Another Sunday

Another day for catching up.  

I just wrote a handful of poems for PAD, and am going to try to salvage my ScriptFrenzy soon.

I may do homework later.

In other news, I finally got myself a new phone.  It's nice to have a battery that lasts more than a day.

Are any of you familiar with Plinky?  It's kind of a writer's-block-breaker, with prompts and such.  Another good writer's block resource is Dr. Wicked's Write or Die application.  It saved my novel last November (I am kind of a masochist--NaNoWriMo is awesome!)

I have had a slightly crappy day.

This made me feel so much better, terrible as it is.

Aggressive Campaigns and Failing Dialogue

I did a bit of catching up on my ScriptFrenzy yesterday, though I'm still woefully behind.  It's amazing how, in a regular story, I can have characters argue for pages and pages with nothing but dialogue....but it's killing me to have nothing but sounds here.

I guess we'll see how it pans out.

In other news, elections for the student government are being held today, and one particular set of candidates has been spending an excessive amount of effort on recruiting voters.  Seriously: stuffing mailboxes, posters everywhere....even door hangers.  You know, like the ones you get in hotels, that say "Do not disturb"?  


I didn't vote for them.

How do you feel about aggressive campaigning?

Catch Up

Today, I'm catching up on the PAD I skipped earlier in the week.  In my defense, I was thinking about them...just not writing them.

After, I'll try to catch up on my ScriptFrenzy.  

And perhaps after that, I'll study for my French test tomorrow.

In other news, I got some lovely yarn very cheaply at a garage sale the other day--four large skeins of usually expensive homespun for $4 :)  That'll fuel my blanket for awhile!

Began ScriptFrenzy late last night; managed less than a page that I don't really like.

Am supposed to be writing a paper about Sophocles' Antigone and a speech about the French Revolution.

Instead, I am starting April's Poem-a-Day challenge.

Wish me luck with my self-imposed, constant state-of-crisis!

Obligatory Introduction Post of DOOM

So, here we are.

If we were meeting in real life, I'm certain we'd be looking at each other awkwardly, trying to figure out how to say something clever that could not possibly backfire and make us look stupid.  I'd probably be failing.

It's good to meet you.  I'm December.  I'm an English major, and am in love with life!  I adore words, crafts, music, and baking.

Don't be shy...I won't bite unless you ask me to ;)

And now...a mundane adventure into my life!

Earlier today, after sleeping through my 2 o'clock class and hurrying over to my 4 o'clock (only to discover that it was cancelled), I was enjoying the pre-spring weather and walking around town.  It was getting a little late, and we were about ready to head back to campus for dinner, when we came across a produce and health food store that sells lentils and whole-wheat pastry flour!  I was watching the Food Network with a friend awhile ago, and have been looking for these ingredients ever since, to make lentil cookies.  I was really excited...but had no money on me.  I know what I'm doing this weekend!

Oh, wait....

I'm going to give ScriptFrenzy a go.  I only JUST came up with a plot.  Wish me luck!
