i'Ve LoSt My MiNd... SeRiOuSlY

Are you curious?

Wondering how I've lost my mind yet?

I've joined NaBloWriMo. Yup, I did.

For those of you unaware it means I'll be writing everyday... and I mean EVERYDAY for the month of October. I don't expect everyone to comment away, after all some days the posts might really suck. I hope they won't. But they might.

Okay so weekends are for fun. Well I would like to think every day here is fun, but on Saturday and Sunday they will be mindless. I'll talk of movies, candy, fall, anything I want. So are you ready?

Since we've fallen into October, and you know it's my favorite thing, it only makes sense that I share my favorite things... HEY... maybe on the weekends I'll post my favorite things *makes notes*

Favorite FALL Movies...

You've Got Mail
Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, the perfect holiday combination. (Owning a beautiful bookshop helps!)

Step Mom
Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts, the perfect holiday combination. (Makes you laugh, cry, and want the family connection in the end!)

While you were Sleeping
Peter Gallagher, Sandra Bullock (noticing a trend) the perfect holiday combination. (Romance, unobtainable men, awesome family, what's not to love!)

Sleepless in Seattle
The duo are at it again! Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan continuing to swoon woman all over the nation!

I know you can do it! Can't promise I'll comment every day though. Would that be NaBloCoWriMo?

Eeek, my head hurts...

Mason Canyon said...

I've been watching YOU'VE GOT MAIL this week. Guess it is something about fall and that movie. Good luck with NaBloWriMo.

Yay for posts every day! Also, a great list of movies. But...Sleepless in Seattle is the movie with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. While You Were Sleeping is the Sandra Bullock movie! And it's also one of my favorites :)

Rachel Roushey said...

Good luck with your NaBloWriMo!

Quinn said...

I'm doing NaBloWriMo too. I'm hoping I don't slip into mindless posts, but ... it could happen.

I love Step Mom!

Mary said...

I'm in too. Made a plan and loused it up already. LOL
Now you've put those great movies in my head I'll have to watch them.
Good luck with the posts.

Jess said...

My favorite fall movie is INDIAN SUMMER about old friends who reunite for a week. It's got Diane Lane and some other folks--beautiful foliage shots...*sigh* wish I had time to get apple cider and donuts and just veg all day!

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

Ooh fun! I love While You Were Sleeping but always think of it as a winter movie. For fall movies I love Practical Magic!

It'll be interesting to see what you come up with by day 30...hee.

But if all else fails just review one of the movies or books you love; I'll bet there's a lot more than 30 of those. Good luck! And while I may not comment every day, I'll definitely be reading every day:)

Janna Qualman said...

I haven't heard of this challenge. You're a brave girl! Have fun with it. :)

Dominique said...

You are very daring. I personally don't think I'd have it in me to post every day of the month without resorting to posting nonsense regularly. Good luck. Looking forward to reading it. :)

Melissa said...

Oh wow, good luck with NaBloWriMo. I know I couldn't do it (says the girl who posts once a week, lol)!

Now you've got me wanting to watch all of those movies again. I love them all, but it's been a long time since I've seen them.

Claire Goverts said...

I also joined NaBloWriMo, and I'm hoping to have interesting posts for this month. Good luck.

The Golden Eagle said...

I'm doing NaBloWriMo too. I'll try t comment on your posts! :) I know I've got a few ideas . . . but I'll just have to wait for more to come for the rest of the month. I'm sure you'll nail this challenge though!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad you decided to participate.
I'm counting weekend posts as one. Close enough to daily for me!
Underworld and The Crow are my fall movies.

Laura Marcella said...

Great picks! I love You've Got Mail. :)

Nicole Zoltack said...

I absolutely adore Sandra in While You Were Sleeping. I've only seen that movie about a hundred thousand times. :)

Sandy Shin said...

While You Were Sleeping is perhaps one of my favorite, favorite movies ever. :)

Jai Joshi said...

You're right. You are crazy!

Haha, I bet some really cool ideas are going to come of it though. And I'm sure it'll be fun for the rest of us in reading.

Good luck!

Jai

Alexandra Crocodile said...

Yay! A fello NaBloWriMo'er! I also adore You've Got Mail, it's one of my all time favourites. Meg Ryan is so cute!

NiaRaie said...

I miss Meg Ryan.(Come back Meg!) When Harry met Sally was my favvvv though.

Medeia Sharif said...

Happy writing.

I seriously haven't seen any of those movies.

Ezmirelda said...

So you'll be blogging everday of the month? Awesome.
I'm looking to your list of favorite things post, haha ;)

Cinette said...

There's another "write everyday blogfest type thingy" Called NPI (Novel Push Initiative. What a busy place this blogshere is;-)

Samantha Bennett said...

I adore You've Got Mail!!! The line about the bouquet of fresh-sharpened pencil just gets me in that fall spirit!

Misha said...

You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping and Sleepless in Seattle are my favorite RomComs!

Botanist said...

Good luck with the posting this month! I kinda thought about giving it a go, but not too hard nor too long. I figured if I could make time for that then I could make time for writing instead. We'll just have to see how that works out ;-)

Stacy McKitrick said...

Good luck with your posting every day. I couldn't do it. It would take time away from writing my bood. Which I should be doing now!

I like three of the four movies you listed, but I consider WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING (my favorite by far) a Christmas Movie for some reason. I don't think of Peter Gallagher in it, I love Bill Pullman!

Stacy McKitrick said...

Okay - see I can't write. I need to go back to my BOOK!

Las Vegas Writer said...

Is this blogging every day or writing in general every day? Let me know! I'm interested in seeing how it goes.

Bish Denham said...

Oh man, you need to add Still Breathing to your fall list. Man looking for the woman of his dreams (literally.) She turns out to be a con-artist. Wonderful.

Mimi said...

Big challenge!
Gaelikaa (Irish blogger living in India) recently did a post with great tips on achieving this,I follow her if you want to check it out.
Love your movie choices, You've got mail and Sleepless in Seattle are 2 of my all-time favourite movies!
Looking forward to 30 more posts!!

Jemi Fraser said...

Good luck with the challenge!!

I only watched StepMom once - uncontrollable sobbing ensued. Can't watch that one again!! :)

Shelley Sly said...

Oh man, I just love the bookshops in You've Got Mail! Great choices of movies, too. :)

Kerrie said...

That is a great and very hard goal. :) I wish you the best of luck. Also, I too enjoy those movies.

thebookfairyhaven said...

Wishing you all the best with NaNoWriMo. will be sure to keep up with your progress and find out how you're fairing. Loved your list of movies. While you were sleeping is also one of my favourites. :)

Lisa said...

I just went and joined, too. The craziness is catching :)

Colene Murphy said...

I LOVE this idea of you writing every day! freakin' killer!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

Welcome to the maddness. We will get through the month together.

Sara Louise said...

Ah, I love everyone of these movies! And I never thought of them as Fall movies, but they totally are!
Good luck writing everyday :-)

Meredith said...

Ooh, I love all of those movies! I may have to go watch You've Got Mail for the hundredth time now... :)

haha! I have favorite season movies too! And three of your choices: Sleepless in Seattle, While You Were Sleeping and You've Got Mail are my WINTER movies!! LOL! I don't know why but they are. Probably because I reserve most of October and part of September for scary movies. Yup, that's probably it. :D
