NaNoWriMo... here's why not.

If you can do NaNoWriMo, that's awesome, but that's not how I write, so I'm not gonna do it. I need to be focusing on my schoolwork, anyway. I'm writing a short story for school, and should probably write something to be published in the school literature periodical, but I probably won't do that. I really want to write more for my books. That's coming along nicely, and I'm really liking some of the material that I'm coming up with, at least as springboard ideas.

By the way, I miss my adblocker for Firefox. I neeeeeeed to install that for my apple. But I won't be on myspace after this semester ends, so I'm not too worried about it right now. Ads piss me off.

Homework is coming along nicely. I'm learning how to write, and how to revise! That's the important thing.

I got some more writing for my book project done last night, too. The ideas that I'm getting for this project are really fun. I'm enjoying this so much, every day is better than the last :)

Driving is fun

I just spent three and a half hours in the car picking up supplies from Boulder, and then dropping off other supplies to a client in Fort Collins. That was awesome. It gave me something to do today, which is good because by the time I get done with lunch, I'll have very little work left for the day. Maybe I'll try to leave early.

Not much to say, really. Just thought I'd let you know I'm still here. And I'm okay.

Work is going alright, and school is still kick-ass. I really like my assignments. I'm supposed to write a short story for part of my final portfolio. I already told all of you that. I'm having some cool ideas, too. This is really fun.

Alrighty then.

Have I mentioned?

I HATE MYSPACE!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that clear? I had to create a myspace for the protagonist in my short story, and I'm still hating the site. Will somebody do me a favor and break Tom's thumbs? Maybe go back in time and stop him from creating the damn site! AGH

too long

too long between updates. Not much to say. I'm busy spending time with Emily. We've ordered the cake, and now all we need to do is book the service people. Jeremy and Justin should have been fitted for tuxes this week.

Writing is going well and I'm creating a short story for me Creative writing class. I'm going to write a Flatiron City episode. I may actually submit it to a magazine, too.

Oh bother

I don't feel like doing anything. I just beat Halo 3 with Gabe, but now I want to sleep, or watch tv, or play video games some more. I just don't want to do homework or work on my book, or work tomorrow. I just want to sleep in and then go down to Colorado Springs with Emily tomorrow. I need a day off.

I want to cook something. Emily's dozing next to me as I watch Iron Chef America. I'm thinking I want to make Shepherd's Pie and Guinness Bread. That would be the main course, then finished off with Banana Pudding with Nilla Wafers (an oldie but a goody). Some hot apple cider with cinnamon (or red hots) and vanilla vodka to drink. That would be good. I think I need to do that.....soon!

I've been working on writing, and I'm creating some awesome stuff for my story. I don't know when I'll start writing because I keep coming upon things that I need to expand on, all while I create characters. I need to finish homework, too, but that won't be difficult.

Back to my show.

No....that's impossible

Ok, so we are attempting to run at %200 capacity for the shop this week. The problem isn't that we just don't have the gear, or that we don't have the space on the truck for the deliveries, or that we don't have the's all of those plus the fact that we need three more people....and that's in a "perfect" version of this situation. Assuming we owned all of the gear and had the trucks available, we still need THREE MORE PEOPLE! Otherwise, it's just not possible to do in three days.

Oh yeah, and I'm staying late today....Not going to happen again!

Waahhhhh ha ha haaaa >:P

I'm tired, and as a result, work is more difficult to deal with. I don't know why I'm tired, I did, after all, get eight hours of sleep. I think I'm overwhelmed with the complete lack of perfection that this week is turning into. We have too much stuff going out of the shop and not enough people to handle the work load, or enough equipment for that matter.

I'm not mad, I'm tired. I want to sleep and cry.

Ho hi there

I've been working on my characters a little, but I've been too consumed with school and Emily to really focus that much. On the bright side, I think I have a few other people to put into the story, and I'll be writing some short stories soon. I don't have anything new for Flatiron City, yet, but that may come with time, especially with the prose portion of my creative writing class coming up.

I'm enjoying class, it's so much fun to learn creative techniques for writing.

Emily and I are going to go look for a ring for me today, but I don't know what other plans we have. Eleven weeks until the wedding! Hurray!
