NANOWRIMO IS COMING: The Final Days

So here we are, Wrimos. It’s Hallowe’en (happy holiday! I’m probably at work while you read this, lol) and we are mere hours away from the first of November and the beginning of the crazy journey that is the National Novel Writing Month. Are you ready? Have you prepared enough, have your girded your pants enough, have you stockpiled enough random treats to last you a month locked away in your office?

I will admit, as soon as I found out that the app had launched, I launched myself at the App Store to download it. I’ve been excited for PokéGO ever since I heard that it was being developed. I suppose I wasn’t quite expecting the huge outburst it mustered–though I seem to be one of the only ones who wasn’t surprised by the server lag. (Come on. Really?)

But still, the whole phenomenon amuses me.

I’ve been involved in several debates in regards to book life and whatnot. You’ve seen a few of them: e-books versus paper books, Kindle vs. Nook, writing in books vs. not… There’s been a bunch of them, but none has ever garnered as strong of a response as one I entered into unknowingly.

The battle of the dust jacket.
