Thirty Days and Nights of Literary Abandon?

Wow, November first. Not just All Saints Day. Today is significant for other reasons as well.

  • The little man slept in this morning, after his exciting yet exhausting introduction to the world of trick or treating. His enthusiasm was inspiring and his projection was top notch (he was practically shouting TRICK OR TREAT). And the lad remembered to say “thank you” at every house. Well done. We’ll definitely be doing that again. Only on Halloween, of course.
  • It is time to celebrate the birth of Empress Eve. Happy Birthday Eve!
  • Speaking of which, it’s also World Vegan Day.
  • Today saw the kick off National Writing Month. I don’t know if I’m insane enough to give it a go this year, tempted though I am (speaking of insane, the Austin, TX group got together at midnight last night to kick things off). A much more reasonable compromise would be NaBloPoMo. But it seems a bit silly. I post to this blog nearly every day as it is and have heard from some readers that it is too much.
  • The surprise I alluded to yesterday? It’s a camera. I worry that the learning curve will be steep. I’ve been using my Olympus C-4040Z for so long…we have a symbiotic relationship. That camera is like an extension of me. It sees what I see and I don’t have to think at all to use it. This new one? Frankly I find it a bit intimidating. Though I haven’t given it a chance yet. It arrived yesterday and I haven’t had time to sit down and play around with it. Soon. Very soon. And maybe someday we too will be as one.

    My first NaNoWriMo experience is a lot easier than I thought it would be. Turns out I got a lot of story in me.

  3. Barrett, that is seriously awesome. I wish I could do it this year, but life is too crazy.

    A-Wix, yes! Though I haven’t the faintest idea how to use it yet. I’m hoping to sit down with it tonight or tomorrow morning, but I’ve been especially short on free time lately. Sigh.
