My favorite earrings to wear during October! Today is the day I prep for NaNoWriMo and try to stay out of the candy until the Trick or Treaters have come! The little ones provide oodles of inspiration for my characters. And since I work well to deadline, I always do NaNo. I have yet to write 50,000 words in a month, but I always get further along in my writing. How about you? Do you work well to deadline? Or does something like NaNo make you shudder in horror?

How do you celebrate the holiday? Or do you?

Love the earrings :)

I do work well to deadline, but what idiot chose November for NaNo? Thanksgiving followed by major holidays. Madness.

Or maybe it's me.

Anyway, have fun with it!

Perhaps, Carol, they figured we're all swamped and overwhelmed anyway, so writing might be a welcome break?!

We had a great time with the kids. And our neighbor, who dressed as the Mad Hatter a la Johnny Depp.
I was supposed to be prepping for NaNo, but finished up an editing assignment.
I find the deadline worthwhile, but agree with Carol that the timing isn't great.
