Eek. Life and my innate laziness kept me away from the blog for far too long. The monthly posting of sites I find interesting hasn’t been updated in what seems like forever.
So, without further delay, here’s part 1 of what I’ve been doing online lately. Warning – no theme or rhyme/reason here.
NaNoWriMo is getting close. Essentially, it’s a challenge for yourself, a contest where the only prize is finishing. You write a novel in November. Start on 11/1 and finish on 11/30. Novel is defined as 50,000 words. I did this last year and won. Okay, I wrote over 60,000 words so I met the requirements for winning, but I didn’t finish the story and haven’t touched it since. Maybe one day. Not sure what I’m writing this year, but I’ll be blogging about it as a distraction from actually doing it. Why not join me?
My attention has been on the insanity of writing a novel in 30 days so I haven’t blogged lately. Word count updates for the novel can be seen in the widgets on the left of the main page, Facebook and Twitter (follow small_pond). The story of the novel won’t be wrapped up in 50,000 words so here’s hoping I churn out over 5K a day or keep writing through December and into the future.
In the meantime, here are some pics of what else has been going on. Notice no pictures of books appear. Despite my growing pile of review copies, the time isn’t there this month to read and review. Besides, one of them may require me to buy a fiddle
On to the photos …
I ask because mine is telling me to buy, buy, buy these strangely alluring Star Wars flash drives.
Looks like series 1 has sold out. Boba Fett may win my alliance. After all, his helmet cap reveals his human face.
But the Wicket one is just cute.
God, I’m such a geek. But they could be incredibly useful. And they come in 1, 2, 4 and 8 GB capacity.
