Won't be here, bravo yankee echo

Okay, just reminding everyone I won't be posting for a bit! While I'm at it. . .

I have asthma and am allergic to a tree and weed native to my state. I am slightly allergic to cats although I <3 them!!
I'm doing script frenzy and can't decide on which script.

Alright, if you help me pick which idea I might give you a prize. :)
Idea one: Human and Doll sci-fi - TV script
Idea two: NCIS, Gibbs dies Ari comes BaCk!!! Oooooooohhhhhhh. - TV script
Idea three: High action-packed new series, romance, adventure, awesome -TV spec (?) script

If you help me with this script then I will make you a book cover of your choice on Gimp. :) I love playing on GIMP. Hehehhehe.

Alright, it's time for school. Unfortunatly I have ballet tonight, and I also have to pack along having to go get some shorts because I'm going to SC baby! Yes I am wearing an SC shirt right now. :)

Bravo Yankee Echo (bye in phonetics),
P.S. This is a pic that I made using GIMP. Like it? It's for my RP.

Spring Break, Hoorah!

I will not be here from April, 1 through April, 4 because I will be in South Carolina. :) I may post a tiny update, but there will be no huge posts or a newsletter.

Okay, main post. I'm on the sims 2 site! I'm AgentAnna48. :) So you can find me on there! LOL. I don't have much to say besides that and oh something else! I went to the allergist to get tested for allergies and asthma. I have mild asthma and an allergy to a tree native to my state. So I have an inhaler and I feel like a complete dork when I use it. I originally tried my mom's inhaler to see if it worked, it did so that's why I went to the allergist. Her inhaler was a disk and I didn't feel like an idiot using it. LOL. Really weird right?
Tomorrow I have an oral report in Spanish and I'm freaking out. Alright here it is from memorization. . .
Hola. Mi padre es el esposo de mi madre. Es artistico y simpatico. Mi abuela es la madre de mi madre. Es mu paciente y trabajadora. Kate, mi prima es grande y horrible. Es la hija de mi tio Bob. Tambien, Bob es grande.

Darn cousins.

I'm a bit miffed right now because my cousin posted a picture of me when we were younger on a site that I am *luckily* not on. Oh, and my LITTLE cousin who is twelve, I'm thirteen, she looks like a sixteen year old and a girl in my science class named Robin. *sigh* Cousins, los primos.

Sorry for the delay!

I'm so sorry for the delay, but the internet was down at my house and the only place that I could get on the internet (with my Ipod, & Nook, my computer isn't portable) was at Barnes and Nobles. I just got on for real today (Friday). I'm sorry, but I have not been able to put together Plot Bunnies. :( Sorry!!
ALSO! I will be going on vaca (squee!) on Friday/Saturday (we're not to sure yet and that will; be  April 2 or 1). I'm going to South Carolina with my mom to go visit mis abuelos (my grandparents). I'm not sure how long I'll be there but I MIGHT not be able to put Plot Bunnies out that week which is probably April 9. I might have it out on that Monday, but I'm not sure. Basically I won't be here for a while. :(
I'll try and see you soon (or at least talk to you all via the internet, lol).
Love ya'll (as they say down south),

HI! Here's a lot of text for you!

Sorry I haven't posted much, I'm a wee bit busy. :) But I'm back! Here I am!


We’re almost at issue fifteen! *dances around desk*  But we can’t reach issue fifteen without people helping out. We still need people to help out by writing articles and tips.
Here are some positions that need to be filled:
Writing tips
Best five books, movies, TV shows, and captions of the week

The two people that sign up will of course get credit.

This is the hardest part about writing. Not outlines, not characters, not even starting. Not a chance. Easily the hardest part of writing is finding time to put pen to paper. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Look at your schedule. Are there any places where you aren’t busy? Try to fill these times with writing.
Write during car rides. This is such an underused time. You’re just sitting in the car, listening to your ipod or playing video games when you could be writing. Bring along a notebook and start to write out your first draft. This also applies to waiting in a doctor or dentist’s office.
Find time to write every day. Pick a half hour when you’re never doing anything- say 7:00 to 7:30. You shut off your Internet and write for that half hour. Eventually, it will become a habit and you will be doing a little bit of writing every day.
Write With Friends. Having a little motivation never hurt anyone, did it? Plus, you can have Word Wars and cultivate a social life at the same time. It’s a win-win, right? Well, maybe not if you lose the Word War…
I know firsthand how challenging finding time to write is with school, afterschool activities, sports, RPing, and procrastinating on the Internet. But these tips work for me, and I hope they work for you.

