Hi everyone! Just a short entry this time, since life has been a little crazy. I’m currently a little sleep-deprived after going to see Steven Spielberg give a speech at the 149th Dedication Ceremony of the Gettysburg Address. (My friends and I were within 5 feet of him at one point! *happy nerd dance*). So that was very cool. (And I have the best onii-san EVER! He gave me a Nintendo DS, so now I can play Okamiden! ^_^ Hooray!) So, between that, seeing friends, various life events, and a bad encounter with Pizza Hut food, things have been a little hectic.
The biggest eater of my time has been National Novel Writing Month. Yep, this is my third year and my second serious attempt at reaching 50,000 words in 30 days. I was doing well for a while, but hit some snags this week so I’m about 4,000 words behind schedule. Hopefully I’ll make that up this week. As a result, most of my attention has been on filling my daily word count rather than thinking of topics for The Cat’s Cradle.
However, I do have some good writing news! I am now a weekly contributor to the nerd blogsite GEEK LA FEMME! While my blog is dedicated to writing, Geek La Femme is dedicated to all things nerdy with a mostly-female writing staff. I’ve been enjoying the opportunity to fangirl squeal on Geek La Femme, something that I don’t get the chance to do as often here on The Cat’s Cradle (since this blog is dedicated to writing.) Speaking of which, I need to get back to my NaNo entry. So much to do!
So if you are interested in reading about some awesome, weird nerd topics, like stop-motion animation, fantasy maps, Latin codes, Halo and Skyrim, and weird music videos, please stop on by! You can also follow us on Twitter at @GeekLaFemme. Hope you enjoy!
