A writing project that I'd been working on for over a year (which is basically shaping up into a very long novel) is finally starting to turn into a real physical thing. This is still only preliminary work for it - notes, research and outlines rather than the actual thing, but it's still very satisfying to actually hold something that actually has weight and feel after wrestling with it in your head for months and spending many nights typing it into a computer. And goddamn, 140,000 words of printed text when it's just "preliminary work" and "outlines" is nothing to shake a stick at D:

(kinda hard to tell, but that is indeed a stack of a couple of hundred printed pages)

Now to sit on it for a couple of months, work out the kinks, and flesh out the actual thing. Will probably take me the better part of the next couple of years at least, but hey, this is a pretty good place to be already. This probably also partially explains my relative inactivity as far as AMVs lately >__>

Was cooped up in my room for a good while and did not want to go outside; refused to even see people.
I guess I just get into that phase sometimes. But I've been going out lately and spending time with family and friends and it feels damn good. :up:
Also, I've been writing so I can get my very own novel published. Feels like I've accomplished something. So yep, I'm satisfied right now, haha. |:>

I have 10 finished diaries of my life. Maybe I should publish them and make a Princess Diaries of my own...although my life isn't that of a princess.

BTW nice to know there are writers in this forum. I love writing

Yeah, I love writing about everything and anything. Reading, writing. Even about history. It's so interesting.
History is interesting and there's a lot to write about and discuss so it's a win.

If any one of you ends up publishing their novel, please hit me up. I'd love to read it.

You're welcome. Thank you, that means a lot. Although I'm not really attractive, haha.

Oh girl that is not true. Every girl is attractive but the most beautiful ones are the ones with a good heart soul and spirit.

I've been to the movies more often the past two weeks than I have in a long time. We're The Millers, The World's End, and Now You See Me were all a lot of fun, and The Spectacular Now was an interesting take on the manic pixie dream girl type. All in all, it's been a good vacation, even if I have fallen a bit behind on schoolwork. Tomorrow starts my long drive back.

ps - less than two weeks til AWA!

Okay, I'm sensing a common theme here. Who's doing NaNoWriMo? I'm writing an outline currently for the first episode in a series novella I am wanting to do. I also recently finished a rough first draft of my second film screenplay. Needs a bunch of work still, but after a "creative conference," I am very happy with the feedback. :shark:
