Despite the absolute struggle that was today, I wrote more than my desired word count for NaNoWriMo. I’m still behind, but today helped. Catching up will be harder than I anticipated, but I’m determined.
Important side note - please pray for health and patience.
I really just want to travel and eat food.
I think I need something else to do.
I keep having these weird mood swings. I just get really angry and really upset about not working. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it happens. I’ve been trying to pray about it and trying to figure out exactly what I’m supposed to be doing now. Writing helps sometimes, but I think I need something more.
I’m thinking about participating in a poetry slam; especially since teaching how to perform a spoken word piece for teacher training went pretty well. I’ve got some poems I could spit. I need to memorize them though…
I’ve convinced myself that I could be an actor
If it weren’t for the whole speaking in front of people thing. Like actors, writers get into the mindset and world of their characters. We feel what they feel, experience what they experience. We both do research! The only difference is one is writing it all down and one is performing the action.
If I had more nerves, I would totally do it. I think it would be fun. Maybe I can figure out how to do voiceovers. That seems less intimidating.
I’m thinking about joining Pottermore. I remembered I wanted to join when I first heard about it, but it was all backed up then.
I also need more Harry Potter love in my life.
Yay or nay?

Day 12 - 30 Day Writing Prompt Challenge
Day 12 - What’s your favorite day of the week?
This one is kind of hard to answer since a lot of days are blurring together because I don’t have anything significant to do. But I’ll go with Thursdays. Not just because today is Thursday, but because there are a lot of good things about Thursday for me. It used to be dance practice and gospel choir rehearsal day. There are a lot of good TV shows that come on Thursdays (OMGosh the Graceland season finale is tonight!). It’s also the day before Friday.
Day 7 - 30 Day Writing Prompt Challenge
Day 7 - What sets you apart from the crowd?
This is an interesting topic of discussion since today is my birthday! (And there will probably be more posts about my birthday involving pictures. Hopefully not some many it’s annoying). But what sets me apart from the crowd? First of all my Christianity.
I love God and I love people. I believe Jesus died for my sins so I’m set free. I don’t have to hold onto my past. I can just focus on moving forward. When I say I love people, I love ALL people. I don’t hold anything against gay people. I pray that hateful people will remember that gay people are people first and should be treated as such. You can be civil with someone even if you don’t agree with their lifestyle (I feel like that’s the wrong word to use) or sexual orientation.
Another thing that sets me apart is my height. I’m short. I’m 4’ 10 and 1/2”. Most of the time I just say 4’ 11”.
I don’t know if these other things I’m going to talk about set me apart because I feel like other people do this too, but I want to talk about them.
I think what I’m trying to do with my writing is sort of different. I want to incorporate God in my writing to reach people who won’t go to the Christian section of the bookstore. Not to knock Christian writers at all - I’ll love and support y’all - but I think it’s just different for me. I do have to be careful and make sure I’m not writing a God that’s pleasing to everyone.
So since I’m short and small in body type/size, I haven’t really physically grown out of clothes since middle school. So as I’ve grown up and my style has changed, I’ve had to donate/throw away clothes because I don’t wear them anymore. (I also needed to make room for the new clothes.) Speaking of clothes, I just wear what I like. I’m not so much into brands. I like certain stores though. I’m expanding my horizon into shoes, but a lot of stores don’t have my size - 5 and 1/2.
This turned out longer than I thought - sorry. But yeah. That’s what sets me apart - my Christianity, my writing, and my clothes/style.
