It’s Finally Here!!!

National Novel Writing Month is upon us. It snuck up in the middle of the night with ideas galore.

Now to buckle down and write. I will report back each day on my progress. Goal for today 1,666 words. I have 47 written thus far.

Let the words start flowing!!


Monday Monday Monday

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?

Are you ready?

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.

Welcome to the Ice House

So what does this mean? It’s simple it’s means I stayed home and I am going to do alot of writing today. Or i plan to! I hope. I have had one cup of coffee down and have checked my inbox and filtered through the important news. I even posted an excerpt from one of the stories I wrote a few years back for NANO month. I have completed three years so far. What about you? If you don’t know it’s National Novel Writing month and it happens in November! You have a month to write 50,000 words. I am thinking about taking this to the next level and choosing 3 months out of the year and writing a novel each month. What do you think? I think I can do it can you?

Okay so in other news, I started the 12 week challenge with my awesome coach Ginger who is there to support me. It’s a program through the Medi-Fast diet plan. You should check it out. seems easy enough.

I finally cleaned out my office now I need to get some plastic to put on the windows in there. It’s freezing. It’s the only room in the house that has poor heat circulation! Got any ideas, please let me know. 

Oh and I am going to do some ZUMBA today. I thought I had let my mom borrow all of my DVDs because she begged and pleaded for them. I miss my morning classes with the lovely Heather at Nautilus, but it conflicts with my work schedule!  I will make this happen. I will post tomorrow if it happened or not. 

Oh and a new app to download to keep you in check about logging your food and such is called PACT. You have log your food and exercise. If you don’t you pay. Literally! They will take money out of your account. There is no excuse to be lazy anymore. It will cost you. In turn if you keep your pact they reward you with cash. So I have signed up to simply log my food.  Check it out its in your local app store. 

So that’s all for Monday check in! I’ll see you tomorrow.

Oh and I started semester six at Southern New Hampshire University’s online program!! I am seeking my Bachelor of English. It will be my third Bachelor’s degree, but hopefully I will be able to use this degree unlike the others.
