Happy Happy Halloween

Hello, everybody :)

To those who celebrate it in some fashion or another, Happy Happy Halloween (Super Station, as my Dad would sing, in reference to some old scary movie I know nothing about....).

If you don't celebrate it, Happy Monday to ya :) I think that covers everyone.

What have I done today? Work related business, took my brother to school, felt guilty about random writing related things (but not guilty enough to rectify those situations...). As you can see, I'm one busy lady lol.

I planned on scrounging up an outline for this Nanowrimo business. If you don't know what it is, it's basically people promising to write a complete (ish) novel from beginning to end within the month of November. I've never done it before. I've lurked on the forums, though, which I have already said on here are made of amazingness. And Awesomeness. With.A.Capital.A. It's just all so inspiring, but this time I'm doing it, with no forseeable plan as of yet.

But all of that could change when I get off of here. It totally could. I have a hankerin to write the Sci-fi ish book that's been catching my eye on my big ol' list of things, but then again, winging it sounds fun. So, after I get off here, I'm going to look around the forums, get inspired, and make a decision to wing or not to wing. lol.

I am excited about it, though. And I want more writing buddies on there, so add me if you haven't already: Writtled :)

Now to leave you with a song to write by, "Ohio Is for Lovers" by Hawthorne Heights. Why? Because I used to run to this song, and I like it, and that's all the reason I need :)


Happy Reading and Writing, y'all :)

  1. So you're going to start from scratch? Good for you! I'm doing revisions for my NaNo. I feel much more confident about that than drafting. Have fun with yours!

    Happy Halloween!

  2. I like the Nano forums, too. I didn't sign up this year, but I have been reading. Good luck, and Happy Halloween!

  3. Good luck! I was hoping to inspire my husband to try, but he is so immersed in his YA novel that he can't think about anything else. Have fun!

  5. Happy Halloween, Kelley! Good luck getting NaNo started from scratch - outlines are overrated anyway :-)

  6. Happy Halloween! I added you as a NaNo buddy. I'm excited. :) I'm having a scary story giveaway on my blog today too.

  7. Good luck on NaNo! I'm also joining in this year -- although not precisely since I've already written a few thousands words. But it's also Science Fiction. :)

    Thanks for following me. I've followed back because I really enjoy your blog!

  10. CNHolmberg, other than dressing up as a bum/hooded creature in a college sweatshirt, no :)



    And seeing as I'm still jumping around the blogosphere, I proooobably will be winging it, but maybe from a semi-formed loose idea. Who knows? lol

  11. The yearly nanowrite seems to loom over us all, but at least there's no shortage of things to write about:) Until tomorrow, Happy Halloween!

  14. That is a great song (and not just because I'm from Ohio)! I have a few tracks off that album on my writing playlists.

  15. Good luck with NaNo. I'm not doing it. I'm still editing my wip and haven't finished planning my next project. Maybe December will have to be my NaNo. :D

  16. Yeah, I'm crazy enough to think I can do Nano!

  17. I love the idea of NaNo, and I'm doing it this year for sure, but I'm such a solitary writer, and (I feel like such a scrooge saying this) I generally like it that way. It'll be really interesting to see what it's like sharing this experience with so many others!

  18. Did you start today? Decide to take the plunge?

    I've never done an outline before. Outlines scare me.
