End of NaNoWriMo

Hey guys. I know I haven't been posting like at all for the past week. I think its been a week since I last said something. I don't even know because its been that long. Anyways, I had a good time with the family for Thanksgiving. I'm always very thankful for them because they support me in so many ways. They also like to see me succeed in life. I also worked my butt off at work and at my writing. I mean I really worked hard on my writing. I actually didn't think that I'd be 800 words short from getting the amount I needed by the end of the month. I have my mom to thank for that. She gave me some motivation by coming up with awards if I reached a certain amount. When we came up with this, I was like twenty thousand words behind. She didn't think I'd be able to do it. But here I am taking a break because I'm stuck. I'm currently working on the part where Donny cheats on Liz. Its really hard to do because I've never cheated on anyone. I know that I've been highly attracted to someone else while in a relationship with someone. I even fell in love with someone who was not my boyfriend at the time. But I never cheated. The temptations were there, but never acted on them. Now I kind of wonder if it would be so much easier to write this book if I did give into those temptations. But my mom raised me better then that. Anyways, my rewards that I had were that if I got 40,000 words my mom would get me two CDs. One was going to be one of the bands I saw with her at the beginning of the month and the other was going to be a BTS CD. For 50,000 words my mom was going to get me a Tatsmato plushie doll because I like B.A.P. and Himchan is my favorite member. I'm still wondering why they gave him the color pink, but I'm sure its a good reason. Anyways, if I was to get 60,000 words then I'd get all three. But at this rate, that isn't going to happen. But maybe I'll get stuck with inspiration before midnight and reach the remaining 10,000 words to get all three. But I highly doubt it. I'm too tired to keep going. Its taking all I have just for this final stretch. Also I'm no longer going to post previews of Donny on here. Not when I'm so close to finishing the book. I want you guys to be surprised towards the end. Because I made Donny a total jerk and I want you guys to hate him when you read it. I'm just kidding. There is a lot that happens that makes the book's story. I don't want to reveal any of it until the book is actually published. Also I cut out a few scenes because my mom is my editor. After she is done going over what have, I'll probably include those scenes. Then have someone else edit those parts. But I'm going to head out for now. Wish me luck guys. So until next time.......

I got Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon back.

Hey guys, I got some books from the library and one of them is a book I read way way way back. I figured I should read it again because I never finished it and there are so many other books in the series that I want to read, but can't because I have this dictionary size book to read. Its literally the size of a dictionary. I honestly forgot how big this book was. Also I'm stuck on chapter fourteen for Donny, so why no read and rest my creative mind. Right now I just restarted the whole book. So I'm no that far into it. I only got two chapters done last night because I was too tired after writing chapter thirteen of Donny. Also my aunt and I just had a meaningful talk. She was nice enough to remind me on why I write in the first place. Also on why I even do this blog. This is all because it is my passion and my grandma Lois always told me to go after things that I feel passionate about. To always live out my dreams. So maybe with this big boost in motivation, I'll be able to finish Donny on time and maybe get a lot of reading done. Its just been a stressful month with the contest and all that has been going down personally. Hopefully the month of December will be a better one. So until next time.......

Hey guys

I know I haven't been posting lately. I'm a little stuck with the book I'm writing. Also I feel a little unmotivated. The list of finalists came out and I didn't make it. So that could be a factor on why I'm not writing. Like I'm sitting around wondering what was wrong with what I sent and what can I do the make it better. Maybe I'm just not a good enough writer. I honestly don't know what to thing. But I'm going to head out for now. Sorry for not making the post longer. I'm tired because its been a busy weekend with birthday parties and lots of family visiting. Its something I'm going to miss a lot when I move out East. I'm enjoying it while it lasts. So until next time......

