Ello ello my fellow toiling NaNoWriMoer’s!
Wow. It’s already November. There’s less than 2 months till Christmas :O I can’t wait bc I’m finally gonna get a phone on Christmas-
Omg Grace you’re 13 how do you not have a phone yet
*shushes you* shush I’m in a good mood today don’t ruin it
I mean technically Thanksgiving is closer than Christmas but I’m not looking forward to it as much bc since I’m vegan I can’t eat most of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes at my family’s thankgiving party thing.
Guess which ones I can eat?
Unfortunately I’m extremely picky so I don’t like any of those XD
Oh well, I’m still glad I won’t be eating any animals.:D
#Goals for November|
- Finish NaNoWriMo
- Figure out how to do a vegan Thanksgiving
- Finally check out the library in my town
- Post weekly updates on my Nano Novels
- Post more in general
- Befriend that cat that keeps coming around
- Improve my drawing skillz
- Reach 250 watchers on Deviantart
At the end of November I’m gonna take a look at this list and see how many of the things I’ve accomplished. Hopefully I’ll be a able to tick off at least a few of them XD
I wrote for like 3-4 hours today, I’m so tired XD
When I asked Ghost to collab with me:
This is why we’re friends, Ghost XD
When Ella asked me to collab with her I was like:
Novel #1 Word Count Goal: 50,000
Words written: 3,644
Novel #2 Word Count Goal: 20,000
Words written: 329
Usually around this point in plotting out a story I start to slowly giving up, but I’m actually doing pretty good now. I guess writing with someone else gives you extra motivation to actually finish XD
Me and Ella are actually thinking of making a series together called ‘Plantsers’ or something like that XD (a combination of ‘plotters’ and ‘pantsers’ also a play on the fact that we’re both vegan/plant eaters XD) (We actually say some pretty funny stuff when we’re writing tho, especially when we’re tired and “drunk” on adrenaline XD) But we didn’t talk about it much so we might not do it XD
EEYYYY WHO WANST SNIPPETS EEEEK
If you made it this far have a cookie XD

“Okay, how did you find me?”
“Er, that’s kind of a long story…” Tess said, slightly blushing. “So when we were kids, I was kind of the—you know—like, motherly figure in our relationship. I always wanted to make sure you were safe and know where you were… So I… I created this tracker that I put in this necklace for your birthday. Well, you know. The necklace. That you’re wearing right now, there it is.” She points to a necklace that’s barely shown beneath Hayden’s shirt. “I bought that necklace for your seventh birthday, and crafted this tracker that I embedded in it… Wait, why am I telling you this?”
At this point, Hayden is staring at Tess.
“Seriously?” Hayden says.
“Yeah… sorry.” Tess says, looking a little abashed.
“Huh. Wow. Okay… That’s… Yeah.” Hayden says, surprised.
“I’m really sorry, I know it was kind of an invasion of your privacy, but I didn’t have any other way, I just wanted to make sure you were safe. And it worked out in the end, right? I wouldn’t have been able to find you without it.”
“That’s… Yeah, that’s okay. I get it.” Hayden spaces out for a moment. “Wait, Tess?”
“Why did you come here?”
“Well… I… I can’t really tell you that.”
I look down the snowy hill. Repositioning myself, I quickly finish snapping my boots to my snowboard. Relishing the cold air for a moment longer, I push myself up and start rolling towards the start of the hill.
“Ember, wait up!” my twin Seth calls from behind me. “Just because you’re ready doesn’t mean I am.” I sigh and awkwardly turn around.
“Yeah well then hurry up, Seth! I want to get this hill done before we have to leave.” Starting to inch forward again, I push my dark, blue streaked hair out of my eyes.
Living in southern Georgia, we had come to Canada for winter break to check out the ski hills. I was loving every minute of it. We had lived here until Seth and I were 13, and even though we were 15 now, snowboarding was an art we would never forget.
As soon as Seth gets up, I hop forward until I’m moving smoothly again. Soon Seth pulls up beside me and we start down the hill.
The wind whips against my face, blowing into my nose open mouth and filling my lungs with sweet mountain air. I let my emotions bubble up and release them in a single yell.
WOOP, I hope you guys liked those XD
