Back on Blogger!

Had my fun with wordpress...back to blogger for me! Too many options on wordpress, I'm a simple girl when it comes to website options and techie stuff.

I will be copying the posts from my other site onto here over the next few weeks (when I have time!) But for now, enjoy some photos of my Shiba Inu Louie!

The Great Switch!

(I just finished watching 'The Great Escape," feeling dramatic at the moment!)

Welcome! If you see a pink up there ^, then you're at my new site! I decided to make the switch after tons of positive WordPress feedback form various sources, and the fact that a way to move my followers was found. :)

If you still see orange up there ^, click HERE. Please follow me again, or bookmark me, or however you want to kept updated.

Midterms started last Monday, so I completely spaced the whole blog thing for the week. Oops!

NaNo started yesterday! I hit my goal of 2k! Ended with 2028. Shooting for another 2k today. After homwork. I really want that 3.5 GPA this semester.

Happy Writing to you all!

Ready for NaNo?

I am! I have a very loose outline. I am not comfortable with that. I want a tight outline, but I still can't figure out the middle.

I will have one mid-term after NaNoWriMo starts - sucky. At least it's not till the 5th.

Sadly, I have class the morning of the 1st, so staying up late and starting at midnight is not in the cards for me. I am so writing while in class. I swear, my professor repeats everything he says on Monday, on Wednesday. If it weren't for attendance rules...


Are YOU ready? (If you're participating...:D)

It's Friday?

I woke up this morning and swore it was only Wednesday. This week went by crazy fast.

As for my possible switch to WordPress - I got excited. We found a way to move my followers. Then the server started having issues.

 Went down for maybe an hour the other day, having issues right now. I'm not switching until they get it figured out. I don't want to send you to a slow and crashing website!

Means I'm shelving the website moving until after midterms. They start Monday, end Friday.

Probably why I'm so frazzled!

And we have a minor emergency here, Zeus ran out of chewies! The world is ending! So I am off on an emergency store run, and I'm praying he doesn't chew anything up while I'm gone. He hasn't been left home alone without a chewie in a long time. Last time he chewed up something. My husband's xbox headset I think. And some paper.

He loves paper. So odd.

Middle drama!

I know how it ends, and how it begins. How she gets from being a hard ass reporter to being a 100% selfless person is an issue.
 

I'm lost, and I'm only at the outline stage! 

How do you get through the dreaded middle?

Quick Post - Poll

Blogger or WordPress?

I love the WordPress design, but I'll lose all my lovely followers. Blogger is just super simple.

Hmm.


Lemme know what you think!

Why?

One little question that can cause so much angst and joy.

I've found asking myself why after every little bit of action has added depth and a realism to my stories. It's a recent discovery and as I am still a fledgling writer, I'm sure many of you already do that.


Author - A
Critic (muse in disguise.) - C

A: FMC moves to Smallville USA
C: Why?
A: Because that's where she meets the love of her life!
C: But why does she move there?
A: Uhh...

A: Teenage MC runs away.
C: Why?
A: Because she thinks the cops are after her.
C: Why does she think that?
A: I don't know, but I know she needs to be running from the cops so she won't call them when the bad guy harasses her then finally kidnaps her and keeps her locked in a basement.
C: Uh huh. Did she do drugs?
A: No! She would never touch drugs!
C: Did she steal something?
A: No! She would never steal!
C: Did she do anything illegal?
A: No! She's a very good person.
C: Then why would she be afraid of the police?
A: Uhh...


C: Wait, why was MC in the bus crash?
A: Because MC has to take the bus to get around.
C: Why didn't he take his car that he bought last chapter?
A: Uhh...

And so on. (Not the best examples in the world, just what's popping in my brain at the moment.)

One little word can cause major transformations if asked at the right moment.

Yay writing!
