#100HappyDays: Day 62
National Novel Writing Month

For those of you who are knee-deep in the online writing community, chances are you've heard of the wondrous annual adventure that is NaNoWriMo. If you're new (or possibly completely uninterested), then allow me to regale you.

NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, is an annual write-til-you-drop race with the goal of crossing the finish line prior to midnight on November 30th at 50,000 (or more) words written of a manuscript.

That's it. There aren't any confusing rules, and it's simply a way to motivate yourself to write, edit-free for a full month and knock out that novel you've been thinking about for months but haven't made the time to write.

I look forward to it every year and I'm excited to read through what I've written after November comes and goes.

Do you take part in NaNo?

"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. Things That Are Yellow: bananas school buses yellow bell pepper tennis balls Post Shredded Wheat boxes (see right) lemons canaries the middle traffic light traffic lines the sun cheddar cheese hay corn butter cabs #2 pencils grapefruit raincoats (stereotypical ones, anyway) bees squash yellow jackets (I HATE those things!) the yolk of an egg scrambled eggs or an omelet peanut M&Ms the Simpsons various flowers rubber duckie etc... So that's my list of yellow things! :) The most curious? Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly. Check back later today for my 5th Character Profile on Nolan Ha
