It’s the first of November. Which means that it is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month).

This will be my fifth year participating in NaNoWriMo and my second with NaBloPoMo. The difference this year is that beyond a title, I absolutely have no plot, no list of characters or anything for NaNoWriMo. Which is really odd for me, because I usually have a list of characters, a thought process that I go through for getting my characters from points A to B to C. But this year, I have… nothing. Well, I made up character names when I started, and came up with a setting (local city) and a random process of how the main characters meet. It’s a lot easier to come up with psychotic characters without meaning to, I’ve realized. Which I am not sure what this says about me. I plan to get ahead (by quite a bit) by mid-week this week, as I won’t have any time for writing next week. Wish me luck?

Oh, and also with the first of November means that Halloween candy is discounted. Yay. I bought… a bag of Tootsie Rolls, a bag of Maynards candy (Fuzzy Peaches, Swedish Berries, Sour Patch Kids, Fruit Mania? No clue about the last one…), bag of caramel-green apple pops (ugh, so disgusting but I like them…) and bag of mixed candy (Mentos, Airheads and Chupa Chups). And I was relatively conservative with my candy-buying antics… At least compared to my sisters. One only bought a box of mini chocolate bars, but then my other sister… several boxes of mini chocolate bars, a few bags of mini chocolate bars and those little boxes of Smarties. We had a full shopping basket at the store and it was all of candy. The cashier asked us if we were making up for not going Trick-or-Treating the night before. Erm, yeah, pretty much.

How was your post-Halloween? Have you come down from that sugar high yet?
