Oh, hi. We’re doing this again, huh? How exciting.

As you say, let’s move on. How are you feeling about Blogtober so far? Tomorrow is the last day…
I’m thrilled. This was a great project and I loved every minute of it.

Lessons learned?
Definitely that it’s possible to be regular with my blogging. I found myself looking forward to getting on here and posting, even more than I do in general. It was also interesting to find creative ways to weave autumn within each post.

Admittedly, you didn’t do so bad with that autumn theme.
Is that a compliment? Alert the media.

Sarcastic much?
Let’s move on.

I see what you did there. Look, I honestly thought every post would be about leaves and the color orange and such. I saw some variety there and there. You done good.
Thanks.

Will you Blogtober again?
Absolutely. Blogtober 2015 will be a thing.

Great. Now, how’s the creative writing thing going? You haven’t spoken about that in a while. 
Wonderful. Beautiful! I’m working on a collection of fiction, brand new short stories, which will be published shortly. Really excited about that. After that’s completed, I begin The Novel.

Oh in caps? Is it the Great American Novel or what?
Well, that’s entirely subjective for the reader. But I placed it in caps because I’ve feared the novel for a while. The commitment, the time it will take, etc. I prefer short stories because I can whip ’em out, you know? But whatever. I have about three novels in the pipeline and it’s time to put on my big girl writer pantaloons and just get to work. I’ll be sure to discuss my novel efforts further.

Big Girl Writer Pantaloons? Really?
It’s scary stuff! But I’ve also been very inspired by fellow awesome writers/friends who hunkered down and started their novel projects. (Thanks, Laura!)

Ok. Still trying to process the pantaloons. All right, what else is happening in your life?
Same ole. Work, life, life, and work.

How’s the hair?
She’s fine, thank you.

She?
Mm hmm.

Why not he?
Anyway, she’s doing well. I mentioned having straightened her after returning from my trip to Vegas and enjoying that change in the look. But after I washed her, it was clear that she didn’t take kindly to the change. My curl pattern has gotten a bit looser and some of the ends just refuse to curl. But, all in all, she’s coming back to me. I’m babying her. And I’ve promised her that we will never go straight again.

So drastic, you.
It’s imperative. I need to keep her happy and healthy and curly.

Will you be doing a protective style? It is fall, after all. And it’s only going to get cooler. You need to protect your beloved strands.
Look at you, all knowledgeable and advise-y!

We are the same person, Einstein. Well? 
Yes, I will be changing things up in a few weeks. Pics will come, of course.

Good. Now, quite obviously changing the subject, are you active on social media?
Indeed I am. Check out my Contact page and see the social media soup.

That Instagram link isn’t working, my friend.
I’ll fix it.

Seems a bit irresponsible to have it on your contact page, broken link and all.
I said I’ll fix it.

Calm down, Sally. Sheesh. 
You’re trying to provoke me. And my name isn’t Sally.

Oh, yeah? So what is it then? Your name?
I see what you did there.

Smart, huh?
Yeah, I’ll give you that, Sally.
