So, Goodnight Moon, And Goodnight You

Currently Listening To: Go RadioGoodnight Moon


So, first thing; I wrote and posted this late just because today I heard the song I’m currently listening to and I’m in love with it and I wanted to use a lyric from it that was accurate to the post. This is what I came up with.
Next thing; I actually got somewhere in my writing. Not far, because I’m such a procrastinator, but I was in a slump that I couldn’t get out of, but I finally did, which leads me to…

Third thing; I couldn’t write description for a while. Not that I wouldn’t, I literally could not do it. I’ve always been better at writing dialogue, but suddenly I had pages and pages filled with conversations between my characters with the random two lines of random description because I felt I had to add it in. So today, I spent my lunch hour today outside of my school and describing what I saw, heard, and felt. I got one page (double-sided) filled, and the descriptions got progressively longer as I went along, so I’m really happy.
Fourth thing; I’ve started on summaries for my books. They probably won’t be up for a while – I’ve got like… eleven to do, and I’ve only done three – but I’m not (totally) slacking!

Fifth thing; I don’t know what to post for the writing excerpt. I’ll be consulting my writing buddies (AKA bugging them into oblivion) as to what I should post, but it’ll be up soon enough… or, you know, “eventually” would be the more accurate term.
Last thing; I found out today that a girl who goes to my school has a book published. I’m even more determined now.

So, these were my closing thoughts for the week. Goodnight to all of you!

  1. WHAT. WHICH GIRL? LET'S BE FRIENDS WITH HER. (I am so creepy it's not even funny... I'm prepared to follow this kid home)

    But wooo! I can't wait to read the summaries/excerpts as I'm sure they'll be amazing :) Feel free to send me, y'know, everything ever.

    I totally need to go listen to this song now. You have awesome taste in music after all.

    And we already talked about the description and how great I think it is :) GO MAY.

    Hope you have a fantastic weekend! <3

    1. I KNOW RIGHT?!

      I really wanted to find her and be like "OMG YOU'RE SO COOL I IDOLIZE YOU WILL YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE." I've decided I'm going to read her book first... then I'll find her and say these things to her. :D

      Of course, everything I write goes through you first :D And don't worry, you shall be getting a couple soon.

      Because of this song, I've made a list of things I want to tack on my bedroom walls. And I'm not the only one with a good taste in music, m'dear. :)

      Hope you have an amazing one as well (L)

      - May :)
