Okay I have a problem and I have 8 days to fix it!! Here it is,
I have entered into a Short Story challenge with NUC Midnight LLC. Its a fun contest, but it seems like every year I get landed with Historical Fiction.
This year I even prayed about it, but was still stuck with it. So I don’t even know where to begin. The other part of my assignment has to include a shoe shiner and then moving to a new city.
First I think of Mew York City and then I think of the Titanic. But O am sure that everyone in my group of twenty is going to write something about that. Then I thought of the stock market crash. So I think I will use this event to center my short story around.
Also I had to write a story based off f the movie “Moonrise Kingdom”. I’ll have to post it on here soon!
In other news I have lost ten pounds since the start of the nee year. Go me!! I have a long way to go! Wish me luck!!
So this weeks was quite successeful I think.
Here’s a brief recap:
Friday night I got off work and went home ate supper and went to bed. i was too excited for Nano to start. The following day I got up and went to work from 6am to 11am. I returned home to find that the house was a wreck, so I cleaned ate, an finished homework before diving into day one of writing.
I was able to 1344 words before leaving and heading out to a friends in the country for a bonfire and chili. it was tasty good and I overindulged and had 6 glasses of wine. Yes I felt it in the morning. It was rough, but that didn’t sop me from writing. I made a strong pot of coffee and then wrote until I had to go to the store.
By the time I returned home i was time for my lunch date with friends. We chatted and made a Norwegian dish called noodles and sausage. We also watched this new cartoon on Disney XD called Gravity Falls. it’s quite hilarious and outside of what the typical Disney show is. I would check it out. It reminds me of Rick and Morty. I know right, I was shocked too, but if you like Louise from Bob’s Burger’s then you’ll love this show because she does the voice of Mabel one of the main characters.
When my friends left and girlfriend went to work, I started writing again and put on some background noise courtesy of Shrek an The Proposal. If you haven’t seen The Proposal, you need to. It’s a great love story with Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock where she plays an Editor. It’s quite funny, here’s a clip.
Well it’s Monday and I have a full schedule: 2 20 page papers to edit and have ready to turn in on Sunday, plus nano writing and the start of a new semester of classes.
What’s your week look like?
It’s that time of year when creative ideas run rampant in my head. The other night I was awake for hours thinking of a story. I have outlined the novel I plan on writing for National Novel Writing Month. I hope it turns out good. What about you? Are you going to participate this year in NANO.
Other than that, I am struggling with my Grad work. I have let myself down in grad school. The last two weeks I have let myself down in that I have turned in less than satisfactory work o my teachers. I mean I got a D on one of my papers. This is not acceptable and I plan on rectifying it this week. We are studying one of my favorite theorist, Karl Marx. I hope to conqueor the discussion board and finish draft one of my twenty page paper.
What are you doing this lovely fall day?
On the book front, I have the final cover down and I am just waiting for the last 12 chapters from my editor and then it’s go time! I am so excited to share my work with you.
