NaNo Fail & Misadventures

So, even though I planned on participating in NaNoWriMo, I failed epically. I knew that it was going to be tough because of university life, but I couldn’t even scratch the surface of my story. So, unfortunately, I got nowhere. I suppose that I can always participate next year, but I can’t help feeling like I failed. Which I basically did, ha ha.

On the plus side, classes are almost over. I have two papers, one test, and a final scene before I’m done for the fall! Not to mention, my birthday is on the 21st – woo hoo! I can’t wait to go home and celebrate with family/friends. 🙂

NaNoWriMo

So I’m going to be participating in NaNoWriMo this year! I’m so nervous about it because I’ve never tried it before, and I still don’t really know what I plan on writing about. I have a general idea, but it’s still fairly new. However, I am excited. I have a few friends who are doing it, as well. Although I don’t expect to win or get very far, I think it would be great to try something new. If you’re participating in Nano, please feel free to let me know so I can add you as a buddy! 😀

Autumn Approaches, But The Ocean Beckons

Living in a state that doesn’t experience many seasons always seems to make me feel like I’m missing out on something. The leaves don’t change colors, nor do they become crisp and fall off of their respective trees. Although I love where I live, I sometimes wish that there was more variety throughout the year. I wish that I could have the experience of walking through a park littered with red and gold leaves, and that I could feel the crunch underneath my feet. It always seems so magical and mysterious. I suppose, however, that if I had the choice of living near the ocean or actually experience seasons, I would forever choose the ocean. I don’t do well in places where I can’t smell the sea air. So maybe it’s a trade off. Dolphins and eternal mystery instead of seasons. I think I can live with that.
