Gasp! Is It True? Could It Be?

Christian has grown a bit since my last post,
and even this photo is old.
Yes. You are looking at a post. A brand new post.

If you're a follower, odds are when this post showed up on your Blogger Dashboard you stared at it for a minute trying to make The House on the Rock ring a bell. It has, after all, been four months since that name has shown its face in your Reading List.

I'm a sorry excuse for a blogger. This is, what, the fourth or fifth time I've posted after a long absence?

At least I can say that I've fulfilled (most of) what I said in my last post. I said I was going to manage my time better to increase my productivity, and I daresay I have. Since my last post, I've read the Bible cover-to-cover in eighty-nine days, finished the first level of Latin, completed my highschool biology course in nine and half weeks and begun chemistry, scored a nice grade under a tough judge in a piano festival, entertained my baby brother countless times while my mom was on the phone or cooking dinner, and kept in touch with long-time friends.

Unfortunately, with all that busyness some things had to be neglected, and blogging was one of them. I need to take a breather now, however, especially seeing as I've caught a cold, which is a perfect excuse to spend more time blogging. I've already tweaked the layout a bit, and that new header is a very simplified representation of Portland Headlight I made in Paint.

Another area that's received far too little attention is reading and writing, which is excellent timing with Script Frenzy starting tomorrow! NaNoWriMo's sister event, "Screnzy" is a challenge to write 100 pages of script in the thirty days of April. It can be any sort of script--screenplay, stage play, TV or radio script, graphic novel, you name it. This is my third year, hopefully my third win, and also my third time adapting.

So tell me, are you doing Script Frenzy? Why or why not? If so, what are you writing?
And is the blog just too busy?


  1. I'm totally doing Script Frenzy! I do NaNo, but this is my first Screnzy.

    I'm writing about an incompetent supervillain called Victor who wants to find the child destined to become the greatest supervillain ever. To that end, he adopts an entire orphanage of children and takes them to his evil lair to raise them in secret. This is gonna be fun. XD

  2. Hey, you did write another post other than a test post! Good for you!
    Of course, you know I'm doing Screnzy and what I'm writing about: "sad people find their trash archived", remember?
    I like the blog. But then, mine is probably just as busy. Your little brother is cute.
    Okay, I really am going to bed now.

  3. ZNZ, thanks for the follow!
    An incompetent supervillain named Victor--I like it!

    I love your logline, Mercy. XD I like your blog, and I don't think it's too busy, so then mine must be okay too. *snods*

  4. Oh, and ZNZ, what's your NaNo/Screnzy username?

  5. Aww, he is so adorable. Now I want one XD

    It's nice to see you back! :P Not that I was a huge follower before you left but *shrug* I am now evidently.

    And congrats on finishing the bible! Go you!

  6. Hey Faith! It's good to have you here! Hehehe, they sure are cute. But also lots of work. But I'm sure you know that. :P

  7. Yay!! You're back!!! It's really good to see you post. :)

  8. It's good to be back! And it's lovely to have such loyal followers. =D


A blog without comments is a lonely place.
