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.
(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of NaNoWriMo, I haven’t been able to read anything because I lack the focus and the time I usually read books have been replaced by my WIP novel.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.
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.)
