Nano November

Fall is coming so quickly. I'm not entirely sure I'm ready for it. The weather here has been gorgeous lately, low eighties and high seventies. It's been great for my running program. I'm on the second week and so far I'm handling it pretty well. I'm sore from running and that's a good thing. I took a week off because I worked a whole week. I'm enjoying running (so far), but not enough to get up at five in the morning to do it.

I'm 'doing' Nano this year. I spent most of October preparing for it. So far, I'm doing really well. I've got a loose outline of where I'm going with it. The characters are very solid and real in my head. I'm plotting out little goals for each day that will (I hope) help me keep the story moving and my writing on track. My biggest problem with nano in the last few years has been not having a solid idea of where I'm going with things.





I'm still really enjoying Arrow. I'm excited about where they're taking it. I'm hoping they don't screw it up.

The Vampires Diaries is really getting awesome. I love Elena being a vampire. I'm sort of not feeling Stefan and Elena. I know they're soulmates and all of that, but I think her and Damon are a lot more fun. I like Stefan. I just sort of prefer him with like...Caroline. I still don't like Tyler. I never really have. It's not a terribly popular opinion, I know.

One of my favorite new shows is 666 Park Avenue. It's creepy and awesome. I look forward to it every week.

The Mad Hatter in Once Upon a Time is my *favorite* character. I want there to be a lot more of him. I dont' care much one way or the other for Sebastian Stan, but Jefferson is amazing. I don't really feel a lot of pity for Regina even though we've seen how she got the way she is. The show always fascinates me the way they weave the storylines together. I'm excited that they're branching into other stories.

I'm watching a ton of other stuff, but those are the ones I really look forward to every week.



Kiddo is doing pretty well. High School football is almost over. We're eating tomatoes from our tomato plant. It took a while to get tomatoes because we had blight and then my poor plant had to be cut back. It's a bit late in the season, but I do have tomatoes. It's pretty cool. I'm optimistic about next year being better since we've got an idea of how to actually grow things.

Y'all have a great weekend and good luck with all the nano things!

who are you on nano? i joined and i have ideas! i just don't know if i'll actually find the time to sit down and write them out... i figured there was no harm in at least making the attempt, even if it goes nowhere.

i actually picked tvd back up after quitting the show towards the end of the second season. i'm seeing a lot of the elements that made me like it during the first season, and am liking vampire!elena, too. i'm liking rebekah way more than i thought i would, but i think that's also due to having liked her actress' character on H20.

we technically have tomatoes, but the deer keep eating them. :(
