    THANK YOU!!! I'm nowhere near done with my actual story, and I don't know what exactly to do with the plot I wrote myself into, but anyway... I would have responded sooner, but the wifi was off at my house because of construction. Meh. At least we have electricity now.

    My show went pretty well. Tiring, but it was fun. I hope that yours was successful! And that you don't feel sick. I once saw a show where the main character has actually been throwing up earlier in the day, but he managed okay. Hope the medicine helps! Is this the play where you're "Voter #1" and "French Person"? I wish you (belated, sorry) luck with that tricky accent.

    Is it just me, or is December flying by?

    Thanks! You can probably tell that it's the NaNoWriMo 2015 web badge (or image or whatever it's called.) Except now I've changed it to the winner's web badge. I bet you know what that means... I GOT MY GOAL! 30,000 WORDS IN A MONTH! WOOHOO!

    Anyway. That presentation sounds awesome! I wonder how people choose (or make, or whatever) sound effects, especially for animated films, and how they add them in. The answer is probably very simple, but I don't know much about technical stuff. Writing films and/or being an actress is somewhat similar to my dream careers, though a writer would take first place.

    Speaking (or writing? I always get confused when saying that) of acting, it's now Tech Week for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I'm at the theater from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's tiring, but fun. I'd like it better if the lights weren't as bright, however.

    I'm a little behind (I've written 8,000 words so far) but I'm going to get on track in the next couple of days. Your creative writing class sounds fun!

    If someone changes their avatar/signature, are you ever thrown off? I am, and I keep forgetting the changes I made to mine. I need to think a bit about my name lists, so I probably will in December, but not until then.

    Have a nice weekend! (Yeah, yeah, it's not even Friday. Still!)

    I'm about halfway through on my goal for today! I feel very accomplished, but it's only about 500 words. Getting ahead of myself here, need to write more before congratulating myself!

    If I can figure out a way, I'll show you some of it. The thing is that it will probably be horrific until I get some time to edit it, because I'm just trying to write it all out.

    In a video workshop class I'm taking, we're going to start narrative storytelling! Narrative writing is fun.

    Happy Halloween!

    It's fine--especially as I took twice as long as you did to respond. Sorry 'bout that!

    My main experience with affected "French accents" are very nasal... but it IS a pretty language (and the names are great!)

    I may have mentioned this before, but speaking of writing, I am doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month.) Look it up if you don't know what it is, it's really cool! Every year it's in November. I'm going to... finally... try... though I probably won't get that far. Since I'm not old enough for the adult program, which is a 50,000 word goal, I'm doing the Young Writer's Program, which has a 30,000 word goal. I want to write 1,000 words a day. Half of my mind is screaming "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH," half is a little excited, half is continually reminding me to plan, and half is wondering what happened to my ability to work with fractions. I've changed my planned stories three times (four?) since I planned to do it, but now I'm settled. I think. Have a nice week!

    I've done that too... we all blunder sometimes.

    I'm a little more into being Father Christmas now that I have my own little elf henchman (no idea why) and I've gone to the first practice. The costume ladies measured us already. I think my costume will be pretty fun! The one thing is that though my voice is low, it's definitely a girl's voice, and I'm supposed to do a British accent, which is not what I'm especially good at. I tried to get out of it by saying that Santa is universal, but oh well! My problem with doing British accents is that I'm totally deaf, so even though I have a cochlear implant that helps me hear, I have a 'deaf accent,' and that accent mixed my my British accent attempt doesn't really sound right...

    As for your creative writing class, I don't get that! The teacher could just say, "Write a story with ____." Not much work for the teacher and actual writing, if nothing else. Maybe you could suggest some ideas, if it stays like this?
  7. Yeah, I love drama! Idk who I'll try out for, but not Scout. I don't look like a believable seven year old. I'll do Mayella Ewell. She's complex and dramatic. She could be interesting.

    That's cool that you're doing The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. It's a good show. And yeah, Father Christmas is a bit... unexpected. But hey, who doesn't love Christmas?

    I heard of The House on Mango Street! We had to read a few excerpts from it. I never read the full book, but it's on my read list. And I love your book suggestions! I swear that I'll read a bunch of them this winter, since that's when I have free time.

    My creative writing class is not what I was expecting. This is what we've done so far: We wrote our favorite song lyrics on construction paper, and we cut out words from a magazine to make a poem. When will we ACTUALLY do creative writing? The magazine poem thing I guess is writing, since it is a poem, but the song lyric thing? What has that got to do with writing?

    Agh! WHY does my computer do this?? (It has lost and/not processed my message twice!!!) Anyway:

    The play sounds really fun and interesting! You're interested in drama, right? Are you going to try out for it? Then who?

    I'm doing a play with a homeschooling drama group-- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Guess who I am? FATHER CHRISTMAS. It was, um, shall I say... unexpected. We don't have try-outs, the director just chooses who's who from past experience with everybody, what would be a challenge or what they're good at, something like that.

    My current creative writing assignment is to write a couple vignettes based off The House on Mango Street (read it, it's amazing!) It's a semi-fictionalized auto-biography by Sandra Cisneros, growing up in Chicago in a poor Hispanic neighborhood. It's a very simple, not very grammatical, very little punctuation style-story.. but it totally works. If you haven't read it, you should.

    Am I suggesting too many books? Hmm...

    Oh my goodness, I thought I wrote a longer message to you a week ago! I guess it didn't process... Sorry! Also, I hope your surgery went well!

    How's school? I just started today. I'm still homeschooling, though I though about not continuing this year. My mom is assigning tons of reading this year--and one of them is Great Expectations! I'll tell you what I think about it once I read it. Speaking of books, I DO recommend 'Mortal Engines' by Phillip Reeve. The first sentence is:

    "It was a dark, blustery afternoon in spring, and the city of London was chasing a small mining town across the dried-out bed of the old North Sea."

    Makes you blink and read it a couple times, doesn't it? I'm not very far, but I already love it! Plus, some of the names are awesome, like Thaddeus Valentine.

    Micronations are super cool, by the way. Thanks for telling me about them! There's a country I like a lot called San Marino that isn't a micronation, but it's only 24 sq. miles.

    Oh wow, good luck! I was traveling, so I'll respond with a longer message soon, but I DON'T like arriving on a plane to places late... *yawn*
