Happy Nanoo Nanoo Day!

It's the 1st November and we all know what that means. Nanoo Nanoo starts today (that's NaNoWriMo to the lay person). While I would never attempt something so foolish as trying to write a novel, I'm generally in awe of anyone who gives it a shot. My writing creativity reached it's peak in Higher English when I was 17, when I wrote an essay about my gran's funeral. I don't mean to toot my own horn or anything, but it did make everyone who read it cry. I believe the words "touching" and "heartwarming" were used. That's all I'm saying. ;)

Anyway, good luck to all of my friends who are participating in this mad month. I'll be the ever faithful cheerleader, trying to boost morale when inspiration starts to flag (which I'm sure won't happen!). I'm sure you'll all do wonderfully!

My sister and nephews are doing well. Katie was really shaken when I went home, but she seems to be over the worst of it. She hasn't driven again yet, but she's talking about doing it before the end of the week (she needs to drive for work). She was pretty much back to her usual self by the time I left yesterday, if a slightly battered and bruised version. The kids are great. It doesn't seem to have affected Lewis at all, and Kieran doesn't even remember the accident! He thinks he broke his arm by falling over! My wee sweethearts! It was so good to see them.

Finally, I think this'll probably be my last entry at blogger. I'm really starting to miss Blurty. It's like homesickness. My mouse keeps hovering over the update button on my user information page when I want to make a new entry. And I feel more able to make little frivolous posts on Blurty when I have a little something to say. When I make a post on Blogger, I always feel like it needs to have some substance (not that you'd guess that from reading my entries!). I'll probably change my mind again in six months, but I'll try not to. I'll miss my pretty blog, with all my customisations, but I think I'm a Blurty girl at heart.

Anyway, I think most of you followed me over from Blurty, but just in case, you can find me at http://www.blurty.com/users/eileen.

Thank you! It's good that the guys are doing well after their experience.

And, personally speaking, big yays for a potential return to Blurty. ;)

BOOOOOOOOO for you leaving blogger! Blurty is always fickle with me... and she eats my comments quite often. But, alas... if you go there, I'll read ya there.

YAAAAAAAAY! I missed you at Blurty. Welcome back. :-)

And I'm glad everyone is doing okay after the accidents.

Min said...

I'll be glad to see you back at Blurty too. :-)

(But I have to warn you, email notification for comments have been broken for, like, three weeks. I have no freaking clue when/if they will fix it.)

Hello Eileen, sorry I've been absent of late, I'm so glad that your sister and nephews are okay, that must have been very upsetting. I don't know what the blurty thing is, I click on the link and it pulls me to the same website so I hope you get this comment! Prend soin.

Eileen said...

Sorry Leone, my faulty html. I think I've fixed the link now.
