Another Day In Paradise

I think i took a wrong exit. Today was so far from Paradise it's not even funny. Woke up at 5:10. Left the house at 6:30. Took a wee little road trip to Bamberg Germany to take my SAT.

Where someone thought my name was Lindsey. This is someone i have History with. ._.
Well, it's a step up from that time in Spanish class in my freshman year. They called me Sarah for months. Atleast this chick got the first two letters right.

Took my SAT. was incredibly bored during it.
Went home at about 1 pm. Got home around 2.
Way behind on my word count.
Killed a spider.
Ripped holes in my wall.
Am dying of Bronchitis.
Not really, it just sucks alot.

A Penny For Your Thoughts?

I'm sick and i'm stressed. I've got my first ever SAT tomorrow morning in a place that's an hour away, and i'm not even sure of WHERE the freaking testing site is. I'm behind on my word count for today, even though i've passed tomorrow's mark. 
I don't want to sit in a crowded room for four hours tomorrow morning at 8. I can hardly breathe, my throat is killing me, and my coughing makes me sound like an old man.
I want to sleep, so so badly. But if i sleep now, i won't wake up till the middle of the night, where i'll be exhausted by the time i leave for my test.
Someone spare me?

2126 words later.

That's how much i've written today, and it's only 2:14. I want to hit 8k words total by the end of the day, so only about 700 more words are needed. I've totally got this. 

I've got a doctors appointment later on today since i missed the entire week of school. Le sigh. 
SATs this weekend. Kinda nervous. Kinda very nervous.

So far, i'm holding up though. Had my first writer's block of this novel yesterday. I was stumped for like, four hours before my sister and best friend were able to help drag me out of it.

NaNo Day Two Summary

Oye. To carry on with what i was talking about earlier, my Writer's Block seriously beat the crap out of me today..

i pulled through though, and wrote a butt-ton more from my last post. And if i weren't so tired, and if my eyes werent losing focus every ten minutes, i'd write 300 or so more words so that i can hit an even 3k words today. But, i'm fine with what i've got.
How're your novels going so far? Any advice?

i'm out for the night - i'll welcome you with another post tomorrow morning. Add me if you'd like!

Day two and i'm stumped.

Phew. This sucks. I've written less than 700 words today. I'm stumped - the introduction is just like. Ugh, do i have to? i just have to write a bit of bitter dialogue until some exciting stuff can begin happening.  OH. They meet Annelise soon! YUS.

thank you, Sara, for your - POOKIE. ARE YOU SERIOUS? My cat's had like. the worst gas all day, and he's asleep on the floor behind me. jeebus. 
Anyways - thanks for your desire to have your character be a creepy/epic silent type. *Le hug*

i'll check in a little later.

Day One; Successsssss!

ohhai again.

I stayed home today, because i'm still sick. No idea if i'm going or not tomorrow... i know that i should, but yeah. no idea.
my word count was kinda. Meh. at first today. at 8 in the morning i only had two paragraphs, but then i was like. WHOA. IDEA. so i started writing, and when i checked again *i write in OneNote, so i have to copy and paste into word* i was at 2,387 when all I needed for the 50k goal is 1667 a day. I'm gonna shoot for atleast that much a day, and whatever's left is brilliant. Makes me book even longer, and if need be, can make up for days i missed.
i've got SATs this weekend, and i'm hoping my sick goes away by then...
How'd your first day go? Or, depending on where you live, how's it going now? I'm still gonna write some more, but I have to do some chemistry. Le Sigh.

It's Hereeee.

Well, hello again folks.
This is it; day nu- ew. nosespray just hit the back of my throat. and i just discovered i have a bloody nose. -le sigh- anyways. Day number one is upon us. Normally, i'd be going to school in half an hour, where i'd sit through the following -thrilling- classes.
AP English and Composition - i have an exam today.
Seminar - SSR (in which i'd write) and then during the time after SSR, i'd go to my computer animations and make up a test from yesterday that i missed cuz i was sick.
AVID - I have a debate today, about either the movie "Twelve Angry Men" or something my teacher found online.
Algebra 2 - the only class i'm stumped about missing. Mr Jordan's going to have to email me the lesson.
instead, i'm going to stay home, because both my mom and my sister are thinking i'm possibly on the verge of having mono, although, lemme tell you, i've only kissed one guy my entire life, and he moved almost two years ago.
While i'm staying home, though, i'll be writing. As much as possible, maybe i'll get tomorrow's word count in as well.

One Last Breath Of Freedom

Welp. Take a nice long look at it guys; the sun's setting on our last day of freedom. Literally. See? Look at that. The last day of October, and i've only got about an hour of sunlight left.
Regardless. Here we go. This is it. I'm thinking that i'll be watching Gilmore Girls throughout this month, just to keep a shred of sanity, no matter how counter-productive it seems. 

i'm honestly scared. i don't think i'm prepared. i've got six hours left max to get everything done. I'm going to go set up my notebook like. now. i think i need to find a daily encouragement thingy to keep myself going.

I got this. i hope. someone keep me sane. i need a reliable venting buddy. Someone? Anyone?

Regardless. You can see me ranting here. If you made it through this blog post, and it made sense to you; bravo my friend. Bravo. It almost makes no sense to me. i just kinda spoke out of everything. <--- made no sense. Roar. Erm. I gotta go. Plan my next 30 days. Pick out my notebook, etc. I don't know what to say any more. I was going to say something important, but i forgot...

as a side note; Happy birthday to my daddy! I love you <3

p.s.s. Happy Hallowe'en all!
