Listening to - The Fantastic Mr. Fox soundtrack, "For Emma" and "Skinny Love" by Bon Iver, and "San Francisco" by FoxygenEnjoying - Writing again! I have been meaning to get back to writing for a number of years, but have been so uninspired. I have a difficult time conjuring up ideas, but I recently went to a writing workshop at a library and was so inspired. There were plenty of gems and secrets about writing to learn; I can't stop referring back to the notes I took. As some of you may know, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is coming up in November. I wanted to do it last year, but never did, so I'm hoping that this year I will be more successful. Hopefully I will decided on an idea by next week. Have any of you ever done NaNoWriMo? What was the hardest part? I'm worried about juggling school and writing, but I can always do with a good time-management test.
Reading - The Book Thief, just finishing The Maze Runner series, and about to start the Harry Potter series
Loving - Early mornings. I woke up to the sound of pouring rain and a soft glow on my wall of a porch light across the street. It was six o' clock, and perfectly dark and silent (aside from the rain). I usually wake up at seven, but I loved the early morning so much that here I am again, writing a blog post at six am. Mornings are very wonderful things.
What have all of my wonderful readers been up to while I've taken an unplanned blog break? I moved houses and have been doing piles of homework. I forgot how exciting moving is - and how difficult unpacking can be. Can I confide in you to keep a secret? I'm still not completely unpacked...shh!
Halloween is coming up very soon - if you dress up, what are you planning for your costume? I had originally planned to be Felicity Fox from Fantastic Mr. Fox, but I couldn't find a dress anywhere or the right color of fur for a mask. So I am currently deciding between Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service and Suzy's raven costume from Moonrise Kingdom.
I hope that you all have a wonderful week and enjoy this most splendid season!
