Okay so, I posted something about this on my writing blog but I figured I should post this here too. I’m super bored and would love writing prompts because the site I used to get mine from has been sort of lax with the prompt up keep. So if you can think of any prompts that would be fun or interesting it’d be cool if you submitted them to my Ask Box. The Ask Box can be found here.

Hey so I just got a new computer and I’m still trying to figure out how to use it. But now that I have it I will probably be posting more on here than I normally do. Sorry I haven’t been posting, but I have another blog that I update more, and I have other things that I have to do before I post. Also, I haven’t really been doing anything all that interesting so doing this is probably just stupid and not interesting.
So this week and next week is pretty much all tests and midterms for me, and I must say, so far they’ve been pretty boring and easy. With the exception of the Pre-calc midterm that I did without a calculator. But there is still the AP Chem test that I have to take so that should be interesting.
Other than that all I have is a contest for Figment which ends on the 25th. They are fun contests, you need an account to be able to participate and a few friends to read through your stuff and heart it for you. I find them fun and entertaining, if you go on the contests page you can go vote for some of them once you get an account.
Well back to studying for stuff that I don’t have to study for… Hm… I should probably go write my letter of meta-cognition… But first I’m going to self-lessly promote my roleplaying site that I’m on… go to the side column and click on the little picture with the WM on it… it should say War Mage when you click on it. It’s fun and Tamora Pierce-y
So it’s new years eve, and I’m sitting here on my computer doing absolutely nothing… So I figured I’d post about what my crazy family is doing. My sister has two friends over and they are being entirely crazy. At first they were sitting on the floor and watching “I Still Psycho” or whatever it’s called, the new iCarly episode. And they were like SCREAMING… It was more scary than the show was.
Anyway so now I’m watching the two parts to the Sanctuary season finale. I LOVE it so much! First you have a depressed Nikola, who is so adorable and in need of a hug from Helen. Though I do feel bad for Henry, he has to deal with him. And then there’s that kiss, but that’s giving too much away, so I’ll stop there.
I hope you’re having a better New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day for those in time zones that are ahead of us. I shall be watching Sanctuary and reading books in hopes to finish a few before the new year. Why? Well because of the Goodreads challenge that you can find by clicking on the picture in my sidebar. Well Happy 2012 all, see you in the new year!
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.
So I just got my Pottermore Email, and I’ve made my way through the first chapter of the first book on Pottermore. It is really very interesting because some of the stuff that’s on there is interesting, and it made me have to go read the first book again. In re-reading the first book, I have discovered that Aunt Petunia is blonde. I know that I read the book before I saw the movie but the fact that they came out at the same time probably just made me think that she was brunette.
I have also started re-reading The Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce, and I noticed that Jonathan has a beard. I never noticed that before, and I never would have pictured him with a beard. So my question is, has this ever happened to anyone? Have you ever pictured a character one way, and then realized that that’s totally not how he or she is described? Comment with your answers, if you give a character name, title and author please? I’m always looking for good suggestions…
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.
So me and my sister were bored and we decided to bake a cake. Now the baking went really well. Until it decided to completely fall apart. So we tried our best to patch it up with the frosting that we were putting on it. The result? Me making a complete mess, and ending up doing the whole thing by myself. I mananged to piece it back together quite nicely don’t you think?
Alright so the goal of Nanowrimo is to write 50,000 words in a month, but this month has 31 days. So I started a week late like I usually do, and I have found that as i continue to do this my total word count goes down… It’s very weird. Anyway what’s the point of this? Nothing really I was just really bored.
I guess I should stop rambling about nothing important. But first I will say this, Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story was really very inspiring and if you need inspiration for anything I suggest that you watch it because I’m sure you will find it interesting regardless of whether you are a Harry Potter fan or not. That is what got me a new burst of inspiration for my Camp Nanowrimo story, which i hope will turn into something more than a stupid project that doesn’t end up going anywhere. If it does end up with some sort of following then I will probably make another post and share where you can find it or something… If you’re interested please say so!! I would love hear it an might just put a sneak peak on this site or my LiveJournal. This project is what the word count if for. I’ll make another one for the other project that I will be finishing in August.
Anyway, to all of you writers out there have fun writing your hearts out!! And I suggest Camp Nanowrimo for August, or actual Nanowrimo for November. Where can those be found? here: http://www.nanowrimo.org or http://www.campnanowrimo.org .
So the writing competition that I do every November is now offering a new opportunity to do Nanowrimo, just in the summer. This new opportunity is called Camp Nanowrimo. It is being offered in July and August this year, but the July one is already five days in. You can still sign up but I wouldn’t recommend it if you need all of the days to write. Now you’re probably thinking “Why would anyone be so crazy as to do this for three months? Isn’t one enough?”. Well the answer to that is, I am probably partially insane for doing this, but I find it quite fun. It is also really helpful if you are a nerd and feel like getting all of that creativity hiding in you flowing.
The site for this is http://www.campnanowrimo.org and it is not as good as regular nanowrimo only because it is brand new. I suggest you wait for August version because they say that the full site will be up and running. And if you have friends who would be interested in it you should totally get them to join! Also if you have any extra cash that you feel like donating, they accept tax deductable donations that will help make the site all that much better.
