Too Early!!

     Today is a strange day. I woke up at 3:30am and was bored. I tried to go back to sleep, but failed. So finally, at 3:53am, I got up and got ready to go to work. I left my house at 4:40am and came to Starbucks to work on my NaNoWriMo novel (which is coming along quickly, and I've logged nearly 10K words!). I have never done this before. I can't decide if I like it or not. It's been nice to get my morning started off to a quiet and productive start, but I know that the rest of the day is going to be l-o-n-g. And I'm supposed to do Pilates with my sister tonight ... we'll see if I make it.

     I love NaNo. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do it this year, but so far it's been ok. I think that has to do with the fact that last year my story was fantasy and I had to take a lot of time figuring out how things would work in an alternate world, and this year it's just a love story, which isn't that hard to imagine. It's kind of fun to live vicariously through a character I've created. 

     It's fall. So why is it scheduled to be 89 degrees today??? The red cups are out at Starbucks (too early!! Slow it down!!), lights are on the trees downtown, and Christmas commercials are appearing. I love this season! October-December are my favorite months.

[hashtag] NaNoWriMo2012!

It's here! NaNoWriMo 2012!!

Last year's NaNo was pretty successful, and I would love to be able to win two years in a row. HOWEVER, with a new job and more extra-curricular activities (i.e. AWANA, Bible study, softball, etc.), there isn't much time for literary abandon. *SIGH* BUT I am still going to try. And I am so excited!!
