I've been really bad about blogging latley. Well, really since last December. Today I decided to get into the habit of blogging regularly again. So I began trying to think of a topic to blog about on a regular basis. I haven't been able to think of a good one. So I decided that I would just force myelf to sit down Monday through Friday to blog at least two blogs. Sounds reasonable right?? I have a feeling I'll end up blogging about the random things that happen in my life, or whatever I am writing at the moment. So here I go.

Update on today.
I spent most of the day at church. Not all bad. I didn't get any writing done. I did get some good planning done with a local teacher, whose room I will be volunteering in starting on Friday. I am gearing up for Dow Garden's Christmas Walk on Saturday night when I will be playing the piano outside of the H.H. Dow home. What else happened today? I took a shower. I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher. Nothing too exciting happened today. I am going to be working in the church nursery tonight. I have bells after the church service tonight. While I was at church, I saw someone I hadn't seen in quite a while. I saw the person who took my senior pictures. I hadn't seen her in a while, but I have seen her kids fairly regularly. It was nice seeing her out and about. Signing off for today.

November in review

November is over. It's been over for a week. I did do NaNoWriMo, and I wrote over 50000 words! But I didn't finish the novel. So I have been slowly picking away at it as I set a deadline of January 1 2011 to finish it. Then I'll have to set anouther deadline for revisions.

In October I was looking for an idea to write about during NaNoWriMo. I did eventually find the idea that I would write about. What amazed me was how different the idea I wrote in November was from previous ideas I had for things I have written. The one thing that was similar to previous things I have written is that the main character is gay. But other than that, the story line and the characters were so much different. For one thing, one of the minor characters who is also gay was married to a man for several years before coming out and breaking off their marriage. Anouther thing that is so different is the fact that these characters have let me into their thoughts and feelings by letting me see their journals.
