Life has been a bit busier than expected this month. The roommates and kitties and I are packing things up and getting ready to move a few exits up the road. It's very exciting because I'm in love with the balcony. It's the perfect balcony for writing! And I love that my room has a lot of windows. It's exactly the kind of place I was hoping we'd get to move into.
Unfortunately this means a lot of packing time. The worst part is that our move-in date falls in the middle of my trip home for Halloween Horror Nights. When it rains it pours, as they say. I'm so excited about this year's HHN though because they're introducing a ghost ship house. How cool is that? I hope it's good and not disappointing. You just never know which house will be the best until you check them all out. Usually the HHN ghost houses aren't as good as some of their other houses, but a couple of times they've done it very right: i.e. the house with the dolls a couple of years ago. Creepy and perfect.
On the writing front, I challenged my friend Lisa to write a story based on the premise of this Yahoo News article - Astronomers discover planet made of diamond. I gave us a month to finish it, which means I need to have it done in 3 days! As soon as I'm done with it, I'll post it here on the site so you guys can check it out and see how I did. Wish us luck!
A quick Vizcaya updated - One of the peer reviews has returned! Now I'm just waiting for the remaining two. Revision time is fast approaching!
And last but not least, everyone check out my friend's writing blog - http://www.caliconfessions.com/!
