~ Christmas was awesome ~ Anticipating 2017 ~

Hey guys! Hope you all had an awesome Christmas, I most definitely did, hanging out with my family, probably consuming way too much sugar, laughing a lot, watching the Nativity Story on Christmas Eve and Luther on Christmas  and being totally amazed by just how inexplicably epic Jesus is.

(Random note: Apparently the 12 Days of Christmas don't start until after Christmas? Well, technically December 25 to January first, and I HAD NO IDEA AND NEITHER DID MY MOM OR RACHEL so, thanks for that Mary  XD)

(Random note 2.0. This post might be a bit long because apparently a lot of stuff happened)

I got the most epic writer shirt, (I know I  really should've taken a pic of it sorry), I got a book of poetry as pictured above, a purse, and a bunch of needlefelting supplies from my parents as well as other various bits of awesomeness.


Speaking of which, I was soooo excited for my mom to open her gift, I spent almost two weeks needlefelting it for her, she loved it, And no I'm trying to brag, I was kinda embarrassed with the amount of attention it got on her Facebook, *blushes* I'm just happy that she loved it because I worked really hard on it.

Felting is also the same way I made Sare her whale for her birthday, (Which is the very first thing I made cause I randomly learned how to do it in the middle of November), basically you use this special needle thingy and stab wool with it and make epic stuff, it's super fun.

ALL THE SNOW IS BASICALLY GONE. Yeah you guys, you can see grass outside, so my sis and I did the only logical thing to do since it was probably the last nice day of the year (Like 52 degrees outside) And went and got frozen coffees.
Guess what, coffee makes you better at art, and by art I mean writing or literally just any kind of art, okay, my sister told me that in the Renaissance,, basically everybody started drinking coffee they imported and that's when they started to become better at art. *grins because this proves that coffee really does make you a better writer*

I want to thank you guys so much for all the questions you asked for my Q&A video in my last post,  I seriously didn't expect to get that many questions (eeep!) I'm so excited to do the video! Still kinda nervous about how awkward I'm going to be talking in front of a camera though...

I'M SO EXCITED FOR 2017, guys, just, for so many reasons, I'm excited. For a lot of things.

Any tips on talking in front of a camera? 
Are you excited for 2017?

~ Blogaversary ~ Q&A coming up ~

That's right guys, The Relentless Daydreamer is one year old today, today is the day I wrote my first post on here,
and I completely forgot until exactly 5 05 PM today 

Don't ask, I've been busy with Christmas stuff and today was really weird because it felt like Friday even though it wasn't, 
Okay, so today is my official blogavesary, but nobody really knew about my new blog until Jan 1st, so I'm going to be doing my official post then because it feels more official to everyone else, y,know? XD
Some of you guys may know this isn't my first blog, nope, I had another one that I started back when I was 11, but that was on my mom's google account and I sincerely hope that none of you guys try to go finding it because it's seriously so cringe-worthy.

So, I mentioned several weeks ago that I had a surprise-sort-of-thing planned, right?

I'm going to be doing a Q&A/my first ever video!
*nervous laugh* which of course means talking in front of a camera, which I've never done before, answering whatever questions you guys throw at me in the comments. I'll probably have the video up around January 1st, (And no I am not going to make  a joke about not doing it until next year XP)

I've got something else planned too, but you guys will have to wait for the video post to find out. XD

So go ahead, ask away! Literally just ask me anything you can think of, the randomest, craziest, awesomest  thing that pops into your head.

Oh, and btw, IT'S 3 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS YOU GUYS. 

Are you ready for Christmas? 
Did you happen to know about my other blog? 
What questions do you have?? XD

~ Cast in ice ~ A poem ~ Random life things ~

The air is cool and sharp as it fills your lungs

Snowflakes gently cascading
So still, too perfect, silently exilherating 
Every step hesitates
To destroy the fallen snow
Like treading among a fairy world
One that you no longer know
Cast in ice
Paths aglow
Treacherous 
Beautiful 
But cold 

Because what else are you supposed to do when it snows for literally days straight? You write poems about snow, better yet, write poems about like, fire or something warm, I dunno, *shrugs*

I was meaning to post all weekend, and I'm not going to say I didn't have time because I totally did, I just had a hard time getting photos and didn't know what to post about.
I literally don't even know what to post about half the time, most of this stuff just comes to me on the spot. XD

Basically it snowed a lot, like 1 1/2 feet in like a week. O.o that's a lot of snow you guys.

