Nano nerves

I don't know if I'm being affected by the impending storm, but I'm getting really wound up about writing this story.  It's not going to be fictional for once, and it's supposed to be enlightening. Boo! Unknown territory! Yuk! Why Why WHY am I doing this to myself????

Anyone else have pre-Nano tremors?  how do you do character outlines for REAL people?

nano..what? NaNoWriMo!

It's almost November, folks; and, for writers, that means nano time.. where we each try to write 50,000 words between Nov 1 and Nov 30. (Yes, of the same year - silly rabbit!)  Head over to for more info.

I have entered 4 times and completed the challenge 3 times. It has actually been a few years since I've completed a challenge, so it's about time I got back down to business. My handle is crazynance if you want to look me up. Comment below and I will add you to my friends list.  Got to go, there are plots to be hatched!

and I'm back

Been a long time since I wrote my blog, yeeeeahhhh~
Ok, so the appeasing rock'n'roll intro should have taken the edge off the lack of posts around here.

The rain has started again. In the fall, it rains and rains, and slowly the days get colder. One day you wake up, and the rain is now snow.  But for now, we are still oooo-ing and ahhh-ing over the beautiful colours of the turning leaves, and scuffling through the fallen leaves on the sidewalk as they crunch underfoot. My neighbours have Hallowe'en (All Hallows Eve- Oct 31, as Nov 1 is All Saints Day) decorations up. There are mock gravestones, and ghosts and monsters in many porches. On the evening of Oct 31, as it gets dark, the children start coming around door to door for candy.  They say 'trick or treat' but they mean 'Please give me candy'.
