Thoughts of a wanna-be author and student.

(SC)Rambling to get started

I figured that I'd celebrate my accomplishment of writing 2000-something words with my first blog post. My partner in writing  and I are doing our own mini writing month--aiming for 1000 words a day. I've been behind and now I have finally caught up!

Ah, victory is sweet.

I'm going to completely blame it on the fact that I was writing from a new story--one that Jessica has been itching for me to start. It's pretty exciting and I know it's quickly going to take over my life. I will be looking forward to all the crazy dreams my characters will soon give me. (As they always do.)

I can already tell I'm going to have some... internal issues with my MC. I'll keep you all updated on him. He's rather interesting. Trust me, I mean it.

I almost thought I was going to have another day of epic failure--like yesterday where I believe I wrote a total of six words? And I really would have. I had a minor crisis of my puppy's nails getting clipped too short and he started bleeding. It was scary! Luckily for me, and him, it stopped and now he is sleeping on his back... snoring lightly... feet curled up and twitching to the scenes in his dreams...

I'll post a picture of him soon enough. He'll melt your heart.

He's also quite the character. Not sure how he managed to get such a distinct personality, but it is 100% there.

That's it for now. I'm not so hot at blogs yet, so just be patient. Eventually someone will find something worthwhile here--maybe.

Time to join my puppy (or my miscreant characters) in dream land. Until next time!


  1. I like how you call me Jessica... it's weird.

    Congrats again! Stop having issues with him.

  2. Should I not call you Jessica? Figured it'd be better to use the name you're using, you know?

  3. My name IS Jessica... but you don't call me that in real life haha

  4. I know your name is Jessica. If you went by Jessica all the time, I'd call you that.


I like reading what you've got to say, so go ahead and make my day! :)
