Okay, I need to get better at this.

Okay, so I've got a few minutes before I go to work.
Shall we talk for a moment?
Okay.
So yeah, I've been working really hard lately! like super hard at work... I'm actually starting to get good at it. After a shitty week last week too! Also, I'm even more stressed because of responsibility blah blah.
BUT ultimately. this is a writing blog (arent they all?) and I usually like to focus on my writing.
Which had been going marvelously.
like seriously.
70 000 words now. 132 pages. I am a machine, and this is with me working full time and always being busy.
Anyways, I think I'll post more writing for realsies this time.
Okay, I'll check back in at lunch. I miss when I blogged eight times a day.
Urgh
Toodles.
Oh and that manga about the sister and her band "Incest" She kissed her brother... urgh. HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS COMING?

Shameful plugging.

This is Janel, she is smart and witty.

She is my good friend who is also an inspiring writer. Seriously she's hilarious.
Please read her stuff.

Anyway, Charlotte and I will be watching the conjuring and i will not be sleeping tonight. Mostly because I slept seven hours during the day in an attempt to get over my sickness... I also got no writing done... urgh, I sometimes miss my time of unemployment when I could pound out 12000 words a day.
Now I end up working thirteen hour days when my coworkers call in sick.
Oh well, money is nice and I want to keep this lovely house we have.
Err... Also at work we got a new wide format colour printer... So I printed out a shirtless picture of Ryan Gosling to have on the wall of our copy centre... by wall I mean inside the door of a cabinet. I did this to show my younger coworkers how to use the machine... They are happy and moral is up.
I also wanted to show one of the female managers who often hops over to help, she's more into George Cloony so I printed out a classy black and white photo of him.
OH YEAH.
Oh and that manga I was reading a few weeks ago with the brother and the sister... they kissed... URGH FULL REVIEW TO FOLLOW.
Toodles

Not yet dead.

Okay so I've been a bad blogger.
I've been pretty busy with being lazy lately.
By that, I mean either writing or working or laying around being sick in a state to do nothing.
Urgh, What has happened? well I'm reading Sanderson's newest book, Steelheart... I am past the point in Attack on Titan where the anime ends and the manga gets REALLY addictive... I am watching bar rescue on netflix... oh and Hybrid is about 48 000 words long meow. and that is with a really bad week of not being able to write much because of being sick.
Anyway, today will be different.
I will sit here and write...and write...and write for about five hours till Charlotte is off work...then we will go to Thanksgiving meal with her brother... oh yes, for those NON Canadians... this weekend is true thanksgiving.

Err... I am really anxious to get writing but I feel I must add more... how bout the fact that Charlotte and I are watching United States of Tara... which I really enjoyed initially... however the writing seems to get WORSE with each season... Which shouldn't surprise me, It is written by Diablo Cody, easily the most overrated of Hollywood writers... like seriously. I'm not fucking with you, I hate her guts.
Mostly because she writes pretentious bullshit that she thinks is feminist but instead pushes the movement back a few decades. She is the worst kind of feminist, she is not subtle, she is not clever, she is a disease in the form of a person holding an HB pencil and writing whatever shit comes to her mind. However, unlike someone like an angst ridden twelve year old boy who has just discovered the feminist article on Wikipedia, she actually gets paid for the excrement she pushes out of her pencil.
Anyway! What I was getting at is Tara had a lot of potential, a great (abeit overdone concept) that she has somehow managed to run into the ground. It's like she realized that the heart of her show, what made it great was the connection between the family so SHE HAD TO DESTROY IT.
She introduces a Male character who is handsome, successful and really nice and I was shocked. Most writers would be trying to make this alternate love interest an ASSHOLE so that the proper love interest (ugly short guy Neal) would look like a superstar in comparison. Because, hey we love an underdog and the underdog must ALWAYS win to the point where it is so overdone. God forbid if an alternate love interest has anything going for him and isn't a total loser we have to depict him as a douche and watch him fail.
So yeah, I was shocked she was going this route, even after the sister character drags this nice guy through ABSOLUTE SHIT... and depicts the underdog as a huge uncaring asshole... he still stuck with her....

UNTIL RANDOMLY THE GUY MAKES A 180 TURN IN PERSONALITY AND BECOMES AN ASSHOLE AND NEAL THE SHORT UGLY GUY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE WE WERE CHEERING FOR THE ENTIRE TIME?

It is so jarring how characters are handled in Tara... The characters are such huge assholes. Everyone refuses to accept responsibility for their actions and they randomly make 180 personality changes.
So yeah, the show starts going to shit... we'll see how it ends, we just started the third and final season.
Anyway, I hate Diablo Cody... She can't write, but she can overwrite very well...
Yes, I hated Juno. It is a terrible mess of a film.
Jenifer's Body... Everyone hated that movie.
Young Adult, I have not seen, but I've heard good things. I pass judgement.
Evil Dead, the remake. I fucking hated this movie, it deserves it's own post.
Her directorial debut is coming out soon, Paradise. Can't wait to destroy it.

Oh, under personal life in her wikipedia page it says this:
"Cody is a feminist.[28][29]"

Like it is self explanatory. Bullshit.

Still got it!

Sorry boys and girls! I have been distracted lately.
By that I mean I closed the tab on blogger. Never doing that again.
Also, I've been writing an insane amount. Hybrid is now over 40 000 words. part 1 is finished. sadly enough it is longer than I had expected with less content. Oh well, it's better this way don't worry folks.
The sad thing is though, my dream of completing a manuscript that is around 100 000 words seems to be going up in smoke... I don't know if I can do it. I really...really...really...like writing...lots. also details it seems too.
That is quite okay, so what has happened... well Attack on Titan finished, very sad. now I am reading the manga, where the art is very sketchy. I don't mean bad, I mean it looks like he drew it really fast. like it was sketched. Also, the first colour pages of the giant Titan are laughable.. he looks like he's made of liqorish.

Okay, so I'm just editing right meow, I may post more of the story! I really hope so.
Will blog later.
This tab stays open.
Toodles.
