Happy Thanksgiving everyone. As you know I participated in NaNoWriMo again. I won and it feels good to know I can have drafts which make me feel so intertwined and lost within the characters like the books I read. For instance, there is a book I just finished and I loved it. It was wonderfully written and I can’t wait to get to read more of her books. It’s a great read and I hope you all can check it out.
Filthy Beautiful Lies by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I felt Kendall did a fantastic job. The book had me stirring wondering what was going to happen between them. I loved it.

As you know I have been writing my story by hand. Since it’s November, I have chosen to use the story for NaNoWriMo. I have already reached 50,000 words. At the same time the story is not finished yet. I am enjoying the time I get when I sit down and write. I am using Wattpad as a means of where to write the story to share it for NaNoWriMo. Just knowing I can have the moments of revelation when I’m writing again, has been making me very happy. I am close to finished. Of course, as you all know handwriting a story is way different from when you are typing the story. It takes up a whole lot more time. The speed of it seems to be way different as well.
I have friends who have asked me what made me choose to handwrite this story. I know it’s because for one I have always handwritten my stories. It’s just this time I felt like because my Microsoft Word is down, it was more necessary. Then again as a true writer you can always resort back to the basics. That’s neither here or there. Anyways, I am also just about finished with my reading challenge for this year too. I have changed my goal from 100 books to 80 books. I am proud of myself for actually trying to do as much as I am doing. Even at work, things are doing great. I’m starting to get better with learning certain aspects of it. I am just feeling especially cheerful about all of it.
Hey everyone I have been writing and enjoying working. My story is coming along well with doing it by hand. I have been thinking about posting some of my work on here. Let me know what you think.
This day off has been a great one. I have written a full chapter. My story Broken and Mended is coming together the way I want it. You can read it on @Wattpad. I also joined a new contest on Wattpad. I feel good knowing I can write and just embrace the emotions and put them to good use. I give a good shout out to my best friend. She knew the right words to get me into my mojo. I think that’s one of the good things about having a best friend. They know you as much as your parents do. They don’t judge you and they are there for all the ups and downs.
You know I still got to have music playing while I’m writing. I don’t think I will ever give it up. It keeps me going and I stay in the zone.
It’s now August and things are way different since the last time I had posted. I have a different job. This job is wonderful. I love the people and the job itself. That’s a great thing in my book. I have finished transferring Tangled and Challenged. I have decided it will only be on Wattpad and Goodreads for right now. I am working on Broken and Mended. I’m doing very well with it.
I know it has been a while. I am in a new position in my life. I didn’t win CampNanowrimo this year. Yet, I am still writing. I have been transferring Tangled and Challenged into a notebook and posting it up on @Wattpad. I have now posted 42 chapters. It now has 53 reads. It still makes me feel good to know people are reading my work. I have been working a lot lately. I don’t work in the same place anymore. The new job I have has been great for the past two months. My coworkers are like my family now. We bond really well and we crack each other up.
I am going to get back into posting soon. I’m just trying to get everything straight between Tangled and Challenged and Broken and Mended. Broken and Mended is on hold for right now. I just really want to finish transferring Tangled and Challenged. I put it off for so long. Now, it’s just about getting it completely in two other places. I do this so in case something happens to my computer or my flash drive, I will have it.
I have finished writing Tangled and Challenged. I have posted the story up on Goodreads first. I put the first chapter up on @Wattpad. I am excited to find out what people think. I am already starting to put into a notebook. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t. I know it takes a lot of handwriting. I think it will help. I have been getting things ready for me to start college. It will be here soon. This time things should go as planned. I am hoping to score better on the college placement test. I didn’t care for my scores last time. I am keeping hope alive. I am thinking about what to write for CampNanowrimo next month. I am going to come up with something.
I know I can do it. I am going to try to plan it out first. There are tons of things I can write about. It’s the matter of putting it together the right way.
