It is currently 10:30 PM and in an hour and a half, I will be writing furiously along with many other people in the world as a part of NaNoWriMo. So I figured I should update before November starts.
Wait... you don't know about NaNo? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellll, basically, you go insane for a month and attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in the course of a month. It's fun and I highly recomend it. Well, I think it's fun. This is technically my second year, but last year I failed epicaly with a total of 67 words. BUT I SHALL WIN THIS TIME BECAUSE I AM A STRONG AND POWERFULL WOMAN.
My story is about a girl in rehab for anorexia. She falls in love with the kid she HATED in elementary school, but she has a boyfriend who is planning proposing to her when she finishes with rehab. HOWEVER, he cheats on her.
It's very cliched but that should make it easier to write. I REALLY hate cliches though. REALLY. I'm surprised I liked Twilight for so long, honestly. I think it's because it's written in a way that makes you fall in love with Edward along with Bella.
Anyway, today is halloween. I'm too old to Trick or Treating, unfortunately. I really like Trick or Treating. Sadness. Lena and I went on a walk while the youngins were out collecting candy. It made me so nostalgic... GOSH I sound old!
Then we came home and dad took us to the grocery store to buy discounted halloween candy. We got snickers, Peeps, and candy corn. I love peeps. We also watched the Corpse Bride which is epically awesome +50.
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp + Helena Bonham Carter = Epically Awesome.
+50 awesome points (which is a lot of awesome points) for it being a musical.
I watched Edward Scissorhands today for the first time. It was so sad!
Lily is doing NaNoWriMo as well, and I think we're having a race, but I'm not sure... I hope not, because Lily is an amazing writer, and I have a tendency to exctreme writers block. That's how I failed last year.
I need to go finish outlining at least the first few chapters and probably come up with a character sketch for the main characters... And research sociopathy. The male main character is a sociopath in rehab for suicide, so I should figure out how he's suposed act. I suppose he'll tell me sometime, though... Anyway, only one hour and 10 minutes left! EEEEEP I'm so excited!!! I think this is proof of my saninty.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And happy Nanoing to anyone doing it out there!
