There’s good news and bad news. I’ll start with the bad since that’s what influenced this entire post in the first place.

THE BAD
(not really “bad” bad)

I apologize for the lack of posts on the blog.

I really wanted to have a bunch of posts ready and posted, but I hadn’t gotten around to actually writing them.

Why? NaNoWriMo has taken over my entire life. I did not write the first two days, so that set me back a bit. For the past week, I’ve been bent on catching up to the amount I’m suppose to have. Yesterday, I was so close, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to reach that goal. Hopefully, today I will catch up.

Because of NaNoWriMo, I haven’t been able to read anything because I lack the focus and the time I usually read books have been replaced by my WIP novel. :\ I’ve tried to read Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano, but it’s kind of slow and I am a bit annoyed by the main character, Morgan. (She’s too naive/sheltered for my taste.)

I’m hoping that when I do catch up to NaNoWriMo, I’ll be able to find time to read again.

THE GOOD

1. NEW BLOG HEADER, EVERYONE!

Yeah, the header is extremely simple, but hey, it’s super cute!

I really wanted to make an awesome banner with a narwhal (because y’know, I am having a narwhal loving phase. They are precious creatures! You can see the extent of my love on twitter where I’ve inflicted it onto people). I didn’t know what to do with the header in a way that wouldn’t make it too empty or busy. At the moment, what you see is what I could come up with. I really hope it isn’t too bare. If anybody have suggestions of what I can do to make it even better, feel free to tell me.

(I’m sure that when I get tired of that header, I may change it back to my previous one, but we shall see. :D)

Thanks to everybody who tweeted their response over on Twitter. You do not know how much it means to me that you love it as much as I do. (I need validation when it comes to anything graphic designing-related. ;D)

2. I’ve also rewrote some of “about me” page. Still pretty unsatisfied with it, but it’s a slow process to perfect it.

3. Also, if we talk on Twitter a lot and you want a personalized card, just tell me and I’ll make one and send it to you for the holidays! (‘Cause personalized cards are the best! And by personalized, I don’t mean I’ll cut construction paper and create images with it. I’m not artistic enough to do that. I’ll be using my printer and have witty/sentimental words about our friendship + an outline of an image that reminds me of you. It’ll look all fancy, but the content is far from it. ;D)

I’m sure there is more news I want to share with you all, but at the moment, my brain is too tired to remember. :D (Oh! I do have a lot of NaNoWriMo news, but I will post that on Sunday.)

  1. You’re rocking the NaNoWriMo or like will be as soon as you catch up so don’t worry about the lack of posts. Just look at me, I’m not even participating. Sigh.

    Aaand yes, the blog header is awesome. I love it. =D

    NaNoWriMo! I’m skipping out this year since I’m buried under a load of work. Definitely don’t feel pressured to post; we understand!

    AND NARWHALS! <3 <3 Digging the new banner!

  3. Very cute header! I think it’s perfect the way it is. There’s no need to make is busier.

    Yay NaNoWriMo! Go you!

    Christmas cards are so fun. :) What a cute idea!
