good things come in threes

Three things I love about today:

1. NaNoWriMo care packages. My friend Mariah, pen pal and soul twin, is the greatest! Since I've been running her latest movie score mix into the ground, she's hooked me up with a new one (wait, was this overnighted after yesterday's post?)! But that's not all! There's also Christmas music that I can start blasting to my heart's content on Friday and a book to read when this month is over. Hey November, please end so I can hang out with my awesome friend and plan mini breaks with our fictional boyfriends! Mariah, really, you're the sweetest and you deserve a certain delicious leprechaun on your arm at all times ;)
Legit dropped all the contents and screamed, "AH!" when I saw the Doctor!
2. World-building exercises in my writing class. These helped me see so many things I just never took a beat to think about that are actually terribly important. Oops! I focused on the world in my NaNoWriMo story, finished a bit early, and doodled my protagonist rather than figuring out what the answers to some of those questions should be. And since I'm terrible at keeping secrets, here she is! 
Oh, B, I'm sorry for all I'm about to put you through...
That's the only sneak peek you'll get till further notice!

3. Remember the dragon story I wrote? Well, I had it critiqued in class tonight. I was so nervous going into it because everything I've submitted for this class has been YA. But I received some really positive feedback, constructive criticism, and, best of all, a note from my teacher saying to submit it for publishing after editing... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM NEVER GOING TO SLEEP TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alright, I'm off to type madly and blast Michael Bublé's "Georgia On My Mind," because I AM GOING HOME TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I'm so happy your care package arrived before you leave! Hopefully it'll give you some new musical inspiration! I'm completely and utterly ready for fictional boyfriend vacations!
