What the Heck Was I Thinking??

Or maybe a better title should be.... "I Really WASN'T Thinking!"  Yeah, that's the one I should have gone with when given the chance.  

Some of my readers may have heard of this little project called NaNoWriMo. Well, in a moment of weakness stupidity insanity, I signed up.  The premises of NaNoWriMo is to spend every day (and/or waking moment night) of November putting the proverbial pen to paper on a novel.  By November 30th, you should have at least a 50,000-word novel. (Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!)

What my great American trashy novel will be about is yet to be determined.  They always say to write what you know... so look out world, I'm pouring my heart and soul into this bad boy! And if  you ever passed through my life, you might just get your fifteen minutes of fame.

Will I get to 50,000 words by November 30th? Maybe, maybe not.  But I do know that I will give it my best shot. And who knows where that will lead.  Nowhere? Somewhere? Published or not? I will hold my head up proudly and say at least I tried.

And so it begins...

My (Somewhat) Wordless Wednesday

Feels Like I'm Falling for Fall

The true and sensual beauty of Fall can be
seen in the changing colors of the leaves, 
heard in the sounds of dried twigs snapping underfoot, 
felt in the crisp wind on your face, 
tasted in warm apple cider and donuts 
and smelled in a roaring fire in the fireplace. 

But nothing revitalizes all of my senses during the Fall like these...

Writer's Block is a Pain in the...... Brain!

It's been such a long time since I've written.  What the heck is  happening to my brain? I'm beginning to think that it's turning to mush! It's been a hectic few weeks in my house. So many things going on and it's only going to get worse as the calendar marches onward. Upcoming holidays, out of control sons, the impending arrival of a new dog for the family, PTA commitments at Buddy's school, fundraisers, household responsibilities... SOMETHING'S gotta give! And I think the fall guy is my brain by default.

So if you seem me wandering around the blogosphere looking like a lost soul, please gently point my back in the direction of this blog. Maybe some stroke of inspiration will come upon me and get the creative juice flowing again.
