If we were having coffee today I’d tell you that it’s been a heck of a week — actually, the past two weeks have been kind of crazy. Between midterms, occasional people being out, still training a few people, and some technological glitches in the system things were superbly busy at work.
I’d share how happy I am that the Masquerade Ball went well last week. I was thrilled that so many participated — and that so many made multi-entry stories! It was a nice challenge for me to try and mold my story around everything else, and I look forward to hosting it again next year (and have some ideas for a similar, but different event in January). Thanks to Hannah, Raevenly, Eloise (and Ronovan), JohnMarkMiller, Patricia Lynne and Allison Maruska for your contributions!! I never expected such a great turnout for my first Blog Event 🙂
I had a fun Halloween — dressed up as Dorothy for the day. Didn’t do much more than work, and was so exhausted that I don’t think I could have done much that evening even if I’d had plans, but it was fun to get to wear a costume for the day. I was rather proud of how it came together — especially since I spent most of the past few weeks thinking I’d go as Alice, but struggling to find the right costume elements.
I’d probably end up keeping coffee kind of short, since I’m doing NaNo this year and.. well… am already behind. Ended up having a great time visiting with a friend on her way through town, but it was unexpected and my “day of writing” turned into a “day of monopolizing restaurant tables and shutting down coffee shops while talking about all sorts of things.” It was lovely but…I’ve got a lot of writing to do, and characters to re-connect with.
I also need to put together some information about the “Season” events in November. NaNo dominates, but there’s a “Who’s your Hero” blog-hop tomorrow, and a Fairy Tale Blogathon the 9th through the 11th, and I’m hoping to do something around the theme of Thankfulness the 23rd through the 28th. As always, keeping busy…
How are you doing? What have you been up to this week? Did you get a lot of Trick-Or-Treaters for Halloween? Or participate in any fun parties?
