I think I’ve finally finished editing the template, at least for now, and so this is how it’ll stay until at least the beginning of December. So I hope if you’re reading this that you enjoy the new template!

Coming up…

In November I’ll be joining the rest of the crazies that attempt NaNoWriMo every year. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a yearly event “National Novel Writing Month” and there’s a word count a writer should try hitting every day to complete on time. So far the people I’ve mentioned it to have been either already doing it, or have no clue or interest in trying it out.

If anyone would like to add me as a writing buddy my nickname, of course, is Bunny. I was pretty shocked it wasn’t already taken but mayhaps the writers try for something more serious or some such, and you all know just how serious I generally am.

I’m trying out the snowflake method of writing. To sum it up, you start out with a sentence to sum up your novel that’s fifteen words, then expand that to a paragraph, etc, etc. So the snowflake gets a new points to it. So far I’m only to the mudder-feekin’ paragraph, the next step is a rather long and hard one, and since we’ll be starting Saturday I really have to get to working on it.

Right now…

I’m currently in Texas still with Wesley, staying longer than planned because his car needed a new engine (ouch!). Thankfully we should be on the road wednesday in the early morning, but that doesn’t leave me much time for writing since I’m fairly sure the drive + typing will get me sick.

His parents are the nicest people I’ve ever met, it’s clear where Wesley got his sweet nature from, and they’ve been the MOST hospitable hosts. We’ve played cards for a few nights in a row, and dominos for one, and just generally enjoyed each other’s company. It’s been a long while since I had a really nice, relaxing vacation but I really am looking forward to getting home though. 

Unfortunately I’ll be missing my mom’s (and Mr. Kitty’s) departure for Florida. They leave on tuesday morning but such is life.  I have a feeling if I’d been home my mom would have tried to guilt me in to going with her so this could be a good thing anyway.



Design header picture done.

Managing to find nice colors for the template.

Uploading gravatar for comment avatars.

Do the sidebar widgets.

Try to get all the odd green bars changed to teal-yish.

Change the “category” and “comment” bubble icons.

Change the sidebar place holders.

Finish preparing for NaNoWriMo. 🙁

Bat Bridge

Tomorrow Wesley and I will be going to the Congress Avenue Bridge to see the 1.5 million bats that emerge every day at dusk.

I did a little more to the template, it’s obviously not completely finished yet but we’re getting there.

I wish I’d done more for preparing for NaNo but I guess that’s what Wednesday, Thursday, and perhaps some of Friday will be for.


Road Trip

I leave for Texas tomorrow morning and won’t be back until next Saturday.  I’ll have my cell on me, though, and will happily take any calls for anyone that might feel so inclined to call.
