  1. (Hehe, I have some time, but not necessarily inspiration…)

    Yeah, I guess? And I do want it to snow a lot a couple of days before Christmas, but before that and after that…

  2. (NO GIRL YOU KNOW. GO WRITE A POST. πŸ˜› ) (Seriously, not that I’m gonna force you if you don’t have time, though …)

    Well, I know a lot of people who really hate the snow – for numerous reasons. So I guess it depends on the person?

  3. Wow, you were working on a Christmas present for six months?? I totally cannot think that far ahead. I can’t start thinking about Christmas presents (really) until after my sister’s birthday in November. Maybe that’s why I get so stressed 24 days before Christmas…

    But hey, I think homemade gifts are great, even if they’re not as good as store-bought ones. The trick is to try to make your gifts almost as good-and maybe better- than the ones in the store. πŸ˜‰ (Cue more stress…)

  4. (But at least you’ll have posted that one thing … right? I guess?)

    I honestly want it to snow and snow and snow … but yeah, I’m a weirdo … πŸ˜›

  5. I actually made someone something for Christmas this year (a great big bag I knitted that is honestly the awkwardest thing you ever saw … and I switched stitches like three times, so it has an … intersting pattern! πŸ˜› ), so I’m proud. It took me like six months to finish it though … and I actually didn’t know it was going to be anything than a big bulk of knitting until like this month … xD

  6. Yay! (I know, but at the same time I’m worried that I’ll just end up posting one thing and nothing else afterward.)

    Me too! πŸ™‚

    Haha, last year there was a lot of snow! I like lots of snow around Christmas, but then it should just go away. πŸ˜‰

  7. Haha! I tend to be the person who kind of wants to make something or other, but never decides to actually do it… πŸ˜›

  8. Cold Hot cocoa! *high five*

    That’s so much fun!

    Hey, I’m a fish person. You should really clean your fish bowl. XD

    If you want an info overload about fish you can check out But if you want to keep living and breathing something beside fish keeping information, probably a better Idea not to. XD

  9. Haha, yep, Christmas can be crazy …

    That’s very clever! I should make more presents. But I tend to be the kind of person who half-finished crafts and knitted items and stuff like that … xD

  10. Congratulations on winning NaNo! I didn’t do it this year, but I still feel the same wandery lost feeling anyway?? Who knows? Good luck on all your goals!

  11. Thanks! (And yes, you really should post something. πŸ˜› ) Of course you can beta read AFOP! πŸ˜€

    Yeah, I know that feeling. :/ Writing is too hard! *wails* I hope you’re able to figure it out, though! Good luck!

    YAY! I can’t wait until it snows here … hoping it will! Sometimes it only snows every once and a while and sometimes (like last year) we get snow that lasts for months … like, into March I think it was. XD It depends on the year …

  12. Eh, January, February… doesn’t matter. Just as long as it’s after the quite hectic Christmas season. πŸ˜‰

    I avoid it by making all of my Christmas presents. For the (very) few times I buy things, it’s on Amazon. So unless that counts as shopping- and I don’t ‘browse’ for the purpose of buying right away- I don’t think I go Christmas shopping at all.

  13. YAY FOR YOUR DARES! πŸ˜€ *should really post something on my blog hehhheehh* I’m sure you’ll do great!


    Can I beta read AFOP too…? πŸ˜›


    I’m very excited for December because now I actually have time to write! Although I’m struggling with Battle Song. I just don’t feel like I know how to do it, so I don’t want to…

    And CHRISTMAS BREAK I’m excited! It finally snowed here (which is actually quite unfortunate because now I actually have to drive in the snow) but now it also feels like Christmas. I set up all our nativities on Saturday and it made me so happy! πŸ™‚

    Hmmm, I really like hot cocoa and apple cider. Hot chocolate is especially good right after you come inside from playing in/shoveling the snow. πŸ™‚

  14. Great! I’m really looking forward to beta-readers … I can hardly wait! *runs off to edit*

    Oh, that’s really neat! I’d definitely want to read that. Yes, that’s definitely something I don’t see a lot of – especially for young women going through college!

  15. I’d be all over beta reading for you!!

    I’m not sure how it’ll look yet. Maybe a series of essays? But anyway, it’s a book focusing on stuff girls should know through high school and college about living a good life dedicated to Jesus. I think there’s a lot of materials available for older women and younger girls but not a lot for young women, ya know?

  16. Well, I figure some years just aren’t good for NaNo! I don’t know how I’ll manage it once I’m out of school and have a full-time job. And good for you for continuing on with your nonfiction project. What is it? (if you don’t mind sharing, of course!)

    Thank you, Tonya … you’re so sweet! πŸ˜€ I’m hoping to ask people to beta-read in the next couple months if you’re interested. πŸ™‚

  17. πŸ˜† I’m sure I won’t do anything THAT drastic. Maybe just lose my mind, or some small side effect. 😜

  18. It’s so exciting that you were able to do so well with NaNo!!!! I’m beating myself up for not doing it, but I’m working on a nonfiction project now, so I was focusing on interviews and research and such. Eh – it is what it is.

    I am down to read anything you write! You’re so fabulous! Cannot wait to catch a glimpse of the new stuff you’re working on! Yay you!

  19. Yes, I didn’t want to interrupt the holiday season with a book that has nothing to do with Christmas … and I do need to make some changes, too! It might be more like January, though … not sure at the moment.

    Well, I’m glad! It sure is exciting! πŸ˜€ Good for you! *applauds* How do you avoid it?

    Yes, anything that you drink during the winter qualifies as a winter beverage. Kinda. πŸ˜‰

  20. Well, I already have an editor who I’m talking to. (I have to pay for her, haha. πŸ˜› )

    Honestly, I am very attempted to ask you to take a look at it. πŸ˜‰ Still, I don’t want to make you scream at yourself!

  21. Yay for beta readers in February! I’m glad you’re waiting until after Christmas to summon your devoted followers… πŸ˜€

    Apparently I’m in the same boat as you- I’m looking forward to the Christmas season, for the most part. I’m so sorry for you because you have to go Christmas shopping. I don’t like shopping, either. Fortunately, I avoid it almost 100% of the time. πŸ˜› (I probably haven’t gone ‘shopping’ in the classical sense in like two years)

    If you say it’s the most important question, I guess I’ll answer it. πŸ˜€ My favorite beverage is apple cider. We’re still drinking it, so I can say that it’s a Winter drink, right? πŸ˜‰


  22. Congratulations on finishing your novel! πŸ˜„ I personally don’t know any editors that you have to pay to ask for, but if you ever need some feedback and fixing editing mistakes, I’m always open. (I’ve found that I’m good at cracking down on myself, so how hard can it be to help someone else? πŸ˜ƒ) (Why do I suddenly feel like you’ll say yes and when I get the book I’ll freak out and scream at myself for saying this? πŸ˜‚)
