Happy Samhain/Halloween to all! This is a big day of the year for me, and I could not be more excited. October 31st has to be my favorite day of the year. As a pagan, its also the biggest holiday of the year. I will be busy, busy, busy too. I work today then I will go to ritual tonight, come home and watch a scary movie or two. Then I will write my first message to my Nano-ites (that’s what I’m calling the new people I’m mentoring this year), and promptly at midnight start writing.
My novel prep did not go as well as I had hoped it would. I had hoped that by today I would have character profiles and main plot points all planned out. I have a total of…..drum roll please……one character profile. Not the most impressive prep, but I’m sure I’ll manage. I will try and finish up at least a few character profiles tonight and then get the plot down as I go along. It will all work out in the end and I am very excited about this plot.
I also got sidetracked with a new story idea as well. That is why I didn’t get a lot of nano work done, I’ve been busy writing that. It’s a good one with the main character based heavily on my boyfriend, the infamous Steve. Its going to be an amazing story and I am almost disappointed that I will have to put it on hold for a month. Technically I shouldn’t have even started it until after Nano, but oh well.
Oh yes, before I forget. I did get my Nano novel from last year up on the Authonomy website. That is the site form Harper Collins I was talking about last time. I am excited about it, and hopefully this site can help me on the road to getting published. At the very least I will get a lot of alternate opinions on my work and maybe be able to improve on it.

So, stay safe tonight everyone, stay spooky and have a good time! ~Stef
