Today, just now, in fact, I googled myself, and for the first time ever, three sites came up that were actually about ME! Including this, by the way, which inspired my less-than-timely post. So, dear blogoverse, if you're ever in the neighborhood, check me out. Bahaha.
These past few days, weeks, months have been busy. I fail dreadfully at NaNoWriMo with a miserable 18k or so words. I've been obsessed with Margaret Atwood of late, and have read the Blind Assassin, Oryx and Crake, and am working on Lady Oracle. Thursday morning, I sent a letter to Margaret Atwood--the typical, you're amazing, I am not worthy! kind of thing--just because I'd like to know.
I've also recently discovered the amazing wonderful-ness of MLIA, or My Life Is Average, which has inspired me to dress up as Hermione Granger and wander around town, just for the sake of wandering. Deviant Art has been a major source of inspiration, as well, especially Auriethepixie, whose photography amazes the hell out of me.
Any fellow young writers in British Columbia, should check this out! Deadline for the contest is December 31st (either 5 poems, or a max. 5 page short story), and I'm currently scrambling to come up with something half-way-decent. Hope I get in--it looks absolutely phenomenal! Cross your fingers for me,
