October/November 2021

snowmen

Well, to say things have been busy, would be an understatement, but fortunately (for the most part) October and November have been a lot of fun. I hope you all had a spooky season full of horror movies aplenty, sweet treats, and Halloween fun as well!

Here’s some of the highlights of what my October was like:

Mr. Moth and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary, as well as 6 years of being a couple. ❤ 

I completed about half of the Corpestober art challenge prompts for the month.

At work, I dressed up as Coraline for our fun Halloween festivities. It ended up being cold and rainy the day of the work Halloween party, so I was thankful that part of my costume involved a rain coat. 😛

Halloween weekend we went to Hell. (Hell, Michigan that is.) We went with Mrs. and Mr. Cupcakes & Machetes and met up with a couple of their friends for a hellishly fun game of putt putt, an amazing lunch, and just some general shenanigans and adventuring around the little town. It was such a good time. The day before that (Devil’s Night) we spent going to multiple cider mills, carving pumpkins, and watching scary movies. It was an absolutely amazing Halloween weekend with absolutely amazing friends. ❤

We also got our booster shots of the vaccine at my work, so that was nice to get that done so easily.

The whole month of October I took a break from writing and just focused on fun stuff, which meant getting to play video games, too. Something I love, but haven’t been able to devote much time to for a while. (Too many dang hobbies!) Mr. Moth got me the game Lost in Random and I absolutely loved it. ❤ 

So far in November my main focus has been NaNoWriMo, aaaand I have a buddy read of The Time Machine by H.G. Wells with C&M for Science Fiction month. I’ll probably be fairly scarce around here the next 3 weeks or so since I’m really trying to reach that 50,000 word count for the NaNoWriMo writing challenge this month. I’m a little behind where I want to be, but still hopeful I can make up for it. 🙂 I won’t beat myself up if I don’t make the 50,000 words I’m aiming for. I have a lot to do in preparation of the holidays, Mr. Moth’s birthday, and plenty other things to keep me busy, and I’ll still be co-hosting Sugar and Scream with C&M so we’ll see what I can do with NaNoWriMo this year.

Did anyone else watch the new Netflix show based off League of Legends called Arcane? Mr. Moth and I watched the first 3 episodes and it’s sooo gooooood! 😀

Anywho, I’m off to try to slay the NaNoWriMo beast. Hopefully I’ll have something successful to report when I return. Have a great November, everyone! ❤ ❤ ❤ Hoping to return to a somewhat normal blogging schedule in December. 🙂

  1. Even if you don’t make the NanoWrimo goal, you’ve accomplished SO much on your book this year, you can’t be disappointed. I’m incredibly proud of you.
    October really was a great month outside of work. Halloween was a ghoulish delight. One for the record books.
    I’m planning on packing a lot of reading into our trip up north. (If it happens, my dad had an exposure at work and is waiting on test results.) I’ve barely celebrated Sci-Fi month yet so I’m taking the remaining copies of Saga that I haven’t read and our buddy read with me to make up for it. 🙂

  2. I was just wondering, why is she doing NaNoWriMo when I know she just finished a whole manuscript?? Then I remembered C&M telling me that you’re doing revisions in November. How exciting! I have second-hand excitement from C&M about your book.

    This year, I am legit excited for all of the holidays (uhh, I don’t include Columbus Day). But yeah, I’m just exciting about everything, don’t even care. I’m already singing Mariah Carey’s song in my head. I haven’t done Christmas or Thanksgiving in two years. I’m here for it.

  3. Aww congrats on the one year anniversary. It was our ten year anniversary yesterday. Glad you had a fun Halloween weekend. I took the girls trick or treating but unfortunately Australians don’t get into it too much. I watched several horror movies through the whole month of October.

  4. I saw you were like 77% there with NaNo! I’m doing it, too, but with a fifth of the word count lol. If I can get 10k words out for this WIP I’ll be happy. I’ve been trying for at least three years.

    That game looks like Coraline and Tim Burton’s love child. I LOVE the aesthetic, and I just added Arcane to my Netflix list. I had a 98% match so I’m surprised they didn’t recommend it. I consistently see League of Legends artwork and I love it, but it’s not a game I’ve ever played.
