The thermometer hit 50 degrees last night.
I am a happy camper. Fall is easily my favorite season, for the following reasons:
1. It's cool outside. So much cooler than summer. Crisp in the shade, warm in the sun. What more can I ask?
1a. It's cool outside.
1b. It's cool outside.
1c. Can you tell that I love it being cool outside?
2. Fall has, quite frankly, the best holidays (except for Easter): Halloween and Thanksgiving. For these holidays, my crazy relatives come visit, and we have a wonderful time.
And finally, 3: Fall is a time for new starts, and I've decided to try something new. For November 2015, I'm doing Nanowrimo. I'm participating under the name ARuvidich; please add me as your NaNo buddy!
I've chosen to write an idea that's been floating in my mind for a while now. At least, I thought it was only a while; when I checked my notebook, it's been two years since I first conceived the idea. It's time this got written. So far it has the working title The Winter Court. It's your average tale about the farmer who realizes he's a prince, and his uncle has stolen the throne. But in the middle of a terrible war, is it morally acceptable to steal the throne back? Although I've had the idea forever, it took a lot of its shape and themes from my philosophy class this summer. I'm ready to write.
There was going to be more to this post, but it'll have to wait, because it's late, I'm tired, and I get to read out loud to my mom for a while before bed. I'll conclude by saying that something special is happening in five days! I won't say too much... but there's excitement ahead!
