Don't Forget..

October 30th (US Time) is your last day to nominate your favorite blogs in the Homeschool Blogging Awards. There's some great blogs out there that would be fun to see in the 2010 HSB Awards Contest so don't forget to nominate them! A blog can't be eligible until they've been nominated something like 5 or 6 times in the same category!

November 1st marks the start of NaNoWriMo! Which means there's going to be some crazy mad typing, planning, and most likely a whole lot of writers block happening here. There's been much excitement as I tick off the days until November 1st, but I can't seem to convince Morgan to join me. Such a shame, because he can weave a great tale! In fact, so can Jayden. Kids can sign up for NaNoWriMo too, but they sign up at the NaNoWriMo Young Writer's Website! Honestly, I think the Dare Machine over there is super awesome! I've been tempted to take some of those funny dares a few times.. Either way, Morgan just doesn't feel writing a story is worth it for a paper prize. That's right, I had him hooked until I told him the prize was a paper certificate he could print out.

As a side note, you can actually sign up for NaNoWriMo at any time, but the 50,000 word contest is only open for the month of November. Your start date is based on your location, which means I'm starting on November 1st Australia time which is equivalent to October 31st American time. Have I totally confused you yet?
