month.in.review: nov 2014

3 memories

  • nanowrimo & a new project: didn't finish my nanowrimo novel this year, but i had a good time. as always, it's about giving myself the time and practice i need to master the craft of writing. i'm deep in the outlining phase of my new project and looking forward to getting into it.
  • new pok√©mon: snagged copies for me and the spousebot. so fun playing it together!
  • making a tree: spending hours putting tiny pieces of tape while snacking on holiday treats. pics to come or check out my instagram.

2 obsessions

  • trying holiday teas & coffee: i'm a total sucker for seasonal stuffs! 
  • coffee tumblers: i've accumulated a small collection of travel tumblers (which is great, since i tend to spill). i'm making them part of my writing ritual by only using them during my morning writing sessions. 

1 looking forward to

  • traveling: we've got holiday travels coming up to visit family. time to start stocking up on books to read on the plane!

nanowrimo 2014


From the NaNoWriMo site:
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
I wasn't sure if I'd be participating this year, but my current outline is looking good to go, so I'm diving in headfirst. That first rough draft is my least favorite part of the noveling process, so NaNoWriMo is exactly the sort of thing I need to get it churned out.

Also, can I just say how much I love this year's participant icons & banners?

Be sure to check out the website for more info and to sign up. Best of luck to my fellow participants!

month.in.review: oct 2014

3 memories

  • running: easing back into running, trying to be patient and enjoy the process. i tend to push myself too hard too quickly, which leads to burnout and injuries.
  • renting ridiculous movies: the spousebot & i have been hitting up our nearby redbox a lot this month. at first i felt pressured to keep up with the latest and greatest, but realized i just wanted to get whatever looks entertaining. zombie eel slugs! aliens vs. dinosaurs!
  • starting a new project: deep in the outlining phase and contemplating using it as a nanowrimo project.

2 obsessions

  • pumpkin everything: i've been experimenting with pumpkin soup, pumpkin smoothies, and pumpkin latte recipes at home. next up: pumpkin curry
  • new running shoes: i picked up two new pairs. 1) Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14, and 2) ASICS GT-1000 3

1 looking forward to

  • Halloween: the spousebot & I have a tradition of watching the nightmare before christmas together on halloween. we snuggle up, eat all the good candy, & take turns passing out to trick-or-treaters.
