So there is a contest on Figment.com and I decided to enter it because I really loved the prizes and the prompt. So I put an entry up on the site and I just thought I’d put it on here so people knew what I was doing instead of the countless reviews that I should be doing (for which I apologize, I’ve been distracted by many other things). Anyway here is the link, please go read it, and comment or react to it giving feedback, I’ll edit it after the contest has ended like I normally do. But I can’t edit it now because it would be against the rules.
Alright so I have not been very active in anything, whether it be this blog, the roleplay sites that I’m on, and tumblr. Well that is because I have been watching Vlogbrothers videos like a lot of them because there are 977 and I don’t even know how many of those I’ve watched… I think it’s at least a hundred or more. So that is what I’ve been doing and is what I will continue to do until I have watched them all. (I will post links to every single thing I talk about in the bottom of this post). Now the thing called Nerdfighters is basically a huge community of their fans which can be found in multiple ways. There’s youtube, the ning, and a whole bunch of other cool things. I absolutely love them and you should go watch videos because they are fun, granted watching all of them might be a little crazy so don’t do that unless you don’t like sleep or have an insane amount of time.
Alright so that is only one thing that I’ve been doing for the majority of the week is earning Kellebrities points. They are part of Kelly Clarkson’s new rewards system that will give you cool prizes and stuff. Which is awesome because I’m a HUGE fan and cannot afford awesome stuff after already buying all of her cds (which are also in the prizes). From this, I got the most amazing google chrome skin ever! Unless of course someone has one that features any of the things that are in the picture above my homepage.
As before I mentioned that I have other things to be doing, like roleplaying and tumbling (I don’t know if that’s a real word or not but I’m making it one so it is). All of the sites that I roleplay with are on the sidebar in little picture link things (the sites call them affs.). My tumblr is crazy so I wouldn’t really recommend looking at it unless you want to be drawn into my insanity. But if you do there’s a link in the links section of this post.
I also have books that I’m reading, and books I am writing with Camp NaNoWriMo, and grad. parties because I just graduated high school, and college stuff to do, and movies that I’ve seen, and other stuff like that. So yeah I’ve been busy, also there are charities that I’ve been trying to raise money for (unsuccessfully might I add).
That’s what I’ve been doing, and this post is very uninteresting and a huge block of text but I don’t really care because if you love me you’ll read it anyway. The aforementioned links are just below this sentence in a list, and have a wonderful rest of your day and hopefully you’ll see more posts if you care.
Also, since I have shoved so many different teasers about stuff I’m writing, if you want like a chapter posted as a post, I will consider it just comment on this and tell me that you would like to read something and then I’ll make a poll and put it in a post and you can vote on which you would like to read. But for now: comments make for a happy blogger so comment!

Hey so this year the people who host NaNoWriMo are doing Camp NaNowrimo again. This time they’re doing it in June (that’s 14 days away people) and August. It’s basically the same thing as NaNoWriMo, only this one doesn’t interfere with school nearly as much as the other one. Which is why I recommend that if you have ever felt the need to get a story out there, of some sort all you students do it for Camp. It’s still the basic 50,000 word novel in a month, though some people do edits of other novels in 30 days. Or if you’re doing it in August 31 days (that extra day WILL make all the difference). It doesn’t cost anything and it’s put on by the lovely people at the Office of Letters and Light, AND there are goodies that you win if you get the goal. This badge that I have: is one of those incentives. But there are others.
This year I’m editing/rewriting a previous NaNo novel. Also, come donate to Office of Letters and Light (a completely non-profit organization), and sponsor me by going to this website: http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=199667

Or you can got straight to http://www.campnanowrimo.org and sign up, or donate. If you do feel free to check out my story and message me if you need encouragement or a writing partner! Have fun, hope to see you joining me!
So it’s day 13 of NaNoWriMo and I’m technically supposed to be at 21666 and I am only at 6609, but you know what, I don’t really care because I have a college essay to finish and homework that I have to do. But first I thought I’d see if anyone else was having better luck with NaNoWriMo than I was. Anyone have word counts? Or questions?
haha I love how I’m asking this like I have actual followers, well if I do, and you feel like commenting with your questions or comments about NaNoWriMo and it’s AWESOMENESS! I’ll post a new post with the answers to the questions, and reply to the comments on this post. Also, if you want to read my NaNoWriMo so far, I’m keeping it updated on Figment.com and the link is here: http://figment.com/books/167078-The-History-of-Utano and you can also ask questions about that, on here too. When I have time to remember what I need to edit on my word count widgets to get them to look all awesome and stuff I’ll post one for this. Maybe one day, I’ll actually do something with them and get them published, but they have to be good enough first.
Hey all so NaNoWriMo starts this Tuesday and I’m totally freaking out about it! I can’t wait but then again I’m so stressed, I have to finish a college essay and get it edited and then re-write and submit. So I’m a little bit stressed right now because not only that, I have homework on top of it all.
So the point is… If I’m not reviewing books or doing much of anything on here, that’s why… I’m sorry, if you have any special requests you can just post a comment and I’ll try to post on it if I have time. But other than that, I’m going to busy… Sorry again if you’re waiting for something.
So I like this band called Evanescence, and they just came out with a new song! The song is called “What You Want” and it’s off of their new self titled CD that comes out on October 11th. The song can be found on iTunes, and you can listen to it for free on Evanescence’s website at http://www.evanescence.com you can also log in to the site with your wordpress account by using OpenID, what that does I’m not really sure but it’s there. I absolutely love this new song, and all of their other songs as well, so I can’t wait to get my hands on the cd. Too bad I don’t have enough money for it.
But if you do have enough money for it, I would recommend buying it. Or at least checking it out. Just think you may find that you have a new favorite band. I know that even after only listening to one song I was hooked but that was a couple of years ago. In other news I have currently started editting someone else’s story, and signed on for a peer editting project for a friend, and I am making slow progress on my current project. Which I good, but I’m going to have a very busy August and begining of September, especially because I also have to start my college essays.
So I have been editting one of my past works for Camp Nanowrimo, because I had to finish it, and I have found that within the first two paragraphs I must have used the word “that” about 16 times. It was very annoying and repetitive, and a very big problem for my story. So I have been going through and taking out more “that”s. I was wondering if anyone else has found that they have a signature word that they use all the time? So if you do, comment, if you have fun editting stories, comment. If you have anything, comment.
The point is, comment. Because I’m bored, editting is brutal and I need a break from reading the same thing over and over again. I’m not saying that it will not be worth it when it’s finished, because it probably will be worth the work. But as of right now, I am really bored and waiting for dinner, and hoping that this will just magically edit itself. Granted there are a few funny parts, like realizing the little narrator voice keeps switching from British to French to Southern, and noticing that Sammi sounds really really hyper. And other stuff like that.
Well that’s all I can think to say, so comment if you feel like it, back to editting until my eyes bleed. Okay that’s a little bit graphic, so just ignore that and think of cute Unicorns. Unless you’re Astrid from Diana Peterfreund’s Killer Unicorn books, because that would be bad. You know what I’m just going to stop before I completely offend the entire world.
