Sneakily blogging in biology

Yeah so I’m blogging in biology and I’m bored. So yeah…

NaNoWriMo isn’t going well. My first set back was when I got all my inspiration photos to stick in my book and then couldn’t print them off anywhere. Fuck.

Anyway I have a clear vision but I want to take my time with it and have decided to start the first draft and use NaNoWriMo as inspiration to kickstart my novel writing. The first chapter will be called…

CALM YOUR OVARIES!!!!

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

Things I want to do!

1. Take a gap year and travel (sounds cliché but I really want to go backpacking!)

2. Go to university

3. Live in London for a bit

4. Go to France and stay for a while

5. Write a script for a play

6. Flat share with Elly and/or Beth (let’s make risotto)

7. Read the Bible (so I can argue competently against the existence of God)

8. Get rid of the spider in the corner above my window

9. Find out who George is crushing on (by any chance the ‘fictional’ person you blogged about a while back???)

10. Become fluent in the French language

These are just a few of the things I want to do in my life. Some I would like to achieve in the near future, some are long-term goals!
