Bet you weren't expecting two posts in one day from me now where you? *grins*
It's Spring! The apricot tree is blossoming like crazy and is covered in honey bees. The seeds are sprouting, the farmers are planting, and my allergies are in full swing. Yep Spring is here finally. Hello warm days and cool nights. Hello to soon being able to sleep with the window open and fall asleep to the sounds of the night animals.
There's something about Spring that makes one want to start anew. At first I looked at all the things I wanted to do, to start, to accomplish at the beginning of the year and was getting down on myself for not having done much if any thing. But then I told myself to knock it off, and I can start my year anytime I damn well please! January 1st is just a day on the calendar, it doesn't have to be when I start a new year. I can be fiscal if I want to damn it!
That being said, I'm excited that 21 Secrets has started...and O.M.G.!!! I won a spot!! This will be my first time taking classes in 21 Secrets with so many fabulous artists and teachers.
Also today starts CampNaNoWriMo. It's like NaNo but not. This time around you can set your own word count goal. I've seen some set at 25k, others at 50k. I set mine at 30k simply because it's easy to calculate that I would need 1,000 words a day to win. We're 14 hours in and I've not started one word outside of these two blog posts. But that's okay. I'm not fretting yet. I'm being a panster, I have no idea what I'm going to write. I see a lot of people are doing fan fiction, screenplays, short stories, etc. I kind of think mine is somewhere between a fan fiction and original work. My setting I think might be the Ruins of Lordaeron. But, in my mind it's expanded somewhat from what one might know of it.
So here's to starting anew.
