Books Can Be Funny! It's True! I promise!

Better Book Titles are hilarious. Here are some.

Animal Farm
Better Book Titles
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
To Kill a Mockingbird
Pride and Prejudice
Ender's Game
Wuthering Heights
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I FREAKING LOVE THESE!! I was laughing so hard. Gotta say, Wuthering Heights is my favorite. Basically my thoughts as I read that book. I can't remember what I ate for breakfast and this chick can remember entire conversations she had at the age of twelve. Well, I appologize for my (EXTREME)  lateness. Obviously, you can tell I've been up to a lot... what with looking up stuff like this. There are more Better Book Titles...HERE.

Counting Down To NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo is going to be the death of me.

     I don't know about everyone else who is planning on participating in NaNoWriMo 2012, but with just a month left until it kicks off, I am in one hundred percent panic mode. I can barely find the time simply to do my homework right now. How do I think I'm going to deal with all my school responsibilities as well as write an entire friggin' novel IN ONE MONTH. That doesn't even include all the other craziness in my life. Madness, I tell you. Madness. I guess the worst part for me is that I'm a perfectionist, and NaNoWriMo is all about not worrying about writing something absolutely amazing and instead simply writing. The whole idea of turning your inner editor "off" is going to be a challenge for me considering that my inner editor seems to be permanently working overtime. I told myself I was going to prepare myself in advance. Maybe outline a plot, create an entire cast of characters, develop complex themes, etc, etc. But you know, master procrastinators like me can't be bothered with "working ahead". So here I am with nothing but two underdeveloped characters and a vague idea for a other words, I'm screwed. But you know what? I DON'T CARE. I'm going to do NaNoWriMo, even if what I write ends up being the single worst thing ever to be written in the history of writing and deserves to burned to a pile of ashes. I'll just have to edit like a crazy person right after and refuse to reveal it until I finish. So I hope you're ready Sara, because we may or may not lose our sanity in November (like it already isn't hanging by a thread).
