Dear Friend: Some Writerly News

Dear Friend:

I like to start my notes to you as if we're already in the middle of a conversation.

I couldn't resist starting out that way...*sits down, grabs coffee*

Okay, so I've been thinking. This whole National Novel Writing Month thing. I've been thinking about...discussing it over with my muse...and my anti-muse...and my younger writing self...we've decided that it's time. It's time that we try the whole NaNoWriMo thing all over again.

So here's the thing though, I did do this a few years back and got caught up because I had mid-terms at the time. And now that I've graduated, and my time is a bit more free, I think this would be the best time to take on the challenge and see what I can do. I would LOVE to make the 50,000 word mark. But for right now, I'd like to see how far I can go.

Okay, let's think about this for a second...

*insert subject change here*

And in the latest developments, I received another blog award!

I'm so proud! The second time I have been bestowed the award - so exciting. Okay, so there are some rules to this blog award. First is to share seven things about yourself - -

1) I love the fall - and especially love the winter.
2) I drink red wine, but I still look for the "Lavender Martini" at restaurants when I go out.
3) Recently I bought 10 books for 13 bucks. Yay.
4) I can't believe I have only had this blog for four months. Feels longer.
5) My biggest distraction is Sims 3.
6) I don't have a car.
7) I am at that top 5% of users going over AT&T's largest data service plan. And yes, I'm really proud of that!

SoooOO, the next part of the process is passing along the blog love to 15 other bloggers!

Drum roll please...

**brrrrrrrrrruummmm.....drrrrrummmm** (I don't know how do you type out a "drum" noise)

Here's the fabulous bloggers with the award -

13)  Inside My Mind
14) Charity's Writing Journey
15) Maureen Crisp

Whoo! That's a lot of bloggers! So follow them, say hi, and tell them who sent ya!

Okay, now about this National Novel Writing Month thing...

I think I will do it. Isn't it exciting!

Here's my badge to prove it -

If you want you can find me on their site - just look for "BeingTheWriter" user name.

Happy bogging and have a great weekend everyone!

Oh and don't forget to link up on the Writer Wednesday Blog Hop!


  1. #1 - Congrats on your blog bling and thank you for bestowing some if it on me. For that you receive a (((HUG))).

    #2 - You'll discover that time here on the blogs is different than time in the real world. Kind of like dog years. Your blog is actually 28 months old. For that you receive a (((HUG))).

    #3 - I am not a NaNo-nite, but I cheer on everybody who partakes in that madness. For that you receive a (((HUG))).

    I just like to (((HUG))) :) Have a great weekend!

  2. Good luck with this. Let us know how it goes.