1) Write whenever you can and use Kikiann’s article to help you.
2) You read this tip, now go write 300 words. Muhahahaha!
3) Keep your desk, or writing area tidy so you won’t have to clean it up when you don’t want to write.
4) Have you ever played Sims? If so then upload your story!! J
5) Surround your writing space with clean air. Or you can spray a bit of your favorite air freshener here and there. Mmmmmmmmhhhhhh apples and cinnamon!
6) Try to outline your novel even if you don’t or have never tried outlining. You may find that it helps you write better.
7) Don’t just sit there at your computer surfing the web. GO WRITE!

1) Write about the life of a poker chip.
2) The sun shone through the window and . . .
3) One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi. . .
4) He had just drooled on my Spanish textbook while making kissy faces at Hannah. I have to burn the textbook. . .
5) He was almost killed. . .
6) Write about gnomes.
7) Write about turtles.

1) The miraculous journey of Edward Tulane ((book))
2) NCIS - Cover Story ((TV show))
3) The Adjustment Bureau ((Movie))
4) Knight and Day ((Movie))
5) Iz forgots da moneys http://icanhascheezburger.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/a28f332e-f09d-45dc-920f-ed5c56110d68.jpg ((caption))

Did you like that issue?  Well here is an excerpt from my novel (one of the many). Enjoy.

    The smoky autumn breeze made the branches of the trees out side of our dorm tapped against our window making us paranoid. We had been like that ever since Dalia died.
    "It's the two month anniversary of Dee's death." One of my best friends, Ash stated as she clean out her binder for school which hadn't started yet, but it started in less than a week.
    "Don't remind me." I ran my pale fingers through my long, messy brown hair, then I shuffled to our closet to pick out some pajamas.
    “You cold?” I asked. I had stopped walking to check to see is Ash was okay. She was sitting on her bed huddled in her black skull adorned blanket that she Dalia had bought her a month before she died.
    “No. . . I’m fine.” She got up and followed me to the closet still wrapped up in her blanket. That’s when Charlotte stirred in her bed and looked down at us in the corner. Her beautiful, naturally straight blonde hair was in a disarray. It was pretty funny to see her with bed head.
    “Hola sleepy head!” I giggled waving up at her.
    “What’s today?” She grumbled, setting her head back down on her down pillow.
    “September second, we still have a week until school starts.” I slid the mirror closet door open and slid the hangers across the bar that held all of my clothes. There were four racks, one for me, another for Ash, Charlotte, and the last one, which was empty, was for Dalia who was six feet under.
    “It’s Dalia’s two month anniversary of her death.” Charlotte sat up straight, her squinty eyes had become large, round saucers.
    “Do you guys have little calendars in your heads or what?!” I screeched, throwing up my hands. Was I supposed to remember her death? I didn’t want to remember that.

Another day another essay.

I got my essay back yesterday that  wrote on Charlie Chaplin and I got a seventy five (75%).  You heard me right. A writer like myself should never ever get a grade like that in English for an essay. Hey, I got a bad grade and I just had a bad dream about my enemy (HC not mentioning names here) and my friend is getting into the Visions program (which is like intensified English and looks good on your college app). I'm very depressed right now. :(

My mum said that when she looked up Visions on the school website, it looked just like intensified English (IE) except for the fact that in Visions you get more assignments and junk.

IE: 40 Problems
Visions: 150 problems

Like that up there ^^ I don't want to get in that class now! I've also heard that the teacher is a bastard (he is a old guy) like my teacher that I have now (who is a complete bitch). When I asked if we could start a school newspaper (her, me, and other students) she said that it was too much work for a teacher and she already had her plate full. Grrrrrrr. . .

Sorry 'bout the rant but on the lighter side, I fell in love with the 'Pretty Little Liars' shows because of Troian Bellisario (who plays McGee's sister on NCIS and is in real life Sean Murray's step sister). I'm going to read the books this summer because I have to read two other books before I read anything else.  DARN YOU ACCELERATED READER!!!!! Whoever came up with AR tests is the stupid for suggesting that. I want to read to enjoy, not take a test on it.

