Kevin is dead.

I felt it somehow. I had planned even, what to write ahead of time. I knew it.

Kevin, strength, is dead.

Lookie what sylvrilyn gave me!

And yes, Crystal, I made it, with my head start in the afternoon. Both the boys got over 3,000. Lots of fun. Shoulda been there. *winks* *waves ghost hand*

Full Moon Madness


Eyah! Howl, baby, howl. Tonight is the full moon an you don't know. And I (silly, silly me) am attempting to write 5,000 words. 'Ipes.

I have 893 (pick it up, Ley, up!), so that only leaves 4,107 to go. Yeah....

Full moon, baby. Welcome to the madness.

See ya, yeah?

(Feeling wolfish tonight?....)

(Yes, another one.)

Call me insane, call me whatever you flippin' want. Personally, I call myself visionally challenged. I am just too darn lazy to get off my keester (or on it) and write. This is important to me. Really. I need to write. I just don't. And that's slightly problematic.

So I've gone and done it again. I've signed up for National Novel Writing Year.

My goal for the year is 100,000 words. That's a lot of crap. Although hopefully it won't be crap, because I'm giving myself some time to do it. If I don't procrastinate, that is. And if I do complete NaNoWriMo this year, that leaves only 50,000 for the other 11 months. Even though I have missed a month and a half, I should be able to make it past my goal. If, to quote another writer, I get in some butt-to-chair, fingers-to-keyboard time.

So, hopefully (I use that word a lot), I will start *coughs* posting my sentence a day again. Meaning, I'll be writing at least one sentence a day again.

See ya.

I know a kid, Kevin. He's two years younger than I and he's dying of cancer. I can't really remember how long this has been going on (I'm a monster with dates), but first he got leukemia, then lymphoma (or was it the other way?...). He was doing well after awhile. He got a bone marrow transplant and things seemed to be going well.

Then he crashed. I don't really know what happened, but they don't think he's gonna make it. There's nothing more the doctor's can do.

I found out this morning that the decision to stop trying new treatments, it wasn't made by his parents. He made that decision. That is strength.

And it made me wonder. Would I do that? Would I be able to do that? I don't know. I pray I don't have to find it. But it makes me wonder just the same.

And it made me determined to keep on top of something I discovered last night. Something to build strength. It's called The Éowyn Challenge.

Now do you realize how far those sturdy little hobbits walked during the course of The Lord of the Rings? Over 6,000 miles. That's really far. Me, I'm just aiming for Rivendell right now. Distance from Bag End to Rivendell: 458 miles.

1 down, 457 to go. See ya there.

*Stares Blankly At Screen*

Feeling weirded a tad bit right now. Pardon me.

I was feeling restless reading The Three Musketeers, after all I just won a book. So I decided to get on and go OCD checking e-mail. (Hey, I'm leveling up in DF too. Is that considered constructive?) So, I open up Yahoo! and guess what's waiting in my inbox?

No, I didn't win a million dollars. I never believe those anyway. I won... another book.

Yes, a book. That's three this year. Two today! It's like my birthday, but better 'cause it's totally unexpected. Like hearing a song you love on the radio is so much more exciting than popping in the cd. Unexpected and exhilarating. Not to mention just plain freaking weird.

I'm feeling the need to mark this day on my calender for all posterity or something equally irrational. I feel special.



'08 Is Looking Fine....

I won a book today.

Yes, me. I won. A book. My second this year.

That should be impossible. And I did it all by my lonesome. Buddy.

I never win. Ever. It's only February 5th. Whoa.

As you can see, I am still in shock.

But, seriously, COME ON!

*starts humming to self* I won, I won, da da da da dum.....
