Might as well get back on topic...

Since I decided I'm going to use this blog as a NaNoWriMo moaning point I might as well post something relevant.

This time next week it'll be November the 1st, nano will have begun and I will most likely be stressing. I wish November didn't start on a weekday, most of the day will have gone before I get around to starting it ~ stupid work *grumble grumble* and I'm really not the fastest of typers

Currently, with less than a week to go, I keep thinking that I should change my idea. I have another plot bunny jumping and he's a lot more eager with a lot more plot behind him, the snag being that one character (and a couple of minor ones) in there are 'borrowed' from fandom and therefore defeating the point of 'doing nanowrimo properly this year'

Guess I should stick with my original idea, it's good enough to write 50k about...I hope

I've come to the conclusion that I go through a lot of them, but only in the creativity sense.

I like to be creative, I also seem to like to have a go at everything, which means I'm not very good at anything inparticular. Another note worthy point, my phases seem to occur at the worst times. For example, NaNoWriMo is next month, so in theory I should be using this month to get my ideas sorted and work out a rough chapter plan (I work better with a general guide/breakdown) ~ instead I've decided to have another go at making some synthetic dreadfalls *sigh*

I'll be kicking myself next month inbetween pullling my hair out (it'll be ok, I'll have some not very good falls to put in ^_^)  ~ why do I have a very uncooprative attention span?

Somehow I don't think I'll ever change :)

Rob Zombie

Way, way back, when I was one of about five 'alternative' people back in high school before it was cool and the emo's came along. I made a list. This list contained bands that I just had to see before I died, more bands have been added and crossed off over the years but the original list remainded in my head. There were only five bands on this list

The Offspring
Marilyn Manson
Static - X
and Rob Zombie

Now I've seen all but one of them ~ Offspring's conspiracy tour back in 2001 being my first gig ~ more than once and I had pretty much given up hope of ever seeing the final one since he never leaves America

Until now!!!  Rob Zombie is coming to the UK and even better he's playing a venue 15 minutes walk from my flat! and I've got tickets - after a panic of the internet telling me there was only one left - I wanted four - northern presistence won in the end though, I'm guessing more got released, either way I'm there! well in February I am

12 years I've been waiting for this ~ I'm actually shaking with excitement, I'm also going to copy this post over to LJ since I have to tell everyone, everywhere how excited I am XD

and so it begins...

I appear to have created a blog ~ I have no idea why but I'll roll with it. I kind of have the feeling that I can update this with random, randomness as opposed to LJ which I kinda feel like I have to fill with acutal content and hey, it might come in useful when I attempt NaNoWriMo next month (if it's still happening that is *mental note ~ look into it*)

The fact that the last three bands I listened to (as in the last three songs) were Grendel, Megadeth and MaNga, goes to show that I must be in a very indecisive mood, that might explain the creation of this

Now to find out how to work this thing....
