It’s almost time for Halloween.
Almost time for Nanowrimo.
Almost time for Frankenstorm.
“What’s Frankenstorm?” you may ask. No, it’s not the title of my Nano book, it’s a crazy storm that’s coming up the East coast of the US right now. Evidently a hurricane is meeting a cold front for the first time in history and nobody knows what’s going to happen. From the looks of it? Rain and wind. A lot of both.
I, for my part, am stuck in a beautiful Bed and Breakfast, on vacation. The B and B is smack on the inland track of the storm. Nothing like Southern Victorian decor, cable tv, popcorn, and a Keurig to keep me satisfied, though.
The plan for today? Blog, nap, watch HGTV, do a little Nano plotting, play a new board game with my hubby (called “Elder Sign”- it’s a co-op card game based off of Arkham Horror, for you gamer nerds out there), read some of the book I’m critiquing for The Club (oh yeah, I just used our new name in a blog post. Now it’s fo’ real), drink coffee, and eat chocolate.
This, my friends, is the definition of vacation.
Come back to me in a week or two and I will be pulling my hair out, crying about messed-up plotlines, and hoping I get to eat turkey on Thanksgiving.
Bring it on, NaNoWriMo.
Bring. It. On.
PS- My Nano writing buddy name is Laurabirdd. Add me!
