Have you started watching any schmaltzy Christmas movies yet? I’m up to almost 10 watched. I love them.
I can do my weekend chores with them in the background and not miss much. They have a lot of dialogue so I don’t need to watch to know what is going on. And, the best thing is they all end happy in the end.
There are many lists on the Internet with names to choose from but really, can you go wrong? The Hallmark channel version of movies are what I enjoy the most this time of year. There is always a little romance sprinkled in for more warm, fuzzies. Hope you have time to take some of these in.
My new favorite ice cream flavor!! OMG. Check it out NOW!! R-u-n to the grocery store and pick this stuff up.
AND, it’s slow churned so calories are about 1/3 less and fat is 1/2 of what you’ll get in real ice cream.
Ah Fall. The colors are so beautiful. The air so refreshingly crisp. The trails so much less used. Ha!!
I love this time of year when people seem to start to go inside until next Spring. It means many of my outside haunts are more solitary. #quietbeauty
I listen to podcasts a lot and sometimes get bored with whatever I’ve been listening to. So about a year ago, while looking for something new I ran across an obscure podcast that was a quick, easy listen.
In many of the episodes, the host kept mentioning Nano month and how much she was trying to meet this writing goal. It was totally foreign to me but because I’ve been writing a lot more in recent years I tried to find out what I could.
Fast forward to this past Thursday and I’m on a conference call listening to a town hall. I’m skimming my smart phone and notice that trending on Twitter is #NaNoWrMo2018. Hmmm.
I looked into it and decided to join in for the fun of it. No planning. No forethought. I grabbed one of the projects I’ve been working on and I’m off.
NaNoWrMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It appears to have been going on for a long time but I didn’t know anything about it. It’s basically an organization that through a website provides motivation to write. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
I know 50,000 probably won’t happen for me but they say that it is an achievable goal for a full-time worker with a family to achieve in a month. So let’s test this. I’ll let you know how many words I write in November. (Not counting blogs or paid projects that is.)
Have you ever heard of NaNoWrMo? Are you doing it this month? Have you ever? I’d love to know.
