I'll be diving back into this challenge again this year. I've done it all four years so far and I love it. Despite me going into my final semester at school and preparing for graduation in May, I am still pledging to write 150k words this year! =)

Feel free to join, and get your words out in 2012!!


GetYourWordsOut: Back for a 4th Year!

Holy crap. I started writing the long suffering baseball novel yesterday. I am slowly putting together character files/sketches, but I have the names all set up and the overall team put together.

I have the opening scene mostly written and so many little dialogue pieces floating in my head.

Ultimately, my focus for 2011 is still In The Spotlight, (because it is my first love, and I can never leave Ava, Ryan, Lily, Nathan, and the rest of the story behind) but since my pledge for this year's [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout is 150K words, I thought I'd put another project into play. Right now, the baseball fic is called Stealing Second, but that is absolutely subject to change. I actually have the title 3-2 Count fluttering around in my brain, but who knows.

I also have a hankering to get back to the NCIS series and work with Tony and Hannah again this year. We shall see.

2011 is going to be great. I can feel it. I've got school starting in a week from Monday, and I've got my sweet Cody kitten keeping me happy, and I'm hoping that I will keep my job after this week. My boss is deciding which of the holiday hires to keep on. I am hopeful I will be one of them, but I also know that it's not the end of the world if he doesn't keep me on. I love my co-workers and the place of work in general, but I've already decided that if I should happen to get let go, I will get through the first month back in school, then job hunt again. With luck, I will be done with my AA degree by the end of 2011, or Spring of 2012 at the latest, and I can dive into a new career with a renewed energy toward work. But I can't lie...any good vibes you're willing to share with me about keeping my current job or at least awhile longer would be appreciated! =)

Ugh. Off to bed. Seriously. Work at 10 am.

Happy 2011 to you all! This year will be excellent for so many reasons. I have a good feeling about it. *g*

It's been awhile. Not a ton to say,but hey.

Valentine's Day was nice, and spent with my parents. Saturday we went to a later lunch and went to the movies. The mom and I saw "Valentine's Day" (love!), and the dad went and saw "The Wolfman". There was drooling over Eric Dane by me, for the record. Guh. Just guh. But the dad gave me a pretty red rose (which sits on my nightstand at the moment) and a Target gift card, and the mom gave me a gorgeous new pink purse and matching wallet. Hee. I am addicted to pink and to purses.

Work is good. Tiring, but good.

Am trying to plan a trip to Oregon in April to see the BFF (hahaha!), her husband, and my niece and nephews. Hoping it will all pan out! It also looks like Dad and I will be going to Vegas sometime this summer. I haven't been there in 7 years!

The writing is a challenge so far this year, but I'm relatively sticking to it! Some days are better than others, let me tell you! I have so much story in my brain, and yet, sometimes it just doesn't flow. But I'll get it there, and by golly, I'll have 100k written for In The Spotlight. Because...yes.

Music wise...am completely in love with Lady Antebellum's sophomore effort "Need You Now". They sound amazing, and there's not one song I skip. Amazing songs again. NYN is a given, but I'm in love with "Love This Pain" and "Hello World". Gah. And I lovelovelove how Charles thanks his brother Josh again in the liner notes. It made me smile. I am so looking forward to Josh's new country album within the next few months.

Am currently listening to several live shows from John Mayer that I dled yesterday. He's been doing "In Your Atmosphere" again lately---I love that! At Birmingham, he mixed it with "Something's Missing". Sigh. Love! And geez, he did "Free Fallin'" too. He's trying to kill me. Seriously. I'm still in love with Battle Studies as well. Heartbreak Warfare just kills me. Thank goodness it's the current single!

Ugh. Bed now. Work most of the week, and have Friday off. I've been glued to the Olympic coverage, and I'm knitting a blanket for a friend/former co-worker who is having a baby this summer. So many projects! Heh.

Hope you all are well. Good night! (morning?!?)

It's been a very nice Christmas week. Work out the wazoo. It's been very busy, which is good for us retail grunts. Heh. The boss (Summer) gave us (her managers) a cute card filled with gift cards to restaurants in the Village, which rocks.

Spent Christmas with the parents, of course. Went to the house after work on Christmas Eve, had sandwiches and snack stuff, and then we opened presents. My family, as always, was way too good to me. They got me lots (and I mean lots) of makeup (which, anyone who knows me knows I have an addiction to lip gloss), plus a pair of gorgeous handmade glass earrings, two new necklaces (an S pendant and a silver cat pendant), a new bluetooth headset for my cell, an Amazon gift certificate, a gift card to Ulta, stuff from Bath and Body Works, and Britney's "Curious" perfume (it's one of my favorites).

