I've been neglecting this blog something terrible of late because I was busy with wedding prep. Don't feel bad though - I've been neglecting pretty much everything else as well (my poor house is an absolute wreck!)
So now I'm married (yeah!)
Thank heavens society has reached a point where people don't look at one funny when told the bride didn't change her name!
Once we get our formal pics back from the photographer I'll be submitting the full wedding story to The Offbeat Bride. Until then I'll gloss over the lovely day we had.
Apart from the chilly, icky weather it really was a wonderful day full of friends and family and food!
So what plans do I have post-nuptials?
Well, I'm going to do NaNoWriMo again this year! (Look me up under GwendolynWilkins).
Last year I didn't want to touch "The Kai'us Planet" as a potential NaNo project. This year I can think of nothing else I'd rather do!
So that's happening.
I already have a vague outline sketched out and some other helpful resource material written down; but I have a feeling I'm just going to pants the damned thing (like I always have). I mean I've written it from start to finish at least five times - I'm pretty sure I know how the story goes!
Still, as I revisit particular scenes in my head I'm continually appalled at all the blaring plot holes I come across. In fact I don't think I've hit upon a single scene that I haven't found a major issue that will need to be addressed in the NaNo re-write. (Hmm...maybe I should do a write-up pointing out all these plot holes and my plan for closing them up...)
While I wait for the starting bell for NaNo to ding on November 1st, I've promised my business partner that I'd work on inventory this month so we'll be all set and ready to go for our Christmas season craft fairs. (Time to plug our website and etsy pages!!)
So those are the immediate plans.
Though the wedding ate up a fair amount of my time for the past couple months, not much has changed in its aftermath. We had no intention of doing a honeymoon straight away. The current game plan is taking that fabled road trip through the Rocky Mountains, hitting all the National Parks we can along the way.
Ah, glorious travel!
I'm still enjoying Karate to no end and am still planning on trying for my next rank in May of next year. We'll see how that goes - a lot of improvements in kicking needs to happen between now and then though!
I'm going to try to be a little more participatory over here on the blog.
There's always random musings floating around in the ol' noggin and no doubt a few of those will grace these pixels on occasion.
Thanks for sticking around and here's to hoping there's more to come!
