In the mood

The writing mood has got a hold of me again :)

After watching loads of Fantasy and Sci-Fi DVDs for uncounted numbers of times, I really feel like writing again. I love writing and I never abandoned it in the last few months, only I have not worked on my "big" projects, only on small ones.
And I still love my stories too. I want to finish them. Especially Before and After and Ella.

What inspired this blog entry and the realisation that I need to write again, was that I stood in my kitchen and suddenly had a very vivid scene of Ella questioning people in my head. And with a bit of distance I now know what I want to do differently.

And I think what plays part in this too, is that I haven't read a book for quite some time. I tend to get influenced by a story/author and I feel that I have found back to myself (I thank my little projects and the people involved with them in a way)

New cats

I'm a cat mama again :) While I don't paticularly like that expression (I'm not their mama), they are babies still, both 3 months old.

They are from a litter of cats that all look almost the same and my sister (who took the other two sisters) and me had a bit of a hard time to sort out who was who when I finally took mine home yesterday. :)
We know how to tell them apart, but if you don't see all four at the same time... :)

Both give me a "hard time" because I don't have enough hands and arms to cuddle both at the same time as much as they want to. :D

NaNoWriMo, Day 5

I would have needed to write 5000 words today (oh, yesterday, it's past midnight *gah*) to make up for the non-writing of the last two days.

Only, I mentioned I wouldn't have much time today either and right now I'm way too tired and uninspired to go on. At least I got 1725 words today, that leaves me with 4942 words tomorrow (instead of 6667).
That's the only positive thing right now (writing related)...

NaNoWriMo, Day 3

No words today. I thought I could get them in between two appointments but I didn't. But I have been thinking about what I could write, so that counts for something, doesn't it? :)

At least I have a bit of a scene in my head, so I know what will happen next.

Thing is, I don't think I'll write tomorrow either, I'm out and about all day. But - seeing as my godfather has a meeting in the evening - I might skip going to the cinema alone and write then. We'll see.
And depending on how awake I am tomorrow morning, I might write on the train :)

If not, 5000 words on Thursday when I don't have time either. Great :D
