So, quitting the big bang seems to have been a good move. I feel more relaxed becuase i'm not constantly thinking about how I need to work on that story. The downside is that I haven't really touched it either. Maybe I just needed a little distance. I'll get back to it soon enough.

I have been enjoying doing other things though, like some garden work that desperately needed to be done. I started reading this other book (the latest one in a series that's taken me like a year to read). I grabbed a slab of foamboard we had lying around and started plotting out details for each book of my Penny series. I also picked up the first draft of last year's nanowrimo story, looked at it and then set it back down. haha.

I also got sucked back into ancestry because I found an obituary for my g-g-grandfather's sister which listed their parent's names. YAY! they had parents! parents who's names I can read! other than that I know nothing about them, nor can I seem to find any info on them. oh the frustration. I hope to find something eventually, but it may involve going home and heading to the library where I will need to sift through stacks of microfilm, going crosseyed in the process. I can't say I'm looking forward to that. why can't everything be catalogued and searchable online RIGHT NOW?? :(

My final writing class is next tuesday. It's been fun, and worthwhile. It's been nice hearing how everyone has improved since the beginning of the class. I look forward to utilizing the information I learned.

Well, I should eat something. Have a nice weekend.

I think I'm going to give NanoWriMo a shot this year. We'll see how it goes.

i've never done nano even though it seems to be an interesting challenge. i'm usually swamped with school at that time and cant justify spending the time writing.

i'd love to do ancestry but i'm kind of in your spot. i cant get past my great grand parents.
