And yeah. It was awesome. My younger sister found this dress at a town garage sale, bought it, and than forbade me to wear it for Halloween. However, she did let me put it on and have a photo shoot, and i felt really, really beautiful. I did fuss with my hair and think, "Man my smile is stupid," but it was so much fun i got over myself : ).
And i am DOING NaNoWriMo. I have a plot and everything!
So i shall keepeth you posted throughout my crazy journey of November-ness!
Post #1: ZE PLOT.
Book title: My Hero
The plot is brief but a little awesome.
Patricia Christina Harriet Cobbler, or Peach (yes, she is called Peach Cobbler. Don't hate) wakes up one morning from a strange dream, aware that she owes her life to someone. At some point in her brief life of 15 years, she would have died, if someone hadn't saved her. She has no idea who, when, what or where. But the voice in the dream tells her she needs to be grateful.
Thus, terrified and curious at the same time, Peach sets out to find her 'hero', and along the way learns just who a hero is, and how many times someone has saved her life.
Well, if you haven't, that yonder link shall enlighten you.
Anyway.....last year, my older sister did this, and i was INSANELY jealous. I was like, "NO WAY!? WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME???"
So, this year, when on a forum somebody brought it up, in a spur of passion, my brain immediately said, "YES!!!!!"
I signed up.
I told everyone on said forum, "I AM DOING THIS!!!"
Reality sunk in.
Stupid reality...ruins my life every time.
Anyway...i realized, "What have i done!?!?! I don't have TIME! I don't know what I'll DO! Aw, MAN!!!...."
Sad, isn't it?
And here we are, more than halfway through October, AND I STILL CAN'T DECIDE!!!!!!!
I mean, i already HAVE written novels! Several novels! Just...not in 30 days.
And when i say i don't have time, that's pretty true. I have plans for November! The 5th through the 7th I'll be gone, than there's Thanksgiving, than i have plans to sleepover and see a movie with a friend, and than there's school, and, oh yeah, my mother doesn't actually ALLOW me to go on the computer to write morning noon and night.
But i REEEEEALLY want to : (.
Such a torturous predicament.
What to do, what to do...?
I'll probably end up doing it ANYWAY.....and just not getting anywhere CLOSE to 50,000 words.
But that doesn't keep me from completely losing it over this minor and completely un-life-altaring decision.
My muse seems to have returned...at least partially, from the Bahamas.
Very good of him.
And he (the Muse) seems to pop up in the STRANGEST places!
It was in the bathroom at church while i paused in a conversation with some people.
Amusingly, after the inspiration, when i returned to the group, they were discussing politics.
So, the inspiration is kind of connected to The Epic post i made earlier. My school assignment sparked MUCH amusment and inspiration for myself.
I have long been insanely jealous that the idea of having museum characters come to life was ALREADY THOUGHT UP by someone else *crabby face*. But it dawned on me that, while it would be cheesy to replicate the plot exactly, whose to say i can't use the idea???
So, the idea was that Roscoe (see The Epic) comes to life from cartoons, along with some other cartoon characters, mainly my own and my friends. My thought was that the book is both terrifying and amusing (Terrifying: little dogs coming at you with axes and hammers. Amusing: little dogs coming at you with axes and hammers).
The character based off of myself, being the Apprentice (hmph) would be the one to first discover this predicament. Then the Apprentice and the Expert (once again, see The Epic) would have to embark on a dangerous and amusing mission to vanquish cartoon-kind.
This book would be written, of course, solely to entertain myself and others : )
I want SO BADLY to right something around the same awesomeness as Rick Riordon (haha...dream on, me), but i have a feeling writing something FUN in the meantime would be good for my self-esteem.
I awoke at 5:40 am and couldn't really get back to sleep.
I had even gone to bed EARLY last night to try and catch a few more Zs than usual.
And i slept GREAT...
Until 5:40 am.
When i did doze on and off this morning, i was plagued by strange dreams of my grandmother lamenting the loss of a rock at her workplace (apparently this was a really BIG, SPECIAL rock). Than my younger brother said something about pudding.
Around that time i woke up.
Dozed a little more.
Dragged my carcass out of bed.
Had my morning made by an e-mail from a friend.
Fortunately, i didn't have school today.
So i was allowed to be lazy and lay around the house moaning every so often.
However, i reeeeeally hope i sleep better tonight!
My older sister is getting sick of me being tired.
I decided to take it upon myself to share with you five songs! One i love, one i hate, one amusing, one sad, and one strange.
1. Song I Love:
Contending for Deepest Voice (and best song!), Long Black Train, by Josh Turner! <3
2. Song I Hate:
World's stupidest song EVVVVER, She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy, by Kenny Chesney *gag*. Seriously, i H-A-T-E this song. So. Much.
3. Amusing Song:
Lyrically amusing, not to mention cute, Boys and Bugs by Poema!
4. Sad Song:
This song could ALSO be put under amusing because the music video is so funny, Till I Forget About You, by Big Time Rush. (The beginning of this video reminds me of your cartoon, Cartoon Drawing Buddy!)
5. And finally, Strange Song!
I actually kind of like this song.....except that its so....strange. The bridge is like, "WHA? Your singing COUNTRY, remember???" Stuck Like Glue, by Sugarland.
Thank you for listening to (or at least looking at the titles of) my five songs!
