. (Although I'm definetly not as sad as the girl in that picture XD)

Considering I hardly do anything at school anymore (since it's the end of the year and all) I usually write or read in my free time. Only today... I can't! That's because silly ol' me left my life and soul at the house apparently. I don't even remember taking them out of my bag, but I guess I did. Oh woe is me-____-

So what am I going to do today?

Well I guess I can write my short story for the contest on Facebook. I've been putting it off for a few weeks now, and I'm thinking that I should probably stop that. I'm not so sure how it will turn out, but I'm hoping it's decent!

Well that's how my day has been, hahahaha! Hoping tomorrow will be better, lols.
