Five Things That Make Me Happy This First Day of November

1. A Book Moot Halloween: Every year, The Ents and Entlings get cooler. Every. Single. Year.

2.Popcorn, jellybeans and toast for dinner, a la A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

3. The School Library Journal's Blogomania piece. Doesn't our Betsy clean up well?

4. Pre-Cybils books -- blurb your NaNoWriMo month YA or kids' book in any genre and Anne Levy will run your professionally polished blurb on the Cybils' blog. Visualizing the dream of getting published -- and practicing for your jacket blurbs -- is just one more step toward making it come true.

5. Homemade Caramel Popcorn. THE stuff of autumn.

We're in the last gasp of 2009, and I join Kelly in wishing the year a less than fond farewell. I feel like I've been grumpy for weeks, so it's nice to kick off the month with anticipation. Winter Blog Blast Tour is in a couple of weeks, and the Cybils are ticking along nicely. Aquafortis is leisurely strolling through Seville, and I'm counting down the days 'til I get on a plane to come back to the States.

All is well.
