Howdy, folks! It’s hard to believe we’re already 1/3 of the way through November; I feel like October is just ending! But that’s one of the ways the phrase “time flies” works: the more to do, the less you notice the weeks whizzing by. But no frets: tThere will be another November the 9th. And the 8th. And so on.
Here’s a happy hodgepodge, a merry mishmash, if you will, of November happenings:
Pandagrams! Spreading the word and looking into printing companies.
NaNoWriMo! 1 story. 30 days. 50,000 words. Can you write it? My third year going. I’m up to speed. Interested? It’s not too late to start the marathon.
Potatoes! There are lots of them in the fridge. (Yes, that’s entirely inconsequential information, but who can resist mishmashed potatoes before Thanksgiving?)
Cartoons! I applied to participate in the artists’ alley at a local anime convention in March. Consequently, I’m striving to illustrate & print my graphic short story (akin to the graphic novel/comic book) before we’re too far into 2015; that way I can offer it (and Pandagrams) for sale there, or at another one of the anime cons coming to the St. Louis area next spring.
Tutor Blog! Check out the post I wrote for the Principia College tutor/writing blog. It debunks some myths about using passive voice in writing. http://writeherewritenowwriteon.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/passive-acceptance/
Enjoy the remaining 2/3 of November!
