NaNoWriMo and s'mores...

I won't say I'm giving up yet, but my novel is slowing down significantly, and despite the motivation of a paperback version, I doubt I will make it to the finish line this year. There is just so much going on-school, plus all of my other projects. Writing is hard for me. Well, writing a novel is hard for me, even though I love the idea of it. Boring school writing, like summaries and analysises and research papers, is apparently easy for me, since I do well on them and my teachers always compliment my writing. There are much easier ways for me to get out some of creativity than writing a novel...such as my sewing and crafts and my journal. My journal, thanks to much inspiration online, has become a lovely thoughts and pictures type of scrapbook. It's a big improvement over what my journals used to be: plain, orderly lines that seem to repeat one another. It's exciting to see the change.

My trip to Joann's wasn't too productive, except for some robot and spaceship fabric for my little cousin's Christmas gifts. It was on clearance, then 50% off that. Over three yards for about $5 or less. I also got a few things for my "sewing inspiration notebook," but I'll have to finish getting everything this week at Hobby Lobby. Poor Hobby Lobby. I haven't been in there for probably two weeks now, because I wasn't doing any sewing, but now it's time to return. For now I'm off to church for a bonfire, hotdogs, and s'mores. Yes!

Until next time,
