It’s the middle of September 2011 now, a week after the 9/11 Tragedy’s 10th Anniversary. This can only mean one thing. We’re already counting down to the end of 2011.
October is where my birthday lies. Not really looking forward to it, considering my age.
Not to mention that I am approaching my 2nd year of being unemployed since I was laid off from my job springtime of last year (2010). Though it may be relaxing to stay home and do whatever you want, I actually do miss working in the workforce. It’s not just because of the money, however it’s just for the sake of my sanity and the habits I’ve gotten used to with the life I’m more familiar with.
Other than the usual job hunting and such, I have missed a lot of things that I used to be in to before I got in to this… one particular fandom.1 One of the things I truly missed is writing fiction— that is, original fiction and fanfiction.
With that being said, I also failed in completing my goal from last year’s NaNoWriMo2 because of a major website project that I signed in for.3 I really had a good plot for it too4, but because of this failure I decided to revive this plot for this November’s challenge. I hope I do get to finish the novel itself, although reaching 50,000 words or more would be good too. Finishing it would be a lot better.
For the NaNoWriMo project I installed a new plugin in my blog called Stories Post Type, where I can store in my notes and commentary for the novel. I can’t release the actual novel itself though until it’s finished from beginning till the end. I’ve installed this same plugin at The Bunnda Channel site for the fanfiction section.
That’s it for now for a “personal” blog entry. Back to working on this site again. :lol:
On the sidenote...
- The end of it is really tragic, to be honest. It’s when I realized that once you get *too close* to a celebrity, your attitude changes significantly and your head begins to inflate. When that happens, the entire fandom becomes unattractive that it forces us dedicated, down-to-earth fans to lose hope and enthusiasm and leave the fandom for good. [↩]

- Failed project. Long story. [↩]
- it was supposed to be a sci-fi romance comedy inspired by one of my favorite video game sagas of all time, Sakura Taisen/Sakura Wars. [↩]
