NaNoWriMo 2014: And So It Begins…

IMG_0604.PNGThose of you who have followed me for a while know that I took on the National Novel Writing Month challenge in 2011 (epic fail) and 2012 (near win). Last year with my changing jobs in the beginning of November I thought it was a bad idea to try.

Not so this year. I’m geared up and ready to go!

While I am going for the 50,000 words in the month, I will most likely be working on several projects rather than a single novel. Still 50k of new words on ‘paper’.

This year is going to go great. To add extra cool to it, my eldest daughter is taking part under the auspices of the Young Writer’s Program.

So any of you guys going to give NaNoWriMo a try?

Fall Leaves

Well it’s the now the second weekend in October and Autumn has definitely arrived here in central Iowa. Cool days and down right Cold nights, with frost on the ground in the morning. Signs are showing that winter is on its way.

The leaves are turning and yesterday we took the kids out to rake the yard (and jump in the piles). We are still hoping to fit a family trip to one of the local pumpkin farms before the season ends. We also plan on going to the Night Eyes “trick or treating” event at our local zoo.

What Fall traditions do you all have?