Birthday Update

Hey fellow bookworms. I know I haven't been reading as much as I should. My writing is my first love and needs my full attention at the moment. But I'll get back to reading as soon as I can. Right now by the end of the day, I'm so mentally tired that I just pass out on my bed. This book that I'm writing is taking a lot out of me, but its turning out great. Or at least I hope it is. Right now I'm starting to second guess everything and just want to restart it. I really need to stop doing that. Maybe some words of encouragement will help me keep the version I have right now since I'm about halfway through the book and NaNoWriMo.
Anyways, its my birthday today. I'm spending my first hours into the day at work and writing my book. I did watch some videos on Youtube of my two favorite K-pop bands. I've pretty much have watched every video of BTS so far. But now that B.A.P. is back, I have to relearn everything. I got the names down except for one. But I know which one it is....sort of. Three of the members kind of look a like at times and it confused my little brain. Hopefully once I've watched all their videos I'll be able to pick out which member is what.
Anyways, back to my birthday. Its my second one since starting this blog. I've spent two birthdays now with the world and its kind of heartwarming. Writing this blog has really brought two of my loves together and its been fun. I know I don't post as much as I should, but I try. I'll try to improve on that as the year continues. Hopefully by next July I'll be relocating myself to the East Coast and improved on this blog. Also maybe I'll start a small video series for this blog by that time. That way you guys can learn a little bit more about my everyday life. Maybe I'll finally get published. Who knows what will happen by next July?
I look forward to today, well sort of. I will most likely get to have lunch with my mom at our usual spot. I'm looking forward to having an onion blossom for my birthday. I love onion blossoms, well mostly the sauce that comes with it. I won't get to actually celebrate my birthday until Saturday, the 21, because everyone has to work. Including me. But I look forward to my cake because I actually get a cake this time around. Thats the down side to having a birthday so close to Thanksgiving. We wait until Thanksgiving to celebrate it and we combine it with my grans' birthday. So instead of cake, we have birthday pie.
Its no big deal that we usually celebrate it a week later. The deal is that my family knows I hate pie. Okay I don't hate it. I eat the filling more than anything. I hate the crust, and my family always makes fun of me about it. They always tell me that the crust is the best part. I don't really think so. But it will be nice to actually have a cake for my birthday. Last year I had cheesecake for a birthday cake. That was pretty good and different. Grans and I shared a piece because I don't really like sweets that much and Grans can't have many sweets because she is diabetic.
Anyways, that is enough rambling from me. I'm just writing this so I don't have to work on Donny. I know I should since I'm so behind schedule. But I have no motivation to. Basically the story is building up to the part that was hinted in the Prologue and then it all just crashes down to the end I hinted about. I'm pretty satisfied with the ending and I hope all of you are as well. I also hope you guys are enjoying the previews and look forward to the book actually being published.
But I'm going to head out now. I thought I'd just ramble and tell you all what was going on in my crazy head. Hopefully I'll be able to post about a book eventually. So until next time.......

I am so tempted to tell you about the book I'm reading, but I'm not halfway through it yet. Also I'm never lending books to my little sister again. She came to visit and had the book she borrowed. It broke my heart to see that it was water damaged. She was also nice enough to tell me that it wasn't her fault. The story is that she left an ice pack in her locker and it dripped onto the book. There are so many questions with that story. Like who would put an ice pack in their locker? And, if you put an ice pack in your locker, why put it where it can drip all over your stuff? Jamie McGuire I'm sorry that my sister ruined my copy of Beautiful Disaster. I'm very heartbroken over it. I fear for my other books I lent her. I just have to say that thank the good lord that none of those books are signed. Or I'd really be crying. I do have one book signed by Jamie McGuire and that one I'm never lending out. Its my prized possession. Or at least one of them. But now I have to get a new Beautiful Disaster book. My sister is most likely going to be keeping my books for the rest of their life. Meaning I have to go shopping for new books. Sad face. Only because I have no money at the time. All Time Low has taken it all because I loves them too much to sacrifice seeing them. At least I have my Kpop music to keep me company and motivated. Even though I had to go a few days with out listening to it because my mom wanted me to listen to something else. Worst four days of my life. It was so hard to write with out it. But I'm full on listening again because one of my favorite Kpop bands came out with a new music videos, which means a new audio CD will be coming out. Will I be getting it? Most likely not, because I have no money and my mom is mean. Also with Donny wrapping up at the end of this month, I will be starting my research for the sequel called Elizabeth. Yes, there is a sequel. Only because I'm going to make you guys hate me by the end of Donny when its officially done and hopefully published. Hint, I'm ruining the image of one of the main characters. But I'm going to head out. I have nine thousand words to write by midnight to be considered caught up. So until next time.......

