On novels and biscuits

Hello all! I realise it has been far too long since I last posted!
Yeah, I've been busy.
Writing a novel.
So for any of you that don't know National Novel Writing Month, go check it out RIGHT NOW, here --> NaNoWriMo :)
Thank me later.
So April and July are both Camp NaNoWriMo, where the goals are a little more customisable and you can be a rebel and do stuff like play scripts, old unfinished things... you get the idea.
And for anyone who hadn't realised...'s July.
I'm writing a novel, people.
And with bourbons, life is good.

As the title says. I have many routines and things I have to go through. They're really, really bizarre. For example:

  • When I eat breakfast I chew on the left side of my mouth, when I eat lunch I chew on both sides and when I eat dinner I chew on the right side. I had this conversation earlier today so I thought I'd mention it.
  • I count my steps everywhere I walk. (I remember two weeks ago it was exactly 3333 steps to my friend's house)
  • Do you get the idea?
So yes, I am weirdly obsessive about routines and...I don't even know. Writing my story now :)

I don't even know...

Okay, so I've kind of abandoned this for a while now and resorted to twitter @tobeyisabel, but I'm posting again so it's not completely neglected :)

Some Things:

  • Wrote a poem for Mother's Day...
  • Doing very little with my life...
  • I don't even know...
Bleh...see, this is why I haven't posted in a while...there is NOTHING to say. I feel so sad - my life isn't even worth talking about *wallows in self pity and then slaps self* Right, that's enough of that, my friend. Uh-oh. Here is a classic example of the first sign of craziness...Ah well, I knew it would catch up with me eventually.
So yes. My life is incredibly boring. Aside from that, I'm in a choir now, which is nice, and stuff like that. So...yeah...

Some things...

Ack...I think I am actually drowning in work. I have so much to do, it makes me want to fall down and just forget...Maybe I should move to Brazil and work in a bar for the rest of my life...No.
So we got back from Devon, I finished my story in time and I'm happy to say it seems to have been thoroughly enjoyed. it was a lovely holiday and I was definitely happy to get away for a while (no laptop = no blog, no twitter, no email & also no mobile signal... incommunicado!)
That's all - I know it's a short post but I seem to have run out of things to say, which is surprising. Probably something to do with my depressingly large pile of papers waiting to be written. Hm.

On Friday we're setting off to Devon to stay in a time-share in Hope Barton and hopefully see some friends down there who - due to the distance - we don't often meet up with.
Other things:

  • It was my Dad's birthday yesterday
  • I haven't finished his present yet
  • It's a top priority
  • It's not finished
So yeah...I'm trying to finish off something I've been writing for him, but I need a little longer and we leave tomorrow so I basically have this evening and then whatever time I can scrounge tomorrow to type furiously and then email it to my kindle (family rule is no laptops on holiday so you won't hear from me for another week or so).
Just thought I'd resurrect myself long enough to update and say I'm not dead, which is a point that could be argued. Done that, sinking back down to the grave of deadlines...

Newcastle weekend!

This weekend we went up to Newcastle to visit my aunt and cousin, which was lovely! Briana watched rather a lot of television (we don't have one at home) and I mostly ransacked the bookshelves and wore my phone battery down listening to music. We had a nice walk around Tynemouth and had lunch in a great pub! Nothing else to add, except to mention the enormous workload waiting for me when I get home!
