Ok, I've gone and done something dumb. I know, it's a regular thing with me these days...
After several years of avoiding the challenge, I've signed up for NaNoWriMo and beer wasn't even involved. I know damn well I don't have the time to write daily, plus I've got a trip planned around the 11th and an Ultimate tournament at the end of the month. Plus, I still don't have a solid outline finished and the plot keeps shifting and changing in my head every 7.8 minutes.
However, I'm thinking if I survive the next 30 days, (all bets are on) I'll certainly have a
pile of shit pretty good
first draft and surely better writing habits. I'm really trying to kick the Don't-edit-as-you-go, habit and just WRITE
THE DAMN THING.
Anyway, I've been a pretty terrible blogger these past few months, I keep getting curve balls thrown at me but heck, that's life. However, I'm going to try and give regular updates during the next 30 days which may or may not include pictures. ;) For example, here is my before or Pre-NaNo picture, along with my writing buddy, Comet. (Her sister Galaxy was building a sand castle in the box when this picture was taken. ;)
For those of you not doing NaNo,
hold me, I hope you have a productive month and a fun and safe Halloween
(if you're celebrating). We like to celebrate Halloween (candy anyone?!). Unfortunately, Halloween isn't a big thing over here and most folks don't even go out
trick or treating. I know, it's sad. However, we are invited to a Halloween party Friday night
(my FIRST ever Halloween party!). My daughter is dressing up as a scary fairy, my
son as Mikey the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and I'm going to try and paint a sugar skull on my face and sport some wild purple hair. Scary for sure!
Anyway, having a blast Friday night is definitely on my list of things to do. In fact, it's the only thing on my list for Friday because I know what's coming the following day....I have an English class to teach. Oh and yeah...... it's also the start of Writing-My-Ass-Off-NaNoWRITING MONTH!
See you all for my next update!
Do you guys celebrate Halloween? What's your favorite costume and/or what's your costume this year? And are you crazy enough to do NaNo this year too?
