Stirred to Your Taste

This week’s weekend reading will be just a short greeting to wish all friends and visitors a wonderfully scary pre-Halloween weekend. These are the last days of October, which means November starts next Friday. And November means we all go NaNo, right?

Bumble has persuaded me, and he’s good at that as my readers know, to participate this year. Last year’s plans were ruined by sudden work travel, but this year I’ve tried my best to be able to stay put on the ground for November. Done work in advance, filled my pantry with soups and my freezer with meals to heat, and stocked several pounds of coffee (and just a handful of cookies). Keeping my fingers crossed.

This probably means less time to read the lovely blogs I follow and I apologize in advance. It will also mean less frequent posting on my own blog for one month. But I promise not to whine or cry about my trials and tribulations. We need to stay positive. Confident that we’ll make it to the finish line. 50,000 words. To add some motivation (read pressure) I have displayed the NaNoWriMo widget on the side bar. It will show progress, or lack of it, on a daily basis…

Anyway, that marathon starts only next Friday. Wonderfully scary. Be good now and have a suitably spooky weekend, stirred to your taste. Hugs, Tiny

  1. You got me in your corner this year tiny. If you don’t travel we will both cross that finish line. Yea! Bring it NaNo! 🙂 I was going to post some Holloween stories this week. Get those writing cells working. Oh and I need to finish my other story. Too busy to be nervous about Nano. 😉

  2. I know, thanks a million Jackie! We’ll get there 🙂 I will probably post some more too before it all starts…and then post when I can’t stand what I’ve written and need to take a break 😉 Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks a lot! I know it will be quite a challenge to juggle everything and at the same time get to 50k words that are usable… will need all the cheering I can get! But felt I should try this year 🙂

    1. Thanks Nancy! It’ll be like running half a marathon every day, effort wise, while risking to become immobile in the desk chair 🙂 I will try my best to get to the gym at least every now and then…and walking Bumble takes me out 4 times a day which I guess is better than nothing.

  3. Thought of doing NaNo this year but with the holidays coming on, and my daughter being home…ah, well…maybe next year. Good luck with 50,000!!! 🙂

    1. Thanks! It’s going to be tuff. Last year I backed off in the last minute. I had family stuff but then I also learned I had to travel for a week so that was it. Let’s see how this goes 🙂

  4. Perfect Halloween scene. Wishing you all the best to the finish line. Hoping nothing comes up this year to keep you from making it to the end. You can do it…I know you can! Hugs

Would love to hear your thoughts!
