My trick-or-treater before we set out in search of candy galore.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Less than 12 hours until Nano starts. I'm no closer to knowing exactly what I'll be working on, but I'm excited. Also looking forward to trick-or-treating tonight.

Today is the last day for early voting, so I went and did that a while ago. The line was long, but moved fairly fast. Took longer to get through the line than it did to vote. Glad I did it.

Three More Days!

Until the start of NaNoWriMo. I got my 10th anniversary t-shirt the other day.
And I've managed to rack up enough pre-Nano projects to drive myself completely insane. I hope to finish them today.

I'm still undecided about what I'll write for NaNoWriMo, but discovering it along the way will be half the fun. My BFF is participating but of course my prodding didn't count. She wanted to have an "unofficial" challenge with me until the new dude she likes (who, I might add, is a Literature major from Oxford) said he wanted to sign up for Nano, too, and then she was all gung ho. Some friend, huh? At least I approve of him. The Literature major was what did it for me.

Book List

Last night I finished reading book 21 for this year's e-harlequin reading challenge. That's four more than I read last year.

I've already chosen the next book I'll read--about a sexy vampire cowboy. After that, I'll go to my newly devised plan of randomly picking titles from my TBR pile. I typed up those titles last night, cut them into strips of paper, and put them in a Halloween baggie. Fun stuff, but I'm thinking the plan will either prove successful in narrowing the pile down, or boring at the lack of spontaneity. Often times, I read what I'm in the mood for, or if a favorite author has a new book out everything else becomes secondary, so we'll see how this choosing random titles goes. Might be good, because I really do have some older ones that need to be read and moved out of here.

My favorite!

The fall is my favorite time of year. Love Halloween, and the cooler weather. The other day I was at the bookstore looking for something new for the youngest to read, and wondered if it's just me or is there a new young adult vampire novel coming out all the time? Not complaining, just an observation. I happen to adore them all. I've noticed a lot lately, and maybe more so now that it's almost Halloween. I have the first two Twilight books to read for myself. And not new, but new to me, the Vampire Diaries looked interesting.

On the shelf with some of those novels was this black lace and heart journal that I couldn't pass up. You know me and my journal addiction.
