Greetings and howdy! I saw the NaNo Sprint link in the Newsfeed so, as is my wont, I just had to check out your Bio. Toad Suck, Arkansas, eh? I had to check that out, too. While the town's name was voted America's most "embarrassing or unfortunate" town name back in 2012, I just think it's another cool bit of Americana. *Thumbsupr*
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Do you otherwise need to get some writing in? Or any kind of productivity? I'm running productivity sprints on my YouTube channel from 3-5 PM Central time. I'd love to have you join me.

I've just edited an item in my portfolio:
Count Your Many Blessings  (E)
In a crazy, mixed-up world, can we remember the good? A quick pick-me-up on a bad day.

This has needed a new banner for a long time. I was able to use Canva to update it.

Joyful 11th Anniversary!
It's only August and I'm already anxious for NaNoWriMo. I've tried to - or at least dreamed about - planning a YA sci-fi trilogy, the first book I was originally going to write during the April edition of Camp NaNoWriMo, then July. ... Yeah, didn't happen. But doggone it, I'm gonna do it!!! I've started a bullet journal for writing/NaNoWriMo and trying to figure out what all to put in it. *Writing* *PenG* *Pencil*
I'm starting to plan a story about a geek sidekick-intern who suddenly has to take on the role of superhero when her assigned hero is caught along with several other heroes.

But I'm trying to figure out the villain's motivation. What causes her to capture the heroes? How did she become a villain in the first place? I was thinking that she was once a superhero, too, but something happened.

What could have happened? Your thoughts?
The supervillain created all the superheroes.
Thundersbeard 30DBC JULY HOST , that's an interesting thought. Why would the supervillain create the superheroes? Was she a villain in the beginning? What turned her villain?
Practicing procrastination. I have two homework assignments I need to finish--one due before midnight--but all I can do is update some blog drafts on my writing/reading blog. And make duct tape wallets.

My goal was to try to write one short story a week for the year, but so far I haven't been able to finish a single story, and I somehow didn't write at all last week. But I won't dwell on it. I'll just try again this week and keep on going.
Me, too! Procrastinating on homework. What classes are you taking? Did you finish that homework, yet?
Do try again, and keep on going!
Write On!
iluvhorses , I'm taking Educational Linguistics, Morphology and Syntax, and Exploring Concepts in Biology. I'm sure I did get that homework finished. As for the writing, it's been weeks and I can't remember to do it! Yeek! Well, like you said, I'll try again.
Good luck with NaNo!!!
