|3 days, 27 beers, 500 dollars.|
After five days of no reading and no writing, I'm really itching to get a workin'. (But of course now that I'm home all I can think about is cleaning my room.) So here's my plan: today I am going to take turns between writing and cleaning, to appease both sides. And for the month of August, I am going to NaNoWriMo it up!
I'm not going to follow the normal NaNoWriMo rules, because they are too extreme for me. I secretely have my own goals:
- Write every day
- Write 600 words a day
- Write 1000 words a day
I'm also going to be working on two stories: Malevolent Soul, and Dreamless, which I just started brainstorming last week. Dreamless is my shameless magical-boarding-school knockoff. But I'm okay with that. The main writing will be on Malevolent Soul, but I think it will be nice to have a break every once in a while to work on something else.
Wish me luck! Time to write! (And time to clean...) Tomorrow, it's back to real life.
Oh yeah! I won a contest online! It was amazing. It involved me typing my name and e-mail. But I got a kickass set of hardcovers from Fantasy Cafe. The Relic Master series, by Catherinne Fisher. I highly recommend you check out the site. In addition to being a great review site, she holds lots of giveaways. Now don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of putting my name in the hat even when I'm not that interested in the books, but I'm actually really excited for these. Fisher is the author of Incarceron, which I wanted to read but never got around to it. Anyway, check out her blog, because it rocks.
|So excited! And they're HARDCOVERS!|
