- I mastered She's Loves You (The Beatles) on the piano! (the easy version...)
- I cleaned my room! (stuffing junk into crevices and drawers where they cannot be seen)
- I wrote 2,000 words! (C'est vrai!) :)
I don't know how I did it, but I did. Now I'm at 4,300 words or so, which is slightly better than 2,000. Slightly.
Now on to the survey-thinga-ma-bobber!
1. What's the last thing you wrote? What's the first thing you wrote that you still have?
The last thing I wrote was, what I think, is a touching scene between my MC and his dying grandfather. The first thing I wrote I still have?! (*Thinks back to all the books I made when I was little about a worm and a butterfly going to school that came with illustrations drawn by moi*). Yikes! I think my mother threw them out. :( Otherwise, I have this diary from first grade that talks about me and Elmo's adventures. Does that count?
2. Write poetry?
When I feel poetic.
3. Angsty poetry?
If you can call a poem titled "Essays Will Be the Death of Me" angsty, then yes.
4. Favorite genre of writing?
Young Adult, Fantasy, Literary, Mainstream, Historical. Oops, that's too many. Well, any young adult book unless it deals with crime/mystery, horror, or scifi.
5. Most annoying character you've ever created?
Hmm...well, the first novel I attempted to write (it never got finished, but is still pending at chapter 41) had a handful of annoying characters. Her name was Madeleine, no, Madeline, wait, Madeliene. Well, I forgot how to spell her name, but she was annoying. It was one of those FOTSODTP things. She was really stupid (sorry, Maddy) and really her actions were just to develop the plot. I find those kinds of characters annoying - like they don't have a sensible thought in their head. They're all just like robots, doing whatever the writer tells them to, for the sake of the plot.
6. Best Plot you've ever created?
The plot I'm working on now. :)
7. Coolest Plot twist you've ever created?
(This was for my Nano) In the beginning, he was just using her to get to her father, but now he's fallen in love with her and he is very, very sorry for using her. Erm. Actually, that might not be the "coolest" plot twist, but more of a cliched one, I admit.
8. How often do you get writer's block?
*pushes buttons on calculator* Around every 2.4 days. :)
9. Write fan fiction?
"Birds don't sing like that. Not high-pitched like those bouncy pop singers on TV nowadays nor low, like a whale's. But it was a language similar to that of whales - secret and enchanting. Only a voice that could be achieved by angels on high clouds, lamenting with sweet voice droning and clear notes wavering. The music of waves. The song of seashells when put to the ear, wondering how the ocean got there."