Lately I've been brainstorming for my blogaversary, which is technically this month but could also be in January I guess, you see I started working on the blog in December last year but kept it a secret until January, so my blog will be legitimately one year old this month, I'll probably do a post for it next month though, not saying anything yet, you guys will just have to wait and see what I have planned.

As for how my short story has been going, eh, *shrugs* I was excited about it but have been having a hard time getting into it, I'm not used to writing contemporary and stuff. :|
Also, how many times is one supposed to edit a first draft? More than twice? How do you know when your book is completely edited?

12 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS YOU GUYS

Also, 35 followers?!?? Thanks so much guys. <3

~ Blurry and beautiful lights ~

Okay, so you know how I planned to take a break from writing after Nano because I wrote two novels in five months and everything?

Yeah, well, that didn't exactly end up happening.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF WHEN I'M NOT WRITING OKAY.
I mean like of course I do other stuff, but I guess I've just gotten so used to always writing, I'm still taking a break from my main novels because I'm most definitely not starting a new book until I've edited one of my first drafts at least once, and I've never edited anything before so I'm not gonna start doing that in the middle of December.

So I spontaneously threw together an idea for a short story/novelette or whatever you wanna call it, it's contemporary which I've never really done before, it involves coffee, some whimsical Christmas elements incorporated into it, and also cats, because cats are important.

My dad, sister and I went Christmas tree shopping on Saturday, which involved going to 5 different stores and buying peppermint Oreos, (the best ever <333) We actually did end up getting a new tree and put it up the next day after my sis got home from work AND IT STARTED SNOWING RIGHT BEFORE WE DID AND SNOWED ALL DAY AND IT WAS SO MAGICAL.
And guess what, it melted, mostly anyway, -_- BUT IT'S SUPPOSED TO SNOW LIKE ALL WEEK according to the weather and EEEP that makes me way happier than it does some people (aka people I don't understand)

Also my sister and I made cookies for National Cookie Day. XD

So...umm...I actually sent all of my new, unedited, insanity-ridden novel to Sare last night, and then forgot the next morning, then remembered.
I still can't believe I'd actually let another human being read it...
I mean, I wrote it in a month, during Nano, it's a m e s s but I guess I can't hate it that much if I didn't die pressing the 'send' button. XP
As for letting anybody else beta-read for either of my novels in the future...*remembers just how messy my first drafts are* I think I'd rather wait until they're at least somewhat edited.

Have you ever tried peppermint Oreos?
Ever beta-read for someone/had people beta-read for you?

~ Monthly/Nanowrimo Wrap-up ~

 The artsy-ness of blank, dead trees is only interesting for so long you know, I hope it snows again soon. 

 Heyy guys, ready for a crazy/nonsensical/typed up at the last minute end-of-the-month post? Good because that's exactly what I'm doing today, because obviously aside from the fact that November was crazy it was also my first time EVER doing Nanowimo, annnnd the month before Christmas so yeah let's just get right to it then. 

hahaha....no such thing. XP to be honest sometimes I feel like I barely have a life outside of writing in general. 

Anyway, here are some random things that happened this month, sort of but not exactly in order. 

Aimlessly wandering around Target with sisters 
Waking up early and making Instagram-worthy donuts 
Gazing at the supermoon and being overwhelmed by the dreaminess of it 
Successfully making perfect Italian meringue Macarons 
For some reason went a whole month without posting any poems but still wrote a whole bunch

HACKING MARY'S BLOG WHEN SHE REACHED 50K, seriously, that was sooo much fun and 
her reaction was the best. <3 

Getting lost in Hobby Lobby and concert-attending and Fridays 
Randomly learning all about needle felting and making Sarah a mini whale for her birthday. XD 
Baking, a lot 

Daydreaming about Christmas 
S N O W
waiting for it to snow again 
Not brushing my hair for unexplained reasons
Procrastinating a lot on Pinterest 
Sort of casually despising people's blatant misuse of the word 'legit' no offense anyone. 
Thanksgiving 
Me and my sis cleaning our room so we can decorate it 
Way to many sassy conversations with Sarah to even count
My sister, mom, and me all having the exact same pair of boots and endlessly getting eachother's mixed up. 

Trying to demonstrate the posture of a banana while walking through Target with my mom. Don't worry it wasn't half as weird as it sounds 

Being happy with life
While simultaneously overcoming countless irrational fears 


Soooo as it turns out I actually do have quite a bit of a life outside of my fictional worlds, XD I just tend to get so absorbed in those, anyways, these are the non-writing-related things I could remember this month from off the top of my head.





