Stress? What Stress.....

Am I crazy or did I really sign up for my first NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)?  As if I don't have enough on my plate! I have been very neglectful of my reading of late due to reading overload for my 'History of England before 1700' class.  My midterm is Friday (yuck, the day after my birthday) so I'm cramming for it too (isn't procrastination just lovely).  I was also struggling with a College Algebra class (I'm talking sweating blood here) that I have since dropped.  I have determined that I cannot take a math class online so will take it at a later date...on campus.  I have also decided to participate in Dewey's 24 hour Read-A-Thon.  Still have to come up with my list of reads.  Hope I can overlap with the RIP Challenge as I'm behind on that as well.  I've also joined Bella's (A Bibliophile's Bookshelf) 101 Best Fantasy Challenge, but at least that goes for a whole year! Should be manageable, huh?  I've got a blog tour coming up for Random Magic by Sasha Soren...will be posting the schedule later.  I've got a review of Frank Beddor's Seeing Redd in the works and I'm reading and reviewing his newest book, Arch Enemy.  I'll also be doing an interview with Mr. Beddor (hopefully).  With my Christmas Reading Challenge starting on Thanksgiving and with Christmas being my most busy time of year AND with the recent decision to transfer my Christmas MySpace page to a Christmas blog, it's just going to get worse! Still...I shall prevail, as I thrive on deadlines (I guess I really am crazy)!

In honor of my birthday tomorrow (October 15), I decided to host my first giveaway.  It's going to be a book from my own very crowded shelves so be sure to stop by and enter!

Bear with me people...there is always a light at the end of the tunnel =o)

And, as always, Happy Reading!



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I did my first NaNoWriMo last year and I remember thinking, "Am I an insane?" I managed to finish in two weeks!

    I'm doing it again this year, and I'm still freaking out and this time I actually have my story planned out.

  2. WOW!! You are busy. I had thought of doing the NaNoWriMo but thought I will wait till next year. I have just started really writing here about a year ago and well, I hate to say it, it has gone to the wayside as of lately. I have ideas for stories and it takes me a while to work out the details (longer than one month). So I think I will give myself a year to practice up and maybe just maybe next year join in this fun. But Best of luck to you in your fun!

  3. Congrats on this. I've been toying with the idea of trying it.