But the two big ones were amazing. Mom got me and my dad tickets to the June 25th, 2010 Giants/Red Sox game at AT&T Park. Color me so beyond excited, and already hoping the Timmy is pitching that night. Hee. Then, the parents got me a brand new digital camera. My old one was pretty lousy, and they knew I wanted a good one for when I go to concerts and things. So they got me a fantastic new one that I can't wait to start using, Maybe I'll actually put new photos up on Facebook. Haha.

All in all, a fantastic Christmas. We went to see "Sherlock Holmes" yesterday and had a good time...a very entertaining movie!

Put in my writing pledge for 2010 with [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I am going to write 100K words this coming year, but on a single project. I'm going to settle in and focus on the nvoel this year for sure. I'm seriously going to flesh things out and make it come together, along with really developing these characters that I love so much.

Planning a trip to Oregon to vist Rach, Jason, and the kids in February. I miss my BFF terribly.

Addicted to Lady A's new song "American Honey", along with all the songs from Glee. Lovelovelove!

Oy. Bed soon. Hope everyone's holidays have been excellent!

Sitting in my living room with Aaron the Acer and I finally found a wireless connection! Woohoo! Am continuing on my SportsNight Renaissance and am watching "The Quality of Mercy at 29K". One of my favorite, favorite eps, and now that I work for a company that sponsors several of the world's best climbers, it means a lot more. I am fairly sure this ep is based off of Ed Viesturs and Peter and Jim Whittaker. So wonderful. Lovelovelove it! Yay for Everest climbs!!

Am on a hunt for a new desktop computer. Leo is finally starting to die out, I'm afraid. The mom and I scoped out Best Buy and I think I found a good deal, but I'm going to shop a bit more before I go ahead and buy the sucker. Sad thing is that I am already thinking of names for it. Haha. I'm so lame.

Am also thinking about a new car. Sam the Saturn is six years old, and while he only has 48000 miles on it, I'd so like to have something cute and sporty. I keep saying that if I could find a Saturn Sky for a decent price and payment, I'd take it in a heartbeat. We shall see what happens before Saturn goes obselete. Heh.

Totally being obsessive with taking echinacea and using hand sanitizer with this whole H1N1 thing. Eep. Lord knows I don't need to get sick, but I feel so sorry for those who have had it or are getting it. Yikes. I think, however, my allergies are raging again, which sucks.

The novel writing muse is attempting to play tonight--something I am rather grateful for. I keep coming up with bits and pieces in my head and yet I can't seem to put them together. Sigh. This will happen, dang it. Grr.

Bed soon. Work at 8 am.

Good night!

Um. Eep. I apparently haven't updated in six weeks. Color me a slacker. I have no real excuse except for work has been crazy and I've just been distracted by other things lately.

Yeah. Work is good. I love that place, I really do. Business is good, and we're really gearing up for holiday. I've been with EB for almost 10 months now and it feels like home. The 'place I used to work' didn't feel like home for a good year. Now? I'm so--happy. Even when I have to go in and work on my day off, I know I can complain to my boss a bit and get a chuckle out of her, and then I can get over it and get my butt on the sales floor and run the business! Love it and my work peoples.

New music rules my life. I've really been stuck on Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" and Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" the past couple of weeks, and I am beyond excited for John Mayer's "Battle Studies" next month. Finally a new Mayer album! YAY! Also psyched for the Glee soundtrack. January 26th, 2010 is Lady A's sophomore record, "Need You Now". Woohoo! Now if I could just get a new Josh Kelley album and Josh Groban ("Who is Josh Groban!?! Kill yourself!") album, all would be good.

TV rocks this season. Glee rules my life at the moment. I am nothing if not a Gleek. The Big Bang Theory owns me, as I adore Sheldon. Jim Parsons is the most adorable thing. NCIS and CSI: NY are awesome again this season, and my CSI: Miami is so back to the show I adore. Loving this season to pieces (how can I not love my red-haired boyfriend!?). Also loving Grey's Anatomy again this season. And as wrong as it may be, I just cannot get into NCIS: LA, regardless of how hot LL Cool J is. Maybe I'll watch it after the season ends and see. It's just not my thing at the moment, I suppose. It's nothing without my Tony. Heh.

Writing is still going strong for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I'm up about 10,000 words on the year, so this is of the good. I have dug back in to the novel a bit more lately, as the muse may possibly be creeping back there. If I could keep the muse on that subject, I would be a happy camper!

The parents got me a Wii for my birthday a week or so ago, and I've been having way too much fun with that thing. Addicted to the bowling, baseball, and tennis. Bought MLB 2K9 for it the other day, since my Timmy is the cover boy. have been fussing with the Wii Fit thing the last few days too. I love the hula hoop!

Yeah. Rambling now. Off to write...or something. =)

I'm so looking forward to tonight's MLB All-Star Game. My Timmeh is the NL starting pitcher (rightfully so!) and will probably pitch two innings. I'm so proud of that boy! And proud of Matt Cain too, even though he won't be able to pitch tonight after being hit by a line drive last week. But Timmy will do a great job tonight and I can't wait to see his introduction! Eeee!

