Sick again. :( But! On the bright side, I am finally done with my final exams for this semester, so I get to be sick in peace, not worrying about studying or disturbing people. Isn't it terrible when you're that coughing, loud sniffly person during the silent tension of an exam? I just hate it.

I have a LOT of projects I want to tackle over the Christmas holiday, but I am starting to feel myself lose momentum. I really wanted to try actually writing and finishing a Dramione one-shot, but I am so scared to start. I mean, having no experience, it's bound to be terrible, isn't it? But I will never get better unless I start! But I don't want the [community profile] otterandferret gift exchange to be my first fic ever. (Since the two crack fics I wrote when I was thirteen, anyway.) I think the key is to get some practise in, and then find good betas.

In other news:

"For the rest of the year, creating a Dreamwidth account will not require an invite code: just visit the Create an Account page."

THIS EXCITES ME SO! Being such a Dreamwidth fangirl, I hope this makes it easy for people to switch over and see the light. :P

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: this is adorable, and needs to be attempted.

Found it on Pinterest. :3

I finally got my AO3 invite, and a week earlier than they forecasted! Now, if only my Pinterest invite would come in too, haha. But good things come to those who wait. :P

Tomorrow, I am off to a whirlwind day of panellists and speakers. It's an event that focuses on women in SEMT fields (Science, Engineering, Math, Technology), and issues pertaining to that. I've always been interested in feminist issues, but I've never really educated myself on the subject (aside from the occasional article online - maybe that counts). So, I'm totally psyched for this. I've even got a shiny new spiral notebook for furious note-taking.

PLUS ITS FRIDAAAAAY. PARTAY TIEM. By which I mean, a good night's rest, probably. xD

I'm running around like a headless chicken because there's only one more day (and a few more hours) until NaNoWriMo 2011! AHHHHHHHHH

For anyone who doesn't know what I'm screaming about, here's the info from the official site. Basically, a bunch of crazy people attempt to write a 50k-word novel in the thirty days of November.

I really shouldn't be doing it, but that's never stopped anyone from trying, has it? I know I can't do 50k with all this schoolwork, soooo my word goal is 25k. (Novella!) But I'm caught up in deciding what I should write about. Should I use this as an opportunity to finally write the Dramione story I've been thinking about? Or should I continue with my plans to write a new, original story? Both options are so appealing. It might just come down to a coin flip.

In the meantime, I've been scouting out good writing locations, and drawing up imaginary schedules. November is going to be a crazy month.
