I Wrote Dangerously

For those who have been frequenting my blog would probably know what I do for fun. Which is write. Write nonsense, write out my fantasies, write out those romance that’s supposed to happen to me but did not. I write for a living. And I write for fun.

It didn’t sound fun at all, did it? But then again, I’m not a wizard or a magician. I have no talents of making a rabbit appearing from the folds of a hat and I also can’t work with potion or conjure spells and putΒ  nasty curses on people. I hate my lack of ability to do things efficiently, so that’s probably why I write a lot. It’s wishful writing, I suppose.

Writing has been a part of my life, and always will be, though I am not always productive all the time. November is always productive for me though my pitiful blog is sorely neglected, cuz there’s NaNoWriMo, where people all around the world goes on a crazy attempt to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in just 30 days. Crazy people who loves to write like me motivates each other and goes on word sprints or write ins to get our fingers dancing on the keyboard to churn out words from our brains.

That’s why I love November so much. Cuz I get a boost from all over the world, telling me that I am not silly or even wasting my time putting the ridiculous things from my head on the white sheets. November taught me to let go and just enjoy being just me.

Anyway, I’ve won the challenge and earned my yearly rights to boast. Hey, hey, bear with me, I said. LOL… I don’t camwhore, cuz people will probably puke after seeing my pic, so this will have to do! LOL… so bear with me for a while, okay? Let me hear the okay and drum rolls, please…

I broke my personal records this year…feel free to use the numbers to buy 4D or even toto. Just remember to give me a treat if you hit the jackpot, tho.

I wrote: 15,2340 words (that’s 300++ pages, 12pt in Times New Roman)

I drank: 56 cups of Lipton tea, 15 glasses of iced Milo in the middle of the night throughout Novermber 2009.

I ate: Tons of fattening, instant stuff that my late grandmother won’t even recognize as food.

I indulged in: 3Β  packs of dynamite choco-mint candies, a dozen of Chupa Chups orange and strawberry flavoured lollipops, 1 pack of monsters candy and half tub of chocolate ice cream.

I missed: A lot of soap operas shown on the telly.

I slept: 4-5 hours a day and dream about my devilishly handsome hero and nightmares about lusty sorceress who lusts after my hero.

Anyway, I get these as a recognition of my insane effort:

And because I am also part of the NaNoWriMo YWP, I also get extra badge to tell the world on how looney I can get…

Oh yeah, I get this too…

Yikes! A cert to confirm my lunacy!

And here, I’d like to thank everyone who had been supportive and be there for me throughout November, especially my kitty, Meow Meow for accompanying me throughout November as I embark on my dangerous writing adventure while the rest of my world snores away.

I would drop into a court curtsy if I could in honour of this historic entry, but I think I shall end this entry with a little quote from my novel in progress:

Within the dark shadows of my heart, the torch’s glow reveals your face. Within the dungeons of my soul, the corridors echoed with your laughter. Within the castle’s wall of my resolves, your tender caress sets them ablaze. Within the misty forest of my memories, your soft kisses summons my name. Within my daydreams of tomorrow, we sleep in each other’s arms. And within my wildest wishes, you claim me to be yours.

Cleffairy: My head is full of mush! I have no idea why you people think I’m a fierce and cranky person. LMAO!

P.S: One would have noticed that I am not using Windows Operating System if one see closely on the NaNoWriMo cert screenshot. Nope, you did not see wrongly. You’re right. I am not using Windows. I am using Ubuntu, Linux based operating system. It’s an open source operating system, which means, you don’t have to pay for the license to use it. I might write about Ubuntu when I feel like it one day.

    woah..i guess im the first one to comment!! well…u r really talented cleffairy! Judging by your posting, you’re really good in elgish and ..err.. is literacture the word?
    hmm… u seems high-tech too! I always wanted to explore all these open source stuffs but always don’t have the time or involved in some other activities. Anyway, Im glad I tried out google street today.

    Well, since the competition is over, you better eat somne healthy food and rest well! Time to rest your engine after a long drive..LOL

      LOL… ritey rite. You’re the first to comment. LOL…

      Ohh…. the open source thingie? Well…I got sick and tired of using Windows and getting my HD infected with Trojans and virus and not to mention that I am a bum when it comes to updating antivirus. So decided to use Linux instead.Ubuntu suits me the best cuz of it’s user friendly interface. That way, I not only won’t be tempted to play online games cuz there’s not much online games made to suit Linux platform, but I also dun have to worry about having virus infecting my HD… lol…

      LOL… yeah, the competition is over, but it’s been a habit… a nasty habit for me not to eat healthy stuff. Horrible me! 😦

    Hello, i am not surprised at all that you’ve won, to me you are just a “human writer” meaning you write with feelings of the likes of you and me,,, it is easy to get warmed up to your writing.

    and one thing for sure, i am honored to be called your friend and your bro,,,, truly happy for you,, go look for publisher now and get it promoted,,, seriously ,,,,,,you know i have read many of local writers,(all genres) almost most of them are dull, i am seriusly, plain dull, so may be you can break that taboo, cleff, go for it ya,,,

    • cleffairy says:

      Thanks, Eugene. Really appreciate it. LOL… *sigh* It’s really hard to get published in Malaysia… what’s more we have to go through a lot of censorship if you go thru agent. It’s not cheap, at least have to have RM5k in hand if you wanna publish a book in Malaysia. LOL…

      Maybe one day when I have enuff $$ on hand, I’ll publish all my junks… LOL…
