Unspoken Hiatus

Yeah, I assume you guys have gotten the picture by now. I'm kinda taking a break from blogging during November because of NaNoWriMo. I'll be doing a few little updates now and then, but that's about it. I just really need to focus on getting this first draft done.

Speaking of that, I'm currently more than 9000 (OVER 9000!!!) words into my novel and its getting harder to write. But I've surpassed my daily word count goal every day so far. I only have one class today, so I'm going to work on my book even more. I do better writing at night than I do in the mornings though. I plan on taking some time to do word sprints today though, which should help me get ahead.

In other news, Seven is going okay. I'm not cheating as much this week as I did the first week. Mainly because I have less chance to. Mom reminded me yesterday that we're almost half way through with the first month! This will probably have been the hardest month for both of us. Not that the other months will be easy by any means. And I feel like God keeps pointing out that I need to be finding a way to meet people's needs and minister to them, but I really don't know how to do that. I can't just hop in the car and go find homeless people at the moment. Not to mention, doing it on my own wouldn't be safe. Oh well. He has a plan, and I'll figure it out eventually.

On the business front, I've been doing decently, particularly since Elsa joined the princess gang. I've done one party and I have another one on the 15th. I've also got those weekends in Old Town Spring coming up in December. Then I've got vendor events for Jamberry and Lizzie's Luxuries. I've been prepping gift jars for sale at the next ones. People liked them and bought all the ones I had ready at the Tarkington Round Up. I'm waiting for my bulk orders of stuff to come in the mail though. Today I have to order a container of 72 pairs of nail clippers. I ordered cuticle pushers and nail files yesterday. I just need money in the bank before I can order everything else. I'm also going to be offering a version of the gift jars on my website, I'm going to try and put them up today or tomorrow.

I think that's basically everything that's going on in my life right now. Everything that y'all need to know about anyway. I'll see about updating you again next week. Now I'm off to do homework and writing and business stuff.
