NaNoWriMo 2016

Been gearing up for something big, scary and exciting...

My first ever NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) where you sign up and pledge to write 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. Mother did this last year with a Young Adult fiction project and I have been stymied by a lack of urgency and focus throughout 2016 so I believe this is just the thing I need. Luckily I have also found a writing program called Scrivener and it may not write the book for you but it is a powerful tool to help organize and consolidate all of your work in one place. I just love it.

It's a lot of words and I still have all my normal responsibilities and activities to manage, not to mention the Thanksgiving Holiday. But my story has been churning in my brain for over a year and it needs to be realized. The toughest thing is not to squander time or get distracted. Let's do this thing...

Sia in Seattle

Sia shone bright like a diamond in Key Arena last Thursday during the first stop of her new tour. A spectacular blend of performance art with music and a sophisticated application of cameras, screens, lighting and dance to really make you pay attention. Plus that amazing voice! Such a memorable performance by a talented artist. Wishing Sia and team a smooth and successful tour!

I'm pretty sure that's Tig Notaro there with the shiny gloves.
