candy dots || panicking

Thursday, April 23, 2015


Long time no post! Time has simply gotten away from me.. :P Okay, I'll do better in May, I have an excuse, I'm writing a novella, right? ;) So far....ready for it? I've written 27.268 words! So close to my goal of 30,000. Camp NaNo ends in one week, so, yeah, I'm not panicking..noooo..

Okay, I'm panicking.

Just a little. lol. It may not seem a lot to some of you awesome people who write over 50,000 word novels-but it feels great to me! ;) Next step?....editing.
Yeah..from what I've heard-it's a no likey. But, we'll see, for some reason I feel really great about getting things done and watching it turn into something great. 
Please like editing, please. *crosses fingers*

I've been reading Stepping Heavenward-a really great book! Oh yeah, and I got this new paper bead roller...and have been going crazy..it's a little addicting. lol. You'll probably see a post on that soon. :) Seriously, they are SO fun to make. I've always liked making things like that. *sigh* I get a little stuck into it. Don't believe me? I made 130 beads in one day. Yeah. Believe me now?

I also made candy dots...something I've always wanted to try. Watermelon kool-aid and lemon. They tasted super, I just had a little trouble piping out the last ones. They tasted really great though!

Well, I simply must to now. I probably should write some more...back to it! Ta ta, all!

    1. Yeah! I really love it. It's the second time I've read it. :) They tasted really good, but they do take a while. It was fun for a one time thing though. :) Thanks! lol. I took it through a window. ;)

  2. Stepping Heavenward is a good book. I started reading it when I was ten and found it a bit over my head. However when I came back to it several years later it was much more on my level and greatly encouraged me. Have fun finishing it!

  4. I like the picture of the bird. And... you're so cute. ;) You're doing great on your novella! I probably wouldn't be doing that well. :/ I like editing, and if you do it enough, you probably will too. It feels so good to fix your mistakes and get rid of needless words, etc.! :D Wow.... 130 beads?! That is a LOT! Yes, you've got to post on that. I'm sure they're beautiful. :) Those candy dots look good!
    Fun post!
    Love,

    1. Thanks! lol. I took it through a window. ;) aww, thanks! haha, I'm not doing that great today...the words just don't want to be written. So I took a break.. :) Yeah, I think I will-because I like perfecting things..my motto is "Goin' for better." lol. Yeahhh, they are super fun to make though! I made a map pendant today-it turned out really cute. Thanks! I'll be sure to do a post on those beads. :D

    1. Yep! You only need powdered sugar and egg whites. Along with a favoring. :) They were super fun for a one time thing-though they did take a while. :D aw, thanks! I took it on Easter..lol..finally got it on the blog. :)

  6. Those candy dots are so cute! And ah, editing. Let me tell you that editing can be the worst job in the world, but it's satisfying once it is done. There's one series that I have been writing for about five years now, and let me just say that the first installment in the series is horrible. In fact, I have to rewrite and edit it for the third time. But we can all go and endure this, all right? ^.^

  7. Hi Sarah Margaret!

    I just came across your blog the other day, and I'm loving it already! You're such a sweet, genuine person, and I just wanted to tell you I think what you do here is awesome! Keep up the good work! :-D

    How exciting about your novella! I really respect people who work with deadlines....I myself am absolutely terrible at getting things finished, but I'm working on that. Haha, I hope it turns out that you like editing. It's really a lot of fun, I think. :-P

    Wow, those candy dots look super good!

    Blessings,
    ~Emma

    1. Hey Emma! Oh, I'm so glad your enjoying it. :) If I could ask-I was wondering how you found my blog. It's always fun to find out. ;) Your so sweet! I'll be sure to check your blog out. :)

      I knoww! ugh, today has been a bad day-those words will just not get on the page! lol..It's going pretty well though, almost to 30,000..I should finish camp a little early. :D Do you write? I think I might like editing-we'll see. ;) I'm excited to get started! :D

      Thanks! They were super fun to make-and seriously, everyone has the supplies in their kitchen...powdered sugar, flavoring and egg whites. :D

    2. Hmm....I'm trying to remember how I came across your blog! I think I was looking at someone else's profile, and happened to see your blog on the list and click on it. Why, thanks! I'd be pleased if you did. :-)

      Oh yes, I write. :-) It's my greatest passion, and my dream is to be a published author someday. Editing is super fun, in my opinion, but most people say they hate it-- anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

    3. oh, that's neat! :) I was going to follow, but I'm having some problems with my blogger account and it won't log out of my sisters account on this computer! :P So I'll have to do it on the other one as soon as I can. ;) That's why I'm using the 'Name/Url,' on here. ;)

      Oh, I hope to be published someday...oh good, I'm glad there is someone out there who likes it! I'm really excited to get started, (that's a good sign, right?) but I should wait a little before I start, so I'm fresh... ;) Thanks!

    1. I actually just finished it with 30,903 words...I have mixed feelings about it. I'm glad to have finished and met my goal, but sad that is it over. I still have lots of editing to do yet, so I'm not completely finished. :D Well...you can read a preview here: http://trustinginthelorddaybyday.blogspot.com/2015/03/camp-nano.html
      I'll probably be doing a post on it some time soon...it's extremely hard to answer that question for my story is about a number of things. lol.

  10. Great post Sarah! Those candy dots look amazing! My 5-year-old brother was sitting right here and he said, " Look! Those are the candy from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory! "
