National Novel Youtube Reading & Writing Month

Yes, I did just make up NaNoYoReWriMo (National Novel Youtube Reading and Writing Month). I was actually just mashing the two things I wanted to talk about today- NaNoWriMo and my Youtube Project.

First things first- NaNoWriMo is coming up in just a few short days. (Yay!) I haven't touched The Night Stalker for weeks, but I have been working on Love By Text, or, as I now like to call it, Loving Amelia Perfect. It took me a while to find a name that fits. But, I had an epiphany and I realized that Loving Amelia Perfect is the best title I've found so far. I'm hoping that both novels will go far with in the next two to three years. I made a promise to myself that I would be published before I left high school. I intend to keep that promise.

Second and Last of all, I had an idea for a Youtube Project, which I believe is one of my goals on If it isn't, it is now. Anyway, my idea is this. I need to world on my speaking, reading aloud, and individual speech skills. In order to work on these things, I thought I would read from a book (That is in the Public Domain), record myself, and put it on Youtube. To make this exciting, I would preform each section that I read as if I were preforming a Prose piece in Speech. For those of you that have no idea what speech or prose even is, basically, I'm reading a story and acting out little pieces of it along with changing my voice to match the characters' voices. I wanted to know what you guys thought of this idea and what Public Domain books I should read. Feel free to post a comment, or vote in the voting box to the right.

I hope this project will not only help me, but also spread awareness about free literature and books in the Public Domain. If all goes well, more people will be inspired to read more.

Better Writings,

Roast Beef

So, I'm sitting on the couch watching Step Up 2 when I decided that for the first time in days I actually want something to eat. Being sick sucks. No food and very little water for three days. I'm reaching into the fridge for the biscuits which, of course, is at the very back of the fridge. In the process, I end up knocking an entire roast to the floor. The juices spilt everywhere, and I'm surprised that my cat isn't around licking the entire kitchen (and my feet) to pieces.

Besides being sick and missing probably my last home volleyball game ever and a tournament, school's been really busy. With homework, volleyball, and band (Speaking of band, I am currently first chair, second clarinet- OHYEAH!). I've had no time for anything- reading, writing, blogging, vlogging, arting, or journalling. But life is what it is.

Many of you know that the ever so amazing NaNoWriMo is coming up in just a few weeks. So, to spare your eyes and my fingers, I'll just post a link that talks about NaNoWriMo for those of you that are a bit behind on the times.

This year, I'm not doing anything new. I am finishing the Night Stalker. I WILL DO IT!!!!!! Otherwise this might never get done and I have worked to hard for it to not be done. Yes! Motivation, plus a little procrastination. We'll see how this November goes.... See you then!
