I finally started the Halloween garland that I keep talking about, and it's freaking awesome. The little characters are just so darned cute. I'll post a picture when it's done.
It was a beautiful day here. The sun was beaming, the birds were singing, and the Worm was sitting on the kitchen table staring at them intently. Bender and I went out for a little stroll this afternoon. We didn't walk as far as I'd planned (which was basically back and forth between the houses), not because of the bears, but because the temperature was much cooler than it seemed at first. I think we'll try again after dinner, all layered up this time though.
There's a pretty solid outline forming for my NaNo novel and I'm totally stoked about it. It will be interesting to see what's expelled from my brain when the goal is to simply churn out words and twist them into (hopefully) coherent sentences. My usual writing process consists of more editing than actual writing, so this should be interesting indeed.
Oh, and I looked at the lengthy story that I wrote in high school and did a half-assed word count. It's over 13,000 words of raw teenage angst, and was nowhere near complete. Since this was penned when I was only 15 years old, I had only my limited teenage life experience at my disposal (hence all the angst). I'm all grown up now, with twice as many angsty years under my belt. I am chock freakin' full of life experience. Bring on the word count!
