Okay, to begin with I would like to cheer on participants in: NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, Art Everyday Month (ArEvMo?), and my very own NaWriAnMo (National Write Anything Month.) *waves pom poms*
And speaking of NaWriAnMo…well, as many of you may know, my preferred baseball team won the World Series today. This is, of course, fabulous…but it does rather get in the way of writing, you know? I mean, on the one hand I really want to go out and have some celebratory nummies, but on the other hand this is my designated month to write-and-be-no-fun…
What did I do? Well, I put on my team hat and went out…but I brought my notebook and pen. Best of both worlds, right? (TGI Friday’s wasn’t too bad with the noise, by the way, except for this one guy at the bar. Dude.)
What have I been doing on the writing front today? Honestly, mostly just this post (which counts, by the way), but I do have a poem in the works. Fear not! Once I figure out which word I want to use instead of “lurking,” I think it will all come together.
And now, on to some far more important news:
I AM GOING TO BE AN AUNTIE!
That’s right, Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, my little sister is pregnant. I’m so glad that I can finally share this with you all. I’ve been wanting to shout the news from the rooftops. The baby is due in April, which would make it a Rabbit and either an Aries or a Taurus…whatever that means.
Today is a day of celebration. Sister Mine is starting a family and I’m preparing to embark on my career as a spoiling auntie. Oh, yes!
Let the party begin!
