Sunday Post #16: NaNoWriMo Prep + Updates


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Greetings everyone and happy Sunday! How has everyone’s past week been? Things have been great this week–busy, but great. I’ve actually been relatively social this week in attending a going away dinner party for a coworker and meeting up with a friend for some NaNoWriMo prep!

That’s right, friends. I am finally participating in National Novel Writing Month! I’ve said I was going to for the last five years at least and never did but it feels like a good time to try it.

I am currently posting this while I am out of town… I am seeing the Dalai Lama speak today on Secular Ethics in Our Time as part of Birmingham Human Rights Week!

Currently Reading/Listening

I have been listening to The Invention of Wings on audiobook for about a week or so now. I have to say that I am really enjoying it! Jenna Lamia narrates the voice of Sarah Grimke (as well as many others) and she is positively amazing. I can even tell a difference when Sarah has grown up a bit.

I am nearly finished and this story might be my favorite of the year so far.

New On My Shelf

I recently snagged a copy of Writer’s Guide to Character Traits which is a completely awesome book for writing! Plus, I picked up a $2 copy of Dracula and a $3 copy of Revolutionary Road with some of my remaining store credit from 2nd & Charles. :)

Is anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo??

    1. I know that feeling! That is exactly why I have never participated. But, I figured hey– I may not have the time to devote to it but when will I ever have “enough” time to do what I want? Probably never! So, if anything it will be a month long creative writing exercise to loosen the word flow for the future. :)
