Quick thing one - I just wanted to make sure that as many people as possible know about NaNoWriMo. Why? Because it's awesome. It stands for National Novel Writing Month and the aim is for everyone involved to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. It's great in the way it encourages you to just knuckle down and write something and I found it really helped stir my creative juices last year. This year I'm doing it despite going on two holidays and starting a really intensive course on the 18th. Eek!
If you have any interesting in writing, I suggest you give it a go. Even though it's already the 5th, it's not too late. I started on the 10th last year and managed it, and even if you don't reach the word count, it will still have been fun. Check it out at www.nanowrimo.org
Quick thing two - Remember, remember the fifth of November! Hope everyone is going to see some awesome fireworks tonight, even if it's just out the window while you stay snug and warm. What I really want to do is offer a quick safety warning. I'm sure you don't need me to nurdle on about fire safety. No! This is about the danger of toffee apples! You may laugh, but I've got a centimetre long cut on my tongue from the toffee apple I had earlier and it ended up mainly tasting of blood. I'm sure there's a horror film in there somewhere.
Be safe, have fun, eat your toffee apples responsibly!