Ouch, and roleplayings

Okay, so I just got back from the eye doctor and I'm getting new glasses! Squee! But okay, so my braces are still killing me and my eyes are all dry because of one of the routine tests that they so yeah, I'm in pain. :( Here's my message about my new RP that will not fail!!
Hello everyone. I'm just here to make a quick announcement about my new role-play that I will be creating soon. It's going to be awesome, but before I actually create the site, I would like your opinion.
The RP is about this private school for middle school, high school, and college students. Here are a few questions that I need answered.
1} Should I name the site 'Seven Halls'? Or do you have a better name?
2} Would you join?
3} What color scheme do you think would be best? Just tell me some good colors for a private school on an ISLAND!
4} The halls would be like art, english, science, etc and they would be named such as Picasso Hall, Shakespeare Hall, Franklin Hall, etc. What do you think of that?

5} Would you like to add anything else?

If you send this back to me within twenty four hours of receiving this you might get a spot on the moderating board!! You may post a comment down there or email me at annaswanson48@gmail.com

Plot Bunnies 11, and my blabbering

Hola! It’s Anna here and I have two announcements.
1) I probably won’t have the same columns each week.
2) I will have articles in here written by other nano members! If you would like to write and article or two for the newsletter then PM about it.
Written by: Kikiann11
Finding a writing space is extremely important any time you write. It not only provides you with a comfortable, private space to write, but it also gets you into a writing mindset. A writing space without distractions can also increase productivity and limit procrastination. I’ve found that I can get a lot more work done when I’m in my writing space. Here are some basic criteria:
Privacy. I find I can’t write with people staring at me all the time. Find an area where you are a bit out of the way or that people don’t normally go. I find that working in the corner of a room is far easier than working in the middle of it. If you have to use a desktop computer, try using room dividers or a “Keep Out” sign to make sure you aren’t interrupted.
Comfortable Temperature. If you’re not comfortable, you won’t get any writing done! If you’re allowed, adjust the temperature of the room so it is comfortable to you. This is different for everyone; I prefer a warm room while others prefer a cold one. If, like me, you aren’t able to do that, keep a blanket (Snuggies actually work well for writing) or a small fan by your writing space, depending on your preference.
Adequate Seating. Even if you are in a super private spot and it’s exactly the right temperature, you won’t be able to write if your seat is uncomfortable. Whether it is a cushion on the floor or a winged armchair, you should be comfortable in your seat. You should also have room for your laptop, NEO, notebook, or whatever else you write with.
Eliminate Distractions. This is the most important one. In fact, any space can be a writing space if you can eliminate distractions. This means disconnecting the Internet, leaving your phone far away, and telling family members to leave you alone. This provides a quiet, distraction free place to write.
I hope these tips were helpful and easy to follow. Have fun finding your writing space!
1) Write Twilight YOUR WAY!
2) Do you know how to sabotage an iPod?
3) Listen to ‘Thriller’. Can you write a story about it?
4) Three young women sit in a dimly lit room and sulk in their sorrow
5) I was a dead man walking
6)Begotur. . .what kind of name is that?!
7) Grooveologer it’s the best class in school!??
1) Blow - Ke$ha
2) Hang On - Plumb
3) Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
4) Angels - Within Temptation
5) Till the World Ends - Britney Spears
6) Coin operated boy - Dresden Dolls

My Blabbering:I didn't get my word count goal for January and February, so if I get this word count goal then I'll buy myself three bags of peppermint patties. Mmmmmmhhhhh! Then in April I'm doing script frenzy, I'm doing an NCIS script where the main character Gibbs is killed by his enemy that supposedly died in season two. Then two new characters based on me and my friend Gina are added to the series but they've been at the agency for a while in my script will help save the day. I eventually hook up with Tony the cutest guy and we get married and live in this awesome glass house while McGee and Gina hook up leaving Ziva and Abby still single along with Jimmy and Ducky. I think Ducky will get married to someone eventually.

My Poetry Project. Woo woo.

I' really not excited at all about this poetry project that I have to do for English. I hate my English teacher and speaking in front of the class so that makes it even more terrifying for me and it also makes me hate the project more. I also hate poetry because it's too weird (I just don't like it, okay?). But I chose 'I felt a funeral in my brain' by Emily Dickinson.

I felt a funeral in my brain,
And mourners, to and fro,
Kept treading, treading, till it seemed
That sense was breaking through.
And when they all were seated,
A service like a drum
Kept beating, beating, till I thought
My mind was going numb
And then I heard them lift a box,
And creak across my soul
With those same boots of lead, again.
Then space began to toll
As all the heavens were a bell,
And being, but an ear,
And I and Silence some strange Race
Wrecked, solitary, here. 

Do you like her poem?
