Well, hello everyone!
Here we are in September...is everyone as shocked as I am? Weren't we just packing away the things from LAST Halloween? Oh...wait...mine are still in totes in the back hallway...hehe, nevermind.
I took the entire month of August off from blogging to work on Camp NaNoWriMo, and guess what? ::points over to the "winner" banner on the sidebar:: WOO HOO!! I'm trying not to talk about it and celebrate TOO much because, frankly, 50,000 words isn't enough, and my novel is FAR from being finishes. And yes, I'm a superstitious writer who thinks that talking about something that isn't done is just BEGGING for the Muse to turn back into the bitch she really is. (It's a term of endearment, love, it really is. Good Muse. ::petpet::)
But now, the blog is back in business, and with a beautiful autumn layout done by the lovely FreyjaSilver. Let's play catch-up, shall we? Here's my top 3 events from Absent August:
1. I have my natural haircolor. Well, as natural as you can get when it comes out of a box. It's odd, though. People aren't recognizing me because my hair isn't bright, ha!
2. I got into Hogwarts! Pottermore, anyway. I'm in Gryffindor, which shocked the heck out of me, honestly. I figured Ravenclaw, but I'm not going to turn away from the scarlet and gold.
3. I'm training for a 5k. The actual event benefits a breast cancer foundation and will be run on Oct. 8.
What did I miss with you? Tell me in the comments!
So, I guess I have a few more readers than I did when I left? WOW. I'm shocked and honoured that little ol' me somehow garnered your attention! Thanks so much! I should probably give you the little head's up (if you haven't figured it out already), I'm...pretty outspoken. I say what I mean, mean what I say, and I'm not a big fan of sugarcoating my opinion. In short, I'm probably going to piss some of you off sooner or later. Not intentionally, it just happens. When that inevitable day happens, know that I LOVE debate and discussions, so never, EVER, shy away from adding dissenting opinions in comments! It's cool, I promise.
