Halloween was fun. The kids had a blast. My son dressed as Darth Vader, my daughter as a Witch (not the cute type). They were doing everything on their own this year. Which was a lot more relaxing for us. It’s great now that they don’t need help managing stairs and such. In our neighborhood, stairs are the rule, not the exception. Darth Vader was exhausted by the end of the trip.

For me, I am happy that Halloween movies are mostly done. I dislike them entirely because I am so easily able to be sucked into them and believe it. Then I spend the next few hours looking over my shoulder.

Roasted pumpkin seeds last night. Tried a new recipe of salt and parmesean on them. So we will see if they have the family approval tonight. I will try to get up some photos of the carved pumpkins. I like the way they turned out.

NaNoWriMo starts today. I’m happy it works for some people. Time being finite, I don’t participate. I don’t like the idea of just pointlessly churning out a deluge of words just for the sake of doing it. But like I said, it works for some people, so good for them.

Writing didn’t happen this weekend. Good week last wekk though, and planning to crank out more words this week.

  1. I did NaNoWriMo 4 years ago. It was incredibly stressful, but I did get my 50,000 words in. I think I’m one of those people for whom the concept works well – I work best when I have a goal/deadline to hit. And as a bonus, I have an actual novel that is, erm, well, 80% done.

    1. Maggi,

      Very cool. Glad you were able to push through it. It definitely works for some people. When I was *cough*writingatwork*cough*, I could crank out 1k a day or so. I could get that out to the needed words with some more writing in the evening. Not willing to risk it at my current job, so my word count is much lower.

Tell me what you think
