Really Random Tuesday is a meme created by Suko at Suko's Notebook which is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.
Halloween is approaching fast and in our house it is a big deal. Roll on next Friday, when my hallway becomes a haunted mansion, my beautiful girls become evil witches, I become something out of The Witches of Eastwick and the neighbourhood children become something to be feared. I have started preparing early and bought extra decorations and music to give an eerie atmosphere. I am soooo excited. I have even had my nails painted Halloween style. Do you like my spider's webs?
We brought the girls some serious bubbles this weekend and they have been creating havoc in the garden with them.
On the bookish news, the lovely Kate Kerrigan popped over to my blog on Friday to comment on my post about Ellis Island. I was thrilled to have her visit. It turns out that Kate has her own blog and you can visit it here. It is definitely worth a visit.
I managed to finish Mockingjay over the weekend and I have to say I was rather disappointed with it. It really didn't leave me enthused at all, which is such a shame as I loved the first two books. More on that tomorrow though.
I am planning to read a lot of rather thin books over the coming month, as with NaNoWriMo coming up, I know my reading time will be slightly diminished and yet I still want to be able to review books. So books with a smaller page count will be the norm until the end of November.
My writing this month has really taking a good turn. I am so involved in the story that I struggle to pull myself away from the computer. I am definitely on target to finish the first draft by the end of September. I am presently fleshing out the story idea for November with the help of my lovely hubby. He will only help if I make sure I credit him with helping me with the idea if I ever get it published. He is so easily pleased.
Well that is all for my really random Tuesday post. Do pop over to Suko's site to see what she has been up to?
