Hiding from Halloween and starting Nanowrimo

This year, we hid from Halloween. Instead of gutting pumpkins and carving lanterns, I enjoyed an afternoon walk in Holland Park.

An afternoon trip to the movies proved good timing. The parking lot and movie theatre were quite empty for the 4:30 showing of Truth, and we returned home to discuss this interesting film over tea.

We didn't miss out on the pumpkin entirely -- I made a pumpkin curry to enjoy tomorrow.

Today is the first day of Nanowrimo, and I'm in. Have to get something down of the next novel up, no matter how rough. Deadlines are brilliant for making that happen. The first step is to sketch out a rough map of the story on tracing paper; then I crank out my first 1667 words. I'm pumped!
