A chit's yearly list of nonsense

Reading and Writing: October 2012


I took an unscheduled blogging break for two weeks trying to get back into the school rhythm. I ended up spending most of the time reading, writing, and enjoying the last bits of summer.

Being a native South Floridian fall has become my favorite time of year and if it wasn’t so dark out I’d be lying under the apple trees reading my next chapter in history. Instead, I’m inside doing laundry, cleaning out the fridge- you know typical Monday chores.

The countdown to NaNoWriMo is on but so is the countdown for my December vacation which means I need to be very, VERY organized for the next two months.  September’s writing challenge fizzled out just like my blog but I did get a few interesting pieces and mayhap even my NaNo ’12 idea!

NaNo for the New and the Insane: I mentioned it last month but am finding some great bits of advice so will keep reading. Only thing I noticed it is no longer on Barnes and Noble but you can still get it from her website.
