Seasonal Views Calendar Contest

The theme for this year's calendar contest is Seasonal Views. Basically, make a pretty landscape picture without any sims in it. I entered January and July. I ended up winning July, but because the January winner had already won another month (and you can't be a winner twice) my second place January got bumped up in her place, and July went to it's second place winner as well. That's perfectly fine by me, I liked my January entry better!

It's Nano Time!

Ok fellow crazys! It's November again, so pick up your pens and kick it up into high gear at your keyboards.

Last year I fell prey to the holidays being in the end of the month. I have a plan for this. I'm going to use the previous year's word counts to fill in days I can't get anything written. I'm hoping that I'll be able to write enough during the early part of the month to 'finish' halfway through the month. I have about 25k from before, so I'll still be pacing the same as everyone else for the first half of the month. I still need to do 1,667 words a day. I'm already likely going to miss today and possibly Saturday because I'm still wrapping up Halloween activities, but we'll see how the weekend goes.
