as yet unknown

(I was going to change the title after i'd written this but I think i'll leave it. =])

So in explanation of my last post: at the time I was going through the torture that we call exams. And am still going through it. November 13th I had my legal studies exam, which honestly is the only one i care about because it was the only exam that actually counts. It's a 3/4 subject at year 12 level, so it was quite important. I won't go into the complexities of the Australian (well, Victorian) Schooling System if you aren't Australian because then your mind will probably explode. Speaking of people's heads exploding, I've gotten myself a couple of extra followers recently *waves*.

I've come to the conclusion that facebook is a great deal more stalkerish than twitter, and somehow i have started to use it heaps recently. I did not want this to happen. I'd finally managed to break my Myspace addiction (i barely ever go on it now) because i decided that Youtube and Twitter were enough, but apparenly my mind needs to be addicted to more than two sites at one time. Yay me?

Nano is going ok, I have about 20,000 words which is great! I need to get to thirty thousand soon though or I will be incredibly behind. And then I get to write another 20,000 words!! This really is hard. Is anyone else doing Nanowrimo?? I want to know if anyone has actually found it easy. I've reached a point in my novel where i'm completly out of my comfort zone and have to actually be creative. Oh dear.

Eh? im australian and even i didnt understand your schooling :\
And were all supposed to have a standardised system :\
then again theres a whole lot of not much between Vic and Perth...

What the idea behind this nanowrimo thing?
Still havent quite got the gist :\

Given that you write well and love literature, I thought it would be almost a given that the Lit exam would be one of the good ones ;)

Nanowrimo is short for national novel writing month... in the month of november there is a national challenge put out to write a 50 000 word novel in 30 days.

Also, i'm from QLD, and it sounds quite different to here too... perhaps we're not as standardised as they would have us believe...?
