What's New?

So.... I apparently forgot to blog again. Do I have to post the Uncle Billy photo? Don't you think that is a little harsh for punishment? No? Okay.

There you go.

I am suitably chastened.

Anywho, this post is to encourage you all to take those eyes of yours and move them on to the right. That's correct, move your gaze over to the the sidebar and take in all the lovely changes. You will notice three new features.

1) The NaNoWriMo badge. NaNoWriMo (for those who don't already know about it) is National Novel Writing Month, and this year I've taken the plunge. I have committed myself (by registering at the NaNoWriMo website) to write a new novel in the month of November. This is 50,000 words; and no cheating, as they validate your word count at the end of the month.

Of course this requires an actual story for a book. But never fear, I have one. However, in this plotting stage all WIP updates here on Creare will still be on VT. (Do I need to be punished for that, too?).

2) The Twitter Updates. This is pretty self-explanatory. Race does the Twitter thing. She tweets. Her tweets are boring, like most tweets ever tweeted. But in case you care, I am putting them on Creare so there are two methods you can pursue to hear about the latest in Race-land.

3) The search feature. Also pretty self-explanatory. Actually, since a lot of you probably already knew what NaNo was, all three of these were. But I like typing; it makes a pretty noise. So I'll explain the search feature too. It is basically a little box you can write stuff in, hit a button, and... I assume... Google will search my blog for the stuff you wrote in the little box. It is actually quite brilliant.

And that is what is new here at Creare. Thanks for stopping by (I dare you to search the blog for random things and let me know how it goes).

Oh, and a quick quiz. Can any of you tell me who this is? First one to guess correctly in a comment gets a blog shout out.
