3… 2… 1… WRITE!

Hey guys, I’m writing a book! So I know I’ve been neglectful lately but I have some very good reasons. Here they are, not necessarily listed in order of importance.

  1. I’m writing a book! Ok, technically, I’m writing two books! I’ve taken a break from the first one to go ahead with the one I’m writing for NaNoWrimo (Nanowrimo.org), which means you try to write a novel in the month of November. The goal is a minimum of 50,000 words. So obviously I have been obsessed with my novel. My obsession follows the line of, Step 1. Overconfidence: “OMG this book is AMAZING, I am going to be the next JK Rowling!” Step 2. Total defeat: “I suck. I suck so bad. I am the worst writer ever. No one has ever written garbage as bad as mine.” Step 3. Boosting yourself back up. “Maybe that’ll be why I get published. No one has EVER been as bad as me. THAT’S something cool right? I mean E. L. James was published!” Step 4. Acceptance: “I don’t even suck bad enough to be the worst. What am I doing with me life. E. L. James was published and I’m not.” Step 5. Screw it: “I’M WRITING IT ANYWAYS! SCREW EVERYONE. I SHALL PREVAIL!” Step 6. Cry yourself to sleep: “[Intense weeping]” Step 7. Coffee: “[Types furiously]”. Step 8: Begin at Step 1. Again.
  2. Traveling! Ok I haven’t been travelling around the world but I did go to New York for the first time! It was amazing! The food was great, the people were surprisingly friendly. and I had a wonderful time!
  3. Bubbles is getting married! This means wedding parties and wedding showers and international wedding showers since her fiance is from New York City (what what!). So there’s been a lot of stuff happening and going down and though I’ve wanted to reach out I haven’t.

Now, what I should do right now is write a wonderful article on life and learning and love and yada yada yada. However, I’ve written over 25,000 words in 14 days and I have another 25,000 words to go so… My brain has turned to mush. I love you all, please don’t forget me.
