Happy Halloween! Kinda. I'm tired tired tired and had to force myself to blog right now because all I feel like doing is chilling out with a movie.
Halloween is my favourite time of year, but I'm not doing anything to celebrate, at least not tonight, anyway. Yesterday we (Brian, Drew, and myself) did Jack-o-lanterns, which made me happy. I want to post a picture of them but they're on Brian's phone and I don't want to bug him to upload right now cause he's kinda bummed out about his ginormous hard drive up and dying... understandable. I'm sure I will do my own little celebration this week - I usually at least do a reading to sort of forecast the coming year. That might be interesting to share with you.
Midnight marks the beginning of NaNoWriMo 2011. This is my third year participating. Keeping with tradition, I haven't prepared anything so it should be another interesting experience. Because of how tired I am I probably won't start writing until the morning. I've found getting as much writing done in the morning gives you more freedom to make up for any possible procrastination or life interruption later on in the day. And if you manage to get your minimum word count in before lunch, anything else you happen to write after that is a bonus.
I plan to be a bit of a writing machine this month: I'd like to go well beyond the 50,000 word mark and at the same time, blog here at least a few times a week. I know it will be easy to just say that I don't want to blog because I'm doing enough writing as it is or that I want to concentrate solely on the novel, but screw that, doing both is just fine.
If you're participating in NaNoWriMo this year, good luck! and feel free to add me as a writing buddy on the site
Happy Witch's New Year,
