On All Hallow’s Eve

Yes, every post is most likely to be about this ghoulish holiday, but I’m not really focused on that at the moment (maybe a little later).

It is also the day before NaNoWriMo begins and I think I will be joining and finishing. This is going to be my first attempt and I’m a bit shaken up. It’s all about setting goals and loving the idea you have in mind. I’m also not too keen on joining the threads and forums at the moment, even though I want to. I am fully aware of my old post on the anonymity of the internet and how it provides a free ticket to confidence and self-building for introverts, like myself. Honestly, I’m terrified with what reactions I might get if I post anything there. It’s childish, I know, but I still feel that way.

I know I gotta build up the strength to be more open to others freely. It will greatly help me in making friends and reaching my goal to get 50,000 words uploaded in my entry for this month long writing spree. I’m positive at one point (or maybe even more) I will be needing help and ideas. I’m hoping to get a great experience out of this. This will be hard for me to juggle with my classes, but I will get more done before school starts.

Is anyone joining NaNoWriMo? Maybe we can be Writing Buddies? My NaNoWriMo username is pagechanger22.

Now, on a different note…

Is anyone or everyone excited with Halloween? Do horror writers love this holiday like I imagine? This is a night of creativity and the sky is the limit when it comes to the written world. We see weird and odd costumes up and about and they may all inspire something in our creative spirits. I enjoyed Halloween as a kid and I still do. I now crave to stuff myself with sweets, but that’s not totally feasible. I could get away with it as a kid, but not so as an adult.

Happy Halloween!

Happy writing for NaNoWriMo writers! The climb begins tomorrow! 😀

Always be inspired!



Vacation Time

My 3-week vacation started out with me joining a training to aide my nursing career and studies. It was tiring and it left me with so little energy to update this like I planned. I am currently on week number 2, which is almost over, and I only have one week left.

This past week, I spent most of my time editing my first manuscript. I managed to shave off some unnecessary parts and words. I have been able to see more errors and things that should be cleaned up. I am on my way to making my first manuscript a better one.

Reading around writing articles, thanks to Writer’s Digest online, I learned that sometime you just need to let your works in progress to sit alone for a while. It helps us gain a better perspective on what we wish to send out to future readers, when we  are given the great chance to be published. It’s such a tedious task for people who don’t feel the dedication to being a writer. It doesn’t feel so tedious to me. I enjoy editing my work. I get laughs from the simple mistakes I’ve made from long ago. I also see how much I’ve overwritten simple scenes.

How do you feel about editing and writing and editing again? Do you love it or dread it?

Be inspired as always!
