A Few Things (and NaNoWriMo)

Alex's daycare is closed today, so I'm on vacation with him. We'll be leaving soon for a playdate, but in the meantime, there are a few quick things I wanted to post.

First, for the winners of my book giveaway, I mailed them out Saturday. They should arrive sometime this week; please let me know if they don't.

Second, I've received the "One Lovely Blog" three times over. Unfortunately, I don't have time at the moment to properly thank everyone who gave it to me or to pick new recipients. I'll try to get to it later this week.

Finally, if you've looked at the sidebar of my blog recently, you may have seen that I've decided to join NaNoWriMo this year. I did it back in 2007 and managed to win despite closing on a house, working full-time, and having an infant. However, writing like that was so much different from my normal style that I didn't bother doing it for the next two years. But I feel I need something like this to push me past the problems I've been having with my next project, so we'll see how I do this year. Plus, I see so many other bloggers posting about NaNoWriMo that I'd like to join in on the camaraderie. If you'd like to add me as a buddy, my username is smua. Please feel free to leave your username in the comments section so I can add you as a buddy too.

That's all I have time for now, but I have other topics on deck for the rest of the week, so come back soon!

I keep seeing everyone signing up for NaNoWriMo and it makes me want to as well. Not sure if I will though.

Anyway, good luck to you!

Enjoy your play date. I wish you great success with the NaNo thing. I am swamped with edits and can't participate.

Woo hoo! Good luck with the NaNoWriMo! I started school, so I'm not participating this year. Maybe next year! =)

Yay NaNoWriMo! I'm aandune, although that doesn't go well with ANY of my other internet personas. (Probably because it was the first, ill-conceived one.)
