Things are hectic. Aren’t they always? I remember (vaguely) a time when I could relax and when boredom would set in. Maybe it was a dream…

Iggy Pup dressed up for Tricks or Treats yesterday. I unfortunately didn’t assemble a costume beyond my Jack Skellington hat. Maybe next year I’ll dress up as Salvador Dali. That epic mustache, how can I resist?

Happy Halloween from Sheriff Iggy Pup

We handed out quite a bit of candy. Our surplus of over 120 Kit Kat bars disappeared in the first hour of Tricks or Treats. Iggy loved it though. He is such a little people oriented pup. The more kids that surrounded him, the happier he got. He really is my social lil furry butterfly.

I’m happy to report that I am attempting to participate in NaNoWriMo again this year. I had my Staples “eco friendly writing pad” which is sugar cane based paper and freshly sharpened Carolina Pad “TranZend” pencil ready for when I awoke this morning. Feeding Oliver takes a bit of time and I like to keep an eye on him to make sure he’s eating a good amount so I use that time as best I can. Today I started my novel.

Tonight I finished off page six of my nameless novel at 1681 words. Not too shabby. The problem is the pain of writing. I have tendinitis is both wrists. My last attempt at NaNoWriMo ended for the same reason. I didn’t have the fortitude to type 50,000 words. This year writing doesn’t appear to be much easier. Don’t think its over though, I’m prepared to mix it up. Pens, pencils, laptop, manual typewriter, stone tablet and chisel. I’m not throwing in the towel yet so hold on for the ride!

Iggy Pup

I’m off to bed. I think Iggy Pup and I have some blankets to burrow into. Be well.
