I know there is at least one person who watches me who doesn't like to follow my lj when I'm going through NaNo, so I thought I'd throw it up that from November 1 to November 30 I will once again be doing NaNoWriMo. I will try to put any rambling for it behind a cut, but if you want to take me off your reading list--NO BIG DEAL. Seriously. Y'all are my friends, but you certainly do not have to share all my interests and there will be no hard feelings on my part if you don't want to read my rants.


(Unless your name is Kate, in which case: I hate you ;p)

...but I was just wondering if any of you were doing NaNo this year? If you are, FRIEND ME, BITCHES.

Okay, now I'm getting up.

Title: I That You
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Emotional sadness; death
Summary: Two individuals meet during their vacations during high school and fall in love.
Notes: I figured out what was wrong. I was writing the wrong story. Okay, it was the right story, but it was the wrong method. I've revised that and I'm solely concentrating on the relationships between characters. I've also cut the zombies. *sob* But it's writing itself now. There is going to be less action, and more mushy stuff, but I like this concept better.

This is the first story I've finished for the novel.

Life. It's happening.

It finally hit me yesterday that NaNo is coming up. It's not that I didn't know, it just hadn't fully hit me yet. I dug out my copy of No Plot? No Problem! and started decorating my moleskine cover. I need to start planning this sucker.

NaNo stuff )

My new project is Personal Constellation. It'll be a tumblr...thingy (what do you call it? is it a blog? is it...something else entirely?) dedicated to creating a positive force in my life. It will consist of music, quotes, pictures...anything that brings a bubble of lightness into my heart. I'll try to update it at least every other day, but no promises, since we all know how I can be with commitment. Go ahead and take a look and see what I've put up so far! Click here~

I feel as if I get down so easily lately with all of the issues going on at home with money and my "dragon," as Sarah calls my brother, and so I wanted a place I could go that was a collection of things that had brought a smile to my face in the past. That way, when I was down and out, I could go and check it out and be reminded of how AWESOME the Universe is. And since kindergarten taught me it was polite to share, I thought I'd put it out there for everyone to view.

I miss you guys. I love y'all so much and the random hello's and phone calls have really kept my spirits up. I'm sorry I've been out of touch, and it means a lot that you guys still think so highly of me that you are still thinking of me.

Um. My family my lose our house. Again. Within the next few months. Right now we're trying to refinance it, so hopefully that will work and we'll be able to keep it. I know that one very wonderful individual on my f-list had been offering to pay my way at cons or to take me on fantastic trips, and I know the rest of you are probably wondering why I'm not posting and commenting, so I wanted y'all to know. It's been really heavily on my mind, and so I've been in a very cynical mood lately. I didn't want to subject you guys to that. I won't be doing much of anything exciting for a while, either. So it's not that I'm too busy for you guys, or that I don't want to do exciting things with you.

And I know you guys probably want to tell me that things will get better, etc. But really, please don't. I have no doubts that life will look up eventually, but neither you or I have any idea when that will be, and so I don't want to hear it. Losing a house once is hard, but having to go through it again, and with this being the one my dad bought us, it's hard. And it makes me miss him. I know you guys are going to send positive thoughts my way, and pray for me if you believe in such things, and I want to thank you for that. You don't have to tell me, because I know that you would like for me to be back to my superhapyawesome self, but it may take a few months.

So let's not talk about depressing things, and just concentrate on what's going right in all of our lives. The world gets us down, but I know the universe has great plans for us. I love you all. Like, so much.

Halloween's been a blast, and I am totally kicking ass and taking names. I love telling customers they are doing it wrong and that I won't bend policy for them. The look on their faces is great. They underestimate me and think, "Here's a cute girl, I can pull the wool over her eyes and get her to take back this damaged costume that's obviously been worn," and then I don't and the shock on their faces is priceless. JUST BECAUSE I'M TINY AND CUTE DOES NOT MEAN I AM A PUSHOVER. :D

Also I've been having fun with my costumes this year. When Becca and I go to Chris' Halloween party, we'll be matching leopard-print dress witches! I'm going to dig out my flavored body glitter (it's peppermint) and put sparkles around my eyes and in my hair. I'm excited~ Chris' parties are fun, and I like that I've finally found someone who will invite me to parties and not hassle me about not drinking. He keeps a cooler full of non-alcoholic beverages just for me and Jenny!


Oh, by the way guys, I think you're all totally BAMFs. Just, you know...for the record and all.

♥♥

Title: super + ordinary: A Tale of Your Average Everyday Super Girl
Rating: PG13? (some crude language stuff)
Status: Finished (mostly)
Word Count: 43 812

Summary:      Liz Rider is probably the most popular girl in her whole town. Everybody loves--how could they not? In addition to balancing school and friends, she saves the world in her spare time. But being a super hero isn't always easy when you've got nosy reporters breaking into your house to get the inside scoop, and super villains who want to dethrone you--forever.

