Life is crazy...

I'm back at work, the family has been sick for the last month and life is just CRAZY!!! 

I've just started to transfer my reviews from HPFF, but realised I haven't transferred over all my stories yet - or chapters. I just started writing fanfiction again for a SAYS reunion exchange fic...I have NO IDEA where that's heading. And there isn't enough coffee or time to get through all that needs to be done. I haven't baby spammed in a while for my Slytherin's so that will be next. 

If someone could Accio a few more hours into my days,  that would be awesome.

Oh...I've been binge watching some TV shows on Netflix. Anyone else watched The Rain or Salvation?

Philosopher's Stone & Cosplay

Last post for 2017. I hope this last year has been good to everyone.

Ahhh...I'm guessing I was supposed to update last year?? It was left here too, ready for me to continue - well played, Blog, well played!

I'm re-reading the books and there is so much that I miss about the books that the movies left out. Like in the Mirror of Erised, Harry sees his whole family, not just his Mum and Dad. And when Snape refs the second Quidditch game against Hufflepuff and Ron fights Draco in the stands and Neville joins in and takes on Crabb and Goyle. It was Seamus that says: "Nearly Headless? How can you be nearly headless?" during the feast, Neville was with Harry, Ron, and Hermione when they discovered Fluffy, it was Harry that said: "I wasn't looking at its feet, I was too busy with its heads.", that Ron actually has more lines in the book - and Peeves!!! It just makes me wish they did a re-make of the movies but make them stick to the books.

Ok, so, I'm also booked for an HP event night on June 2 with ladies from my work. I'm getting costume ideas, but want to break away from the usual. I saw this AWESOME Narcissa Malfoy coat on Etzy, but it was over $400aud to buy  Any ideas??

Happy Christmas

Well, I failed Nano again  So that means I am on par with every other year!!

Life simply got me with having a new baby with a toddler at home. I have been binge watching Netflix though while I nurse Jakob. I have caught up to date with Suits, and O.M.G! I WANT TO BE DONNA!!!

I think her character is simply awesome. It's not just her quirky lines, but there is so much more to Donna than meets the eye. Just when you think you have her sussed, she surprises you. Apart from that, writing has been at a minimum as I prepare for Christmas. I swear, I need to spoil my kids less. They have everything. It makes my shopping life hell. I did a lot of guessing and spending this year, so fingers crossed, I have happy kids for Christmas. I may not get a chance to get back till after Christmas, so I wish you all a safe holiday, regardless of what you celebrate or don't celebrate. Just make sure you all stay happy and safe xoxo

Stalled, Christmas, Birthdays and more...

Ok, so - I have written 1,948 words. Yes, I am WAY behind  It's OK, I will catch up. But, has anyone noticed that Christmas is coming up?? I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! Yes, I have been Christmas shopping and not writing. To be fair though, I have 5 babies to shop for. Even though my eldest is 14 and into Anime and Pokemon, I'm still looking at HP stuff to buy. Which also reminds me. A friend's son is turning 11 this year, so he is getting a HP birthday. I'm going to crochet something small up for him and post it from "Mrs Weasley"   The last few days I've spent moving my sites to a new hosting server that is more economical and that reminded me to update here.  Here are a few lines from what I have written though

Get ready. Get Set. And.........

So, I lied  in 2007, I wrote New Beginnings (MA) and wrote 33,560 words. This is the most I have written, not the 28,297 from the year before. I figured this out as I updated the NaNoWriMo site of my previous attempts and word counts. I'm missing documents from 2009 - 2010 or I may not have labelled them as "nano" and can't remember what they were 

In any case, as I type this, there are 52 minutes to go till NaNo starts here in Sydney, Australia. I decided to continue writing my original piece. I've no real idea where to start - I just plan on writing. I added my word count widget to my profile picture, so this will show my progress. Good luck for those doing NaNoWriMo 2017

NaNoWriMo 2017

The countdown to NaNoWriMo is on again. I participate EVERY year and I fail every year. I expect no different this year. Why do I do it? Because I've been working on my original fiction since 2009 and have yet to complete my first draft. It's a historical fiction based on a true timeline of events in Australia. As such, its also dealing with real towns and the longer I fail at writing, the more "life" goes on and towns change. But, I have spent over $2000 of my own money in research for this, so I can never give up - nor do I want to. Life has also played a massive part in the "no writing" aspect. I work full time and have just recently had baby #5. Motherhood kinda has to be a priority  

I came close to finishing NaNo once - my first year in 2006, with Draco and Ginny Pudding (MA), it sits at 28,297 words and I have yet to move all of it here to HPFT. The title was inspired by the HPFF Cliche Cafe, part of the NaNo fun on the forums of the time. It's the most I have written for NaNo - My least being 450 words last year 

Hopefully this year I will succeed, I just have no idea if I'll try and write my OF, start another, or write FF. Below in an excerpt from my original fiction - A first ever peek. I've never posted it publicly before. I have 3 more days to decide...I'll keep you updated.
