Great costumes, right? (If anything, I think this just proves I don’t know how to spend my free time.)

Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up this year/did you? What as? Are you participating in National Novel Writing Month?

Wordy Wednesday (“Cadence, Chapter 14”)

I’m dressed as an American College Student Muggle, here. It was hard work putting the costume together, as I’m sure you can tell.

We had a tie again this week between a memoir and Cadence, and I have homework and no new memoirs prepared, so guess what: You’re getting Cadence.

Links to previous chapters of Cadence:

Chapter One

Chapter Two

Chapter Three

Chapter Four

Chapter Five

Chapter Six

Chapter Seven

Chapter Eight

Chapter Nine

Chapter Ten

Chapter Eleven

Chapter Twelve

Chapter Thirteen

Recap of What’s Happened So Far:

[Sorry this is no longer available–I’m editing Cadence now with the hopes of maybe, possibly publishing it someday. Thanks for the interest, though!]

No, that is not a yawn. I was most definitely screaming over how awesome/scary/fantastic your costume is. Shut up.

Dressing as a Hunger Games character for Halloween? Send your pictures to [redacted] and I’ll feature them on the blog!

PS. So, I just transitioned the blog from still-clinging-to-summer mode to it’s-NaNoWriMo-time-which-means-it’s-winter. What do ya think?

Wordy Wednesday (“Cadence, Chapter 13”)

We had a tie this week between posting a memoir or a new chapter of Cadence, and since we just had a memoir last week (and I am currently drowning in Spanish homework and therefore lack the time to write anything), here’s Chapter 13 of Cadence!

Links to previous chapters of Cadence:

Chapter One

Chapter Two

Chapter Three

Chapter Four

Chapter Five

Chapter Six

Chapter Seven

Chapter Eight

Chapter Nine

Chapter Ten

Chapter Eleven

Chapter Twelve

See you next Wednesday, happy one week to Halloween, and happy SEVEN DAYS TO NANOWRIMO!!! (Reminder that if you’re dressing up like a Hunger Games  character for Halloween, I’d love to see your photos, and I’ll be sharing all of them on my blog this November. All you have to do is email your pic(s) to: [redacted].)

Have a good week!
