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.

I See You’ve Put Your Pen Down…

Because it’s hard. Because you’re busy. Because the words don’t come to you, because you’ll never be good enough, because you’re a worthless, hopeless, loser.

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.

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 […]

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!?!?!?
