ravenela: (Brian - original story)
Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope there are candy and costumes in your future tonight. And if you live up north where Sandy hit, I hope things are getting better.

Allow me to officially announce it. I have a new job. I'm a temp part-time library assistant, and I finally have my foot in the door in the Wake County system. Pardon me while I do the happy dance. Join me if you'd like.

Also, NaNo is right around the corner (tomorrow actually), and I have a story all ready to go. I'm going to work on the merman in Charleston story that's been eating my brain all summer. I'm very excited about this story, and not just because my main male character looks like Chris Hemsworth in my head. This story is actually better planned than White Spirit or my YA Mayberry with Monsters were so I have a good feeling about this one.

Can't wait to get started.

Are you ready to Halloween and NaNo?

Revising needs to be happening now, but I wanted to take a break and let you know the good news. No, I have not found a job yet (I have several applications out, though), but I did get a spot volunteering at the local library. At least it's a step in the right direction.

This is an upswing after the blow that was not getting my public library certification (yes, you have to be licensed to answer patron's questions these days). It seems I need to take an extra collection development class. Not sure how I'm going to accomplish that, but I'll worry about it next week.

In other news, I'm more than halfway through the White Spirit rewrite. I am going to finish it, if not by October 15, then by the end of this month. Which means, I'll be free to write the merman in Charleston story that's been eating my brain since this summer for NaNo.

Oh, who's doing NaNoWriMo with me this year? I'm not playing completely by the rules this year. I'm shooting for 30,000 words in a month as opposed to 50,000. But I'm definitely joining for the camaraderie. Who's with me?

All right, back to the writing.
