Since it is November now, NaNoWriMo is on full swing. It’s day 2 and I have a little over 7k words on my document! Yay for that! I’ve also ordered myself the NaNoWriMo hoodie I’ve been drooling at for two years now… Finally! (It’s all about the little things, trust me on this… )
Falling Into Place is now on Dreamspinner’s Coming Soon page. The release date is November 30th, so you can reward yourself with it once all the work is done. Or something. I don’t really need excuses to buy and read books…. *cough*
Winter! It’s coming. Too fast to my liking! Only early November and we have snow. Several inches of it. Now, that might be fine in general, I’m a Finn, we’re used to snow, but if this doesn’t melt soon, I might go crazy! I hate this sloshy wet part of late autumn/early winter. I don’t want to go outside to slip and slide around the yard! Nevermind going for a walk…. *grumbles* Realistically I know the snow won’t stick yet, but I can’t wait for the mess it makes our yard to clear a little.
On other news, I did go to keep my dad company the other day while he was “rabbit hunting”. I’m using the term “hunting” loosely here, he prefers to sit and listen to the dog bark while running after the rabbits instead of shooting the critters. Oh he does shoot one or two every fall, but that’s kind of minor compared to most who hunt rabbits. And yes, rabbit hunting is a popular thing here in Finland, in case you were wondering. We even have our own hound dog breed here for it.
Anyway, I was with dad and the dog out there and I went on a long walk, ending up at someone’s property (summer cabin, and the someone is a person my dad knows, so it was fine, heh) and since it was on a lakeshore, I went to their little dock to listen to the ice. See, when the lake starts to freeze, the shores are the first to go, obviously, and with how the weather was, there were bits of broken off ice clinking together with the frozen solid part of the shoreline. It was such a pretty sound! Ice music, my mom called it. That’s where the photograph is from in this post. I hope I could add the sound to it!
Contest, I believe I mentioned a contest…. Oh yes! Since FIP is coming out soon, I was thinking about holding a contest! Problem is, I’m not quite sure what kind… Any suggestions?
