Yesterday I wrote about my personal experience competing in NaNoWriMo, Today I thought I would take a look at the different technology I used to try to reach 50,000 words.

Looking back at NaNoWriMo 2014

The month is over, my mad dash to 50,000 words came up short. Very short. I didn’t even manage to write 15,000 words this year, and that’s including my background

POD: Hitting 1000

Tonight I continued my November routine of heading to Starbucks with Jacob to do some writing. I haven’t managed to find my novel writing groove, but it’s been fun trying.

POD: My little Tardis

I find it funny how the littlest of gifts can bring so much joy.  Tonight I have a picture of one of my stocking stuffers,  and though I got some great gifts,  this little guy stands out as one of my favourites.

POD: Ruby Enjoys her Gifts

Tonight was a lay around the house kind of day, and so for my Picture of the Day I thought this one of Ruby enjoying her Dino bone on her new bed summed the day up perfectly.

POD: The kids on Christmas morning

MarryChristmastToday I wanted to capture a picture of all my ‘kids’ in front of the tree, before they opened their stockings and presents.  It didn’t quite work out.

POD: Christmas Eve Story

Tonight we continued our Christmas tradition of allowing each kid to open a present and one for them to share.  There gifts are Christmas PJs and the joint gift is a Christmas story book.  Today’s picture of the day is of Jacob reading the story to Violet.

POD: Little Ruby

Today we have another picture of Ruby,  relaxing after a long day. I wonder if she knows that her birthday is just 3 days away.

POD: Night Before Christmas House

Today we have a little different pod. This is a photo of our Night Before Christmas House we won at last years Christmas Concert (See post here).  I was just playing around with my phone taking different pictures of our Christmas decorations when I captured this image. Well the raw form of this image. When I looked later I found Google had Auto Awesome it into the master piece you see.

POD: Decorating our Tree

PhotoGrid_1419210420615Today the kids finally got to really decorate our Christmas tree. They were so excited that I just sat back and took pictures. It was so much fun for us all. The best was when Violet pointed at the tree and said ‘That part isn’t ornamented.’

 

POD: Violet’s first Goal

image

After weeks of getting close to scoring,  today Violet finally put on in the back of the net.  It took till her last shift of the game.  A game filled with shots that missed the net or were stopped by the goalie one finally found its through. We’re so proud of our little hockey star.

POD: Letters from Santa

image

Today the kids got their letters from Santa they were so excited to open and read them. The looks on their faces as the read the letters makes all he hustle and bustle of the Christmas season worth it.

POD: Going Retro

Today Jacob had a dose of Retro gaming. At a local sub shop they have a classic table top Ms. Pac-Man game. Jacob was surprisingly excited to play it. I foresee many trips to that sub shop in my future.
