Why Becoming An Author Was the Best Decision of My Life...

Why hello. So I haven't been here in a while. But I have been working super hard since I returned from California at the end of September. First and probably foremost, NaNoWriMo starts in like 3 days and I am freaking out. If you don't know what that is, it is National Novel Writing Month. It's basically a challenge to write a novel or 50,000 words in 30 days. You can go to nanowrimo.org if you want to check out the rules and sign up yourself. I have been desperately trying to get my outline completed before the first day of November, and I think this is going to be the greatest November of all time. I am determined. And I will keep you updated as I go along.

I have also decided that I am going to apply to the Columbia Publishing Course at Columbia University. The application opens in mid-November and is due in March. If you don't know about the course it is an intensive 6-week graduate program that focuses on book and magazine publishing while introducing you to the industry's top executives. It's basically like a 6-week long job interview with training. I don't know too much about the application process just yet because it isn't open yet, but I will be keeping you updated as I know more. It seems like a long time from now, but I am so excited about it.

Lastly, I wanted to tell you I gave up on the YouTube videos for now. I didn't realize how time consuming video editing is, and the videos just weren't the quality I wanted. I think I need a better camera. So, anyway, I have taken one of my videos and adapted it for you to view here. Enjoy!
