Novels…

NaNoWriMo is not happening this year. Just not. But I don’t want to give up a writing expedition in November. So I’m planning on doing serious rewrites on one of my novels written previously. But I can’t pick which, so that’s where you all come in. 

Here are the choices:

Song of the Lark– In a society where class gaps have grown significantly three teenagers and one little boy escape from the house where they are enslaved. The mastermind, Caileigh, leaves behind her lover and his jealous fiancée Elaine. In a race to stay hidden they have to put aside differences and band together. Unfortunately Elaine intercepts a missive Caieigh sends to her lover, Aiden, leaving all four in danger.

Broadway Lullaby– Casey Marlow got sent to live with her mom and stepfamily after her first film “Moonlight” was filmed. Her parents want her to finish high school normally, but what is normal in her family? It’s definitely not when her eleven-year-old brother Dylan, who has Autism, disappears. She, her evil stepbrother and their friends try to circumvent the police to find him–after all Casey knows Dylan better than anyone, but is that enough? 

untitled– Tessa’s kingdom has a tradition. One eligible maiden is sent to the neighboring kingdom every year under the guise of keeping up communication, but really in the hopes of a marriage. WHen her sister runs away upon being chosen, Tessa must go. But what kingdom will accept a could-be-queen whose legs don’t even work properly? 

The Ella Trilogy– Ella’s parents died. In fact, most of the adults in her world died of a Pandemic (secretly designed by the government) that only affects adults. In children it causes odd side effects, side effects such as time travel. It was Ella’s father who discovered that this talent could be used to find the cure. Now, years later, his daughter is part of the resistance. Gallivanting across time, however, does not spare her the emotional hardship of being a teenager.

A meme, some pictures and a request

So, with the yarn I have right now, I only need five more balls of Kureyon to finish. That scares me and excites me all at the same time. I want to order the next five online as soon as I finish the ones I have, and i will be able to do so if my mother permits or if the credit card I applied for arrives soon. But with Europe in the works we have zero dollars.

I get that, I promise, but it’s SO annoying! I want stuff! Like, I put a few cookbooks on my amazon wishlist today for next year, but can’t get them now. Can’t get yarn. Can’t get theWaterproof Housing for iPod I want. Can barely get my book for the swap (but tis a necessity!). It’s annoying. I’m used to us being fairly able to afford things minimally, every once in a while something, you know? This is vaguely ridiculous, but will be nice in Europe I suppose.

On another note, I’m nearly done with the rewrites on my novel, and I really need someone dependable who’s a fairly quick reader to look at it. Would anyone be interested? Someone who’d be interested in working with me on this and maybe future things? It’s a YA novel…. Comment me if you’re interested!

Oh! I got my hair cut yesterday:

It’s my first time having any kind of bangs, ever, and I reallyreally like it!

Yesterday I finished a LR square, in 215. i have 184 on the needles, own 183 and bought one yesterday…. I don’t know the colorway, it’s dark brown with some reds in it. Pretty. My square is prettiful too, but my camera is dead and I’m to lazy to go get batteries :D

Looking at other people’s Lizard Ridges, I feel like I could just keep going forever, but I’m also excited about the prospect of having it DONE! I’m probably going to order from Yarnmarket, because they have good colorways for $8.35. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be: 194, (because of this square), 40, 214, 164 and one other but I’m not on the computer that has my basket. I think it was 207. I really like the new Kureyon colorways. At the same time, I see all the gorgeous ones they have and go: “I could make another row…. or another blanket to donate to Afghans for Afghans as done here

But then again, I’m ready to move on, and whilst I plan on donating to charity with my knitting through the club I want to form, it’ll probably be baby hats. It’s time to move on, and stop judging yarn stores by their Noro Kureyon stock….

Had Starbucks with my friend Seppy today. Was très excited that a lightly blended Javachip w/o whip is only three points on Weightwatchers I realized that my friends and I are starting to branch out, and won’t be home all summer any more. I definitely don’t want to be next year, although it is nice.

Anyway, a meme from Gabrielle and a reminder to sign-up for the Bookswap!

4 jobs I have had in my life:

1. Babysitting my mom’s co-worker’s kids. It was my first real babysitting job. Carl was eleven and severely ADHD, never shut up but we talked about Harry Potter. His sister was a strange duck, eight, too smart for her breaches (oh, I’m not southern. noooo) but over all a nice kid.
