And I am Back!

I can’t believe it, but on my first day back at writing after a summer long break I have reached a very good word count! I am incredibly happy with what I have written today and can’t wait to go back to it tomorrow to look at how I did and how I can change it!

As you may know I was writing a short story that’s been on my mind for some time now. Though I didn’t realise just how short my story was going to be, I’m thrilled that I’ve finally taken to writing it down!

Today my goal was 2,000 words as it always has been, and I managed to reach

ss 1 day 1

 

I know I’m a bit off the 2,000 mark, but I honestly don’t mind at all! I am just so happy to have written when I was so sure I wouldn’t be ab;e to write anything at all when I got down to it.

As usual there was an awful lot of procrastination and desperate attempts to throw myself down the stairs to get out of starting back into it, but now that I have I am thrilled!

I would post my short story here, but as I’m not sure about how strict the college is on what you do and don’t use for your portfolio and what counts as being published I’m not going to take that chance. Though I will try to put some other short stories and things up as I decide that they are not good enough for my portfolio, and you guys can all slate the bajaysus out of them and help me to become a better writer!

However, now I stand a new challenge; as my short story seems to be taking considerably less time than I had originally thought, I need to decide on what novel I want to work on next.

I have a few ideas in mind, one werewolf, one vampire, one mythical and one dystopian. Each of these is as little planned out as the other, I would seriously appreciate any help, PLEASE comment on what you think I should write, I would really love to hear what you all think! Thank you!!

Ramblings of a Pirate

So I met the family, managing not to kill anyone, spill anything or walk into anyone. That right there is success people. I just ate a pizza and burnt my mouth to a crisp, but it’s all ok people!

You know why? I have popcorn. Not just any popcorn, but CHEESY popcorn. And Puzzle Pirates. Yes, I am still going on about this. I have been addicted to this little game ever since I wrote this little post here. I know this is quite a random post, but hey, that’s what happens when I don’t have much to tell you about.

You should all start playing Puzzle Pirates then we WordPressians shall pillage and win all the battles we face, gaining treasure and even owning penguins! This is my pirate:

Capture

 

I don’t look like this in real life, and I don’t have a penguin either. But just think of the fun you could have as a pirate like this!

I swear I’ll write something interesting soon!

 

Rain and Tea

I am an absolute sap. Some of you may know this already. Today though, I took this to the extreme and left the comfort, warmth and dryness of my home to travel over an hour away on a damp Dublin bus in the bucketing rain to see Mr. Cooke, because I knew I wouldn’t see him till Monday otherwise.

No, I’m not a sap, I’m just sad.

Anyway, we don’t need to discuss my obsessive personality and stalker-like attitude just yet.

When I got out there Mr. Cooke had a cup of tea and cheese toasties ready for me, and a hoodie. As any girl will know, your boyfriend’s hoodie is one of the single most amazing things on this planet, so I was quite happy to say the least.

We decided to watch a movie which is on our ‘Movies We Have To Watch Together’ list, Friends With Benefits. Now, for those of you who do not know, the gorgeous Milah Kunis is in this movie, she was there for my boyfriend. And Justin Timberlake was in it for me.

Yes, I do like Justin Timberlake, and it ain’t for the muscles- I’m one of those ‘eww, muscles… Gross’ kind of girls- it’s for his nerdiness, which as I have said before, nerdiness attracts me. But it has to be the right amount of nerdiness. Picky as hell, aren’t I?

Picky as hell is a really bad saying, I’m sure hell isn’t that picky about who comes in.

Anyway, as you can guess, sitting next to my boyfriend while Milah Kunis got naked and had an orgasm made me feel like shit. I ain’t no movie star!

HOWEVER thankfully, my boyfriend is realistic, and he knows that no one can really be like that in real life, and he makes me feel like I can actually be good looking.

I know this sounds ranty, and it probably is because I am very sleepy, but I know that this relationship is something serious, because whether I have my usual emo-eyeliner-and-mascara make-up on, or whether I have been done up by a professional, or I have just woken and most of my make up is on my cheeks, he doesn’t care. He still looks at me in the same way as he did the first day we met.

I’m probably getting all nostalgic because we are nearly a year together now and I have never been with someone as amazing as him, someone who accepts me entirely, and who I accept completely.

As he says (you can find his post on this-which is way better than my explanation- here), you know you’re truly in love when the only thing in your life which truly frustrates you is the one you’re in a relationship with.

(you can creep on my boyfriend here!)
