HAAARRRDDDDD

November is ending. While this brings me closer to VACATION and FUN, it also brings me to the end of NaNoWriMo…. My grand total of words is so grand, I am not repeating it on here. In my honest defense; Writing. Is. Haaaaardddddddddd. (imagine that word coming from a five year old as she slumps […]

IT’S A TRAP

“IT’S A TRAP. Run. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.” Plock stared at the floating words, his antennae moving furiously. The human civilization was soon to discover the internet; he had to warn them. No race was safe. “STOP. DO NOT DO IT. IT WILL EAT YOU ALIVE.” His sucker moved to click “send”, but there was a SCHLOOP. […]

DRUMbeats

(dedicated to Nick) The crisp blue air smothered her lungs. The first warning bell rang through the quad and the students trampled over the grass, a constant, moving, chattering mass. Crushed grass smelled like a tangy November. Blue, red, and vintage rag-cloth bags hung off backs like so many ladybug shells as they disappeared into classrooms. The […]

The 3 Minute Game

This is a game I play every time I want to get something over with, something that I’ve been procrastinating on for a while since I reeeeeeeeeallly really really don’t want to do it. It is called the 3 Minute Game. Sound simple? It is. Choose one thing that doesn’t require thought – chores, like the dishes and cleaning […]

Procrastination and New Years

IT IS THE YEAR 2013!!!! Also: This post was purposefully posted late TO MAKE A POINT. Before I wish you all anything, you need to know this; New Years Eve is a general term; yesterday was the last day of the 2012th year of the Gregorian calendar. Today is the first day of the next […]

Thankful and Sappy: Goodbye 2012

I really think that this part of the year – the end – is when we should give thanks. It’s around this time that we look back and recall the crazy, hectic lifetime that’s passed us by, represented solely by a number. Also, we congratulate each other. For making it to the New Year – […]

Greetings; Back from Inertia

I suppose I’m back. Hello. How are you all? What is that you say? Where have I been gone? Oh, come on, enough about ME. Tell me what YOU have been up to. Didn’t you hear me? Don’t ask me about NaNoWriMo! Don’t ask me about my 100,000 words! This is a once in a […]

May The Writer: Famous After Death?

May rolled over lazily on the bed, looking up at the ceiling. “Sarah?” “Yeah?” her friend replied from her spot at the computer desk. “Think people will recognize my true talent when I’m dead, you know, like Shakespeare?” “….People loved Shakespeare.” She sat up, voice becoming high. “You know what I mean! Like, it seems […]

rewriting

It suddenly occured to me to go back and check the wordcount for the story that I am rewriting. Here was my first thought. WHAT!?!?!? DO I REALLY PLAN ON REWRITING 86,283 FREAKING WORDS!?!?!? And THAT, dear friends, isn’t even the COMPLETE story! THE COMPLETE STORY – *cries* – THE COMPLETE STORY IS LONGER! Okay. […]
