I want to get the updates over with first because I’m afraid that if I don’t, I’ll forget. First of all (I’ve been meaning to say this for about… oh, two months? So listen up!) feed my fish. Please. Do you see the little widget over on the right side that says “Feed the Fish!”? Yes? Good. Now feed them. You feed my wonderful fish by clicking in their tank. You can also make them follow your mouse icon. Just put your mouse arrow thing in the tank and they’ll all swarm around it wanting food. It’s very entertaining. I hope you got all of that. Now, feed some fish!
Also, I changed my theme. I really hope you noticed that. I really do. It was a big change. I actually put in a background this time! It’s all stars and sparkles and night sky and such. Do you like my header image? I really like it! I think it’s a nice because it’s got color, so it balances out the black and white of my theme and background. What are your thoughts? If you hate it, just let me know. I can change it in a jiffy.
I think that’s all I have to say for the updates section of my post. Now, NaNoWriMo is another story. I. Am. Freaking. Out. I might not show it, but I am. I’m trying to stock up of chocolate, write two outlines (because I have yet to decide on a novel idea), practice my violin, read writing books, clean bathrooms (to get money to buy writing books), do homework, and act cool. So far I am succeeding. I just need a bit of your input.
Remember when I told you about the two ideas I had (one was science fiction, and the other was realistic fiction)? Yeah, I scrapped those two ideas. They weren’t junk, but they weren’t NaNoWriMo worthy. I’ve come up with two new ones. I’ll start off with the idea that I’m slightly more inclined to write. This is a mixture of Historical Fiction and Fantasy. Actually, let’s just stick with fantasy. I’m in desperate need for names for this idea, so you’ll see a lot of unnamed character did this, or unnamed land is at war with unnamed land.
René, an aristocratic young woman, writes pamphlets to encourage people about the war between unnamed land and unnamed land under the pen name of [insert pen name here]. The two lands are at war because the rulers hold different beliefs. The ruler of unnamed land #1 believes that everyone’s essence should stay pure and those with unpure essence should be hanged, while the ruler of unnamed land #2 believes that the mixing of essences is an art that should not be restricted.
René is of unpure essence (she is mostly death essence with a tinge of life from her mother’s grandmother), and she writes her war pamphlets encouraging young men to fight for their rights. When she started writing, she never guessed how famous her pseudonym would become. Now, she is the most famous war pamphlet writer in all of unnamed land. When René witnesses the murder of the printer that prints her war pamphlets, she is taken away from her privileged life and into the underground community of people who want the war to end. René has no way of getting her writing printed, and if her captors realize how important to the war this pretty young woman is, she would be put to death.
So? Did you like it? It’s a bit confusing, but that cannot be helped. If you have questions, feel free to ask me in the comments. I will respond (hopefully). I have something important to say to Kirsten about my next idea. Kirsten, I did not get this idea from your dreamers idea. Promise.
Sydney has been able to lucid dream since she was a child with no problems. During one of her dreams she visits her friend Hannah. The next day, Hannah tells Sydney about her dream and Syd’s role in it. Syd soon discovers that during her dreams she can visit other people’s dreams. Random people start to show up in Sydney’s dreams. One of said people tries to kill her in her dream. No big deal, right? Tha’s what Sydney thinks until she wakes up in the morning with a cut on her hand right where she had been cut in her dream.
All of a sudden, Sydney is no longer sure of the strange people in her dreams. To find out more about them, she attends one of their meetings (in her dream). Syd finds out that they have plans to invade the earth– through people’s dreams. The only things they fear are lucid dreamers. Can Sydney train her friends to lucid dream? Will her friends believe her, and if they do can they take down the strange race of dream people? What will happen when Sydney starts to develop feelings for one of them?
How about that idea? I like that one a lot. Sometimes I like it more than the other one. I like it because I know how it will end, and YOU don’t. Haha! Tell me which idea you like better in the comments.
X’s and O’s,
