I feel like, literarily-speaking, at least, 2013 is turning out to be a rerun of 2006. I re-read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell this summer for the first time since 2006. I’m re-reading the Queen’s Thief Series, which I first read (scratch that—devoured!!) in 2006. And I’m currently revising my 2006 NaNoWriMo novel.
Perhaps that’s not the most amazing thing ever, but I think it’s slightly interesting. 🙂
Okay, I need to really get back to that revision…
I so love October!! No lovely autumn trees here, unfortunately, but the days are slooooowly getting cooler and the holidays are just around the corner, and my husband and I are going to Disneyland for our first anniversary next week. Life is good!
The revision is going pretty well… I haven’t actually worked on it yet this week, due to a grisly battle with a horde of ants over our kitchen yesterday, but I’m feeling encouraged and enthusiastic about it. My goal is to finish the first half by the end of the month and I THINK I can do it if I push. And I want to because…
I’m contemplating NaNoWriMo this year!! I’ve been bitten with NaNo fever and I’m not sure I can shake it. 🙂 If I do join, I’ll be continuing the novel I started writing in 2009, and therefore technically be a NaNo rebel! It’s a story that’s been in my head since the early 90s 0_o and I read the first part the other day and I desperately want to finish it because my inner thirteen-year-old self wants to read the end! I haven’t 100% committed yet, but I’m definitely leaning that way.
But at any rate, here’s my last piano student of the day, so I’d better attend to him.
Over and out. 🙂
