Writing:

This month, I've been busy preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo! It's my first time ever doing a NaNo event, and I'm very excited. For anyone wondering, my writing project is going to be a novella called Heaven Bleeds Fire. The summary is basically this:

  • After too long with Michael as Head Honcho Angel, Heaven gets restless and a revolt ensues led by Gabriel.
  • Safildor is a smol bisexual angel fighting for Gabriel, but he gets kidnapped by a band of demons.
  • The head demon is also smol and genderfluid and likes ham and marmalade sandwiches (don't ask ok)
  • It turns out they all hate Michael??
  • Reluctant cooperation ensues.

Here's a snippet of the outline I've been writing:


As you can see, I'm remaining quite sane.

And here's the cover I made for it:


But I'm not sure how much I like it, so it may not be the final one.

Watching:



The West Wing! It's a political drama about the senior staff of the White House and it's both super suspenseful and super funny. SAM IS SUCH A SMOL BEAN I WANT TO PROTECT HIM FROM EVERYTHING.

(I also watched In the Heart of the Sea after reading the book, but don't even get me started on it. I will rant for ten thousand years.)

Making:

Friends!!

(What it's possible for Ellie to make friends what?)

I joined a Les Mis rping squad at the very beginning of this month, and it's been super awesome! (If you have Tumblr and enjoy Les Mis go follow them all bc they're fab.)

Let's chat! What have you been doing this month? Any awesome TV shows or movies? Are you doing Camp NaNo (and would you like to be in a cabin with myself and Áine)? Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles. <3

Namarië,
Ellie

  4. Good like with Camp! Your story is intriguing :D. I joined in April and was thinking about joining this month, but I think I have a little too much on my hand for the month. But I'll definitely be in for November.

    1. Thank you! :)
      That was me in April! It's really hard for me to do April and November because those are the busiest months of the year for me in terms of schoolwork, so I'm very excited to be doing July!
