Nagging Novels and Pretty Pictures

I've had an idea nagging at me for some time. It started out as a "What if" scenario and has slowly developed from there. I finally had enough concrete ideas to write a summary last night, so I did.

Now I'm hoping it will leave me alone and allow me to continue working on my current WIP. However, I'm thinking I may go ahead and ditch my YA Nano idea and go for this new MG adventure in November.

You all remembered Nano is next month, right? How many of you are participating this year?

When I'm not distracted by stupid games (CURSE you Facebook!), I'm plugging away at my revisions. Still a ways to go, but I'm getting there.

I've been enjoying Robin's fall pictures on her blog these past few weeks and longing for a fall forest scene of my own. Alas, I have no forests in fall color around here (lots of evergreens though) and have been lamenting this. Today I took a REAL look around me and discovered I don't have a forest, but I DO have some beautiful fall colors right in my own yard (DUH)!

So here are some pictures.

These are my hedges out front

And my peach tree in the back is starting to change

I still wish I had a forest of fall colors to walk through, but this little bit of color will have to do for now.

 

Write on.

I won't be doing the Nano, but good luck with whichever WIP you go with. Glad you found some fall colors to enjoy.

I'll be doing NaNo Joan. And I do believe Tolk and George will be there too!

No fall colors here where I am, not yet. But not doubt they will happen.

Thanks for the encouragement, Amy. I love fall colors and one day I WILL find a fall forest to wander through . . . even if I have to plant my very own. LOL

I'm glad you're doing Nano this year, Bish! It's always better with friends. =D
