Halloween Is Over, NaNoWriMo Is Here

*Thankfully, I’m nowhere near Hurricane Sandy, so I am still here with all of my power and blogging capabilities. *

Yesterday was Halloween, and it was fun. Today is NaNoWriMo, and that’s fun too!

Halloween was pretty good for me, except for the fact that it’s probably my last year actually dressing up and getting candy, instead of giving candy. Which stinks.I was a painter, so I had a bucket and a paint stick and brush and hat, and it was cool!

I also got a load of candy, and the exciting news there is that I actually like most of it this year, so that was great and now I get to keep most of it….mwa hahaha….

Some more exciting news is that NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, please tell me you’ve heard of it) started today, and a lot of the bloggers I follow/read/etc have been pretty excited about it. Hey, I would be too, except for the fact that I’m not doing it.

Wait. What did tomte say?

Yes, I’m not doing it this year. Although, I am seriously considering doing it next year. But anyways, NaNo is a really cool thing, and so is YWP. I really like it. But I’m not doing it. (Really.)

NaNo is where you write a novel in thirty days, but I can write a novel in about ten years, so if I do it next year, it’s sure to be an interesting challenge. Maybe I’ll start with YWP, just to gain some experience. I really have no clue what I’m doing, so luckily it’s somewhat normal if I totally crash and burn.

But back to reality.

I find NaNo quite interesting, purely from a teenager’s view. I mean, it is somewhat crazy to think that you could write a novel in thirty days, but at the same time it seems lucridiously fun. I like the wordcount widgets, I like the website, I like pretty much everything about it.

As a matter of fact, I joined a while ago so that I would be ready for next year. My name is fuzzysockgirl, if you want to add me.

I’m quite excited for you guys. I’ve heard a lot about the novels you plan on writing/writing a second book. It seems quite exciting.(Did I say that already?)

So I hope you had a good Halloween, and happy NaNoWriMo to you NanoWriMoers! (Hmm, that sounds like a type of lawn mowers. I’ll just call you NaNo’s from now on.)

I Am Inspiring!

Yesterday, nevillegirl presented me with a new blog award I haven’t seen before, the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

So thank you, nevillegirl.

Rules: 

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Boom. Done.
  2. Place the award on your site. Boom. Done again.
  3. Share 7 random things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs. Let them know they’ve been nominated and how to accept the award.

 

Now for seven random things about me……..

  1. My mom has a basket that you put on a step, and part of it goes on one step, and the rest of it goes on a lower step, and I love it because it’s so cool.
  2. I keep meaning to make little ghosts to hang in the big tree for Halloween, but I never got around to doing it.
  3. I wore a great red cape today, and I wanted to make it into my Halloween costume, but I couldn’t think of anything mind-blowing. (Any ideas?)
  4. I had some of that Japanese soda where you open it and there’s a marble inside, but it won’t come out (the marble) and it was HEAVENLY CARBONATED FIZZ.
  5. I’ve been in a Christmassy mood lately.
  6. I will start laughing hysterically when somebody gets a present and they have no idea what it is, and I know exactly what it is. Then the gift recipient tends to get a little freaked out by my maniac-evil-Voldemort-like laughing.
  7. I painted a birdhouse today.

Here are my nominees. I didn’t do fifteen because that’s a lot of people, and a lot of them who I want to nominate have already  been nominated.

Four more nominees! Four is a nice round number…..or is it? Can a number be round?
