As most of you are aware by now, I follow a Pagan spiritual path. Today (August 1st) is Lammas – the early harvest – considered the 1st of the harvesting sabbats.
Tonight I am going to celebrate solitary as I always do. I will be giving thanks for all the wonderful things that have happened lately as well as give thanks for the not so wonderful things. Because, deep down in my soul, I know those things did not work out for the better 🙂
August is also the second Camp Nanowrimo and I am participating. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it takes place in November. NaNoWriMo also has a Script Frenzy in April and this year 2 Camp NaNos (June and August). They also host a Young Writers NaNo during November as well!
So what is NaNoWriMo? Well, basically you spend 30 days writing your fiction novel from scratch — 50,000 words! OMG and is that a LOT of words! A trend that I have been seeing over the last few years is nonfiction writing. These people are called NaNoRebels because they are not sticking within the bounds of what NaNo started out doing! But I am glad these rebels have started this trend because this month I AM a NaNoRebel!
My 50,000 words are going to be composed of blog posts, an e-book, several reports and hopefully my signature product! And I believe I will actually “win” this month’s challenge!
Here we go AGAIN! I know! But I did already say this would happen again … and I knew it would be soon!
So what is this redesign?
It involves a new banner — which also means redoing FB and Twitter as well 😛 And some other surprises, too! Here’s a sneak peek 🙂
Just know that August is the start of GREAT THINGS TO COME for me, my family and for Blogging w/ Gypsy! It’s an exciting time! It means fall is around the corner as well! I love fall — it’s my favorite time of year!
Do you have any big changes you are preparing to start moving into the last half of the year?
