It's finally here! The holiday all kids look forward to (well, that and Christmas). I'm pretty excited to get my little ones in their costumes and take them trick-or-treating. My boys even have the whole jingle down, you know the one 'trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat'. They have even practiced on their bedroom door, taking turns being the trick-or-treater. As 'spooky' as this holiday is supposed to be, I'm more into the fun of it, and not the 'it's the night the veil between the dead and the living is thinnest' thing. I don't my kids having nightmares over it.
And let's not forget what tomorrow is. NaNoWriMo. Wow, where has the time gone? Seriously. Only two more months until the end of 2011! Well, I have to say, I'm looking forward to the challenge November is going to present for me. Juggling my every day life with trying to write as much as I can, while editing another novel, that's going to be interesting. I might not have hair by the end of it, or only patches of it left where I didn't pull it out. We'll see. But I love writing, and to me NaNo isn't about the word count, but the motivation. I know some people are going to do everything possible to make it to that 50,000 words, but honestly, I just want to write something I love and not really pay attention to the number. I've been looking for a reason to start a new project, and NaNo was the push I needed. It's surprising that I'm not going to put myself through the ringer to get to that 50,000 word count, considering how competitive I can be, but I'd like to think it's because I'm mellowing out in my old age. (Yeah, I know, I'm not old.) I'm not sure how much blogging I'll be doing over the next month, I want to focus all my energy on my story, but I'll try to pop in every now and then. I also have a few posts in my que for those days I have no desire to blog what-so-ever.
Okay then. Good luck to everyone with November, whether or nor you're doing NaNo. I'll keep you guys in the loop as much as possible. Other than that, have fun with it!
