    Christmas 2014 & #WIPMarathon Report #11 (December)

    ūüôā The end of the year is upon us! Christmastime has passed for some of us, and yours truly received this little cotton ball from her sister: He’s two months old. We’re bonding right now. So far I’ve learned that he hates sudden loud noises (don’t we all) and gets excited over music. My kind of bunny! Also, he pees in a litter box like a cat. So great. ^_^ Anywho, Christmas was good! I got my brother a rather loud, lime green golf shirt, and he really likes it, so score! In less awesome news, during a card game called Spoons (I think), I sustained I lovely, poisonous snake…

    The Yes, I’m Doing NaNoWriMo Post

    I actually decided about a week into the month to just take October off and chill and get my neuroticism under control. I fell into a slump, and I just let it happen. Maybe it needed to happen. I never did take August off like I had originally planned, and I was getting stressed out trying to juggle all my ideas and settle on two to focus on. Every time I settled on two, a third (or fourth or fifth) idea would pop up and demand attention. As it happens sometimes, I ended up doing none of them. Lol! So I gave myself until the end of the month to…

    The Greater More Awesomer Creative Writer Personage

    Recently, I got this vanity organizer thingie for my sink. I have this tiny bathroom right now, so all of my hair ties and clips and brushes and miniature beauty product samples (because I’m obsessed) were scattered all over the sink, and I never wanted to clean it because it was just too overwhelming to move all this stuff because my OCD insists I put everything back exactly where it was before, complete with chaos. So DUDES, I feel like I have a whole new bathroom! It feels bigger. I feel like I can breathe. Every time I walk in I can’t help but smile. ^_^¬†Ah, yes, I do believe…
