Returning for another Mise en Place, this week went by too fast, anyone else? For those unfamiliar, the Green Onion Mise en Place is a recap of the ongoings of the blog, with a sneak peak as to what to expect in the coming days. But, I usually like to kick things off by talking about what’s going on, so…
What’s Going On-
As I announced previously, I am participating in my first NaNoWriMo this November. I have a great story figured out, but my planning is not where I would like it to be, mostly what happens when and where. Luckily for me the writer, not so lucky for me the family man, Jenn is going on a trip this week, so while I miss her desperately I can distract myself with getting my NaNoWriMo Mise en Place ready. Speaking of, a little prize for all of you, Jenn has recently pledged two guest articles for the blog next month, while I am freaking out over word counts and character directions. Again, the amount of people that have come forward to help me and this little blog is amazing, and I cannot thank you enough.
Yesterday we headed over to my nephews first birthday party, whose true birthday is on Monday. Happy Birthday baby Bennett! A little Green Onion factoid: I am a sucker for babies, they tend to melt my full grown man heart. Obviously, I have a massive soft spot for my baby nephew, if only we could keep them that small forever.
Last Weeks Post-
- Monday, I posted a review on a pretty amazing book, The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. Honestly, one of the best books I have read in the second half of 2016.
- Femme fatales were the theme for a top 10 Tuesday, check out who is the deadliest vixen in comics.
- It was all about the clown prince of crime for last weeks comic review in 2006’s Joker from Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo.
- Thursday a review of the original picture book of Winnie the Witch went up.
- And, Friday, I shared the exciting news in YA fiction this week. Ransom Riggs is returning to Peculiardom with a new trilogy.
It is the last full week before NaNoWriMo, but more importantly it is the last full week before Halloween. So, guess what the theme is… kittens! No, lets get into all things creepy. Mondays book review will feature one of the biggest zombie novels available. We will see how the dark holiday goes for the caped crusader. A look at some classic villains, and some children’s favorites. All this, and a look at some big titles coming out in November.
Thanks booknerds, be sure to check in for this last week before the NaNoWriMo hiatus.
