Happy November!

How was your Halloween?

I went simpler this year in decorating, mostly because my schedule was all over the place. I didn’t feel in the Halloween spirit this year and did you know, I had not a single trick or treater come knocking at my door last night? I had 9 or so last year. I didn’t even see any kids out and about in the neighborhood. It’s a good thing that I bought the candy that I enjoy. So I filled the house up with the comforting scent of a spaghetti sauce bubbling away on the stove and chocolate chip cookies in the oven. I showered, changing into my ‘Night of the Living Parrothead’ Margaritaville T-shirt and my LuLaRoe Yeti leggings. Robb put “Beetlejuice” into the DVD player and we spent the night relaxing, which was much needed. All things considered (including a grandmother in the hospital), it was a good Halloween.

I wasn’t feeling pasta, so I served my spaghetti sauce with a garlic cheese bread.

Onto other things. Today is November 1st. Do you know what that means? What? All Saint’s Day? Well, true. But today also marks the start of NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month! The goal is NaNoWriMo is that participants work towards of goal of writing a 50,000 word novel by midnight on November 30th. I’ve been a participant on and off since its early days but have never successfully accomplished it.

I’m doing NaNoWriMo a little different this year. Sure, I’m going to still work on some fiction pieces (saying I’m not going to work on a story is like telling a dog not to eat poop) – but I’m going to focus on blogging. My goals for NaNoWriMo are two-fold:

This isn’t such a bad goal to have, right? I still have a goal of finishing a novel by January 1st, but doing NaNoWriMo allows me to focus on that as well as helping me put in the effort to my blogging.

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo?
