- NaNoWriMo is less than a week away and I’m not ready. My wrists aren’t ready, my brain isn’t ready, and my schedule isn’t ready. But against all odds, I will press on and aim for the great 50,000 word count. Despite my better judgment, I’m considering handwriting my draft once again, mostly because that is a better way to ensure that my files don’t get deleted, and I don’t want to have to drag a laptop around everywhere I go. I’ll just have to make sure my pens don’t run out of ink. 🙂
- The presidential election is only a couple weeks away, and I can’t wait for the whole shebang to be over. I went out and voted early in the hopes that maybe it would make the time between now and the actual election go by more quickly… or at least that I wouldn’t feel so hassled by the constant barrage of advertisements and news briefs. (Also, this is my usual election-time message to my readers: Go out and vote! Vote wisely and perform your civic duty!)
- Quote of the day (from St. Thomas Aquinas):
The things that we love tell us what we are.
