Desperation breeding faith into a pitiful lie...

It's gone. I just finished the third section, and it's gone. 85 pages worth. Drive unreadable. "Bridge Kanulu, 380KB"

"Drive Damaged"

Oh sure, I can get most of it off of here, but I'd gone back n\and made changes to it the whole way through, and I can't get back what I did tonight. 6666 words. I'd caught up to Tuesday.

If anybody has any idea how to access a damaged file on a flashdisk, pleeeeeease. I don't wanna have to write that again, I almost cried killling him the first time!

So no update today. I'm going to get all the LJ entries involving Bridge Kanulu onto my flashdisk, save them as a single word document, in a very paranoid way to three seperate computers, then sob into my pillow for a bit.

Then I'll go re-write it. Hooray.

Once again, my characters didn't want me to finish today, and I only got through three of my bullet points. I've got nineteen more. Damned characters. And, although I'm only posting just over 1,300 words today, I also wrote the start of the next section, because I'm getting bored of this one. But here it is. Just the 1,300 for you, since I don't have the other on my flashdisk.


I's Hungry

Right, this one here's the next chapter, and I'm getting this weird feeling that the novel is going to continue being written long after november. I've got... *counts* four more sections to go, and this one I'm on now is slightly more than half the word count so far. I was gonna end it today, but James and Julia wouldn't let me, they wanted some time together before this murder I mentioned at the start of the section. (Bridge Kanulu XII, on November 12th. The end of it.) And yeah. They're basically the whole update today, which is quite fluffy, and James gets awkward, then normal, then happy, then angry, then happy, then happy-er, then paranoid, then happy, then drunk. And happy. He's slightly horny the whole way through, only I'm not letting that show. I think Julia's mainly happy. Speaking of Julia, I have recently realized something, and I unashamedly admit that I've based Julia on my first girlfriend, or what I thought she was like before she cheated on me. Because of that, I've decided to go back and make her five foot tall, and fourteen. She's not going to grow anymore, which'll be funny, because I'm going to make James end up about 6'10". Since his dad's only 5'7", His dead Mum had to be tall. OK, so she was twenty feet tall and died when she walked into a powerline, OK? All the height comparisons are actually accurate, I used my little brother. Aren't you guys lucky, getting all these extra facts, just because you're reading on my LJ? Wonder if I should put these bits in the book.

On another note, I sat my english exam today! There's three papers, each meant to take an hour, and we've got three hours to do it in, which is nice. I had a demon shot (very concentrated energy, tastes really bad, but does the job) right beforehand, and I was BUZZING. I did the easiest paper first, and wrote answers maybe twice as long as they wanted. Guess how long it took me? Two... hours. Then there's two essays I have to write, and neither were on topics I'd prepared for. I chose the one I knew best and did that one first, and if I get an excelence I'll be over the moon, then whipped off the second one in about twenty minutes, for which I hope I pass. I finished it about twenty seconds before the lady walked to the front and said time's up. I think my pen nib caught fire for a bit, but the flow of ink was so fast it put it out. And I've run out of wool for my knitting and can't buy anymore, because there's a birthday and Christmans coming up. And when there's eight members of your family, Christmas can be expensive. I'm buying a couple for friends too. Well... semi-buying, semi-making. I wrote at least two thousand words before I even got started on my NaNo today, and I wrote a lot of NaNo. I'm up to 32,735 words, and therefore only about five hundred away from the goal for the day after tomorrow. Here's today's.

What think you? Cute, n'est-ce pas?

For those of you who haven't been reading along as I update, and can't be bothered going through them all, I'm going to put up the entire manuscript so far. There's a couple of changes in it, so any of my avid readers (I love you all!) with a spare hour or five up their sleeve, you can read it too. It's in the next entry. I was gonna put it in this one one, but LJ tells me it's too long to post.

edit: I can't! LJ won't let me! The manuscript was too long, and then half the manuscript was too long, and then A THIRD of the manuscript was too long! And then I gave up.

Writer's Block: Book review

What (if any) books would you ban from a high school library? Are there certain subjects that you feel are inappropriate for teenagers regardless of literary merit?

TWILIGHT! AAAUGH, KILL KILL KILL!

There is no literary merit involved.

I'VE CAUGHT UP! In fact, according to the NaNoWriMo word checker craph, I've caught up to tommorrow's word goal. Muahahaha.
I've introduced James' love interest. She had to show up sometime, after all, and they ARE in a gang. Where you're supposed to start young. Don't worry, tough, she does want to. And they're soulmates, so it's alright.

And, hey, I had my first girlfriend at age twelve. Here we go. 30,164 words!

What three items would you place in a time capsule to help future generations understand you?

a coathanger, a pregnancy test and a boiled egg.

I AM SUPERMAN! Not only have I written almost two day's worth of Bridge Kanulu, but I have also managed to write the END of the story, study for my english exam, practise my tuba, deliver 175 newspapers, pay my fine... and act almost normal! And I'm watching Shaun the Sheep with my little brother.

Here's the story. I've got 27,334 words!

Sorry I didn't update yesterday. Like I said, I had my maths exam in the morning, (I'll be surprised if I pass trig), but the reason I didn't update is because there's been a bug going around my family, and I was the latest victim. So there I was, tapping away at my keyboard, brain churning along at something less than half speed, and rapidly decelerating. At the point where I'm normally finishing off my word count for the day, I had eight-hundred and fifty, and wsa falling asleep. And my sleep schedule got really, really weird, which was annoying. But I've got to yesterday's word goal, so I'll post that now, and I might post again later today.


Blah

Now, before I get to the story, I you all to know that I got my maths exam tomorrow, and will be freaking out about how I did for most of the afternoon.

On a side note, today my music collection expaded to 21 Gb, because I stole my guitarist's MP4 and took it home and copied it.

Alright, let it rip. 23,272 words, 2,212 of them today,
