I Am...

Glad that October is almost over. From the beginning I knew it was going to be a packed month and, as we enter the last full week, I'm relieved that the end is in sight. November, dear November, you look so good with all your white space.

Excited about the growth that is going on over at She Reads. If you are a book lover and haven't spent time over there what are you waiting for? We offer guest posts from wonderful authors, reviews of not-to-be-missed books, and monthly selections you can read along with other women. It's a veritable festival of story!

Wondering when my seven year old will stop crying over small things. She has apparently never heard of the concept "Don't sweat the small stuff."

Thinking about committing to NaNoWriMo. I actually have a book I want to write so this is good timing. But do I dare attempt to do it in a month? And what happens if my edits come back during November? And remember the whole "November white space" thing I said earlier? Yeah...

Happy that all my meals for this week are planned and purchased. It's the little things.

Looking forward to a quick trip at the end of the week to the NC coast. I'll be participating in Litchfield Books' Moveable Feast on Friday and spending some time at my uncle's beach house. Am hoping to get in a long walk on the beach, time with a good friend, and maybe some writing.

Reading No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty, who invented NaNoWriMo. Am reading it in tentative preparation for NaNoWriMo, all while not admitting to myself that I'm actually going to do this.

Planning a trip to Windy Hill Apple Orchard next Monday when my kids have off school. My three youngest will love it. Sigh. I do love fall. I just wish winter didn't come with it.

Pin It!

I was all geared up to do NaNoWriMo last year...and then got a sinus infection Nov 1. Have been less excited this year. But if you can do, than I'm sure I can too! :)