*unintelligible screeching* 

I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE I WON NANO AND FINISHED MY BOOK IN A MONTH. I finished before 1:00 PM, absolutely thrilled and also starving. I really can't believe I didn't totally fail this month though, like, this is amazing. 

I think the most stressed out I was about Nano was at the very beginning, not the end, or the middle, mostly because during the first week, I was still dealing with an unfinished novel that I had devoted the past four months too and have become more attatched to than I even realized, I finished Contempt on November 5th with nearly 70K (eeeeeeep!) That glorious mess is currently awaiting editing which I'm actually strangely excited for. XD

The rest? The rest was just pure craziness, light nights, lots of coffee and sugar, insane word wars, (HOW ON EARTH DOES A HUMAN BEING WRITE 2,000 WORDS IN 25 MINUTES?!?!?) casually loathing my new novel and angsty characters, 5k days, procrastination, playlists and pinterest storyboards. It was all truly epic, so grateful for all my awesome writing buddies. XD

Who knows, maybe someday I'll actually tell you guys something about my book(s) but that day is not today, sorry, don't be offended though because seriously only like a few other humans have ever read any of my writing and I just about died showing stuff to them so yeah.

I FINISHED TWO NOVELS THIS MONTH, Two poorly-plotted, messy, imperfect novels, but I think that's pretty impressive all the same, and they're mine, and I cannot believe I can actually call myself a novelist now, not even an aspiring novelist but like the actual writer of multiple novels...oh my goodness.

P.S. Dark and stormy nights make for the best writing nights. 
Ahem, well obviously next month is December which means CHRISTMAS. But it's also going to be the first month I get a break from writing since like...I don't even remember, I've been working on the first drafts of my two novels since July, and while writing is obviously my life and I absolutely love it, December seems as good a time as any to take a little break, then perhaps in Janurary I'll start editing Contempt, and besides, I've barely read at all or been able to work on other things in the past several months so I'm looking forward to that as well.

Also my sister and I were thinking about  doing a 25 day Christmas photo challenge together, so expect lots of photos if that happens. XD

Spending time with family

Christmas shopping

Daydreaming about snow

Possibly posting some poems I wrote this month.

Figuring out what do with myself now that my novel(s) are finished, the first drafts anyway.


