NaNoWriMo checkin

Howdy folks! It's that time again. Some of you will be starting NaNoWriMo before I get home from work today - (or at least I think the folks on the other side of the pond might hit midnight on Nov 1 long before me) so I thought we'd kick off the first checkin post a little early.

Is everyone stoked? Nervous? Wondering how in the heck you're going to find time to make your word counts?

Personally this year is going to be a bit of a challenge ... Hubby and I have identical work schedules and we both are NaNo participants so we have some computer time sharing to do - that and work has been insanely busy - but hey - this just may be the thing I need to kick my ass in gear and get creating again. I've had quite the dry spell, although I am putting the final touches on a little belated b-day gift for kaige68 ...

So drop us a note and let us know a little about your plans for NaNo this year :D

Tomorrow I'll try and squeeze in some word wars - not sure exactly when but likely around 4pm Pacific Time - Stay Tuned!

Awesome Monday

Hello peeps!

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it.

Happy Monday to everyone else.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and produced many words.

Tommorow K will be adding up words and images for October. Please update your counts.

Also, if you signed up for Swap of Joy, please let K know that you received your assignment.

Now onto telling us how awesome you plan to be this week.

Me, it's another week of retail hell. I'm hoping to get words onto the proverbial electronic page.
