If you’re the observant type, you’ve already noticed the badges over in the sidebar. There’s one for NaNoWriMo and one for PiBoIdMo, and the calendar for Picture Book Month is there, too. So, a couple things.
If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, you can zip over to my Muffin post where I explain all those letters and what they mean. And how you can join in the fun. New writers are popping up and popping in here every day so I want you to know what everyone in the writing community is blathering on about all November. Because honestly, it’s not like we’re going to
suffer work in silence.
November is going to be busy, busy, busy! I’ll be revising a novel and thinking up ideas and reading, reading, reading. I hope I’ll be learning, learning, learning, too. And all that writing, writing, writing keeps Cathy running around like a chicken with her head cut off (or perhaps a chicken trying to keep her head). But even a speedy chicken can come up with a post or two and a couple surprises, so I hope to see you around. But if you’re also pushing through November, trying to make word counts and idea deadlines, I’ll completely understand.
NSLA,NSFA started as my very first NaNoWriMo novel…way back in 2004. Good luck!!!
Trisha, I’m working on a revision of the very first Nano I tried (in 2009)…I think I finally know what the story should be about. (Somehow, I think yours started out A LOT better than mine!) 🙂
Okay, I read your post about being a speedy chicken and thought, “Hmmmm…why does she have a picture of an orangutan then?” Hahahaaa! Happy November, Cath!
It’s a SPEEDING chicken, Deb. You’d be a blur, too, if you were running for your life! 🙂 (Happy November back at’cha!)
Cathy–Good luck. May the force (or the muse) be with you.
I’ll need ’em both, Sioux! (Thanks!)
That was an orangutan? I had to go back and peer closely at the picture. (I’m not wearing my glasses, so bear with me.) Yes, it is definitely a chicken, a speedy chicken, and one who still has her head intact. Hang in there, Cathy! You’ve got this!
Thank you, Suzanne, for recognizing a speedy chicken. 🙂 And thanks for the boost of confidence. (Sure, I can do, it. But will it stink? THAT is the question!) 🙂
No NaNo for me this year, but I’ll be sending positive thoughts out to you!
Wait–did you feel that? The world just stopped spinning! 🙂 (It just doesn’t feel like November if Lisa’s not typing 100 words a minute for Nano! But thanks for the thoughts. What I really need is your mad skilz…) 🙂
My fall has been too crazy to even stop and smell the Acronyms – but YOU, GO, GIRL and have a wonderfully creative month!!! (Bok, bok…)
Thanks, Robyn! I know you’re running around, too! (bok, bok…) 🙂
I’m actually enjoying being so busy! I love NaNo, even if it makes me crazy, um…crazier. 🙂
Good luck with everything!
Oh, Madeline, you are a writing fiend! (You know I mean that in a good way, right?) 🙂
I was going to go for NaNonFiWriMo for nonfiction writers but am already having to admit I may not make the progress I’d hoped for. All the best to the flying fingers and vivid imaginations at work with my writing friends!
