Autumn- a time full of warm sweaters, mugs of hot chocolate, and colorful leaves. The cool weather makes it the perfect time for long walks in the woods. Not to mention the rainy days that leave you with endless hours for reading. Something in the crisp air brings life back from the dull lazy summer days. Its a time to laugh with friends and gather round the table with family.
Like Anne (with an 'e' of course!) said...
Although all the wonderful reasons above are well...wonderful, I'm glad this world has Octobers for a very different reason. At this point in the year most of my friends are saying, "not again!" While I simply grin, pull out my pens and papers, and say, "oh, yes."
Yes, here we are again, a month away from the start of NaNoWriMo. Each time the clock ticks we get a little closer. We wait with tense excitement as the weather changes, knowing that with the change comes another battle with 50,000 words. With each new layer- a sweater, a scarf, a jacket- another character sketch, scene timeline, and story outline follows, ready to keep that novel warm. This is why I love October.
So, while the rest of the world is soaking up the autumn scene, I'm submerging myself into an equally colorful world. How are you going to enjoy your October?
