There have been some requests to see a photo of my Halloween costume. Without disclaimers, here I am with my favorite redneck.
In line with the theme of "simple and inexpensive" I dressed to match the color scheme. Next year I will be a character. Maybe...
Also, the costume was supposed to be an excuse to wear this bright red lipstick I love and normally shy away from. Sadly, it didn't even show up in the picture. Go ahead and imagine it, because I was wearing it. And rocking it. And not shy at all about red lipstick.
On an entirely different note, did you know that this is National Blog Posting Month? I signed up to do National Novel Writing Month. I thought if I could throw a successful Halloween party four weeks after moving, I could certainly write a novel in a month (and unpack boxes..and deal with the ants). I should have signed up for the daily blogging instead. I totally could have blogged every day. But this novel word count requirement is madness! Madness.
I have to finish my rough draft soon. It's starting to get to the point that every time I pick up my laptop, I wonder why I started the novel in the first place. After all, I didn't need to write a novel. Now people I love and respect know I'm writing this. I know I'm writing this. So I will finish it.
It just might not happen this month.
