Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month??? I’ve always wanted to participate! As a little girl, I always dreamt of being a writer… living in a quaint cottage, drinking hot tea, baking, and of course, writing stories at my comfy kitchen table. In Durham county, the library is offering a few workshops to get involved in so you can write a novel this month!
On that note, an article about why writers must be readers.
The 10 Best Bike Cities in America. Durham (or any city in NC for that matter) doesn’t rank, but I would love to visit/live in a few of those cities at some point in my life!

Apparently horror movies are good for your health? Who would have guessed?!
I’m sure you heard that Disney bought Lucasfilm… it’s a big deal. I am a big Star Wars fan, but I don’t think anymore films need to be made. Why mess up something good? (AKA, the 3 original episodes) Here’s an article about which characters will live on in the
stupid sagas to come. And Disney is unlikely to change ‘Star Wars’ brand. Whew.
25 fun fonts for font snobs via the Handmade Home. I like them all!
A few days late, but here’s one of my favorite North Carolina ghost story: The Ghost at Maco Station. My dad “saw” the ghost back when he was a young man, and he used to tell me about it every Halloween. At one point I had even memorized the story because I liked it so much! Do you have any favorite ghost stories?

The Guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are one of my favorite things in DC. Their dedication and perseverance amazes and inspires me. And I love how they stay on guard during crazy weather like Hurricane Sandy.
New York’s Coney Island Aquarium might have to evacuate their 12,000 creatures! 😮 Seriously, who would have thought that an aquarium would need to evacuate after a storm? I wouldn’t have.
