I'm in, baby!

It's October. Fall is here.

And so is Amy's NaBloWriMo. Stumped? Read my first NaBloWriMo post from 2007 and you will see the light.

I signed up only because I am a sucker for her lip-balm. She makes it herself - just like her fabulous soaps - and is giving one out to everyone who signs up.

I should be certified and locked away. I am nuts to sign up for this when I have so much going on that I am falling behind on my commitments. But I simply cannot say no to lip-balm. Hey! Move to Colorado, you will jump out of your newly acquired crocodile skin when you realize that your lips don't feel much different to touch from your driveway.

There will be at least one post a day. Some long. Some short. Some terrible. Some with no words, just a picture. Most without a recipe.

Will you join me for the ride? I hope so!

yayyy! Buts its been a year already since the last one! thats was super fast Manisha, la lala lala....I am going to have something ready to enjoy when I get to office all this month :P

Manisha said...

Amy, anything for your lip-balm! Even the sheer torture of posting every day!

Purnima, I am in a weird sort of funk when it comes to my writing. I'm hoping NaBloWriMo will help me get back some of my mojo.

Alka, thanks!

Bee, woo hoo! Like I said, my air-popper has been called to duty!

Sangeeth, thanks!

Kitt, I am online just not as productive as you have been!

Shabari, I hope things come together for you. I'll be thinking of you - take care, ok?

RP, you mean you enjoyed the sheer torture I went through! And yes, more summer! I'm not ready for snow - which we will no doubt see this month.

Divya, thanks!!

Manasi, thanks!!

Musy, throw your hat in the ring! Worst case scenario? You won't get lip-balm but at least you will write!

Jen, yay you! I'm dreaming of having my own queen of the night already!! So good to see you here!

Pel, wuss! How about you write just one post every week? No? Every two weeks then?

Mamatha, you made it! Yay!

Priya, it's been a year, yes! I started late last year and carried on into November cos I couldn't do 31 posts in 21 days. You might be getting your hopes up too high, you know!

I have so much going on too, thats why me didnt read... i just have to visit you and feel the mountain air!
