What hath November wrought?

I’ve really worked myself into a whirlwind for November.  First, I thought about signing up for NaNoWriMo, even though I’ve never written fiction in my life.  (Just not that creative.)  Then I find NaBloPoMo, which is exactly what I need.  So I announce I’m not going to do NaNoWriMo, and my friend Natalie (a published novelist, I might add), shames me into it.  Ok, the shaming was in jest, but still, I did feel responsible.  🙂  So now I’ve started some half-assed attempt, but it’s really going to be crap.  But at least I’ll be there to cheer Natalie and jade_kadir on.

I rented a Frankenstein movie to watch on Halloween.  But by the time I’d finished rewatching True Blood (so I can write my review for SciFi Chicks) and Supernatural (except the final 2 scenes, which irritated me), and watched Life on Mars, it was relatively late.  Still, I put the movie in the DVD player, and find the bloody thing is 3 hours long! (I think it must have been a television mini-series.) Out of all the Frankenstein movies available, I picked this one because it’s purported to be the closest to the book.  Anyway, I didn’t watch any of the story last night, but started it this afternoon.  Michael Sarrazin plays “the creature,” so it’s not very scary.  At least not yet.  I don’t know if it’ll become more frightful, since I’ve never read the book.  Guess I’ll try to finish watching it tonight.

  1. I just want you to have fun. I will forever feel guilty for guilting you back into it if you don’t enjoy yourself at least a little bit.

    My FIL’s cousin does NaNo, too, and he told me about a friend who was going through a tough time and she journaled her way through NaNo. That was her official NaNo book. She ended up writing, like, 150,000 words. So you could even do something like that!
