Preparation is Nearing Completion

The insanity of NaNoWriMo is very close to bursting upon my life with all the craziness that goes on behind it. You know, that little thing called life, that, despite all the joking of forgetting it in November, must go on.

I had wanted a full outline to follow this year, but unless some miracle ensues that's not going to be the case. I managed to get up to chapter seven, which was actually further then I thought I would get, and has helped out more then I thought it would. It's very possible if I can get ahead of my word count I may just stop and continue my outline. Hopefully it will be worth the trouble.

I have loaded almost all of Celtic Thunder's songs onto my i-pod, not only in preparation of NaNoWriMo, but also the concert I shall be attending shortly.

Today my friend (a fellow WriMo) and I are going to bake cookies, rice crispy treats, and pie so we'll be able to feed ourselves while we write. I fully expect my best writing to emerge at four in the morning after eating a dozen cookies.

So, NaNoWriMo, once again I will say, I'm ready for you. At least, as ready as I'll ever be.

A Lazy Autumn Day

Excerpt from Georgie's journal.

It's raining outside, convincing me that it is, in fact, Autumn. I'm still in my pajamas despite the afternoon looming right around the corner.

Minnie is curled up by my feet, trying to gather all the warmth she can into her soft, fuzzy, little body.

The whole day stretches on before me. I need to catch up on some school and study for my permit. I'm hoping through some miracle I'll be able to get it this week.

Millions of story ideas are tumbling about in my writer's brain and yet even before November has begun, NaNo calls. My outline is not even half way finished and this year I want a complete outline to follow.

Maybe I'll be able to chat with my Sam. I've been loving being able to at least say hello every day again. I can't wait to see her again. I'm not sure when I will, I miss her far to much.

Hopefully today will also hold some quite moments. Moments to simply sit and reflect on God's amazing creation and His glorious love for even me.

Sing Unto The Lord

Hello Beautiful. You and me are gonna start spending a lot of time together. We shall sing and praise the Lord.

Psalm 68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah.

I've slowly been discovering that I love many different forms of writing. Short stories, articles, fantasy novels, historical fiction novels, now-a-days fiction novels, blog posts, and last year, much to my surprise, I added poems to the list.

I'm not very good, and it rarely happens, but every now and then a line pops into my head and a poem evolves around it. My poems document has been slowly growing though, so I figured I would share one with my readers.

If it's really terrible you're welcome to throw rotten veggies at me.


I cast around the darkness
For something to hold on to
I've heard about Your kindness

One word is whispered in my ear
A word that holds such promise
The enemy wishes me not to hear

When all seems lost
I still cling to one thing
No matter the cost

To all the living
There will always be
You are always forgiving

Eternally Your light will shine
Your love will continue forever
My heart, Your mercy will refine

Oh NaNoWriMo, When Shall Ye Arrive?

Dear NaNoWriMo,

I have been ready for you to come for months now. In fact, about a month after you left the last time, I was ready to start all over again.

My plot is pretty much developed to its fullest, and what hasn't we'll figure out together. We have before.

Inspiration has been here for awhile now. Junk Food is easily at hand. We are simply waiting for you before starting the party.

Yours Truly,

The Genius of Mr. Disney

"Laughter is timeless.
Imagination has no age.
And dreams are forever."
- Walt Disney

I love this quote. So much, I added it to my e-mail signature so every time I send an e-mail someone reads it.

It's so perfect and it would take someone like Walt Disney to say it.

The Fight For Life

The war continues to save the millions of lives that so many believe aren't worth saving. Abortion. So many don't give the subject the time of day. So many don't know their opinion on the matter. Many don't know the real facts behind this mass murder that goes on everyday.

I've recently been noticing this subject more, for several factors. The first being the fact that Starbucks supports Planned Parenthood.

My friend Laura has suggested a boycott. Supporting Starbucks is indirectly supporting abortion, and if you're going to say you're ProLife, live your belief. So many people support this company, how many of those believe in life? How many are willing to stand up for that belief?

Another thing that stuck out to me was a video that has been going around in my group of friends on facebook. I had never heard of Gianna Jessen, but just watching this video has made me a fan. Her words almost brought tears to my eyes, and I don't cry very often. Please watch these videos. They're worth your time.

God gave her life for a reason. I pray her voice will make an impact on many and make thousands of people uncomfortable.

Don't brush the subject of abortion off. If your not sure what you think of the subject I encourage you to look into it. Please be sure to ask your parents first. Study your Bible. Pray about it, but don't ignore it. Don't brush off murder.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. ~ Genesis 2:7

I've recentally discovered I'm in love with Celtic Thunder... their music, that is. Anyway, this is my favorite right now. I'm sure it will change again. :)
