No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year, despite my fervent protests for the past, well, forever, that I'm not a writer, I'm just a reader. My two best reading buddies are doing it and were discussing it, and an idea came to me, and I decided to go for it! I've got two local friends who are participating, along with a bunch of Nesties, and I'm seriously so excited about my story. I've been studying the Snowflake Method and getting started on my outlining/plotting all week.
The other thing making me happy this week is the Harry Potter movies. I watched The Sorcerer's Stone last week and I've got The Chamber of Secrets ready to watch this weekend. I'm reading the books and loving them and watching the movies as soon as I finish each book. They are so cute so far - although I know they get deeper later on.
