I just wrote the scene of Melinden's father's death.
HOLY CRAP! It's gory. Scary gory. I'm stunned I could THINK of something like that.
Excuse me while I go hug my children!

Oh. Wow.
20k. On day 10. That's an average of 2k a day :O
I ... wow.
It's not all great. In fact, most of it sucks, but a lot of it? I like it.
It's definitely never going to get published.
It's not even following DnD anymore.

He's such a dork. But he had fun waiting for the bus. I guess I can be nice and let them play. As long as no one gets injured.

I’m just totally and completely over today. I don’t have any motivation to write, but I’m doing it because I have to. I have to meet my word count goals. I feel like a piece of crap when I don’t. So, I’m writing to write. Not writing to push my story, but to write. Just to write. I hate that it’s day 2, and I’ve already hit that point. I have such big plans for my story but nowhere to take it because right now, my soul is going “this isn’t for you” It’s not saying that about writing. It’s saying it about the sprint hosting. I feel like I’m a bit of a failure. I’m losing my cool so easily, and so fast. That isn’t normal for me. I’m just sick and tired of the refusal to listen. The refusal to pay attention to the rules. The inability to read the rules. The complete and total lack of respect for the mods.

I don’t care that someone went “Ugh, rude” and left. I just don’t even care one single bit. Maybe that makes me a bad person, but I don’t even care about that. I’m tired of being a fucking little babysitter. The constant whining about word counts. Holy shit. It’s only day 2, and they’re already freaking out. No wonder they freaking quit by week 2. Ugh. I just … ugh. I can’t take it today. I’m ready for bed. I’m ready to just lose my shit on everyone and everything.

Maybe it was because I drank. Maybe it’s the stress from the kids being total little assholes today. I don’t know. It’s just an off shitty day. I need to go to sleep. I need a break. I need something, anything, to take my mind off of real life. I want to see what Melinden and Os do. I want to see Fruben get his ass kicked. I want Aldric to be able to come clean. I want to write my story. I don’t want to deal with this bullshit.
So, yeah, if Mel doesn’t do the sprints next year, yeah, I’m going to be done. I might be done anyway. Let them fucking deal with this shit on their own. Let the fucking complainers deal with their own shit for once. As Josh so accurately put it, since I know that sprints work for me, I can do my own. I can set my phone, an egg timer, etc. I have Write or Die. I’m set. I’m good.

No, I'm not failing at NaNo. I'm failing at being able to UPDATE MY WORD COUNT, but I'm not behind (I'm close to 5k, actually, so ahead).
No, just tired of dealing with asshats. REALLY tired of it.
Tired of people, period.

The Force

I wish this shit was real so I could just lop off everyone's fucking head.

The writing has begun. Not a huge amount, but it's only 8:30 am. I wrote 762 words before 12:25am.
Now, I'm ready for a nap. I've been up for 90 minutes, and didn't fall asleep until 1am. I didn't sleep straight through either.

WEll, back to writing I go!

I cannot believe that in just under 2 hours, I can start writing.
*runs around screaming*
Oh holy CRAP!
My main character, Linden, was sold into slavery, basically, by her father. She was sold to the thieves guild. They trained her. They guided her. They gave her skills she can use. They want payment for that. Linden just wants to be free to live her life, to go where she pleases, to do what she wants. The Guild isn’t about to let her just walk away. She has to finish out her jobs.
She wants a clean break, so she doesn’t have to continue to look over her shoulder, so she agrees. What she doesn’t realize is that the Guild wants her to fail. They send out a bounty hunter, Obsurn, to make sure that she fails. She’s one of their best rogues and they’re not going to give her up without a fight.
Osburn and Linden have a history. That history involves a lot of drama. Drama that hasn’t been fleshed out yet.
Linden isn’t happy that she has Osburn on her tail. She knows he’s there to make her fail. What she doesn’t know is that he’s fighting his own heart and doesn’t want to see her fail. He wants her to succeed. He wants her to have all that she desires in life.
Who will see their goal achieved? Will the Guild lose a member? Will hearts break?
The premise/synopsis of my story.
We'll see how it goes!

sarahcb1208: (MAGIC)
I'm seeing if cross-posting works.
We'll see!

You know what I wish? That I had automatic posting from Flickr to Dreamwidth!

That's all.

I can be excited now right? Also, yes, if you watch Disney Channel, Os looks a LOT like Gary Wild LOL!

I don't update often.
I don't comment often.
I read! I promise I read.

Lots of things have been going on.
Ethan's officially a Wolf in Boy Scouts. Madi is a Junior.
Popcorn sales are over.
Cookie sales have begun {hit me up if you want some}
