Yet Another SSF Update

Quick Update: I have...way too many songs revolving in my mind right now.

So, welcome back. Or not. Whichever you prefer. I'd been sorta burdened by fall break and the journalism computer lab being taken, so I guess you can say Some Screaming Fangirl took a two-week break. But, I bring good news.

1. We start HTML in Web Design class this week. In a little while, this blog is going to look pimp.

2. I'm getting a job. I know this. This way I can afford internet at home, muhahaha.

In personal news, my cat Bella (can you tell I got her during my Twilight phase?) just sprouted her fourth litter of kittens yesterday. Anybody willing to pay for shipping and handling? They're free (just kidding...maybe). Also, I've been preparing an awesome costume as of and my friend are going to be escapees from a mental institute. It can technically be counted as research for my book though, so...yay?

In writing news, I've been getting loads of last-minute drafting done. My goal is still finish this LAST AND FINAL draft by Decemember, and throw it Kristin Nelson's way. Speaking of the Pub Rants genius...has anyone else tried going to that amazing agent's blog? It's not working too well for me anymore. And if it's just the school computers being idiots, I'll scream.

In just plain book news, the contest I won (by a technicality, but still) about an era ago to win a copy of THE DEMON's LEXICON finally paid forward, and the now in my mother's possession in her town.

In musical news...haha, favorite band + new music video x new videos of them answering fan questions = very happen fan. Which band is this? Why, SICK PUPPIES, of course.

And in random news...I recently learned of an interesting phobia. Apparently there are people in the world who fear that, wherever they are, a duck is watching them. Pretty interesting stuff. Can't you see books written about that?

So, I have blog posts ready. Writing, Publishing, and the Teenager, of course (and if you missed the last post, here's a link). And a few million "Rec of the Weeks" (I saw EASY A for my birthday, so expect it to be about actress Emma Stone). As for random...who knows?

Okay, signing out. What's going on with you guys? Any new writing accomplishments? Share your stories, I like you guys. Talk to again, and out for the ducks.


  1. HTML is a fun language. Have fun with it! I'll look forward to seeing the splendiferous new changes the next time I stop by.

  2. Can't wait for the snazzy new blog! ;)
    Yeah, I have a goal to finish my WIP by the end of the month- eek!

    Hey, I gave/ passed on an award to you on ma blog! xxx

  3. Thanks for all the support guys! I hope the new blog doesn't look too wretched. And @Katharine, good luck with the goal!

  4. Can't wait to see what you do to your blog. :)

    I finally realized what was wrong with my first chapter. It existed! I've deleted it and reworked my second chapter so that it's now my first one. My first chapter didn't exactly jive with my query. They were almost two separate books. :P