Basically being super excited about December in general 

~~~
Hope you enjoyed this post despite the undeniable awkwardness and rambling.  I had a lot of fun writing it (Finding motivation...eh, not so much, most of my motivation to actually get this post written required brutal pestering from Sarah, *glares* XD) 

Did you finish Nano? (because weather or not you reached 50K you still WROTE and that is awesome) Was November insane for you? ARE YOU AS EXCITED FOR DECEMBER AS I AM

~ As of late ~

 - my sis found these at Hobby Lobby the other day, aren't they just adorable? -

IT SNOWED YOU GUYS

It always happens, I always get super excited when it first snows and my mom thinks I'm a total weirdo for it.
Me: *walking out of the shower, whispering* 'Yasss'
Mom: *questioning look*
Me: *eyes wander toward the window* Yasss
Mom: *glares*
Me: *smiles*

And no I don't have any pics, I tried to get some but didn't like how they turned out and I was wearing short sleeves and the roof was dripping on me and so yeah.

It's freezing cold out now but snowing anymore, I hope it doesn't all melt even though my mom probably does, everything is just so dead and ugly right now.

Things you google during Nano;
how many hours can you go without sleep 

Okay so apparently it's 96 hours according to the internets with is obviously always right about everything, ( ;P ) And so that's like the equalvilent of like 4 days.

So I probably won't die.

(FYI, I was awake for about 17 hours) 

It was about midnight when I decided to finally stop procrastinating on Pinterest (one of the things I do  best) And pull out my flashdrive just as everyone else was going to bed, I pulled up my word document, and basically just sat there silently laughing at myself because I had no idea what I was doing.

Getting my words written was actually surprisingly easy that night though, I consumed a lot of coffee so I think that may have had something to do with it, but you know those scenes that just come to you out of nowhere? Like, this wasn't the scene you were planning to write when you sat down, but it just sort of happened and just totally works and you feel awesome writing it.  

I'VE GOT  31K BTW.  I'm planning on taking a break from writing stuff for a majority of December, I mean, I've been consistently working on my novels for 5 months straight, I think I deserve a break, XP, after that...I dunno, maybe I write something new, I have more story ideas than I know what to do with, including sequels and third books and various other ideas that I have lovely aesthetic Pinterest boards for but don't even know when/if they'll ever get written.

I wrote a song for my new novel/trilogy today, it's a total secret right now though so I'm not saying anything about it. XD

~ Other random life things ~

Apparently my rabbit is obsessed with kiwis. 
Being super excited for December 
Coffee
Being totally okay with the fact that my novel is a mess
Cookie dough
Crazy conversations and getting caught up in chocolate wars 
Wandering around Hobby Lobby for two hours 
Wanting to use Nano as a perfectly legitimate excuse for everything
Being happy
Constant daydreaming

Is it snowing where you live? Do you like snow? What's the longest you've ever gone without sleep? Have you had any Nano-induced breakdowns yet? What's your word count?

~ Moonlight ~ Current feelings about my novel ~

There was a supermoon the other night, and I wished it could be like that everynight.
There were actual moonbeams streaming through the forest, like, in the most dramatic way that touched my writer soul, (I find myself describing moonlight a lot in my stories)

These pictures were hard to take and didn't nearly do justice the beauty of it, standing in my bare feet on the back deck, camera in my hand. I went out later after taking pictures too, when it was higher in the sky. Just standing there in the moonlight, it was kinda magical.


***

How would I sum up my novel so far?

-  Incredibly sassy dragons 
- Much confusion
- Darkness
- Feels

I'm bad at summaries. XD 

I'm about halfway to 50K right now, weather or not Dragon' Blood will be finished by then, I guess I'll just have to wait and see, right now, I'm actually really enjoying Nano and all it's glorious insanity. 

Oh, and I made an aesthetic for my book recently, I've never made anything like this for any of my stories before soooo...*points* 



So I realized today that Nano is half over already O_o 
Also, Christmas is in like 40 days. 

Let that sink in.

I have nothing else to say, I can't be creative when I'm hungry.

~ Silver silhouettes ~ Thoughts about life ~

I feel like Autumn always disappears way too fast, like everything will be green and then for bam everything is colorful for a few weeks and then it's cold and all the trees start to get all bare and suddenly everyone is talking about Christmas. XP 

I went for a walk last night as it was getting dark and the moon was peeking through the trees, (on another note, the moon is way harder to take pictures of than you would think) I wondered if the people who drove by thought I was odd for wandering the side of the road with my camera as the darkness was falling, pointing my camera across the road and at the trees behind someone's house,  as if I care. XD My fingers were freezing cold by the time I was done taking pics, totally worth it though. 

I was worried that tapping into the emotions of my new novel would be harder since I just finished my other one, it actually hasn't been that hard so far though, having only two main characters is definitely more simple than switching between (*pauses to count*) 5 POV's and managing like 6 subplots all in one story. 

Other than that there is still the issue that my MC is angry and depressed and won't tell me why and someone please remind me to write a more lighthearted story next time because this is giving me emotional issues. 

