Halloween Week 2010 & NaNoWriMo: Day One

What a week! What a day! I have absolute writer’s ache all over. I wrote 4 sessions and got a grand total of 3,639 words, a photo adventure with my pal Megan, took some polaroids for Polaroid Week & did a little tidying after the festivities of yesterday. I’m so exhausted and sleepy and ill feeling, actually. I hope tomorrow is less overwhelming and I get to play video games, at some point.

I finished up my week of Halloween Self Portraits!

Day Five – Flapper

get your vile soul dry-cleaned
Day Six – Devil in a tutu

Day Seven – Halloween Witch

We had a great Halloween. We got 165 trick or treaters, beating our previous high from last year, 149. We carved pumpkins and I put together quite a spread of vegetables and eggless eggrolls to snack on.


3639 / 50000 words. 7% done!

Halloween Week 2010

Yup! I haven’t posted here since last December. In October I get this creative burst. ¬†It’s a little slow this year, for various reasons, but it’s here. It usually starts with Halloween week, I gather together a few costume concepts and shoot one a day the week leading up to Halloween.

This is what I have so far this year:

Day one – Eli from Let the Right One In

Day two – Zombie Tourist

Day three – Spooky Spectre

i grow so weary of the sound of screams...
Day four – Scarecrow

Then, of course, comes NaNoWriMo and November. I manage to update here almost every day, it goes very well and I have high hopes of continuing through December, and then, I just don’t. Will I get high hopes again this year? Of course! We’ll just have to wait and see if I follow through.

In other NaNoWriMo news, I made a twitter to update in 140 characters or less incessantly throughout NaNoWriMo, little victories and setbacks as they happen! Please check it out @wigglewriterly
