I’m participating in NaNoWriMo. I decided to just buckle down and make a decision. It should be interesting, as I really have no idea what I’ll be writing about. I have jotted down a few ideas for potential plots, but I haven’t committed to any yet. You can follow my progress here at my NaNo profile, or keep visiting me here to check my status meter.
I began reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson just in time for Halloween. I already love her descriptions and think I will continue to enjoy the book. I also had a change to begin listening to Jamaica Inn in the car yesterday. Du Maurier sure does write a good creep in Uncle Joss, doesn’t she?
Right now we’re putting the finishing touches on Halloween costumes. Maggie will be a black cat, and Dylan will be Harry Potter (again). However, since we only have the glasses and the wand, he’s going to be Harry on the run in Deathly Hallows rather than Hogwarts Harry.