I don't really pay attention to the news or even watch TV. I focus more on the books I read or the stories I write. But my mom had informed me that there has been some tragedy lately. One of my favorite cities in the world got attacked and it kind of breaks my heart. So my heart goes out to all of those that have been affected by the attacks in Paris. Everyone of you have my complete support, love, and prayers.

Started reading At Any Price by Brenna Aubrey

I'm stuck. So what better way to get rid of writer's block then read a ebook on my computer. Its a quick read and it will give my brain a rest from the constant writing. So as usual I know nothing about the book other then the name and author. Everything is based off first impressions, what I think of the book halfway, and then as a whole. Three posts. Thats all you are getting. Unless the book is like super long or taking me forever to read. Figured I'd go over the rules again, just to remind myself more then anyone else. Remember its been a while. So far first impression is that I'm sensing a romance, which seems to be my main choice of genre when it comes to everything. All I got so far from the first few pages is that our leading lady, Mia sold her virginity to the highest bidder that fit her needs. Prediction, she either falls in love with a multi-millionaire or her best friend that helped her go through all of this. But I have to read to find out. So until next time......

Almost there and contests?

Believe it or not, I'm almost caught up with writing. I say it will probably take me two or three more days until I'm at the desirable amount. Which means I can go back to reading soon. That makes me so happy. I miss my books. Anyways, I forgot to mention that I'm going to be at the edge of my seat for the next few days. I entered Donny into a contest. Like its a legit contest and its the first time I ever did something like that. Sure there were contests where the prize is bragging rights and what not. This time around there is a pretty cool price and I'm all for winning a chance to get a literary agent. It would make my life so much easier at getting published. Anyways, but I have to wait until my grandmother's birthday in order to find out if I became a finalist. Then the real work begins where people vote for their favorite story. Down side, there is only 500 words that they are going to read and judge. And, only five people get chosen to be a finalist out out thousands, maybe even millions of entries. It makes me nervous just thinking about it. I'm pretty confident in Donny, but there are people who are probably way more talented then I am that will make the cut. Either way I'm nervous and just anxiously waiting for the list to come out. Like I'm so ready to get this over with that I check once a day to see if they put it up early. Its like ripping a band-aid off right now, but we are doing it as slow as possible. Fingers crossed that these next few days go by fast. So until next time....

I miss reading

Reading doesn't take as much energy as writing. With writing you have to come up with a story and use your creativity nonstop. I'm going to be mentally drained by the end of the week. I'm also never letting myself fall so fricken behind ever again. Anyways, good news is, I'm almost caught up. Also things are getting serious in Donny. I'm happy with how this book it turning out. Now if only my family would stop judging with the fact that I listen to Kpop when I write. It is just so motivating. If I didn't have it, I wouldn't have gotten as far as I am in the past few days. Its working for me. That is all that matters. Anyways, I'll eventually go back to reading. I'll probably request books that are short in order for me to catch up faster. I would love to read the books I've been reading, but they are thinkers and that takes me forever. Even when you have an author try to explain the book to you and what his vision is is not helping me. But the effort is very much appreciated. Anyways, I'm going to head back to writing. Just thought I'd give an update with my progress. I have previews up to chapter five up for Donny. Don't be afraid to tell me what you think of it so far. Also its hard to believe that I've been with Adsense for a year now. They are probably wondering why they even invested in me. I'm just kidding. I'm avoiding going back to writing as much as possible. I need to sleep a week, or so how it feels, after all of this. So until next time......