And baseball---oh, my beloved baseball. Last Thursday, the Dad and I went to SF for the Giants/Padres game. Watched TImmy take a no-hitter to the 7th inning, saw Molina, Ishikawa, and Uribe hit home runs, and had an amazing time. THEN! The next night, Friday--Jonathan Sanchez pitched the first no-hitter in the Major Leagues all season. God, I was so beyond proud. (even though Dad and I missed seeing it in person by one day!) After the terrible season he's had so far, he gets tossed back into the rotation after being demoted to the bullpen and after Randy Johnson gets hurt--and he throws a no-hitter. It's beyond awesome, and he deserves the credit so very much. And my beloved Aaron Rowand freakin' saved the game with his AMAZING catch in the 9th inning. I have unholy love for that man, let me tell you. And all the hugs and the tears from Jonathan's father, who was watching his son for the first time as a starter in the majors. What a story. Sob. I've cried a lot watching the footage and looking at the photos from Friday night. Meep.

And the week has just gotten better! I got an email yesterday form the head fan club guy (Luke), with the Keith Urban fan club, and I was picked to work the fan club booth at the concert on Friday night. Yay! I'm one of the Customs Agents, and get to stamp my fellow Monkeys' passports/scrapbook pages before the show starts. Color me psyched. I never thought I'd get picked, so I was really surprised to get the email yesterday afternoon. I'm so looking forward to seeing Keith again and seeing Sugarland. Plus, I'm taking my dad, the best date ever. Heh.

Am out at the parents' house dog sitting while the mom and dad are on a two day vacation. I'll be doing the same next week when they go to who knows where. Haha. Speaking of said dogs, Dawson is at my feet attempting to get me to play. He just might sucker me in.

Writing still good. May have agreed to co-write and edit a book with a friend. We'll see what comes of that! I couldn't believe I was even asked, but I agreed readily. Looking forward to it, if it comes to fruition!

Off to attempt being productive before the game starts at 5. Yippee!

teehee!

Still in love with David Nail's "Red Light". And am so proud that it's going up the charts right now. I can't wait until the album ("I'm About To Come Alive") comes out next month!

Work is--really good. We've been dealing with some news the past couple of weeks that has got us all a bit unnerved, and yet so hopeful. So far, the news is very, very good and we are remaining positive about it all. Plus, we had an amazing month of June business wise. Heh. We worked our butts off for it, that's for sure. But I seriously love all my co-workers and never fail to laugh and enjoy my job. It's nice. In fact, today, co-worker Tom and I were talking baseball. We like to give each other a hard time because I am a Giants fan and he is a Dodger (EVIL!) fan. And just--all of them--they're so fantastic. But we're all hoping for the final word to come down as to what is going on in the next few weeks.

And on another old work front, karma still continues to work in fantastic ways. And I may or may not have gloated just a bit when I got the news. Heh. I cannot confirm nor deny it. Really.

Then! Speaking of the Giants above, they are great this season. Dad and I have been to two games so far this season, and are going to the game in SF tomorrow night vs. the Padres. Timmy is pitching and I am so excited to see him again. Plus Aaron and Franny and Randy Winn, and the Panda! Ahh, my Pablo. We're so voting the boy in to the ASG this year dang it. We SF fans are voting for Sandoval, and Ian Kinsler of the Rangers for the AL. Heh. But yay for games. This will be another good time in San Francisco! Dad and I are leaving around noon and driving up to my beloved ballpark. I get to squee at the Timmy again. Meep.

Watched bits and pieces of the MJ memorial yesterday. John Mayer was brilliant as always, and Michael's gorgeous little daughter just broke my heart. Such a brave girl. I so wanted to just hug her! But overall, just kind of a sad event. I hope he's finally at peace.

Keith Urban concert in just over a week! So psyched to see him and Sugarland. I can't wait to hear "'Til Summer Comes Around" live. Gah! Excited for my fourth KU show.

Writing is fantastic. I'm up about 6,000 words for the year so far and it's kind of nice to feel accomplished. I have, however, slacked off on the novel. Sigh. It's so frustrating to be so easily distracted by the shiny, pretty things. (read: Chris Pine and Zach Quinto and various other shiny things!). But I seriously am vowing to get back into my story. I've revamped my cast list just a tad (damn you, Pine! Haha) and perhaps have a fresh mindset on a few things. Perhaps I did need the time away to revamp again. But I ahve to work more on it, or I'll never feel like I've accomplished what I was hoping to with this year-long writing challenge.

Randomly--I need a new moodtheme. I need to hunt down a Star Trek one, seriously.

Off to be relatively productive--and pack my bag to take to the house tomorrow. Must find all my orange and black gear. My jersey, my Timmy shirt (which I now want an Aaron Rowand one too!), my SF sweatshirt, and my self-knit scarf. Also need to paint my nails orange like I do for every game we go to.

Good night!
