A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words

This is the letter you get at 40,000 words. It’s incredibly encouraging, for me at least. What’s especially funny though: I dyed my hair purple today for the first time in like four-ish months and the next scene I’m about the embark on literally is an awkward dinner.

The universe has opened up and screamed, “Ashley, finish this novel!”

I’m writing this on Monday night, but I’ll post on Tuesday. I’m hoping that I can poop out a fairly large number of words that day and possibly get another chunk written out in the car on Wednesday? Maybe I’ll even hand write some stuff and type it up that night. Anyway, we’re getting close, Dear Reader!

Blogoween Day 25 – Witchcrafting We–Thursday: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

blogoween

No Vacancy podcast today because I’m taking a little break from the serial this week while we move, but I do have yesterday’s video ready for today, so heck yeah! I did a little baking in my brand new kitchen that doesn’t have a fridge yet, so that was a lot of fun.

On a side note: I can’t believe Blogoween is almost over! I’ve kinda been checked out this past week and not creating the quality of stuff that I’d like, so this weekend is going to be nose to the grindstone type stuff. I still need to NaNo prep, visit a Halloween store (I haven’t been to one yet this season! What the heck??”), and get my actual Halloween costume done. The season’s gone by too fast!

A Question For You (seriously, please comment)

Let’s do a creative exercise, shall we? This is a game I like to play with Husband on occasion, but I’ve elaborated here a lot. You don’t have to post your answers, but by god would I love it if you did.

Tell me about yourself. Not current dimensional timeline you. Tell me about you in dimension 104-D where alternate reality you is a pop* superstar. I want to know the following:

Your stage name or band name (or both!):
You music sounds like a mix between these two artists:
Instrument/s played (voice counts):
First Single:
World tour theme:
Compilation album title:
Name of another famous person you’re rumored to have hooked up with:
Name of the musician you do a Christmas duet with AND the song:
Name of the film or TV show (can be fictional, but please elaborate) you inexplicably guest star in and the role you play:
Your favorite candle scent:
That time you fucked up but everyone forgave you for it because you’re so damn awesome:

*Pop = popular, not pop music per se, BUT IT CAN BE.
