While doing my work, I found two really two websites to basically help writers…well write!
750words.com << goal is to write 750 words (3 pages) a day with incentives when you do!
writeordie.com << will punish you if you do not hit your target!
I will try to keep with my NaNoWriMo commitment of attacking my unfinished pieces, but I will definitely be utilizing these two sites to get more of my ideas down during the day. While I like Nanowrimo, I know for certain I can’t catch up nor participate this year. HOWEVER- I will make it my mission to take part next year and complete it!
Here’s to hoping!
Ms. Manners on…Public Transportation:
I’m just going to get straight to the point–
(1) When entering a train, please MOVE INTO the car and fan out. I never understood why people stood by the door, knowing fully well that a potential stampede was in front/behind them. Furthermore, if you’re going to play “door man” for the train passengers, you can at least MOVE TO THE SIDE to let people move into the train. It is the most annoying thing in the world to not get on a train and then see the middle of the car empty as it passes by.
(2) Last time I checked, bags didn’t pay the $2.25 for a ride. You did. Either you sit down and put your belongings on top of you, or let someone who actually wants to utilize the space have it. Your belongings aren’t that special. If they were, you shouldn’t be on the train with them. Continue reading →
Ms. Manners Breakout on Personal Space
Now there are a lot of people out there that don’t understand the meaning of personal space…at school, at home, and most certainly at work, but please take heed to the words that are to follow:
Let’s breakdown the meaning of Personal Space: Personal (as in one person, one being) Space (distance, zone, area) is the space in which one person is exhibiting. Some may call it their comfort zone and it can be physical or mental, but in any event it exists. The #1 rule all people on EARTH should adhere to is that of never entering another’s personal space. Sometimes people don’t have enough common sense to understand this, but this will help to better clarify: Continue reading →
I wanted to write last night, and the night before but found myself insanely tired and drowsy.
As of the last two days, I’ve been reading through some of my Ancient Egyptian books, specifically the books on mythology. I started a story back in junior high school (at the height of my Ancient Egyptian obsession) about a girl of middle eastern-asian descent and I wanted some myth and lore of AE in it. Now that I’m committing myself to complete most of my unfinished works, I’m hitting these mythology books on the train, which is my best time for reading.
Currently reading: Legends of the Egyptian Gods by E.A. Wallis Budge
Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends by Lewis Spence
Egyptian Mythology by Veronica Ions
I realize this maybe one of the more harder tasks I’ve decided to take on, as I’ve got to decide which AE mythology system (upper, middle or lower egypt) mythology I want to focus on =/
But, I will persevere.
