My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

Time

I can’t believe how quickly the days are going by! I didn’t even realize it’s been so long since I’ve updated…

Sad to say, I did not finish NaNo. I got about 10K written: 4K on my first attempt/project and then another 6K on the same book I’ve been working on for what seems like forever. On that topic, I can’t help but admit there are times I just don’t want to continue with that story. It doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. But I know everyone would protest and yell at me if I “trunked” it so I won’t. Yet 😛

Anyway, I really have nothing else to say. I don’t want to elaborate too much on baby happenings just because I don’t want this to turn into a “mommy blog” 🙂 I’ll mention the important things–like the fact baby’s doing good as of last week’s appointment. The nausea is still there but not as strong. That’s pretty much it. 🙂 I hope everyone else is doing well too! I’ve gotta play catch-up on everyone’s blog…

Time for a Change

I’ve had the last background forever. I wanted a new one but none of the other themes seemed to work for me. Then WordPress came up with this new one and I instantly knew it would be my blog’s theme. I think it really fits don’t you? 🙂

I may play around with some of it later but I’m really fond of it this now. Let me know what you think! And be honest–if you like the last one better I’d like to know too.

200th Post: Journey Through Time (Contest/Giveaway!)

So, it’s my 200th post! I guess I didn’t realize I was this far until well, now. And since I never celebrated the 100th post, this one will be extra special–complete with a little giveaway 🙂

It’s interesting to see how this blog has developed over the course of time. When I started it, I really had no intention of keeping it up 😛 But then I got drawn into the World of Blogging and the rest is history.

Anyway, in celebration, I’m going to giveaway a little “grab bag” of sorts to one lucky commenter, using a random number generator. The grab bag will consist most assuredly of some form of chocolate and candy AND I’ll be giving away a choice of one my favorite historical books, each from a distinctive time and place (click on the covers to see what each is about):

All you have to do is answer one question in the comments section. Are you ready?

If you could travel anywhere in the world, and in any time period, where and when would it be?

This is an especially hard question for me because I love history and choosing one time is hard. For me, it’s a tie between the first century A.D. in the Holy Land, where I’d see if I could hear Jesus preach, or early-mid Edo period Japan (sometime in the 1700s), where I could see traditional Japan, with the strict caste levels of society–from samurai to farmer, to artisan and merchant–it would be wonderful to see how each class lived.

Anyway, you all have until this Friday, the 11th, at 8PM Eastern Standard Time to answer in the comments below before I close them and choose a winner 🙂
