OKAY SO I'M SUPER LATE.

big deal.

I mean, it's not like NaNo starts in 4 DAYS or anything.

OH MY GOSH I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN WITH MY NOVEL.

Breathe, Ilse. Breathe.

Okay. So here goes.



Yeah. I'm too lazy to say anything about what this is. So just go to some other blog or use one of the addresses in the pic if you don't know.


What inspired the idea for your novel, and how long have you had the idea?

Okay, so I recently started using an idea journal to record thoughts, quotes, and inspiration. I highly recommend this! I have kept so many ideas/quotes this way. I've had this idea for a month or two now. It reminds me of another brainchild I had, which is very unwritten but has the title of "One Mad Crazy Summer". Aaand I just realized that the six paragraphs or whatever I began are set in the school year. Points to me for crazy.

Story Wars and Holidays and Also Don't Kill Me Because I Keep Procrastinating And It's Been Like 2 Months And This Is A Really Long Title

I post! Finally!

Story Wars is an app you can add to your google (much like blogger) that allows you to collaborate on stories in interesting ways.

It may not seem like much (my best friend and I wrote the beginning a year or two back and it's very fairy tale), but it has really cool potential, in my opinion. Please check it out! Thank you! Yay!

So. How long has it been since I gave you guys a real post? Too long. I apologize.
