31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes & Other News

five minute friday, free writes,

Can you believe it, tomorrow is October 1st! Crazy, right? But it really is going to be October in just a few hours. I'm going to try something new this year and join in with Kate and several of the others from our Five minute Friday writing group and join in Kate's 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes challenge. Will I get them all done? I hope so! No promises on what time of day they will post, so you will just have to check in often ... or make it easy on yourself and subscribe by email (that little white box in the right sidebar under our blog button picture of the zinnia) and get it delivered to your inbox with ease!

So what else is going on in October? Actually, quite a bit. I'm looking forward to attending two different writing conferences during the month, and Arlene is joining in the Inktober challenge. It is a cool art challenge to draw something everyday, either from your own inspiration, or by using the word prompts. The idea is to draw something new every day... from ink. Yesterday we went by Hobby Lobby so she could buy herself a new mixed media/ sketch book and some black ink pens. I've already asked, and  the answer is no, she will not be sharing her drawings here. At least right now she is not planning to share any of them because as she put it, she is new to ink drawing, and these are for herself. She usually draws with pencil. Do not be worried, she is continuing her Books With Bean series, as well as her hand-lettered songs. 

Sounds like October is going to be busy here on the blog! I'll be having a giveaway soon for a copy of Design Your Day by Claire Diaz-Ortiz that I reviewed the end of August. The folks at Moody Publishing sent me a second copy to bless one of our readers with. 

Fall is definitely here, with cool mornings, and warm afternoons. Great weather for football, hiking, and roasting s'mores! Get outside and enjoy the days with your family. :)
