Oh fall, you fill me up with wonderful aromas, memories, and light dreading. :giggle:

So, I've been taking a lot of dance lessons this year, mostly Lindy Hop 101-2,201-2, and 301-2 plus Blues and solo Charleston. I've even started to TA for blues and I've rather enjoyed that. ^_^ It does however, take about 20+/- hours out of my week to participate in all of these, but hopefully after this week I can shave off an hour or two for other things like NaNoWriMo which I'll be MLing for again this year.

My origami classes are going to be this weekend and I am excited! They're going to be small classes but the exposure would be great for me and the two art stores I'll be work with. Huzzah!

So, for those wondering about what NaNoWriMo is, it's a crazy quest to write a 50k word novel in the month of Novemeber, which once the math is broken down it's about writing 1 word every minute of every day for 30 days lol (1667 words a day). That equates to about ... 4ish pages worth of text. Why is it a crazy quest? Lets check the numbers:

Sleep - 8 hours
Work - 8 hours
Eat - 3 hours
Total 19 hours

So outside of doing anything else, I'd have just 5 hours a day to do other things, but with dance lessons taking 3-4 hours after work, I'd generally have 1 hour left to claim, so I'll be cutting on sleep and eating to compensate. Bring on the :coffee: !

This is going to be an interesting Fall. I should still be able to get some origami work in, and hopefully i'll have a sketch or two done (not likely but miracles happen). We'll see.

Thank you so very much for adding me to your watch list but you should know most of the art in my gallery is drawn by other people (as commissions or gifts), my own stuff pales in comparison. ^^;
