Well, it’s November 1st. And we know what that means. It’s NANOWRIMO time! :)

I’ve been participating in the annual National Novel Writing Month for a long time. You can find me at “ViolinGirl.” The website is here: http://nanowrimo.org In fact, NaNoWriMo is what inspired my own version called NaPiBoWriWee (National Picture Book Writing Week) held every May 1-7. To find out more about my NAPIBOWRIWEE event (coming up this May 1-7, 2014), go here: http://paulayoo.com/napi/?p=651

I’ll also live Tweet about my #nanowrimo experience here: https://twitter.com/paulayoo

Oreo, Charlotte & Beethoven as The Grim Reaper for Halloween 2013!

Now onto the really important stuff… guess what YESTERDAY was? Yup! National Dress Your Cats Up In Cute Costumes Day! Also known as “Halloween.” Because we’re on a budget this year, the costumes were home made from scratch using a pair of scissors, an old black bed sheet, string, and some cardboard:

The final results? Three pretty grim looking Grim Reaper kitties. LOL!

Charlotte is one heck of a GRIM Reaper!

Beethoven was unusually morose instead of his lively self while dressed as a Grim Reaper!
