Thankful thought for the night…

Leave a comment

And yep, it’s more NaNoWriMo goodness! 😀 I really really love writing. It’s a good stress reliever, having a bad day, write it out. Having a good day, write it out. Plus the bonus to all the writing, I’ve noticed a difference in my non-creative writing. What I mean is, I find other ways to do my documentation-still correctly, but using better words/terms. My language is clearer and cleaner. Why blah blah blah, yadda yadda, when I can get it down more succinctly!  One of my favorite prof’s in college asked us what is a good word for use? A lot of people me included stated, utilize! It’s also a good word, but sometimes use is the best word. Stop working harder, work smarter. And this writing for fun is helping me work smarter too. Ooooh, well played NaNoWriMo, well played! LOL 😀
So update on where I am! I started this morning with close to two hundred before I started work, yep, still going in early to maintain my writing. 😀 I’m such a dork! But I’m cute and awesome too. 😛 hee hee
and tonight the stats are:
Words Written Today: 2,629
Target Word Count: 50,000
Target Average Words Per Day: 1,667
Total Words Written: 35,606
Words Remaining: 14,394 YES! I’m under 20,000 to write! And still going strong! You feel me Nano? LOL I’m cracking myself up, I’ve done this twice and I’ve never reached this close. I’m strong to the finish cause I’m a drinking my coffee… yeah yeah. I don’t have any spinach. Sounds good, though!
I hope ya’ll crack up or giggle a bit when reading some of my blogs. Laughter is good medicine.
Have a lovely night, stay warm and sweet dreams from cold cold brrrr North Central Indiana!
xoxo

you know- early thankful thought

It’s going to be a good day, when; you get to work early, my friend gave me an egg mcmuffin for breakfast, the coffee is already on, and you’ve already written close to 200 words! LOL 😀

Have a beautiful day! 😀 and stay warm, it’s cold out there! Well it is here!

xoxo

Who does one love?
The other one?
The reflect in the mirror-
The eyes of the other.

True love is a feeling
Out

Love Annie Leibovitz-such breathtaking and beautiful photography! 😀

the CITIZENS of FASHION

American actress Amy Adams graces the cover of Vogue US December 2014 issue. She also stars along Tim Burton in a story shot by Annie Leibovitz and styled by Grace Coddington . 

In an interview for the magazine the 40-year-old actress talks about her movie career, her role as Lois Lane in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and her fears.

On being fired from a TV show: “There was a TV show called Grosse Pointe that I was fired from… I probably sucked. I never got a straight answer. It was my second year in L.A., and I got hired for two pilots and got fired from both of them. The producer called me and said, ‘It’s just not working.’ And I was like, ‘I know. I could tell.’”

On not connecting with her Big Eyes role five years ago: “I was in a place where I just…

Occult Day 2014
November 18, 2014 in the World
Occult Day takes place on November 18, 2014. The occult is “knowledge of the hidden”. In common English usage, occult refers to “knowledge of the paranormal”, as opposed to “knowledge of the measurable”, usually referred to as science.
The term is sometimes taken to mean knowledge that “is meant only for certain people” or that “must be kept hidden”, but for most practising occultists it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences. The terms esoteric and arcane have very similar meanings, and in most contexts the three terms are interchangeable.
Occult also describes a number of magical organizations or orders, the teachings and practices taught by them, and to a large body of current and historical literature and spiritual philosophy related to this subject.
