I'm feeling a little panicky right now. NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow? Where on earth has this month gone? I am so totally unprepared to write a novel! :) At least last year I had a slight idea of plot and characters. At this moment I have nothing. I would like to write something modern with a ton of classic movie references...like a character who constantly quotes "Casablanca." But I believe it would be a little too autobiographical.
There is so much going on this month that I know it's so impractical to do NaNo. But I'm doing it, anyway. Even if last year repeats itself and I end up writing the last 15,000 in a day or so.
Most of you guys know about NaNoWriMo, don't you? In case you don't, it's a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. They're even offering a special deal again where if you accomplish this goal, you get a free paperback copy of your book! You can read more here. Or you can read my adventures from last November.
I just finished watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" Oh, how I love the Peanuts gang. I actually bought some Peanuts fall and Christmas fabric yesterday! It's so cute...I'll have to post pictures sometime. If you didn't get to watch Charlie Brown and Snoopy this weekend, here's a short fix:
In other news, November 1st usually marks the day I break out the Christmas music and movies and put up my 1960s aluminum tree. But I'm trying to hold back a little this year. I might have to start the music tomorrow, but I'm trying to wait a few weeks before I put up my tree! I'm just a Christmas nerd.
Until next time,
