Sometime this afternoon I realized it’s the end of November.
Technically I finished NaNoWriMo on the 22nd. I wanted to reach 50,000 before I was to be travelling around the country visiting family.
I tried to write more – and I did – but I got out of my routine. I’ll start again tomorrow; I don’t care if it’s Saturday. I will finish that first draft in December.
In any case, tomorrow is the first day of my Christmas photo project venture.
I got a bunch of pictures when I was out in Colorado; I’ve purposely not shared them because I knew my self-imposed photo project was going to come up.
So, starting tomorrow, I will have a Christmas-themed picture of the day.
I’m going to need a lot more of these Christmas pictures.
I guess that means I’ll have to go to the Biltmore House (oh darn) and the Grove Park Inn to get some really good pictures.
I might drive around to people’s neighborhoods.
Then, I might have to get really creative.
Ooh, wait. I just thought of my small town, parades, and my husband’s home town.
At least it’s an excuse to get out and stretch my photographic skills.
The things I know I’ll have to work on:
- Using a tripod
- Nighttime photography
- Avoiding camera shake
- Working with ISO, aperture and shutter speed
I hope Santa’s little Elves bring me a real tripod for Christmas…and a second computer, too. My husband sells on eBay and sharing one computer makes life…interesting.
This afternoon, I was working on HubPages and “liked” an article. My husband was signed in on Facebook and showed my “like.” Oops. It’s a good thing it wasn’t an article about women’s underwear. That would have been really funny.
