Lessons from NaNoWriMo

Lesson 1 from my first NaNoWriMo: Never let your close friends read the story during November, if they’re critical about it you will think about their words to much and lose your mojo.

Who โ€“ or What โ€“ in the Whoniverse Would You Be?

Good question! And you can find out on BBC America, Doctor Who Extras. I’m can’t believe I’m just now seeing this! I need to check the site more often…

Oh, and apparently I’m the TARDIS:

Your result: Ta da! You are THE TARDIS

You are a creative soul and more than a little eccentric. You might say your relentless zest for life makes you BIGGER on the INSIDE! Impulsive and curious, you lead the Doctor where he needs to go and not necessarily where he wants to go.ย You’re full of wanderlust, a romantic at heart and irresistibly sexy!

Beware – your passion for raw adventure can make you forgetful. Please call home from time to time!

I am NOT squeeing like a fangirl!! But seriously, isn’t this sooooo cool?????!!!! And such a perfect result since the sweater I’m knitting for myself is going to be decorated up to look like the TARDIS ๐Ÿ™‚ And thank goodness I’m not a Dalek, I love the Daleks (they’re so cute!) but that would be a terrible result to get!

New Strings – chapter 3

Shannon blinked blearily, “Ugh” she groaned, sitting up and looking at the worried faces of Don and Hilary.
“What happened to you?” asked Hilary, eyeing Shannon critically before handing her a glass of water.
“I…” Shannon was interrupted by Don’s wife who came in the front door, pulling Deputy Royce Linden with her “I found him” she announced, turning abruptly she pushed through the swinging doors that led back to the kitchen and came back with a plain bagel for Shannon and three cups of coffee, then she grabbed her husband by the arm and lead him into the kitchen.
“So what’s going on” asked Royce, taking off his hat and sitting down.
The coffee was forgotten as Shannon told what little she knew and Hilary’s eyes had grown as large as saucers in the quick time that Shannon took to finish.
“Huh” grunted Royce, he leaned back in his seat and thought for a few minutes before saying, “I’m going to get to the station and get some guys, then we’ll go to your house and take a look around, in the meantime you should stay around town” He stood and left quickly, leaving Shannon and Hilary to start sipping their coffee and stare at each other, Shannon caved first and said in exasperation, “What?”
“You were out of it for nearly 5 minutes, you were shot at in your own home and your fiancรฉ has disappeared” said Hilary rapidly, “I’m not going to ask if you are okay, ’cause I’m sure you’re not but… I am going to ask what you plan to do now, because we both know Royce won’t find those men anytime soon and a search would take more men than the Sheriff’s department has”
“Well what can I do?” asked Shannon, beginning to feel rather hopeless.
Hilary shrugged helplessly but before she could say anything Shannon sprang from her seat, “It’s them” she whispered, pointing out the window at two men, one who was limping badly.
“Move!” Hilary said, pushing Shannon into the kitchen, “Don, Shannon and I need to borrow your car”
Don just nodded and threw her the keys, “Good luck” he said.

Halloween haul

This little sweetie and a bag of candy ended up making my whole Halloween (and I didn’t even have to go trick or treating) But now I have to figure out a good name for my little bat
(apparently his name is supposed to be “Batkin”, but seriously?)
