It's Saturday night!
Saturday, November 8, 2008
I spent whole day recuperating. Catching up on my sleep. And tried to write on my nanowrimo but no inspiration because I can't think of a horror scene to write because I can't imagine all the vivid details of the murder scene I want to write. My brain refuses to cooperate with me to zoom all the details.

I need to read on my story book called The Historian to get some inspiration. Very beautifully written and I have updated some recipe.

And I forgot to add that I'm now going crazy because I can't load the video at crunchyroll all day.
