It's that time of year! National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner.  I just signed up...and you should too.   

J.K. Rowling, I apologize

This fall I have been trying to read a book every two weeks.  Early on in this endeavor, I decided to start reading the Harry Potter books.  I know, I'm a little late.  I also decided to read Twilight--worst idea EVER.  When Twilight first came out, I remember hearing people say that Stephanie Meyer was going to be the next J.K. Rowling.  I would like to state that these people were crazy, insane, and showed a lack of discernment that is frankly, frightening.  Rowling can WRITE.  She is very good at crafting her incredible imagination into phrases with nuances that I was impressed with.  Meyer...can't.  I am also quite certain that Meyer's editor should be ashamed of his or herself.  Bad...just bad. So, Ms. Rowling, I apologize for all the idiots out there who fouled your good name.

I know I haven't written in forever, and I should warn you that my posts will fluctuate from few and far between to daily posts.  I don't have any of my own things ready to post yet, but I thought I would share some of my influences and things that I think are clever.  I just love the writing and creativity in these videos and I hope you will too.

This video is from the What You Ought to Know Site.  It talks about irony and how people misuse the word.  The other videos that these guys put out are worth watching as well and range from the best bicycle helmets to what women want.  I love the banter in the video and I hope you will too.

This video is how Lord of the Rings should have ended from the How it Should Have Ended website which is one of my favorites--I think it's hilarious.  I love checking to see if any movies I've seen have been revamped on this site.  The Twilight one is also worth checking out.

Well that's all for now.

After much deliberation, I have decided to make a blog; but not just any blog.  This one is special.  I am going to write about whatever, whenever and I will post some original works on here to get feedback or to just put it out there.  Although I sing while I make people coffee, I also love reading and writing.  This will be my anonymous forum.  I hope you like it, because I am super excited:)