The Novel: *story notes will be added tomorrow 12.01*
Chapters: {read first} | 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | {story notes}
**Please keep in mind this is a VERY rough version of it. If you have any questions and need me to clarify something in it, please ask me and I'll answer. Give me some honest c&c so I can do some massive edits on it!!** (also, some of the wording is very awkward and excessively...wordy because I was trying to bump my word count. And I put spaces between all of my hyphens, em dashes, and ellipses to fluff my word count. Sorry, I know it hurts to read it.)

My thoughts on this year: (copied from [livejournal.com profile] nanowrimo
I'm going to say that I won... )

I'm behindddddd!!!! Thank you everyone who is egging me on and making me feel guilty about not writing. I'm hopefully going to explode into a mass amount of words over the next few days. I'm certainly going to try writing as much as I can tomorrow (yay for not working!) and then I've got half of Friday. I'm hoping I can be caught up with where I need to be by the time I go to bed on Friday. I'm just crossing my fingers. D:

My NaNo progress for days six through fourteen. I was kind of in a daze for three days and didn't write anything, and then I sort of scribbled a few hundred here and there for another two or three. No real writing until yesterday and the day before.

Don't worry, there's not that much )

Ahhhh....do you know how good it feels to over and past the 10k marker already? It's been less than half the time it took me last year and I'm actually AHEAD of schedule according to my handy dandy notebook (a.k.a. No PLOT? No Problem!) by about two days. I'm sooo thrilled! I feel really positive about this year.

REMINDER TO SELF: I need need need NEED to record my submission for "Voices for Lolita" TOMORROW!!!!! I CAN'T FORGET!!!!!!!!!!!!

TiLT will be coming after I get out of school. I have so much I'm thrilled about this week. Squee~

Oh, Cindy and I ordered our lucky packs from Meta! I'm soooo excited about this year. Last year I actually got a skirt I had been wanting quite badly, so I'm really hoping I'm not disappointed this year. 8D

Also, I think that I am musically regressing. I've begun listening to Disney channel stars' music. I downloaded the HSM3 soundtrack! I'm listening to Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers!! I'm rocking out to Hilary Duff!!! (does she still count?) Aly and AJ! Milo and Otis! Ashley Tisdale! Miley Cyrus only that one song that vaguely reminds me of Shakespeare!

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?!?!?

Ahhhh...I'm in so much pain....! I love it. (And no, I'm not some sort of masochist) But, there is something that is just oh-so-satisfying about working your hardest all weekend and coming home sore and in all sorts of pain, but also knowing that you have done your best, helped lots of people, and looked absolutely FAB whilst doing all of it.

I swear, this weekend was both total bliss and absolute hell. We are finally into the full swing of things at P.C. and Halloween is right around the corner. I'm so excited for the holiday, but I do abhor the way people (a.k.a. customers) blowing things waaay out of proportion. They tend to ruin the holiday not only for themselves, but for others as well.

Nothing particularly memorable has happened yet, but I really don't think that anything will top last year. Haha, I don't think I ever told any of you about it!! Okay, well it went something like this:

ME: *folding costumes and working dressing room whilst looking FAB*

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: *comes out of dressing room stall and hands back balled up costume that is totally not within the confines of its package*

ME: Did you like this costume?

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: No.

ME: Oh, I'm sorry. I hope you can find something you like.

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: Oh, I'm sure I will, there were several others I wanted to try on, anyways.

ME: Oh, that's good.

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: Yeah. *starts walking off* By the way, it's okay that I don't wear underwear, right?

ME: O.O ... *realizes she has to fold and repackage costume, turns to secondary dressing room associate* Can you fold that while I run these costumes to the back?


No lie.



For those of you who have been wondering, October is Halloween month and, as I work at a party store, I'm quite busy. I've picked up more hours so I haven't had as much time to be online. I've been reading your entries, I'm probably just not commenting as much as I usually do, nor will I be posting as much as I normally do. But, ne'er ye fear, November is right around the corner, and I will taking part in National Novel Writing Month and will, inevitably, be using livejournal as if it were Twitter. Haha, but I wouldn't do it if I didn't love it! Anyone else thinking of taking part in it?

I have a project in mind, but first, I need y'alls help. I'm trying to decide on a name for my NaNo novel, but everything I think of sounds really lame. Like, really lame. So could you help? Pleeeaaaase?? I've copypasta'd the synopsis (available online at my NaNoWriMo profile page) below.

Liz Rider is probably the most popular girl in her whole town. Everybody loves--how could they not? In addition to balancing school and friends, she saves the world in her spare time. But being a super hero isn't always easy when you've got nosy reporters breaking into your house to get the inside scoop, and super villains who want to dethrone you--forever.


Yeah...even the synopsis sounds lame. Buut~ it is going to be epic. Like, JALOPY BUNGALOW-type epic. And I want to do something before NaNo starts, but in order to do it, I need a TITLE.

Help?
