Two things that have no relation whatsoever.

Good news! My thumb is all healed. I cut it while carving my freaking awesome Halloween pumpkin.
Which, by the way, DID win an award for the contest.
Prizes were a big tin of popcorn, some Halloween candy, and 50 bucks off our next month's rent! NICE!

Guess what? I'm doing NaNoWriMo, which is short for National Novel Writing Month.
50,000 words in 30 days. That's a little less than 2,000 words a day if I don't write on Sundays.
I'm a bit stoked.
And a little in over my head.
Is it cheating if I use large portions from the previous, unfinished draft of the novel that I'm going to write in 30 days?
Hopefully not.
Cuz somethings are better the first time.

Since I've been stalking Chapterhouse Lane and such, I wondered if you would participate in NaNoWriMo. Best of luck to you!

My thumb is now sporting a cut which is also Halloween related. I cut it trying to hide candy from Hubby. :)

Congrats on the WIN!

And good luck with the NaNoWriMo. I'm shooting for 600 words because that's a much more practical number for me this month. (I'm shooting for a handmade, homemade Christmas. I've got a lot of making to do.)
