TIME TO GET SPOOPY IT’S OCTOBER
Yes, yes I’m excited. I like skulls and scary times, and all the Nightmare Before Christmas merch (hinthint if anyone’s getting me a Christmas present), all the 3spoopy5me memes, even all the little spawn in their adorable costumes chucking eggs at houses and asking for candies,
I’m also excited because there are a couple of other things happening this month too. The first; I’m starting a new degree.
Yes I know the last one turned out SHIT, but this time I’m doing it from an interest in the subject, as well as bitterness at having let myself down last time. Besides, anger can keep you warm at night, and wounded pride can spur a man to wondrous things. I’m angry at myself for it. And the pride thing is obvious. I’m a proud creature. It’s not the usual reason to get a degree, I am aware, but the motivation of having failed before is a sweet little agony.
I’ll also be planning a new little story for NaNoWriMo, which I’ve had a little gush about before, how the deadline, community, resources etc etc inspired me for a while whilst I was writing. Sadly, last time didn’t go too well and I hit maybe 6,000 words, which isn’t a great deal. This time, will be slightly different, as I’m going to be having a little tête-à-tête with my good friend Ad, who belongs to this. I’ve got a little excerpt on there as well, very pleasing. There will be a forfeit to this as well, and I’ll likely keep posting little progress updates, and if I get anywhere with the story (which of course I will, having decided to crush him) I’ll put that up too.
Unless it’s really long and I like it, in which case I’ll put a chapter up and try to sell the rest. Anyway. Busy month.
That’s all for tonight, keep well.
