So I went to snoop around my local library this week, and in my browsing of the stacks, I found myself thinking about American Horror Story. Random, right? So I back up and look at all the spines, and there’s an orange spine with AHS font on it. Naturally, I took it home. (If anyone ever tells you not to judge a book by it’s cover, you call them on their B.S. Covers are important. The most important content in the world would still go unread if the cover designers dropped the ball. And the spines are the most important part of the book cover.) Continue reading
Well. I’m at 1300 words. Which is 500 more than last week? I don’t even know. I haven’t written anything this week.
For the record, I’m not officially participating in Nanowrimo this year. I don’t think I mentioned that last week. I was aiming for a personal goal of 30K this month. It doesn’t even look like that’s gonna happen at this point. I work retail, and we’re gearing up for Christmas, and by the time I get home, I don’t have enough energy left to make words.

So. It’s that time of year. It’s National Novel Writing Month.
I spent most of the first week of Nanowrimo exploring and shopping. I’m all stoked to take new brand pictures (and general Facebook profile stuff, because I’ve had the same profile pic and cover photo for two years). I want a burgundy baseball cap. Where does one acquire a burgundy baseball cap? (In other news, I got a new plaid shirt that’s gray with a little bit of burgundy, and apparently, I am obsessed with burgundy. Which would explain why fall is my favorite season.)
Anyway, my current word count is 825. I’m writing the second half of my book from scratch. I’m loving it so far. One of my main characters is being presented at a coming out ball, and he’s a guy, and it’s hilarious. I’m excited to write more, I just have to do it.
I did it. I actually did it. I wrote a flash fiction piece every day this month. Well. I missed a few days and caught up on others, but the point is that I wrote thirty-one pieces of flash fiction and they are over on my Wattpad if you want to read them. That’s a pretty good excuse for not blogging this week, right? Right.
Hello, Friday, my old friend. Actually, I don’t really like Fridays. I like Thursdays, because the week is almost over but you’re not quite wasting weekend yet. And I work retail, so I don’t really get weekends anyway. Continue reading
