Just wanted to stop by and let y’all know that I’ve won NaNoWriMo. It was a grueling month impeded by a full-time job, a weekend road trip, approximately 3-4 days of cold and fever-like symptoms, and an annoyingly addicting game that I picked up on steam for 5 dollars called Recettear. But despite all of that, I checked out at 50,000 on the dot at about 8:30 yesterday, and celebrated with a nice long skype session with a bunch of anime bloggers. It was a fantastic victory lap.
That said, I return with more pressing matters than when I left. Firstly, my anime blog, Bakalaureate, is definitely here to stay. After a fine session with those crazy otaku over skype, I’ve definitely been given a warm welcome despite the blog only a month old, and bogged down rather early by NaNoWriMo. So expect a lot of my writing to go into that.
Secondly, I’ve decided to give my writing/steampunk blog, Steampanku, another shot as well. I have left it to wither away since the end of May, and it definitely deserves my attention, considering the fantastic amount of progress that I’ve made on not one, but two novels in the genre of Japanese aesthetic steampunk. I’ll be definitely blogging more about writing as well on that particular site.
Thirdly, this blog is NOT going to die. I am a WoW player through and through, and I will focus on posting on all three of those blogs once a week. I haven’t decided on a particular schedule yet, though I can imagine that Tuesdays would be beneficial for Frost, since people who suffering from maintenance withdrawal can get their frosty fix instead. I’ll let you know when the time comes.
Lastly, I have acquired my own credit card. After a lifetime of debit card usage, I have finally decided to start building credit history and apply for one. The coolest thing is that the expiry date on the card that was issued to me is printed as 3/14. You could say that the process was…
…easy as pie?
Joking aside, I am going to look into transferring my main to another serverin attempts to find a guild more suitable to my skills, experience, and schedule availability, and quite possibly, on an RP server as well. If you have any leads, please let me know!
Cataclysm arrives in stores on the 7th of December. Is your body ready?
