Day 22 of NovPAD / NaNoWriMo

Challegiing day but excited for Thanksgiving! Son has asked to be the Meister Chef tomorrow and looking forward to what deliciousness he whips up.

Hopefully the brownies will take the day off…

Today’s Writing Challnges’ prompts:

NovPAD

RLB today suggest using “(blank) Day” as the title of today’s NovPAD poem. This may end up being an elegy to my Grizzly (T-Day was always his holiday … and now Son takes up the mantle.)

Poetry Potion has a prompt of “Angels & vices” – I first read that as Angels and voices” … Might become my poem.

Mia’s Prompt for Day 22 is “distorted sounds”.

All really great prompts …

NaNoWiMo

I’ll have to pick this one up later; don’t have it with me right now …
Zentangle

I did a fun Fall tangle this morning! It features the patterns of Trimind, Bask-It, Swirly, Vega & Flovine against a background of Twenty-One. 

I hope to share a poem tomorrow.

Day 24 Guess I should title this post ….

Okay – Now that midnight has past and my fridge is full of tastry turkey (Thanks, Son!), I’ll now concede it’s Christmas in the house! Something about a full meal with the family and then board games around the table definately get me into the mood! As you could probably tell from last night’s tangling …

Day 23 Thankful for Writing Challenges

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the United States and Americans abroad! Expecially to our  brave our, defense warriors stationed away from family.

I’m not one these days for expressing my gratitude aloud these days, other than thanking  someone for a favor they have done.  The reason being= it seems a sure-fire way to lose what I appreciate having. Continue reading “Day 23 Thankful for Writing Challenges”

Day 21 – 3 weeks of NovPAD & NaNoWriMo

Spent this morning looking for my glasses; never did find them. I suspect the brownies took them & hid them. Today is also a day when physical law refuse to work for me. Those two challenges leave today being a “catch me if you can” day.

I need to spend today in my role as CC Willow, working on my online art offerings & setting up a holiday sale. So, on for today …

Day 20 of 30-Day Writing Challenges

Tech issues, so this post will be composed in stages today.

One of those days when I can’t quite get my emotions under control – so all my devices are SLIDing and in the weirdest ways (im) possible. Let’s go from phone to ‘puter now … Continue reading “Day 20 of 30-Day Writing Challenges”

Day 19 Sunday, Fun day for NovPAD and NaNoWriMo

And, yes, there will be a poem shared!

So yesterday I let procrastination limit how much I could write y’day. When I did get to Everybody Likes Pie, I was able to lose myself completely in it … for about 30 mins at a time. But then my inner domestic kept reminding me of chores I needed to do, which led to more chores needing to be done. Writers’ life, sheesh. Continue reading “Day 19 Sunday, Fun day for NovPAD and NaNoWriMo”

Day 18 of NovPAD and NaNoWriMo

I thought I already posted this… Well, here it goes.

I have set today aside for poeming & noveling. So now I have the dishes done , two loads of laundry folded and one washing, floors swept, and a lil’ Thanksgiving prep handled.

Day 15 – Halfway done with November … and a poem

Halfway there! Of course, I refer to – not word count – but time. And if you find yourself not even halfway through the poems , not even at the 25K word count  at the end of today, that’s okay… We still have another 15 days; plenty of time still to write! Continue reading “Day 15 – Halfway done with November … and a poem”

Day 14 – 2 weeks of November Challenges

Still trying to catch up from last week’s detour – but today makes the Two Week Mark for my four November challeges: Writer’s NovPAD, Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day, National Novel Writing Month, and my personal Zentangle-A-Day. I think any one participating in a November challenge should get real-time points for just sticking with it! Tomorrow makes our half-way point … Continue reading “Day 14 – 2 weeks of November Challenges”

Day 13 Sharing a NovPAD poem, Calling

It’s Monday – Which for me  is one of the days fully scheduled, so I’m running today …

I usually have a theme in mind before a PAD challenge ensues – but this year my mind felt no pull towards a particular subject – So I thought I would then see what theme will develop through the month … and one has starting with Day 1.  Let me share my current draft … Continue reading “Day 13 Sharing a NovPAD poem, Calling”
