Wow, I cannot believe that it is November already! The month of October (August and September as well) has simply flown by. Where did it go? Is it just me, or are the years seeming to pass more quickly? Haha, now I sound dreadfully old.
Anyway, it’s November now, and I’m already starting to feel like it should be Christmas. I had Christmas songs stuck in my head all of yesterday and I felt like pulling out all the Christmas decorations, and putting up Christmas lights and making Christmas cookies… oh well, soon enough!
For now, it’s November, and it’s also National Novel Writing Month! Which means, that these next 30 days will be a mad scramble of brainstorming, flying fingers, machine-gun-typing, writing, writing, and more writing in an insane attempt to write 50,000 words of a novel before 11:59 pm November 30th. I know that I’m going to be very busy, so I probably won’t be able to reach the full 50,000 words, but much as I hate starting something knowing I probably won’t be able to finish it, I think I’m going to do it anyway! At the very least, it will give me some incentive to sit down and force my brain to do some writing on my newest story!
Anyway, I was looking through my bookcase the other day, attempting to clean some things out, when I discovered an old binder full of old pictures I had drawn! It was pretty interesting looking back over things I had drawn several years ago. I’m certainly not the best artist in the world. I’m always amazed when I see what other people can do, my pictures are really simple in comparison. Still, I do like to draw, and I haven’t drawn in a really long time, so I’ll probably start doing some of that again! Haha, along with everything else I have to do.
Lots of the pictures I found were actually pencil sketches of characters from Wayne Thomas Batson’s Door Within Trilogy (a great Christian allegory/fantasy series for young teens). So, I’ll post some of them just for fun!
