-2,000 Words Later

So, Hayley missed Thirds Day*tear*, and she remembered it at about four a.m. when Mac and Finn decided it was time to wake up. Yay!

So, last night while watching Bones and Grey's I was rereading the most recent snippet of He's With Me, and figured out what had caused my block that made me flip out when Nov. started. So I cut over 2,000 words and think I've figured it out. I also found the opening I wrote for my WIP of Untitled Proportions, located, wait try and guess...in my messy bedroom, that I cleaned today!

Oh and then I jumped onto the computer and found out that I won an book (my first contest win yeah!^__^) on the lovely Sara's blog, (you know she was my first writer friend, yes I'm serious, she is the coolest) in celebration of ISPAW, which is like the coolest Pirate holiday ever! I'm serious, I love the entire crew of the Rapid Meander, so much that I read the story during my classes the first few weeks of school. Yeah, Lu and Yazoo overheard a lot about the graphing of algebraic equations, sentence structure and U.S. history. But it was so worth it, because the story is freakin' amazing. Thank you Sara, I will email you soon!

So yeah, I have some writing to catch up on and a lot of reading to do, and maybe a football game to attend later tonight, maybe haven't decided if I will muster the school spirit, maybe just to see my friends in the pep band-hehe. Oh and my friend Brian well, I can't talk about it just yet, but I will soon, I love Brian he's awesome but I can't talk about it yet. So you'll have to wait a little while and then trust me you'll know.

Oh did anyone notice that I finally learned how to link things? Yes, I know I should have figured it out awhile ago, seeing as I've been blogging for a month, and I didn't I admit it is very sad but I figured it out.

THAT'S where Peat learned to do algebraic equations? I wondered why he kept getting really excited about Yazoo's maps and trying to draw all these lines and numbers that didn't make any sense...

Cutting 2000 words isn't the most fun, but if it helps your story and makes it so you can move forward then it's a good thing!

Lol it took me a long time to figure out how to link too!

Actually, it wasn't until recently (last month) that I realized there was a 'compose' style instead of just 'edit html'. I'm clueless when it comes to html, so I hadn't been able to center, or enlarge any text. I've been blogging for almost a year! haha.

Sara-Tell Yazoo I'm sorry I didn't realize that Peat would go all mini math genius on him and that the maps would become victim to my algebra homework. But it must have been funny...
Kat-Exactly though cutting 2,000 words hurt, I know that it will make my story better. And its so nice to know that I'm not the only one who's blog challenged.

Sounds likes things are working out. Don't worry, I cut over 800 words on day 3 of NaNo. It hurts, hey?

You have no idea how excited I am that you're going to a football game!! Will there be cheerleaders?
Sorry, I read too much Sweet Valley High as a kid...

Jade-Yeah it hurts, and I totally bailed and didn't go to the football game. But my team did have an epic win and it was telecast by our local news station. And trust me you don't want to see our cheerleaders, they are kind of not so good, a couple they're awesome but others are eh. Course I'm not one to talk I'm not corrdinated at all. But I will be going to a game next week, and on the 20th. So I'll get there eventually.
