NaNiWriMo contestant, Yup that's me...


(This is my CRAZY ME. I registered for a Novel writing thing? WHAT? 30 days to write a novel?)
Well I did it folks. I registered for National novel writing month! I know, I am crazy. But I think I can do it you guys. I LOVE to write and have even outlined something to write about. 50,000 words is ALL I have to come up with. I think I figured just about 2,000 words a day. I can do that. EASY! (I hope so.) I'm excited. So cheer me on in November, ok? I promise NOT to neglect my blogging audience, 'cause I am a Blogaholic. Yes, I said it, I'm addicted. I'll keep you posted, with a word count and EVERYTHING.

So I've been thinking, If YOU were to leave a treasure of yours behind because you had to leave your home quickly, what would you hide? (Assuming you would be able to come back and recover your treasure.)

I'm not sure what I personally would hide. I don't really have any money to hide. I wear my wedding ring. Hmmm. What should I hide? Chocolate? That'd be good, except it melts. I'll think about it.

In other news, Halloween carnival was tonight. My girls dressed up. My "A" was a Baliwood dancer. "M" was an Indian princess. And the littlest? She is a sushi.
So cute, and they are ALL mine.
Here's some PICS...






I know, So cute, huh? I love the laughing and the drinking root beer! I swear my little "L" cracks me up every day.

Good luck with NANO! I'm going to pass this year, but will write along anyway. I just don't think I'll make it to 50,000 words! Have fun! :)

Hey I'm doing NaNoWriMo too! Only I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to find the time. We'll see what happens.

I love the costumes.

My treasure is my pictures for sure. In fact I have them all in a fire-proof safe in my house...yes they really are my treasure.

The sushi Halloween outfit is divine and so original!

My kids and us have our ward trunk or treat tomorrow night. We're going as anything we can find that fits from our dress up box. That might just leave me & my husband out of the picture, though...

Good luck with the writing!! I'm not good with writing (as my blog shows), but I can talk for DAYS!! Is there a contest for talking?! Haha!!

Helen said...

Sushi?? I love it! Well, no, I don't love sushi, raw fish isn't my thing... but I LOVE that she dressed up as it! It's just too cute!

Good luck on NaNoWriMo. I tried NaBloWriMo, Nat'l Blog Writing Month, and oh how I failed. I blame my laptop.

I'll be sure to pop in often for encouragement and wisecracks :D

I've been trying to decide if I want to join into the novel writing month but it's also NaBloPoMo (blog every day for a month) so I can't decide which I want to do or both. This is a crazy month and since it's the first I guess I better decide! Good luck!

Mox said...

WOW! A novel in a month?! You've definitely got some MOXIE, MAMA! ;)

LOVE the sushi costume.

Returning a visit and a comment.

Can't wait to hear more about the novel! Keep us posted.

Hey, I saw your comment on the Lion's Tale about Nano and had to come over. Me, too! This is actually my sixth year (because I am crazy in six different ways, apparently). How's your word count so far?