My current word count is..uh...far from impressive, XP I'm trying not to stress to much over it though...
(whispers: 12,515 words exactly, hoping to reach 15k today, not as much as I would've liked to have written by now, I'm determined to reach 50K this month though, and even if I don't, I wrote and I'm still writing and that's what matters I guess) 

Word Sprinting helps a ton for getting words written, Nutella latte's help too, (the advantages of having a barista for a sister, even if it was just an experiment, I will gladly drink all her experiments, XD) 

Do you like going for walks alone? 
What's your word count so far? 
Do you drink coffee while you write?

~ Donuts ~ 5k1day ~ Nano update ~

So I made donuts this morning cause for the first time in forever (don't you dare start singing okay) I actually got up early enough, mainly because my sister woke me up cause we had to go let our neighbors dogs out but I completely forgot and then I remembered that I really really hate having to get up early. XP

For someone who really loves sleep you'd think I wouldn't stay up late.

But signing up for Nano basically means sleep deprivation and caffeine addiction sooo

Really though, at midnight on the first day of Nano I was typing madly away at the computer in the dark and I'm pretty sure the main reason I didn't stop until 3:00 am was because of coffee.

Basically, here's how Nano started:

October 31st:

 At around 8:30; sitting at the computer plotting, we were literally counting down the hours until midnight, feeling totally ready with caffeine and confidence and ignoring the fact that I probaby should've plotted more, (YES HANNAH YES YOU SHOULD HAVE) 

Sometime around 9:00 *remembers we need the laptop to stream Poldark which I was going to skip watching so I could write* 
*minor anxiety* 
*mentally plots while watching Poldark* definitely not the most effective method for plotting.

Finally got the computer back at around 11:20 as everyone else was going to bed, I was literally flailing about and super excited XD

11:30;  *slowly descending into insanity and acknowledgeing the fact that literally none of us are sane* (It's been officially confirmed that we are all insane)
12:01 all the chaos, it literally happened right there. NANO HAPPENED RIGHT THERE. I reached a little over 1k before 1:30.

And, on another note, I most definitely did not have a breakdown on the first day of Nano, after furiously pushing through the 5k I wrote, and actually seriously considered going rogue and writing something totally unplotted just because I had a strong genuine dislike for the beginning of my new story (aka it was all wrong and absolutely not going according to the plot) annnd yeah, don't worry, I didn't throw my new novel to the wind, I'm working through my new story and focusing on just getting it written and trying not to stress over how behind on my word count I am.

The fact that I always overthink dramatically when it comes to beginnings is of no help whatsoever. XP

^^ sorry about the angstiness of my ramblings, ahem, moving on.

I'm working through my new story, working on catching up, focusing on the fact that Nano isn't about perfection, BUT HOW DO ALL YOU GUYS HAVE CRAZY AMOUNTS WRITTEN ALREADY I DON'T UNDERSTAND. >.<

~ Various end-of-October ramblings ~


So yes, this post is basically a messy mash-up of a monthly wrap-up and angsting over Nano and procrastinating cause I should be plotting/writing xD

Ahem, Nano starts in just three days. So obviously anxiety currently reigns amidst the blogging world. I'm trying to ignore the fact that I probably didn't plot as much as I should have this month, I feel confident enough though, *forced nervous smile*

I'll probably be sharing a little bit about my new novel in my next post, but for now, no one really knows much about it, I've got an epic storyboard tho.

Anyway...what happened this month you may ask?

Writing/Nano prep this month, if anything, was insane. 
that's really all I have to say
there is no sanity
There is only dragons and naming characters and ink-stained hands and tea-drinking and lurking the late hours of the night typing away with my only light being the computer screen. 

I created a playlist for my book to, not for listening to while I write but just to help get in touch with the emotions of the story, If I listen to something with lyrics I get distracted and don't write anything at all and spend the next hour on YouTube and then the next thing you know I'm on some random channel learning how to make cupcakes with edible geodes, xD true story. 

I almost let my blog turn actually turn into a poetry blog, I didn't exactly mean for that to happen, it sorta just...did. ;P 

*has nothing else to say about blogging*

Other than Sarah and I tweaked some design stuff that needed to be fixed. xP


I WENT TO A CONCERT A COUPLE WEEKS AGO. *sigh* oh goodness, it was awesome, (also the first concert I had ever been to) My sister and I went to see Jeremy Camp and Citizen Way. Seriously the way it makes you feel is just...completely and totally alive and seriously amazing.

Had a lot of weird conversations with Sarah xD

Wandered through the forest because it's so undeniably majestic in the fall *sighs dreamily*

ACTUALLY FULFILLED ALL MY GOALS FOR OCTOBER other thannn reading Lord of The Rings *shakes head* I actually barely read anything this month other than beta-reading for Sarah and re-reading 12 chapters of my sister's book.

Oh yeah tomorrow is National Chocolate Day so you have to eat chocolate *nods* *throws chocolate at you*

Oh yeahhh and because the introverted extrovert is such an epic photographer we had a photoshoot when I went to her house the other day, xD (and to those of you who have recently asked if I'm Julia and Sarah's sister, I'm not, lol! Although  Sarah and I have been repeatedly told we look like alike, xD)

~ ~ ~ 
