Christmas time is here! Woohoo! Friday was my last day at school, for which I am more than grateful, and I'm finally on Christmas Break. Over the next few weeks I plan to write and finish my novel (we'll see how that comes out lol) as well as work on some things for Wayne Batson's Tribe Building Game. In the meantime however, there's some serious business to be taken care of.
Probably the most important part of the year--the lighting contest between my siblings. The idea is that each of my siblings (there's four of us) get the same amount and types of lights (except for my one brother Stephen...he gets the "special" lights) and we decorate our rooms. I personally prefer the technique of locking the door, setting the alarm, setting extra precautions (as in placing a close hanger on the lock and then setting it to my light switch, effectively keeping the door from unlocking), and then finally pushing the chair up to the door, and begin my work.
This year I crushed the competition, and I'll show you why. Or rather, you can look back up at the picture and SEE why.
I wrapped my lights in and out of my Tae-kwon-do trophies and then circled my headrest. The remaining lights from the trophies I strung across the room and to the furthest window. As you can probably see.
So, here's the list of randomness for the week--it's been far too long since my last random post.
1. I hung the lights
2. I finished reading Christopher Hopper's AWESOME book The Lion Vrie. [See my review on Stories for the King shortly]
3. I completed Part Two of my novel!
4. I made plans for the ACFW Conference!
The Brave is Found, being the second part of The Sword of Fire, was completed just the other day. And it is one awesome section. The entire 30,000 words is mainly battle, which to me is pretty sweet. And I hope a lot of you get the chance to read it someday.
Also, in reference to writing the ACFW Writer's Conference will be held in Indianapolis this year. I read this and literally shouted for joy, "YESSSSSSS!" I've been dying to go to a conference for a ridiculously long time. And finally I will be able to attend one. But this isn't just ANY conference....the ACFW ones are the BEST conferences for my genre. And so I am so excited :)
That's all for now. Just a big batch of randomness.
I'm looking forward to my Christmas post :) As well as some updates on my magazine story.
