End (Halloween) & Begin (NaNo 2011)

Double trouble post! We're covering HALLOWEEN and NANOWRIMO! Halloween is all pictures, so I'm going to skip to NaNo first.

I actually did my NaNo attempt in August under Camp NaNo, but thanks to that Third Campaigner Challenge prompt, my brain started ticking. But I have no plot! No outline! No apparent direction!

But I'm doing it anyway. Alz and other people (you know who you are *cough* Lori *cough* ChristineF *cough*) talked me into it. I decided yesterday night while I was hiding from Trick-or-Treaters in the dark. Har.

TL;DR: We're doing NaNo this year! I'm kangaru and Alz is shizalent. Friend us if you will & shame us into writing!

Now, Halloween! Mostly pictures. Hope you enjoy!

Surprise Party for friend's bday
Sister's 1st pumpkin carving: R2-D2!

Halloween Weekend
Sis was Doctor Who & Alz was the TARDIS

Sis actually owns these clothes.
    
Alz made that TARDIS hoodie.

I was a snake or rather The Serpent. Fancy an apple?

Scales could've been better with more time & prep.
Halloween Day

We had a Halloween potluck at work. Guess who I dressed up as? :D
Here are a few clues. Hint: Alz wrote at length about this.

Yep, I was a FAIRY or more specifically, LAUREL! (You can't tell in the photo so much, but the entire bottom half of my dress is covered in blue flowers.)
I only eat fruit & drink Sprite!

Q4U: What were you this Halloween? OR What are you writing about for NaNo / doing instead of NaNo? (Nanowrimos, let us know your usernames & we'll buddy up!)

YAY! I'm glad you're doing NANO bwhahahaha. Let me know how it's going :D

And you guys are CUTE BEYOND WORDS. I love your costumes, especially the Tardis XDDDD

Good luck on NaNo! Let us know how it goes so we can root for you.

Love the Halloween costumes.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! OMG, first, your Laurel costume has me in stitches. The sprite is perfect.

Alz is perfect as the TARDIS, and actually, your serpent face close-up kind of reminds me of Sophie Jordan's Firelight cover. Only fancier.

Good luck NaNoing, y'all. I've got enough candy leftover from Halloween to power me all the way through November. In December I'm going to have a complete first draft, or a triple bypass, whichever comes first.

I can't believe you dressed as Laurel! LMAO!!! The scales were awesome, too.

Good luck with NANO. I'm saying I'm doing it but I don't know. Also trying to do edits on another book...

Love the Halloween pics.

Definitely doing NaNo: a YA dystopian involving faeries and a guardian angel. There are some vampires and devil spawn too. Username's dragonfang77

WooHoo!

Good luck with NaNoing!

Hey, the scale makeup turned out really great!

Good luck on NaNo. Tell us how it goes. :)

I love halloween pictures. Yes, I know, I'm a little late on this but I've had a crazy NaNo week.
Hope your NaNo goes well!
