Writing Memo

Image from www.nanowrimo.org

    There is no Lolita 52 post today.  Instead I am going to continue on my quest to finish NaNoWriMo.  I took time off from my day job to Visit my best friend for Thanksgiving, which was great.  This has given me some time to really get cracking at my writing.  Lots of time to write.  I have written over ten thousand words since thanksgiving and I feel pretty good about it.  It has also been nice to have a friend to give me prompts and stuff.

    Next Saturday is International Lolita Day.  I am hoping I can go out with the community and have some fun frilling around.  Alas It is back to the noveling with me.

Tata for now,
Lilian

    Thanksgiving can be a great holiday.  It is a day set aside to be with our families and be grateful for what we have.  Some people I know have been critical of Thanksgiving because they think we should be grateful year round rather than for one day out of the year.  And they have a point.  We should be grateful year round.  It's a great thing. Today I'd like to talk about being thankful.  It is a very healthy practice.  Taking account of what we are thankful for can brighten our moods and help us stay positive in everyday situations as well as less than ideal situations.  Gratitude can be a tool for us to move forward in our goals and life.  Here are 5 ideas and activities for practicing thankfulness all year round.

Things I Love Thursday: Twinkle, Twinkle


    This week has felt a bit like an up hill climb with my goals and my writing.  I started doing some of the things I love again though and it really helps with the stress level.  I pulled out my violin and was astonished that it had been so long since I had practiced that I couldn't make it all the way through Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star by memory.  I pulled out the piece I sang through it.  Bam I could play the rest by memory again.  I love music.  Here are some of the other happy things from my week.

Writing: Dealing With Stress

    Writing among many things has been rather difficult lately.  Between a crazy work schedule at my day job, health issues, and other stresses it has been trying.  I have had some successes with my writing for this years NaNoWriMo and some great bursts of enthusiasm.  I am still aiming to win.  I am still aiming to finish.  I can't lose sight of my goal, yet it is so easy to succumb to stress and escapism.

Things I Love Thursday: Gloomy Weather Is The Best To Write To


    If you don't already know I love The Addams Family.  So the cool weather has produced some fabulously gloomy days.  The sound of rain is great to sleep to and to write to.  It also encourages me not to go out on my bicycle.  The weather has been one of the lovely things I have loved this week.  Here are some more.

November Try-its


    October though it had many fun times was a very rough and stressful month.  There were never quite enough resources to do what I wanted and the stress often affected my creativity and decision making.  As such there are some adjustments to make.
