Currently // September 2016

We’ve come to the end of another month and, as always, I want to share with you all that is going on with me, all the changes I have made, and what I am looking forward to. This is what I am currently:

Writing a ton of notes and ideas and maybe my first ever outline for my first ever novel. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year, maybe, probably, I dunno, I’m really scared. I’ve got a few characters in mind, a few ideas for a plot, and little more. Wish me luck and if you’re participating let me know maybe we can be writing buddies or something.

Planning my blog posts three whole months in advance, as a serious blogger should. Be warned, though, because of this little novel writing thing you may see a reduction in post frequency. I’ll try not to abandon you for too long at a time.

Making the most of all of my newly found free time. I know it doesn’t look like much is going on around here, but I promise you every day a little progress is made behind the scenes, changes to the blog, changes to my newsletter, a few things written for that zine I’m never going to finish, and more!

Anticipating the release of two movies this month. First, The Handmaiden, an erotic psychological thriller about a young Japanese Lady and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but is secretly plotting to defraud her of a large inheritance. Second, Moonlight, about an African-American man who struggles to be himself over three periods of his life, trying to come out but also stay faithful.

Reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I know it’s a classic and all, but I’m not sure I like it. I’m already a third of the way through so I’m going to finish it up, but it’s got to be the most predictable book ever written, ever.

Watching American Horror Story: Roanoke. This season is by far the best one and the only one to genuinely creep me out. I worry that, like every season of American Horror Story, it’s going to get sloppy and scattered very soon leaving me disappointed and sad.

Feeling the Halloween spirit! I hate fall, but I love everything about Halloween. I love the pumpkins, I love the haunted houses, I love the costumes, and I especially love all the scary movies.

Needing a new snake baby. Yes, I love snakes. I have two already Delilah and Ava, but I want another one. I just need space and my girlfriend’s okay. She’s worried about spending more money on frozen mice and electricity for the heating pads. I’m wearing her down slowly.

Loving candy corn! I know it’s weird and the texture is a little bit like candle wax, but I can’t help myself, it so good. I buy bag after bag of the sugary goodness and eat and eat until my stomach hurts. Luckily in a few weeks, they’ll stop selling the stuff.

Hating this goddamn election. I love politics, I really do, but this election has been a joke from the beginning. To be clear, Trump and his campaign are the joke I speak of, and it is Trump in particular whom I hate.

Hoping that this winter won’t be so bad. I know I’ve spent a lot of time whining about winter, and unfortunately, I am going to keep on whining until April. It helps me cope. I’m sorry I’m not sorry.

  1. NaNoWriMo is nothing to fear. Think of it as just another way of helping to discipline yourself for 30 days. The only way to “lose” is to not write anything for a month. :-) And I’m looking forward to reading the novel that’s bursting to get out of you.

  2. Yay for NaNoWriMo! I’m thinking of doing it, but I’m debating starting a ‘clean’ account, seeing as you can’t change your username. (Sigh.)

    Three months in advance?! You are at a level of organisation that I would love to be at.
