You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

What's up? - Week 1

It’s that time of year where I have so much going on but nothing to really say.  So instead of a regular blog this week, I’m letting you know what’s up in the life of a writer, aka me.

1.  NANO – As you should know, I am set to begin.  Just waiting, and waiting for the November 1st start date.  If anyone else is doing nano and wants to add me to their buddy list, you can find me under:  Ctnyrene. 

2.  It’s Halloween Week. Yes, most people celebrate the DAY or the Beggar’s night, but I celebrate the week.  I love this week.  Horror movies galore on tv.  Gearing up for beggar’s night.  Getting pumpkins ready and costumes complete.  This is the best week, EVER!  No really, it is.

3.  Pregnant women.  Is it just me, or are they everywhere lately?  I don’t mean the one cute, about ready to pop woman you see at the mall.  I mean they are everywhere right now.  I was at a birthday party over the weekend and there were 4 of them.  4!  At the same party! I happened to be forced to the mall last weekend and everywhere I turned was one.  It’s not that I mind, I happen to enjoy the big bellies and the memories they induce, but really.  Everywhere.  I did a quick google search, and apparently, as the last winter was long and cold, we are expecting a record number of babies this fall.  Hahaha.  Apparently it’s not me.  They really are everywhere.  Good luck, mama’s.  Wishing you all well in the coming months.

4.  Leaves.  They look so pretty falling to the ground.  They sway and twirl and lift and drop, as they make their lazy way on the wind.  Then they land with all their bazillion friends and wait for me or my husband to come along and pick them up by the wheel barrel full.  I hate them.  I know it’s not nice to hate, but seriously, I hate them.  When and if we move, I will be making sure the next house does not have 8 mature (read huge) trees in just our front yard, and especially not Silver Maples.  I wont even mention the back yard. 

What’s up people?  Anything exciting going on with you?  Expect more of these types of blogs in the coming weeks.  NANO…remember?  


  1. 1. I'll be lucky if I ever finish the short story I'm working on.

    2. The best part about Halloween is that I don't have to endure an obligatory family dinner.

    3. Great, like there aren't enough people on the planet already.

    4. Leaves are still better than neighbours.


  2. I'm still debating NaNo. I do need to write and I will be writing, but whether I'll be doing NaNo officially I haven't decided yet.

  3. I won't be doing Nano but doing the PiBoldMo for the first time. Goodluck with Nano! I think you're right about all the pregnant women as I'm seeing them all over the place too. As long as it doesn't rub off on me, I'm ok with it though!
