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'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.
