Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!

First off, I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays, was able to spend time with their families, and received gifts or goodies to make them smile. As usual, I kept busy with my various “Christmases” between my family and my fiancée’s family. Two visits on his side (his Dad’s side and his Mom’s side) and three visits on my side (my parents at our home, my Dad’s side, and my Mom’s side). It was good seeing our families and spending time with them. But now the holiday season is winding down and making way for…the New Year!

Wow! 2010 has just flown by! So many things have happened and changed over this year, and not just in my life but in the world as a whole. And like many bloggers today, my entry will be about my “New Year’s Resolutions.” I typical don’t make resolutions merely because I often make them too unachievable or forget about them completely halfway through January. But this year, I figured that if I wrote them down on my blog, I’d probably remember them and would be more inclined to follow them since I could then give a sort of status update on them throughout the year and/or in next December. So here are my realistic resolutions for 2011!

Awesome Movie Mash-Up

Hello again, my fellow bloggers! (And a big thanks to my 9 followers!) I'm just doing a quick post today to show off this awesome movie mash-up someone posted on Twitter. (Twitter post link to this entry at ScreenRant.) It takes one of the famous sword fight scenes from "Princess Bride" (my favorite movie) and adds in an interesting element from "Star Wars". Please Enjoy!

NaNoWriMo 2010 is Officially Over

Final Word Count: 34,720

I’m a little saddened that this challenge is over since I really enjoyed it. It was more fun than I expected. =) But all good things must come to an end…or do they?
<.<   >.>   O.o

Yes, there is always next year…but why not continue writing throughout the year? Why not set your own monthly word count goals? Why not find a writing group to join or writer friends to hold you accountable? Or pledge to yourself to sit and write for a set time amount or set word count every day? 2 hours or 1000 words a day?
