Decision Time!!!

So NaNoWriMo is in a week!! Ahhhhhh! I used this weekend as a test weekend to see what all I could do writing-wise if the good old blog wasn't involved. Well, I have decided that I'm not going to post over the weekends (It's not like anyone reads blogs on the weekends anyway.) so that I can have the extra time to work on the 50,000 word count over the month of November. I'm sure you won't mind. :)

So officially, no posting on weekends for the month of November. Normal posting to resume on Monday! :-D

I'm excited for you! Do you have a title yet? I've been meaning to ask you, have you ever read Robin Hobb's Liveship Series? It reminded me a little bit of your story...the story is different but I felt the same feelings while reading your profiles.

Stef, you may find the most recent entry in my former writing teacher's blog interesting. She discusses NaNo...about being the critic and the creator.

That sounds like a good decision. I am writing in NaNo too and the weekends are going to be a huge chunk of my writing.

Looking forward to a successful month. Happy writing!

Lisa, thanks for the link! That blog has some great info on it.

I don't have a title as of yet, but I'm sure I'll think of it. Right now, it's called "Stefanie's Badass Novel." hehe And no, I've never heard of the Liveship Series. I'll have to take a gander. :)

Thanks, Tamika! You, too! It's going to be intense, but I have a feeling that it's going to be great.

That's probably a good idea. Maybe I should give my blogs a rest during the weekend, too. I don't know. I had considered using my main blog for NaNo status updates.
Hey, Stef. I'm going to WriMo, too. Look me up!

GunDiva, that sounds like a good idea. Go for it!

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
