Are you ready for this week? With Halloween on Thursday and Dia de Muertos/Day of the Dead on Friday, we have a lot of fun celebrations happening now. There’s no prep work needed for this week’s prompts, so you can focus on whatever prep work you might still need to do.

But I would like to plant one little seed in your mind right now.

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Will you be participating? Read more about it here: https://nanowrimo.org/  but of course you do not have to register or participate online.

The rules are simple: to write 50,000 words in the month of November. They explain that: (a) This is about the length of The Great Gatsby, and (b) they have found this to be an achievable goal, even for busy people.

The novel does not have to be “good”!! You don’t have to show it to anyone. And you don’t have to have plans to publish it! The idea is just to be able to say that you got 50,000 words onto paper. This is about 1667 words per day in November. And if you complete 50,000 words, you win!

Think about it as you’re going about your week. November 1st is Friday, although you don’t need to be a perfectionist and start on that exact day.

Have a great week!

Today we are going to create a "Happiness Now!" list in our private journals, whether that be in our comfort drawers or in notes on our phones. Our brains have this icky habit of making it easier to remember bad things than good things. Take some time today to...
