It’s New Year’s Eve… and all that shit…

Okay so I haven’t really blogged through December because I have been doing pantomime and for last 5 days I have practically lived at the theatre. Through December I performed twice a week and then on the 27th and 28th I got to ‘shadow’ a girl who was going up to play Cinderella so I would have to take her part. I also got to be a stage hand and that was really fun because it gave me a new perspective about what happens in the theatre and how it happens. It also shows you how much the backstage crew actually do and as a performer you learn to appreciate them and understand why they are yelling “GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY WAY!!!!” (It’s probably because they are moving a fireplace)… So that was cool and then on the 29th I went up to fill this role and I was shitting myself because I had only done one of the dances with the music but it went alright. There was this really hard dance that I do with this boy and I was almost crying because I was so scared that I was gonna slip coming out of one of the lifts. But I didn’t and I loved every minute of it. Now I only have 2 more shows left on Friday.

Right, so… CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! Another reason for not blogging… I was in Wales… That was… Interesting… Yeah so we were there with all my Dad’s family except for my cousin Richard who lives in Canada and was with his wife’s family. Anyway Christmas was awesome because I got……………………….. wait for it……………………………………………… A MACBOOK PRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH So that’s what I’m typing this on now!!!!!! It’s also my birthday present and probably part of next year’s christmas present but I DON’T CARE! I OWN A MACBOOK PRO!!!!!!! I also got some really cute bags, Chicago sheet music for piano, nail varnish, money and chocolate.

So what did everyone else get for Christmas (Elly I know what you got and I’m jelly so shut your face -_-)

Next order of business… NEW YEARS!!!! What’s everyone up to tonight?????? I think I’m off to Elly’s and some other friends are going too and we are all going to be antisocial together…

Right so I think that’s everything… Oh no WAIT!!!!!! If I can work out how to use the movie maker on here then I am going to make the greatly overrated 2013 video and put it onto my YouTube channel. I will put the video on here too if I make it…

Goodbye

NaNoWriMo Update

Yeah so…

No.

I have not even started…

Well this is going spiffingly                      (good word, spiffingly)

I think I want to base it loosely on burlesque/vaudeville and set it in a different time period than the present. Either that or I will set it now and use older burlesque influences and have it like Moulin Rouge!

Oh my gawsh don’t you just love Baz Luhrmann!!!!

It’s just the way he mashes the old and new together… I just love it!!!

So I’m thinking maybe 1920’s but IDK!!!

I like the idea of having a strong female lead who starts off being quite nerdy until she joins a burlesque club and then becomes this amazingly strong independent person…

A little like the transformation Roxie Hart undergoes in Chicago…

I think I’m going to end up just mashing up Chicago, Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge and Burlesque into one book…

I’ll let you know how that goes…

Ha oh well!

I’ve started carrying around my notebook and I have written down some of my influences and I’ve just printed off a load of pictures that I like and I want them to influence my writing.

I can’t wait to design the cover… That’s all I want to do really… Design the front cover! I already have loads of ideas for that but none for the actual writing!

Anyway better go and do what all the other teenagers are probably doing right now… My homework that I was meant to do at the start of the half term!

Goodbye
