Fifth of November, NaNo, and a Harp

Remember, Remember the 5th of November.

For many reasons, including, among other things:

  • Gunpowder
  • Treason
  • and
  • Plot.
  • Especially plot.
  • Plot is a good thing to have.
  • Especially during NaNo.
  • (Which is why it is bad that I do not have one…)

And, most importantly, you should remember the 5th of November…

BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE AT 8333 WORDS.

(If you’re doing NaNo, that is.)

I hit 10k last night (yay!) so that’s an update on my own NaNoWriMo doings…

No promises, considering how busy I am, but I HOPE to get a post up about Heartseeker, which is what I’m writing for NaNo, and a review for Orphan’s Song by Gillian Bronte Adams, which I’m enjoying immensely and just need to find time to finish reading and review! So if all goes well, there should hopefully be a couple posts this month.

Best of luck on your stories to those doing NaNo! And to those who are not, best of luck on your own endeavors, and in trying not to pull out your hair and scream every time somebody says “NaNoWriMo”. 😉

Also, just for fun, here’s a video of me playing (attempting to play?) “Broom of the Cowdenknowes” on a harp. (This is extra cool because I am writing about a story with a harp-playing bard in it for NaNo.)

This video was for a promotional contest, and my excuse for the mistakes is that I only pulled the harp out the night before filming it… So I hadn’t had much practice. Hope you enjoy. 🙂
