I am participating in Nanowrimo this year. And I know I am supposed to come to the table with nothing more than an outline of my novel. Which is fine since I sort of scratched my first chapter anyway. I had some inspiration last night and I was writing notes while poor Bob-o was trying to sleep.
I have a lot of books to review and 50,000 words to write in November. I guess I'll be DVRing most of my TV.

What have I been doing?

I haven't written a post in almost a month. So what have I been doing?
Well, I am working on chapter 1 of my YA novel. Yes, just chapter 1. I am a slooowwww writer. I've been reading everything and anything. I just finished Boy Toy by Barry Lyga which was totally excellent; Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott which was totally disturbing; and Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause which was totally not interesting me so I returned it after a few chapters.
I am writing book reviews and watching Season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
My novel writing workshop at the community college will be cancelled because only two people signed up for the class! So now I am just going to have to motivate my own ass.
Oh, and I'm dressing up as a "fanpire" for Halloween.
And my teens are doing a Twilight cart for Pimp My Bookcart contest which I can't refer to by name for fear board members and the like will whine about the use of the word pimp.
That's been my October thus far.
