The Nursery Rhyme Maze I made with Twine was a total blast, and I used that new Chapbook style to do it.
I learned so much by doing the rabbit's foot research for my new Storybook story. It's not the best story... but the rabbit's foot is pretty amazing stuff, and the Bill Ellis article showed me how I really can, and should, look at the conjure fetishes and the folktales as interrelated. Here's the new story: The Rabbit's Foot.
And........... NaNoWriMo! I kept up with my word count as of yesterday, and I should have no trouble hitting my word count today since I got up so damn early because my back hurt and I couldn't sleep... so it's just now 2PM which means I can spend the afternoon with Nasruddin and Birbal. One of my funniest discoveries there so far was the Osho (Rajneesh) was a fan of Nasruddin stories, and I downloaded two books of Nasruddin jokes from the Osho site. It's nice to have some good Hindu-Islam synergy going on in the midst of all this madness in Ayodhya right now.
So, I could write more here, but I think I will stop and go write for NaNoWriMo. I'll take a quick look at the Twitter #NaNoWriMo stream to see if I can find a cool graphic to use to end this post...oh yeah: here we go! If I can go write something now, I'll have my 10-day streak for November. Write on! :-)