Still haven't gone back to reading

Its not like I don't want to read, but right now my focus is still trying to catch up with NaNoWriMo. I keep putting it off and I'm way behind. Like I'll never reach my goal until February behind. But I did post the preview to chapter three. So I am at least making some progress. I deserve a round of applause for that. Hopefully I'll get some reading done before the new year, but since its such a hectic time for all of us with Thanksgiving and Christmas and what ever other holiday everyone celebrates. No one is going to get anything done is all I'm saying. Unless you are one of those people that make others think you are a superhero or something awesome. I envy those people because I'm the worst multitasker and I get way too distracted by other things. Like YouTube when I want to listen to Kpop to motivate me. Then I get into the music videos because the dancing is cool, and then I don't get any writing done. I need a Kpop CD for my birthday or Christmas. Speaking of birthday. I had no idea that time was going by so fast that my birthday is next week Thursday. I'm going to be 24. Its scary. Just as scary as going to the doctors to get tested for hypoglycemia, which I still haven't done. I'm going to avoid it as much as I can. I think the only time I'm actually going to get tested is when I finally pass out in the bathtub while showering. Or, my mom sets the appointment for me. I'm a terrible person and so not independent. But I live with my mom to save up for the big move out east. So I might as well use it to my advantage. Right? Anyways, I'm going to head out. I only wanted to let you all know what is going on lately. Nothing much. Just me not writing Donny like I should. So until next time......

Catch up post

So I'm reading two books at once. Why? Because I had no idea taking four days off from doing anything would put me so fricken behind. I'm like three books behind my reading goal for this year. I'm ten thousand words behind for NaNoWriMo. And you guys are probably wondering where I have been. I know I posted earlier today, but I thought I'd explain a little bit more on what has been going on the past four days. For those that have been following my facebook, I went to Illinois for a few days. Why? Because there is a group of guys who's concert I never miss. And since I haven't seen them for like six months, I went with my mom to go see them. I'll also be seeing them again next month for their Christmas show. If you don't know who I'm talking about when I only mention that they had a show in Illinois and another one in Wisconsin next month, then we have a problem. I'm just kidding. I went to see All Time Low. I love those guys and I'm a huge fan of them as people. Those guys can put a smile on me face no matter what. But anyways, I stayed at a hotel where the internet wasn't free. So I couldn't post or anything. I did pack a book, but I was too tired the day we arrived because I worked the day before and stayed up in order to direct my mom to the hotel. I pretty much passed out as soon as we got into the room. The next day was show day, so I didn't get anything done that day. Nothing gets done when its a day of All Time Low. They have my complete attention for a whole fricken day because they deserve it. Anyways, sadly while I was at their show I had a bit of an incident. I nearly fainted because apparently I was low on blood sugar. Scared the crap out of me because something like that never happens to me during a concert. So the next day my mom decided instead of going to Milwaukee for Sleeping with Sirens, we were going home. Sad face. She wanted me to get check out to see if I have Hypoglycemia, which she explained to me is like diabetes but just the opposite.  So I came home and sulked for a few days. But now I'm reading and writing like my life depends on it. I will do a post on the books I'm reading as soon as I can. Right now my main focus is to get caught up on my writing. Because that is my passion and I want to join the world of my favorite authors. So until next time......

Hey guys

I know I haven't been posting as much as I should. But its NaNoWriMo and my focus has been mainly on that. I still read every once in a while, but not enough to actually make a post. Also I was gone for a few days. I went to see my favorite people and then I came home early to see the doctor. While I was away I almost fainted for no reason and it had my mom highly concerned. Only because something like that never happens to me. So we have to get it checked out and find out if I have a medical condition that needs instant attention. My mom thinks I have something that my uncle has. Its a big word, so I'm not even going to try to spell it. But I'll try to update as much as I can during the month. I'll probably be posting a preview of chapter three soon for Donny. Maybe even a post on a book I'm reading. But I'll try to post more. Sorry for disappearing on you guys, I'll try to improve. So until next time......
