Happy Halloween!

Well, well... Halloween is finally here. Wow. I'm not doing much for it. Not this year at least. To me it's almost just like any other day. I have thoughts of paranormal fun in my head almost every day of the year. I watch paranormal horror movies frequently, and I read Fantasy and Paranormal Romance... a lot.

So... what am I thinking about most today?

What happens at 12:01am tonight... National Novel Writing Month!

6 hours remaining...

Happy Halloween everyone. Be safe and have fun.

Today I wrote 771 words. Yay! I read a great quote today by E.L. Doctorow on the "70 Days of Sweat" webpage.

“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
Isn't that great? But, I'm starting to get sick and feverish. What in the world?

Oh well. That's one of the reasons this is such a short blog!

Day three of "The Seventy Days of Sweat: Writing Challenge"

Today was the first day that I participated and I managed to get done 800 words. Hooray! I have sweated for Sven! (That's a great name.) It's pretty good since I didn't know which story I'd work on until I sat down and tried to spot which would be easiest to dive into on the spot. I decided and am feeling great about it! I'm getting "the flow." =)

Plus, I'm only 1450 words behind now for the Sven says Sweat! challenge. Double yay! I've made progress!

I'm now off to get some sleep, and well work on plotting my National Novel Writing Month project for November 1st. I'm a crazy cat.


After going by my critique partner's blog today, I have been lured by Sven to sweat. How can anyone resist him? Yum! But seeing as how it's just after midnight and the event started on Oct. 15th, I'm 1500 words behind! lol Hooray! A goal.

I'm probably going to work on my plotting now though for when Nov. 1st comes. Then the heavy duty work will have to begin, but yes, I'm starting a new project as opposed to working on an unfinished work like I thought before. This is probably a good thing since it's been a while since I've worked on something really new.

Well, I'm going to bed now! I have midterms tomorrow. Eewww...

Well, yesterday went alright. I wrote around 300 words, which is okay, but not as much as I would have liked. I also got sick. Icky. Oh well though. I'm still pressing through. I registered for the Breakthrough Novel Award today for the novel I finished and am now editing. Part of me wonders if I'm insane for trying to get it all polished between now and the 10th, but it's worth a shot.

I'm going to go back to resting now. I'll try to get some more writing done and post another entry later to get back on track. =)

Monday, October 1

Here we go. My first blog of October. Today I started on a new novel and wrote about 7 or so pages. Hooray! I'm excited about this novel. Its one that I worked on previously, but only got to around 12k words. Now I'm picking up where I left off and editing what I had, since it was the first novel I ever wrote, and I had a lot to learn back then, but so far, so good.

Transitioning into this heroine's head is slightly harder than I thought. In my last novel the heroine was more of a force to be reckoned with, as opposed to this character who is...not weaker, but...more fragile. I'm going to try to get out the first draft of the novel this month, and then next month participate in National Novel Writing Month. It's a great challenge and fun. Hey, you write 50k words in 30 days. What could be better? =)

Well. I'm feeling very positive and cheery now, so I'm going to go to bed now.

More tomorrow.
