I'm not going to be on IM this month. Or Yahoo Messenger. Or even LJ, that much.

I've unfriended the nanowrimo community because I just don't have time to peruse five thousand posts where people are outlining their plots, whining about their problems, etc. I feel for their pain and cheer their progress, but I don't have the time to read about it.

I only thought up my opening line in the shower this morning, but it's better than doing it sitting in front of my computer tonight.

My USB keychain is going to be getting a workout this month.

And, it's All Saints Day. Dia de Muertos. Shout-outs to my Nana and Tata, Gramma Peg, the recently departed Stuart Bennett, Tio Roberto, Grandpa Joe, and all those who have passed over this year. You are missed and loved.

Van y vienen
Y las ves pasar,
Andan por ahi, andan por alla,
Son los muertos. Que felices estan!

Happy November, everyone.

Which write-ins are you planning to go to this month? Have you decided?

I shall be attending the Thursday night Coffee Society write-ins.

Coolio-- one reason I didn't schedule any Santa Cruz things on Thursdays is so I can make it to CS! :)

yay. it'll be nice to see you there. :)

and, I totally understand with the nanowrimo community. I only occasionally skim to see if there might be something interesting. but, I don't have that interest. ;) and there rarely is.

Happy November - we'll still be around when you can look up again.

Sounds good. I think I'll do the same (unfriending nanowrimo, that is).

Yesterday evening I left the two irc channels I've been almost continuously on for the past 7 years. I'll live without that much realtime communication for a month. They were all turning into political minutia anyway.

I could never handle LJ communities that were that high traffic anyway, even other times of the year.

High traffic I can handle - it's when the traffic is all the LJ equivalent of SUVs (big, ugly and inconsiderate of others' space) that I get impatient.

I hear you loud and clear. I've got so much on my plate this month with the novel (and augmenting the previous two installments) that I'm likely to do the same. Of couse, I've been off those other venues for quite some time.

As for the first line, primo! It rolls from there...

Roll on!
