October Already?

I'm just going to go ahead and say it:

I am not much of a fan of autumn.

I know this might come out as a shocker to those of you who actually read this blog, but it's the truth. Sure, fall is fine with me. I mean, I love the fresh smell of the season change, the sight of the leaves, and, of course, Halloween. And it'll all be spectacular and awesome right now.

But then the temperatures will drop, the leaves will already have fallen, and I'll probably find myself bundled up in jackets and coats that make me feel like all uncomfortable and awkward. And knowing that I will end up hating it is why I don't like it in the first place.

I already miss spring, even though it rains way too much. Everything comes alive in the spring--or at least they begin to. That's what I love the most about it.

Pessimistic thoughts aside...October means that NaNo is less than a month away. Less than a month! I still have so much to do though--planning, outlining, brainstorming...with all that's been going on, I haven't written Shadowed since I'd started thinking of it. Horrible, I know. I'm so ashamed =P

At least I've found a nice article here on Let The Words Flow that talks about outlining new novels and such. It should help me with my NaNo somewhat this year. After all, I'm pretty new to this.

  1. I know what you mean about the cold. I hate it, dread it.

  2. It's horrible D= But apparently the temperature's going back to the 80s this week.

    That's Indiana for you. The bi-polar weather state.

  3. I live in Oklahoma, right now it's cold in the mornings and warm in the afternoons.
