Happy Halloween, Goodbye World

Happy Halloween! May the spooks follow you, and may you have occasion to be scared. :-)

Tonight begins National Novel Writing Month. And I'm VERY excited!!! I thought of a plot last friday, and I've been thinking about it since then, fleshing it out, getting more and more ideas until I don't know what to do with them! I'm going to start at 12:00 tonight, stay up until I'm too tired to write coherently, go to sleep, wake up, clean my room, and spend the rest of the day writing. With maybe a brief pause to do, you know, homework. So, basically, starting tomorrow, you won't be hearing from me a lot on this little blog thingy, because most of my spare writing time will be dedicated to my novel (that's the "Goodbye World" part of the title. Goodbye, blog world, hello nanowrimo world!). I'll try to put updates every now and then, and in the middle of Week Two I'll probably write about how my novel sucks and I shouldn't finish (week two is always the killer), but then in Week Three I'll be all optimistic again and excited to finish, so, that's how my month will be. AH, I'm so excited!! And impatient! And HOLY COW I'm a nerd. Oh well, I can live with that. :-) Good thing, too, because otherwise I guess I'd have to die. And I don't want to die! Not yet anyway! I need to write my novel, get married, have kids, and be published before I die!
I'm in a crazy mood! Because I'm so excited for tonight! Hope everyone enjoys this happy halloween, and I'll see you in November!
Thanks for reading!
P.S. So, twice in a row I almost ended without saying "thanks for reading" but I feel like I HAVE to put it now on every post. So, even though I could have ended it with "I'll see you in November" I had to add "thanks for reading" because it's kind of like my signature now... Oh bother.

P.S. Do you like the new background? I chose it for Kristi. Because of the awesome staples. :)

Haha, makes me think of Andes mints (which is good, because those are yummy).

Good luck with your novel!

Kristi Tolman said...

That is so funny, because I saw the staples, and thought "Uh! Staples!!!"

I think you're all nerds. But in a good way.
