blogginrecapheader.jpgIt’s Sunday, the beginning of a new week so that means it’s time for a Bloggin’ Recap. A feature inspired by A Bookish Heart.

In the Real World

The cold snap finally hit California which means snuggly clothes and hot chocolate for this gal. My play has been going very well, every day it seems to get better and better and I am confident it will be a great show. For those of you that don’t know I have decided to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, which is a writing challenge where the goal is to hit 50,000 words by the end of November.

I’ve even decided to start leaving early for work so that I can sit in the diner across the street to write. When I’m home the internet usually tempts me so if I go somewhere without a Wi-Fi connection, I can write to my heart’s content.
