Five for Friday

1. On the NaNo front I'm just over 20,000 words in...I have some catching up to do. Which is going to be next to impossible since we have family coming into town TONIGHT and then next week is Thanksgiving! Ahhh!!! If I just keep repeating 'I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,' it'll all be okay.

2. The library just notified me that The Raven Boys is finally available for me!!! I'm super excited...and this is yet one more distraction keeping me from my NaNo goal...but it's Maggie Stiefvater, you guys!

3. Did I mention that after revisions Fire and Ice was just over 84,500 words?!?! I must remind you that the original draft was over 128,000 words...I'm pretty dang proud of myself for cutting and making the story tighter and stronger. And I've finally admitted to myself that I'm an over-writer. Is there like a therapy group for this?

4. I watched the City of Bones trailer and am freaking out!!! August can't get here soon enough. Oh, and then there's the Warm Bodies trailer which is also making me quite excited. 2013 is setting up to be a good movie year.

5. I'm seriously craving a hot chocolate right now. I love Star Bucks' Godiva hot chocolate, I have to have one every delicious, it can put you in a chocolate coma.

Have a warm and fun weekend!


  1. Oh my, this list made me so happy! I can't wait for the City of Bones movie! And I'll have to get some Starbucks hot chocolate--so good. And you'll have the best time reading the Raven Boys! Happy Friday!

  2. Great job on revisions! And good luck with Nano! You can do it! :)

  3. I love Starbucks hot chocolate, too. Have a good weekend, and congrats on the 20,000 words.

  4. Great job on your word count!!
    And there's a CoB movie trailer?!? Must search NOW;)
    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving,
    Ninja Girl

  5. If you find the overwriter's help network, let me know. I've got a 130K manuscript that must lose words stat!

  6. Keep up the good work on NaNo! I tagged you for a meme on my blog if you're interested in sharing some of your WIP.
