Day 49 + Catch Up

Hello, my lovelies!

Long time no chat!

I have incredible excuses for why I haven't posted. But we all know how the mental states and real life can drag you backwards away from blogging.

I had my computer's hard drive cable burn, had the part ordered, and I replaced it myself.

This human being is a life saver.

So from the time the part shipped out (like three freaking weeks or something) to when I got it in, immediately, I worked off my phone and basically by hand. I did a few things like try to draft a query, try to set up a writing binder, that sort of thing.

And if you've been following my tweets, you know what a disgrace I've been by ignoring all that work and jumping into the edits.

So now that I've learned a part of my lesson, filed my taxes, learned to love days off, I'm back.

For those of you still on the challenge, trying to get in the habit of writing

I hope everything's going well. It's nearly halfway there! I believe in you!

If you have any lines you wanna share, tag me! But here are your prompts:

Since I've been adding as many as possible to my Pinterest board, I thought I'd make one up.

Add to your story or react to this:

"Meat bubbles. I never thought I'd see the day."

As always, take care! Good luck!

Day 21

Hello, my lovelies!

Have you been keeping up?

I knew I wouldn't be posting as much, but I didn't expect to miss this much.

Six days isn't a lot but so much has happened since then—I started BEFORE I FALL, I got into edits, my midnight makeup game is picking up.

And that's just at home.

The bestie has moved onto other things, like purging her sins purging her house. Using this:

Which I'll also be using!

I'm starting to see why she and I are friends. I'm a quitter too, just not in the writing world.

How have y'all been? How's the writing? Is it getting interesting?

Are you bored yet? Have you fallen into a routine? How's your partner's story coming along? Is it funny? Is it stilted because of the challenge?

I hope, if anything, you got a laugh and a pattern going.

I know I've been silent as far as the Pinterest board, but I'll be getting back to that soon too! Instead, here are some prompts, for those of you who are stuck:

He whispers in my ear: "Light the match."

The fifteenth identity scared most people who weren't part of Xenorn. Just because of all the ways to die, losing your intestines to someone's identity is kinda terrifying.

"I volunteer my sister to take my place in the Hunger Games," she said.

Most people die when they've been decapitated, but Sir Buckley, the man who once represented the Isle, sat perfectly still with the EMT's hands cradling his head to his body. Internal decapitation was one of the many things he didn't count on tonight.

Well, my loves, get writing! Keep that up!

Day Fifteen

Well this is going to look super awkward on the archives.

Hey, guys!

Sorry there was no 14th. I'd love to blame it all on the buddy, so I will, but what happened was that I started edits and so I stayed up until 4:30 AM the night before my 14th post was due. Stayed up until 5AM last night and still up before I had to be!

Shoot me.

So these last few days I've looked like

and totally spaced on the post.

So other than that, some updates: Bestie gave up before I did. She's a quitter. I'd say I'm taking after her but oh no I'm not.

But kinda I am.

I have been a little occupied. HA! So I'll be putting prompts up no more. At least on here. But if I see a cool prompt, it'll be on my Already Used board on Pinterest.

Wow, that is an attractive name.

Okay, but it'll be done. Things are a bit of a mess but stick to your buddies, email those sentences.

The point is to write every day, to get into a habit. Your space to write that sentence is sacred. I will update more but less frequently. Spread your wings and fly.

And don't be distracted, like me, with House MD gifs.

So. Many.
