Can't believe how close it's getting to NaNoWriMo!!!

Session for Monday planned, a few more newbies recruited, we have a regional theme for the year, and busy making things for the goody bags!

Also managed to get a few folk from the local home ed group to get their kids involved in the YWP. W00T!

Sounds like a plan to me.

"You know what we should do? Everyone who was born before the end of 2012 should all pretend the apocalypse actually happened in December. Like we should all have our war stories and pretend to be veterans and tell our kids and grand kids stories about when we defeated the zombies. And we should write about it in history textbooks and say that people who deny that it ever happened just had their minds wiped by the aliens."

Stolen from a friend on FB, who stole it from Tumblr.

Think we can safely say that Vicky drunk too much wine last night.

Still, it was a great evening filled with family who I rarely get to see apart from weddings and funerals. Bride looked amazing. I didn't see much of the girls, who managed to run about with their cousinsuntil midnight.

Winging it.  But it it will be fun with lots of supernaturals, magical creatures, dark and steamy.

NaNo folk!

I'm running a session on Monday to recruit some newbies in the local area and exchange ideas about inspiration and planning your novel. Any suggestions on what to include?

Thanks! I've got the first hour of the session planned - snowflake method then writing exercise. Second half is going to be more NaNo orientated so I'll go find the ebook for some inspiration.

Soooo need to move. Random dog, some kind of staffy bulldog thing on steroids, came in our house yesterday when my brother came to visit. Today, took the girls to go abseiling and on the walk there we saw quite a brutal attack on two guys.

What would happen if everyone on earth stood as close to each other as they could and jumped, everyone landing on the ground at the same instant?

In other news. I stumbled across last year's unfinished NaNo novel the other day. Read it and went, 'Huh! That's not too bad.' Got hubby to read it who also thought it was rather good.

Now I have two novels to work on.

Story
Tagline
Mum of 3, maker of things, writer of nonsense that stays hidden, painter of miniatures.
Introduction
Mum of 3, Isher and a geek.

I love making my own stuff, from crafty things to making jams. Love being in my garden and growing veggies.

I write from time to time, but more for myself than to get published.

I have a sable border collie.

Films: At the moment my partner and I are making our way through the top 100 AFI films. I've seen most of them before, but have been enjoying rewatching _most_ of the ones I'd seen before. We seem to have a thing about watching all the films on lists, last one was the top 100 Sci-Fi films. My favourites are Labyrinth, Sunset Boulevard, Fifth Element, Cary Grant, James Stewart films, Tim Burton, Coen Brothers... I could go on.

Books: No particular genre. I tend to read more YA fiction than anything else at the moment. Favourites include The End of Mr Y, The Hunger Games, Skulduggery Pleasant, Night Watch books, anything by Neil Gaiman.

Comics: Locke and Key, Fables, Maus and so many more.

Music: Regina Spektor, Mumford and Sons, TMBG.

TV: I have to confess I don't watch a lot of TV. I do like Doctor Who, that's possibly the only one I make sure I'm up to date with. Star Trek, West Wing and the occasional British one-off series that no one else I know watches.

Make sure you buy the Scribes Anthology later in the year, not only for stories from myself and other Scribes, but Conrad Williams, Neal James and Simon Clark.
