2. So, yeah...let's not talk about my NaNoWriMo progress this week, okay? Despite my best efforts to outline, my story took an unexpected turn pretty much right away, rendering pretty much all of my planning useless. And now I'm back to pantsing, which is so NOT my strength. I struggle every time I sit down to work because I have no idea where these characters are going and what they are doing. *sigh*
This means that it will lead to brilliance, right? RIGHT?
(Just smile and nod at me, please)
(Hopefully you guys are doing better than I am)
3. I'm off work today in honor of Veteran's Day. A day off couldn't come at a better time. I need to sleep and cuddle with the dog and catch up on NaNoWriMo and sleep some more and cuddle some more and write some more. It's rainy here today, so it's perfect. Then I go back to work for a week and then have a week off for Thanksgiving. More sleeping! More doggy cuddling! More catching up! Days off are so glorious.
4. I'm also very happy today to honor my grandfather, a veteran (and POW) of WWII, and my dad, a veteran of Vietnam. Thank you to all of the veterans out there for all you have done. <3
5. Last week I asked you guys to do me a huge favor and vote for my friend Claire in American Airlines / American Way Magazine's Road Warrior contest.
I'm just using this contest as an excuse to post cute pictures of me and Claire
Well, the voting is still on! If you haven't had a chance to vote yet, could you please just take a minute and vote for her? You do have to enter some info, but it only takes a second, and with a vote you are entered to win 100,000 miles on American. Claire is the only female finalist, she's all kinds of awesome, and she needs to WIN!
Thank you all so much! xoxo
