Dear Old Inkpop

So yesterday, I posted Theoretically Speaking on inkpop, and after just a few minutes, someone already critiqued it! Which was pretty awesome and definitely not expected.

So anyway, just wanted to let people know that TS is now back on inkpop, with a "new" chapter. I use quotation marks because the beginning of that chapter (first page or so) was just tweaked a bit, but then I added a whole new scene at the end of it.

The next chapter - a whole new one - will be added soon :)

Let's see how inkpop goes this time!

Here's a link for those who want to read it:

Birthday Girl

That's moi for the day ^_^

I wish that would give me a pass to skip classes and work though. I don't get the point of this title if it doesn't give you the right to do much. Sighs. I spent the first hour or so of today working on a paper, and then I've got work at 9am, and then classes, and then homework for tomorrow. Great way to celebrate my coming into adulthood >_>

On the bright side, I can't wait to celebrate my birthday this weekend with my friends ^_^ On the not-so-bright side, I don't think it'll include cake :(

I've Been Thinking...

I usually don't start a sentence with 'I've been thinking,' because I always get suspicious looks.

But anyway, I've been thinking about a couple of things this week. One, I seriously need to find a purpose for this blog. And I will...soon. Hopefully. Any ideas for what I could do with this? Especially writing related.

Second thing is, I also need to find a new layout for this blog. I'm tired of this one, but I'm just a bit too lazy to go find a really nice layout somewhere.

Another thing I decided was to finally return to inkpop. My friend and I spent months just going from one writing website to another, trying to find a good one, but we sort of gave up. Each one we found was worse than the previous one. She completely gave up but I decided to go back to inkpop.
Soooo...that means I'll repost Theoretically Speaking, and this new completely spur of the moment story I started working on a few weeks ago. It's called Kismet (more about it in another post), and although I really don't have much of a clue where that story's headed, my sister told me to post it. Right now, I'm setting the date to post both of these books on October 21st.

Good news for Theoretically Speaking is that I actually got a few chapters written over the last few weeks. So it'll actually get updated on a regular basis xD

P.S. any ideas for what I can do about this little blog, just leave it in the comments :)

Until next time! ^_^

College is Killing Me and my Writing

Well, not really my writing. All the writing I've done since I moved to Jersey has been pretty good. I actually haven't deleted anything that I've written - just edited it, which is a first for me. I've even started the sequel to STA (before I moved, I sort of deleted it because I hated what I had).

The only problem is that I don't have enough time to write. Or to have a social life. Or to read. Or to blog. Or to do anything that doesn't involve homework. I'm taking this French class on France in the 18th century and we're reading a new French novel every week. It's tiring and boring. I fall asleep every time I pick up the book. And the books are full of satire that I don't even understand. Sighs.

But - there's always a but with me :P - college is actually pretty good. I'm actually learning so much. I know - I'm in college, of course I should be learning new stuff but somehow, a part of me was sort of expecting it to be like high school. I felt like high school was a waste of time. I don't think I learned much there. And all this knowledge that I'm getting here, I'm using it in my books and it makes me feel so smart sometimes xD Ever feel that way? You learn something new and you just have to include it in one of your books? I've got all this philosophy knowledge in my head right now and I'm just waiting for the perfect idea to come along to include it in. Problem is, I've already got close to a gazillion ideas that are already on hold -_-

My Online Shopping Spree

After the dozens of blog posts I've read about Anna and the French Kiss, I've decided to buy it. Let's see if it's as amazing as everyone says it is :P

And there was such a great discount for it on Amazon that I couldn't not get it. It was $6.80 for a hardcover copy of it. Plus, I have this one-month free trial of the Prime Amazon card (or whatever it's called). Basically, I'm getting free shipping for a month, whether or not my purchase is over $25. So I'm totally taking advantage of that xD

I also ordered The Power of Six, which is the sequel to I Am Number Four. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint. Plus, I ordered the seventh book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost (One Grave at a Time).

But meh. I haven't even had time to read Richelle Mead's Bloodlines yet, so I have no clue when I'll have time to read all those books I'm ordering.
