Writer's Block: Night tremors

Thinking, mainly. I'm always thinking anyway and it's impossible to turn my brain off but at night, or when I'm enduring long bus or train journeys, my mind simply goes into overdrive. I think about Jason, university, writing, the day's events... and probably whatever else pops into my mind. When you can't sleep for thinking it's inconvenient, but I do get some pretty good ideas for stories when I'm thinking late at night. And I do pass out... eventually.

Next up, work and procrastination. Most students would probably agree. You've got 700 words to write on an essay and the deadline is tomorrow... stay up! You want to go to bed but LiveJournal is calling... check your f'list and wind up trawling the bowels of the Internet for funny macros about cats wearing ponchos.

And of course there's my sister Shannon, whose room I share. We're just as bad as each other, really - we talk into the wee small hours irrespective of what school or uni engagements we might have tomorrow. Usually the topic of choice is funny school stories, and I've got many. My high school was literally insane and Sixth Form gave me the most entertaining two years of my life. Plus her high school is full of bitches and odd people, so she always has something to contribute.

Last we have 'Rocketman' across the road. Nicknamed so because he has a Subaru that sounds like a flipping shuttle launch every time he turns the ignition. And he likes to drive at - shall we say, rather unconventional hours. *shakes fist at him*

Just a Little Something Before I Go to Bed

Tuesday's my busy day. I usually have two tutorials and a lecture, with a free hour between the lecture (Philosophy) and the last tutorial (English Language). I have to get the bus at 10:30am, and I usually get home around 6pm.

Tomorrow's not so bad; I only have a creative writing workshop from 2-3 so I'll be getting the 12:30 bus and getting home at 5pm instead. I really enjoy those sessions, actually; afterwards I always have this burning desire to write and it's fantastic. With NaNoWriMo 2011 kicking off in six days, this kind of motivation is precisely what I need.

As per usual, what I write this year will be a load of freewheeling bollocks and I can't wait to get going. In case I haven't informed you all as to what I'm doing this year, I'll be working on two novels; 'Chaos at the Jazz Club' and 'You Know You Got (No) Soul'. Both ideas have been kicking around in my head for quite some time so I think it;s time to give them life!

Today's been a laugh, bantering pre-tutorial with Meg, Kerry and Aisling. I can't be a complete social reject in university as while we were waiting for tutorials today I just threw myself in, acted my usual self and had everybody laughing. Making people laugh is probably one of the best feelings ever; I often worry that I'm a bit dull, so when I say something and get such a response it's the ultimate reward - gives me some sense of self-worth. But yeah, today's been good craic and I've been getting along with people even better. Consequently, I'm satisfied.

Anywho... )

Well then, people of the Blogosphere! I am writing to you all from my very own laptop! Isn't that exciting?

It's a £369.99 HP Pavilion g6 in purple, and IT'S MINE. At last, my very own laptop! No more fixing the mess that other users have created; I can download what I want, and have my ENTIRE music collection on the hard drive, because nobody else has a say. I can take it to university and avoid the cut-throat competition for library computers during exam times. I'll never again have to ask 'when can I go on?'.

I have my own laptop, and it's just as glorious as I'd always envisioned.

Mum and I went to town together for the first time since my arrival today... )
