While I'm Thinking About It

Plus. "Reformation Day" is a real church thing, and therefore a better excuse for a kid's party than any "harvest festival" could ever be.

I'm done with the political-type posts for awhile. I probably didn't change anyone's mind with my semi-coherent rantings, and I know I get turned off when somebody hits the same point over and OVER AND OVER AGAIN even when it becomes mind-numbingly obvious to any rational, objective, outsider that opinions have calcified on all sides and everybody's personally invested to the point where trying to find the slightest bit of common ground would be tantamount to an admission of guilt or, even worse, inadequacy.

Speaking of which, thanks for keeping it civil next door at the shoutbox. You have no idea how much I appreciate that.

I'd like to thank you all for sticking with me through this vampire mini-epic that interrupted the main story for the past month. I know I had fun with it, so much so that I've actually got a buffer built up for the first time since 2002. And I hope you had fun with it, too. It was a change of pace from using "Halloween Story" time to advance the time travel arc, but since I've got that at the forefront right now, it felt right to do something completely different. Plus, taking that month actually helps the scheduling for the rest of the story.

I don't know what I'll be doing for next October yet, but there are more Bobs out there.

Meanwhile, Saturday is the official kick-off for the NaNoWriMo. I'm attempting it this year, and not like I did last year with the fifty drawings counting. All signed up and everything. I have several ideas kicking around in my head, and none of them are related to TRU-Life Adventures in any way, shape, or form. Not going to be bookstore-inspired, either, though there was far too much material there to leave untapped forever.
