Making Magic Monday

So here I am, not phoning it in on Monday!

Let's just take a moment to tell Sharpie how wonderful she is - WE LOVE YOU sharpiesgal!!!!

And while I'm thinking of it, did anyone else become addicted to the white chocolate BOO-tterscotch M&Ms in the last few weeks. They are my new favorite thing in the world! Well, next to you all.

SO - The weekend challenge did awesome this week! You all kicked it! As did all of the word wars! YOU ARE ALL SO DAMN IMPRESSIVE!!!! My inbox overfloweth!

Are you progressing on your Swaps of Joy? I am behind. :( There is so much knitting to do and I'm going like a mad fool. But I have set aside time throughout the week for both knitting and writing and by this time next week there should be real progress.

SoJ Reminder - We'll be signing up for gifting dates soon, and you need to leave time for beta reading as well. Let's do this!

11,667??? Are you there yet NaNo-ers? What about 700 to the minis? Is there anything we can to to help?

And have you seen what the fabulous folks have been doing with Fandom Squee? Check in and make some noise, and some words!!!

Now tell me, what are your plans to be awesome this week? What is your graphic/word/knitting goal (Man, if stitches counted...)? Have you cheered people on? Go pick someone at random and tell them how much they rock?

ONE MORE WORD! Go find one challenge this week and get it done! We've got this!!!

I wanted to do the weekend challenge (and its still on my to do list)...but I got carried away with the NaNo words and so...

Broke 25k...that's my excuse ;)

Gonna try to get in a few this morning, but tonight we have our fundraiser dinner for work, so I won't be around. After that, it should be fairly 'down' at work as the holidays approach, so I'll push through NaNo and get some of the challenges in...I hope!

Love you, too,

I posted an awesome post myself, but you can't have too many cheerleading posts.

I'm hoping to get some words down. This hasn't been a good year for writing.

I saw! And I think it is very very true. No such thing as too much drive!

I hear you, I feel so far behind that I'm excited over 100 words. But we'll get more done as we have SoJ! We've got this!!! WE DO!

It's kind of a crazy week here- 13 hour day helping stream the NYC marathon yesterday. A 12 hour day tomorrow, at minimum, due to the election. And sometime between now and Thursday I hope to get my place organized, in advance of welcoming a foster kitty. :). I'm not ready to adopt but miss having a fur ball around, so... we'll see how that goes!

Late this week will be devoted in great part to SOJ and a Tumblr gift exchange. And that will be awesome!

She really is, isn't she? Even when overwhelming me with all the plot bunnies. :D

NOOO. My husband is diabetic and he loves anything butterscotch so I didn't even BUY any when I saw them. Although I did bake cookies last night... but at least the kids will help him devour those.

I haven't even started my SOJ, but I do have the idea for it, so that helps. I'm hoping to get started on it today!

So, this week I'm going to do whatever I can to be productive both at work and in my writing!

Oh, they sound GOOD!

Hah - yes, it is indeed her magic! And it is very much appreciated over this way.

I CAN! :D

You are awesome! Keep up the good work. :) And I keep meaning to ask - do you know how to knit boot cuffs?

Be glad you don't have an Evil Bob. You would be overwhelmed with the bunnies would feel the need to share. Bwwhahaha...,

I don't even need Evil Bob! I have a folder full of prompts and then I have like 1800 notifications from this comm saved as well. *headdesk* At least if I had Bob, I could feed him the prompts because yanno, bunnies will eat ANYTHING.

But hey... I'll never run out of ideas though, right?

Oooh, those M&Ms sound good - we didn't get them here!

YAY, Sharpie! ♥

OMG, I completely forgot I was on DCC yesterday... *hangs head*. My only excuse was being buried so deeply in an ebook, I did not surface at all in my spare time, apart from watching The Durrells on TV last night.

And no, haven't started SOJ or any other thing I owe. *sigh* so I need to get it together and get on with stuff tonight!!!

on the upside, I am nearly finished my preemy cardigan, which being so tiny should have been finished in about 3 days but me being me hasn't yet been finished in the 3 weeks or so I've been knitting.

ONWARDS!
