Bum. Bum. Bum. Another One Bites the Dust.

Guess who finished the first draft of her eighth book? THIS CHICK! Now all I have to do is perfect it…That won’t be too hard…

1) Get 5+ short stories into magazines.
2) Finish writing my book. (This needs to be done!)
3) Finish my fanfiction. (I’ve been writing this since the summer. It needs to be done!)
4) Write a screenplay
5) Get an INTERNSHIP!
6) Get a job (bleh)

Wait. Nope. That’s gunna be hard, but I like hard, so I’ll do it anyway.

Check in later,

Thoughts on my Fanfiction: The Wyrmling

As I sit on Facebook twiddling my fingers, I wonder what has happened to me and to my time. It’s not that I’ve lost ambition in the past few weeks, but it’s that…I have…less…to do. Granted the semester just started and I barely have any homework, but there’s something different about this semester. And then it just hit me: I finished my fanfiction.

I finished my Naruto fanfiction entitled The Wyrmling over break. I wanted it to be finished before I started this semester because it was time-consuming. I didn’t realize just how time-consuming it was until now. It’s not like I’m doing nothing, you know? I have six courses I’m taking this semester and my GPA is 3.72….I got into the Honors College and I want to stay there, so I’m busting my bum working my brain. But when I sit down at the end of the day, I find that there’s no pull. It’s like I need to come up with something to post online. I feel terribly about this because I’ve been blogging for years. Why is it that all of a sudden I can’t sit down on the computer?

Any thoughts?

And another resolution has been achieved!

1) Get 5+ short stories into magazines.
2) Finish writing my book. (This needs to be done!)
3) Finish my fanfiction. (I’ve been writing this since the summer. It needs to be done!)
4) Write a screenplay
5) Get an INTERNSHIP!
6) Get a job (bleh)

It’s a really great feeling accomplishing what you set out to do. I got a job as a dance instructor (jazz and hip-hop) at my college. I’m glad about that. I’m going to see if I can be a dance instructor at other local colleges or libraries. If you have any ideas, send them my way.

I have four more accomplishments to achieve before I complete my list of 2012 resolutions…then I’ll need to make up more!

Best,

Yes!

I just finished one of the items on my list of resolutions!

1) Get 5+ short stories into magazines.
2) Finish writing my book. (This needs to be done!)
3) Finish my fanfiction. (I’ve been writing this since the summer. It needs to be done!)
4) Write a screenplay
5) Get an INTERNSHIP!
6) Get a job (bleh)

Yes, I finished writing my fanfiction, TODAY! It was hard. I have 46 chapters out in that story (it’s called Wyrmling and it’s a Naruto fanfic). The last five chapters I posted today. It was nothing short of intense.

This got me thinking about New Year Resolutions. Just about everybody I know say that they’re going to do something, start and two days later stop. I guess that those resolutions aren’t really resolutions, then. They’re more like…daydreams. It’s something that someone would like to do, but has no real plan of implementing or sustaining it. When it’s a resolution, that means that someone has a plan to do something and not stop until the task is completed.

Maybe I’m wrong….but then again, maybe I’m not…
