'Sup 100 Pages?

That's right, I won Script Frenzy! I'm not even close to being done with my novel, so I'm going to write like hell today and tomorrow and see how long I can get it. One of my favourite characters just died, a twelve year old who was basically the most innocent, naive kid ever. Gahhh :( Needless to say, I don't really feel like writing anything right now... But I will press on, for Seth!

If you are reading this because you want to hear about all my writing (non-existent at the moment) you should probably leave and go read a different post :) This is my summary of last night, and by summary I mean every single tiny detail.
Okay, so my mom and I started off to Toronto at eight am. All was well. We went to Yorkdale, had lunch, shopped for a few hours.
At three we set off for the Sound Academy. When we got there at about 4:00 (traffic jams!) she went to line up and I went to meet up with some other Hustlers (ATL fanclub). We waited out there until 4:45 when they brought us in for M&G.
They told us some rules and then All Time Low walked in. I freaked out for a teensy second, and then the three girls I was with and I went up to Zack. Our convo went like this:
Me: Hi! I'm freaking out right now!
Zack: Why are you freaking out?
Me: I love you guys!
Zack: Aw!
Then he signed my CD case and took a picture with me and gave me a hug. Actually, they all did that, so I'm not going to mention it for the rest of the three.
Then we went up to Alex. We didn't really say anything except like "Hey, what's up?" Before he did all the sign-picture-hug thing.
Next we went over to Rian. Our conversation:
Me: You teeth are actually as white as they look in pictures!
Rian: What, did you think they wouldn't be? Did you think they were photoshopped?
Me: Well, yeah!
And then as we were leaving he was like, "Thanks for the compliment, I think!"
Then we went to Jack. Jack was hilarious, although we didn't really have a one on one conversation either. He kept making all these funny noises and he drew a smiley face on my CD cover.
Then we got into the concert. I was second row, but The Summer Set played their set and I was pretty much dying because I was really dehydrated, I was so freaked out. So security pulled me out and I skipped Hey Monday's set, mostly because I don't like them but also because I needed water. I went into the middle for Yellowcard, who were awesome, and All Time Low, who were hilarious and just plain amazing. I found out they're coming back for a Canadian tour in late summer/fall, which is freaking exciting!
All in all, it was the best day of my life :) Also, pictures!

Freak - The Downtown Fiction

I'm listening to The Downtown Fiction's new album right now, and it's freaking amazing! It's actually not out until the 26th but they put it up for streaming or whatever it's called--let's put it this way, it's on the interwebs. And I love it :)
Now, to the writing part...
Oh, wait, I forgot--I want to say that this is my 99th post, which isn't quite as cool as 100th but still. It's funny how my 100th with probably be about All Time Low.
Okay, now to the writing.
So it's day 23 of the Frenzy at 9:09 am. The forums have been down for the past two days or so. I'm at 87 pages, or 46, 692 words. I'm not showing any signs of slowing, eithe, which is exciting. Plus I read the first few pages (I know, I know) and they're not dreadful! How exciting :) I'm off to Starbucks now, and I'm pretty sure that I'm going to get a lot done today because a) Starbucks, and b) My older brother and I are pulling an all nighter tonight. He has his own reasons, but I'm doing it because if I want to sleep at all Sunday night, I'm going to have to be reeeeally tired.
Happy writing!

Thanks For Nothing - The Downtown Fiction

One thing before I get to the writing part of this post: HOLYSHIT 8 DAYS UNTIL I MEET ALL TIME LOW!!! Notice I didn't use the word "see" I used "meet".
Ladies and gentleman, this was deliberate.
Someone on the Hustler forums (ATL's fanclub. Not, um, the other sort of Hustler) offered to take me as her guest to the meet and greet before the show. So I am going to meet All Time Low. In person. They will be within hugging distance. They will be within poking distance!! Now, this girl who offered me her guest pass kind of restored my faith in the world... /creeperness.
Now, about that writing thing I supposedly do...
It's day 17 of Screnzy, at ten minutes to four in the afternoon. I am at 69 pages, or 36, 949 words. I'm a bit ahead of schedule, which is good, because there's no way in hell I'll be able to write the day of the concert. Or the night before, I'm assuming.
Because come on, how many times in my life am I going to meet ATL?
If I have any say in it, a lot.
But I digress.
I'm trying to get past 70 pages today, so I'm going to go do some more work :)

I Feel Like Dancin' - All Time Low

GJDFGK ALL TIME LOW RELEASED A NEW SINGLE!! *Breaths deeply as not to scare off followers* Sorry, had to let out my excitement somewhere.
Anyways! It is Day Five of Script Frenzy and I'm on page 29, which is 15, 838 words, so I'm averaging about six pages, or 3168 words, per day. I'm quite proud but I really just wanted to get a head start on my wordcount, as I have a looooot of stuff to do later on this month--Friday I have a PD day, but I'm going to the mall with my best friend and some other friends because it was her birthday last Sunday. Saturday I have a Reach for the Top competition (I'm on the school team). Then next weekend, I might be going down to the states to get a dress for the wedding, then next weekend is a) Easter and b) All Time Low concert!!
So I kind of want to get really far ahead while I have time.
Also, because I can't really drink coffee after ten in the morning on weekdays because I have school the next day and I won't sleep, I've been drinking so much grape pop... it's weird. But also sort of a coffee substitute. And delicious :)

For You and Your Denial - Yellowcard

I'm listening to so much Yellowcard lately, it's mad. My favourite song by them is either the one in the title, Way Away, or Ocean Avenue. <3
So, April 2nd, 1:29pm, I am at 11 pages, 6,185 words and event number eleven on my plot outline.
This is bad.
Well, the page/wordcount is good. But I was supposed to write 1,000 words, about two pages, on each event, and I've only gotten one page out of each :P I think I'm going to randomly throw another subplot in there... just to make it longer :)
I am off to Starbucks soon, but before I leave, I must say that I just bought a fifteen dollar iTunes giftcard. For ever ten pages, I get a song. Also, I must point out that my computer recognizes Starbucks as a word.
