1. Halloween! I have really not worked on my banana slug costume at all. Oh well, I do have a backup costume: a dead person. I would dress the way I always do, but with a little fake blood. I'd ring the doorbell and then lie in front of the door looking dead. When they got freaked out and started to call 911, or went back inside (depending on the effectiveness of my trick), I would get up and say "Trick or treat!"
2. NaNoWriMo... my plot is not ready, I feel like I don't like my plot, and I'm unimaginably busy even without trying to write over 600 words a day. I am worried that I will quit NaNo a week in. On the other hand, I never get out my longer ideas if I don't have the pressure of NaNoWriMo. So what to do, what to do? Here is my NaNoWriMo book's "cover picture" that I made. (It's going to be about some kids doing NaNoWriMo.)
