Moving!

7 Mar

Alright, it’s time for a move!  I’ve imported all my posts and they’re sort of sorted out.  Kind of.  Go!

NaNoWriMo 2010

25 Oct

It’s almost time for NaNoWriMo 2010!  I know I signed up for it last year and got maybe 300 words into a novel (which, not so coincidentally, I still haven’t completed any more of) but I’m going to try my best to glue my butt to a chair and write this year.  Yeah, go me 😛

I do have a novel in mind that I’ve wanted to write for a bit (but haven’t gotten around to, surprise!) so I’m going to go over the plot outline in the next 6 days and finalize it and stuff. I still haven’t yet decided if I’m going to post the entire novel on here or just updates.

I’m also participating in veganmofo 2010 over on Go Fork Go! which should be fun too 🙂  It’s my food and writing month.  Typically both together :S  Either way, it will be tons of writing for me, and I am now taking bets on whether I will complete NaNoWriMo or veganmofo (> 20 food-related posts in November).

Truly Loose Ends

2 Aug

Tonight I dreamt of you. Only this time, it was you, worse than you actually are. With your face all twisted up, some kind of wicked parody of who you really are.

And you, even thinner than you were the last time we met, and frail beyond anything I could have imagined. I was afraid to touch you, that you would dissolve to my touch.

Keeping the Ball Rolling

5 Apr

I guess my commitment to write something everyday is actually turning out to be a lot of work and a big time requirement.  I also haven’t necessarily been in the mood to write recently, for various reasons.

But I’ve been working more on the vampire story.  I know that right now, it reads more like a chick novel than anything else, but it’ll get darker.

I guess I’m going to try and keep posting something everyday, and we’ll see where it goes.

Following up on things

28 Mar

So I didn’t manage to make any posts on Thursday and Friday.  I’m going to try and make four posts over the weekend to make up for it.  Although I left the book where I’ve been writing recently at the office for the weekend, so that makes things a little hard.  I had most of Chapter 3 of Finding Daniella complete and I was planning to post it but I guess I won’t be doing that this weekend.  I’m going to try and find some time to write some music or poetry to post for the rest of the weekend… after Earth Hour tonight.  And stop using “busy” as an excuse.

All The Pretty Things

22 Mar

I’ve always done a lot of blogging (most recently here), but it’s become more of a “bitch blog” recently. Or perhaps that’s what it’s always been – or maybe my head is just getting more and more messed up.

I realized that I don’t do a lot creatively these days outside of writing for my band, and the occasional extra song. Perhaps more relevant, I used to write a lot of short stories and poetry (not necessarily good short stories or poetry) and that’s not something I’ve done recently.

In my defense, working a full time job followed by spending most days at the gym or at band doesn’t tend to leave me with huge amounts of time to sit down and really write, but I’d like to try and get back into it.

Taking the idea from a friend’s blog, I’m going to try to post something “creative” everyday. It may be a story, a photo, poetry, an mp3, an opinion piece… whatever. I promise not to post any art… mostly because I can’t draw. It’s likely going to be work in progress (ie. it may not be finished, there may be errors, etc) but I don’t think that matters since the goal is to make myself do creative things again.

And I’ll even try to make sure that it’s something I’ve been working on recently as opposed to pulling out stuff that was written some time back.