As always, I humbly thank you for tolerating my ramblings, ;P byyyeee!

~ Bursts of color ~

Leaves crunching beneath your feet
Rustling in the breeze
Chill breeze in your hair 
Crisp coolness in the air 
Cinnamon and spices
Raindrops and thunderstorms
Lattes and concerts 
Nano and coffee shops
Contrasts
Again hot and cold
Bursts of color against a calm sky 
Hoodies and Converse 
Slouchy hats and scarves
Caramel and pumpkins 
It's like the whole world transforms
Before winter
A cozy hush
A poetic trance 
Everything's painted
And beautiful 
And bright
Even though 
All the leaves are dying
It's okay
Because they'll return 
When snow falls and fire burns
I know
They'll always return. 

- Autumn always makes me feel really poetic and inspired, I went for a walk today and took these pics, also, on a random note, I REACHED 50K!!! *squeals* My goal was to reach that by the 20th, I met that goal yesterday it was seriously crazy because I never would've thought I could've gotten this far with this story, now just comes ending this messy thing so I can write for Nano, *cringes* guys, I'm scared. 
NANO IS IN 9 DAYS CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW CLOSE WE ARE WHAT HAPPENED TO OCTOBER. 

p.s. Apparently yesterday was National Writing Day. It seems perfectly fitting that that was the day I reached 50K, even though I had no idea at the time. xD

~ Unnoticed ~

I like noticing things
That I wonder
If anyone else sees
Coffee brewing, fingers clicking over a keyboard
The forest taking a deep breath as the sun rises
The wind whispering as it sets
Opening a new book
Your heart leaping with a sense of adventure as you step into a scene
The moment your eyes meet the first page
When your cat jumps on your bed
Without you having to drag them there
I like the moments
When you feel calm and warm and safe and peaceful
I like
When things are okay
I like the little things.

~HANNAH~

(I wanted to write something deep and emotional and awesome but I 've been trying for days to write a post and I wrote this instead because it's how I feel right now,)

~ Writing + Plotting update ~

My sister went to a Skillet concert last week and got me this and oh my goodness i still can't get over how epic it is. 
hehe...um...don't ask. 

..So as far as I'm concerned...my Nano novel is gonna be epic. XD
I know, I know, I'm so humble. :P 
I hope it's going to be epic, I've gotten quite a bit of plotting done so far and based on how much I've been writing lately, I can totally pull of the 1,500 words a day thing, yeah, totally,
Oh, and this book might actually end up being the beginning of a trilogy (?!?) I'm just getting so many ideas it's insane, I'm really excited though. 

Speaking of writing...uh...I kinda lost the main plot to Contempt, if I even had one in the firsr place...I almost feel like I killed off what might've been the main plot and then what's left of that is strung vaguely through the 4 crazy messy subplots.

It's okay though, this book is a mess, but it's my mess and I love it despite all of it's flaws, kinda like how we're so imperfect but God still loves us and calls us beautfiul because He created us and has a plan for all of us. Y,know? And I kinda cried a little bit when I realized that as I was laying awake at 1:00 am.

I REACHED 40K!!!!1111 40,000 WORDS. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. I'm only 10K away from this thing officially being a novel,even if it's just a lil' baby novel. yeeeeeep. I might have squealed had it not been almost 1:00 in the morning at the time and people were asleep so I kinda just make this strange enthusuastic breathing noise.

I also beta-read for Sarah recently and had her beta read my book, though both of our books are still yet to be finished, and you guys she's seriously the greatest beta-reader ever and she's probably one of the reasons I'm still writing this book, plus, HER BOOK IS SO SERIOUSLY GREAT AND GAVE ME SUCH FEELS.

oh and on a totally unrelated note,  guess what you guys, I'm going to a Jeremy Camp concert on Thursday, the first concert I've ever been to, so flippin' excited!!! 

Oh, and the pictures above? That bunny is h a r d to take pictures of, it's like, 'oh yes that's perfect, don't move' annnnnd then she bounces away. 

Thanks for listening to my ramblings. you rock, dudes.

How's Nanowrimo plotting going for you guys???

~ Goals for October ~

Hey you guyyys, today I'm gonna be talking about some of my goals for the lovely month of October because it's one of the best months. 

September went by like crazzyyy fast, but I got a lot of writing done and truly feel like I can finish my book this month, (working through this crazy mess of an ending...) AND I'M SO EXCITED. 
Someone asked me the other day if I was converting my blog into a poetry blog, lol NOPE. I can't imagine having a blog restricted to just one thing, I like to be unpredictable, you never know what I'm going to post, or if I'll ever post anything again, *smirks mysteriously* *fades into the darkness* 

GOALS:


1 - Plot for Nanowrimo (which is in 28 FLIPPIN DAYYYYS) And emotionally prepare myself for emotional breakdowns in the middle of November because let's be honest that's totally gonna happen. 


2 - Finish the first draft of Contempt (really hoping to reach 40K) and not think about editing until who-knows-when. (the poor thing is going to be edited to death though so interested in seeing how that goe) 


3 - Drink a hot latte and wear sweaters, *all the warm and fuzzy fall feels* 


4 -  Bake something Fall-ish.
5 -  Take Fall pictures.

6. - Start reading The Lord of The Rings. (don't even ask me why I haven't read the books already, just don't) 

Sooo there you gooo, some of my goals for this month, I apoligise for the obbsesive use of gifs and the fact that I lack the ability to spell at the moment, apparently...

What are some of your goals for this month?
