I find it hard to believe that November is over. Fall has raced by and I feel a bit behind the eight ball. I thought I’d share what I have been up to and what has kept me busy this month..
November is National Novel Writing Month. I have participated a few times and always enjoy it as I work better with a deadline. The non-profit has a great web-site with forums both world-wide and regional. Regional for me is my city. I can find out where write-in are happening, how people are doing and get and give support to my fellow NaNos. The goal is to write a 50,000 novel in a month.
This is me!!
My table with china my sister and mother started me on when I was sixteen. Wallpaper up this summer with help from cousin (you know who you are!!).
This month I started an on-line screen and playwriting course that I purchased for a really good deal. I also came across the 101 in 1001 challenge (over at A Rose Colored Life) which intrigued me as it had to do with making a list – which I love. The challenge is to write down 101 things/events/challenges you want to do/see/explore in the next 1001 days. Which works out to almost three years. So out came paper and pen and hmm……why is this so hard? I started with reasonable items I could do in my own city, some travel, writing, blogging and decorating/items for home and WOW now I had 20 items. Since I have almost three years a few items I could do more then once, right? Back on the list. I have to admit it was a challenge and I tried not to put wild improbable goals down. Have a read of the link. I think it is an interesting challenge and I would love to hear what you think.
Besides that I received my first two Christmas cards in November. I now have mine on my desk and have one envelop addressed. I searched Pinterest and found a craft I want to try paperclip angel
That is about it for me for November, besides daily living and working full-time. Would love to hear how your November was, any ideas we should be checking out, web sites and crafts. It is a busy time of year so take a break and enjoy.
