Oh my god, it's November.

How did this happen?!? HOW?!?

Crazy. But it's here now. Which means all the NaNo stuff has begun. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers' Month), NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month), and so on. There's one for crochet, one for journalling, and one for blogging.

Of which I will be partaking.

The challenge is to blog every day for the month of November. Just like Blogtoberfest, which I forgot about until three days into the month of October. So I'll be doing NaBloPoMo.

I actually did NaNoWriMo in 2006, and I even made it to 50,000 words. But between moving, and job and apartment hunting, AND Christmas knitting (which recently suffered a semi-tragic setback), I don't think piling 50,000 words on top of all that would be the best idea. Even though I did have some really good ideas for what I could write. It kinda sucked having to put my foot down and tell myself not to do it.

But blogging I can do. And this lovely month of November just happens to start on a Sunday, so it's BOOKLOVE DAY!

I'm still just reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell and loving it just as much as I was before. It's fantastic, and it's going much faster than I expected, considering it's over 1000 pages long. To anyone who has thought about reading this book, but has been intimidated by the monstrous page-count, read it! It's such a fun read, you'll fly through it.

Granted, it helps that I am still sans job, but still. It's a good read.

I love Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell hard!

Also I am doing Nanowrimo for the first time this year. Super intimidated as well

Don't be intimidated! It's more fun than it is scary. Besides, you're used to writing with a deadline! Go Tamara, go!
