A New Challenge!

Some people say I have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Maybe I do and maybe I just like to do a variety of different things all of the time in order to avoid boredom. The other day I received an email from the NaNo website about Script Frenzy. (I may have mentioned this in a previous post) And I have decided to give it a whirl. Starting April 1, 2010 and ending April 30, 2010 (30 days) to write a 100 page script. If you've ever tried NaNoWriMo then you know what I'm talking about. I figure maybe I can do it. I've never actually written a script before. I've played around with the idea and jotted a few ideas and dialogue down, but as far as figuring the format, I'm absolutely clueless. But I figure I'll dive right in. Who knows, maybe it'll be something I'm good at. 

One of my best friends over at Confessions of a Writing Mama, many of you have probably read some of her blog at some point, is going to enter Script Frenzy as well. So I won't be alone. Come join the fun everyone! I can't wait to enter NaNo this coming fall. Last year I entered, but only made it to about 11k words. This year I plan to make it to the entire 50k. (fingers crossed) and with Script Frenzy I plan to have my 100 pages by April 30th. (fingers crossed yet again) :) 

Time to get busy with putting my office back together. Yesterday I went out Staples and bought me a nice BIG new desk for my office. It sorta swallows up my little 10 inch netbook, but there is plenty of room for me to work. And I can use my 17inch Gateway on the same table as my netbook and not be crowded. I love it!

While I was out I swung by Home Depot (my all time favorite store) and discovered a nice sale on ground cover plants. I bought 8. So after I get my office put in place, and in hopes that the wind will die down, I have some gardening to do. I love warm weather. So much to do although it tends to pull me away from my desk which means less productive, but at least I get other things done.

i LOVE your new desk! it's so beautiful!
I toyed with doing script frenzy, but it just came down to the fact that i didn't want to have to look up how to actually, you know, write a script. Also i should be revising, not starting something new. So it was a pass for me

From writer to writer your desk is awesome. My laptop is jealous. You should see mine; it's rather pathetic. Good luck on the Script Frenzy. I'll have to check it out. :)
