If you are a dreamer, come in

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

a hope-er a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...

If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.

Come in! Come in!

That's My Story & I'm Sticking To It

Dear Readers,
How have you been?
Having disappeared from the blog world (for two weeks, I believe) and I felt like giving you all a nice little update as to what I was doing during that time.
Firstly I finished/didn't finish the NaNoWriMo challenge. By finished, I mean I met my goal. I wrote 100 pages of my story but unfortunately I didn't reach the end of my story or the word count for NaNoWriMo :( However, I didn't have the time to write anymore than I managed because towards the end of November my homework started to get intense!

I plan on finishing the story but not this year. I need to set it aside and forget about it a bit and then read it from beginning to end. While I was writing the story there was a lot of stuff I wasn't too crazy about. Plus the story was never supposed to be longer than 100 or so pages.

I also discovered a great way to overcome my writing weakness. My weakness is procrastination and I can spend ages, I mean ages finishing a story but during NaNoWriMo it only took me 30 days to get 100 pages. Now I'm trying this technique with another story. So far it's working really well but I just need to schedule in some breaks between writing or else I'll get pretty bored/give up :D
So that's what's up with my life right now, anything exciting happening with you?

Wait for it...

Once upon a time there was a little girl who had no time to do she couldn't do anything. The End.

I happen to be feeling very much like that same little girl. I have time to do things but not the things I want to do. This post is catching me smack dab in the middle of finals week and I have so much homework to do I was unable to write a post of this week.

But never fear after finals are over we'll be back on track. I'll tell you all about my little NaNo Adventure, school and yet more writing tips and my latest writing projects.

Hopefully your week has been more peaceful than mine
