NaNoWriMo: I’m In

Screen Shot 2017-11-01 at 10.39.23 PMI almost forgot that I signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). So I’ve decided to write a novel in a month. I’m sticking with my plan to adapt a screenplay I’ve written, which is a girls’ adventure story.

Today after my library class I remembered I meant to sign up. So I had to hurry to get my words done. I got 1700 or so, which is a good start.

What I wrote today was all new. I’mm too tired to elaborate, but watch this space for more updates.

Detoxes Debunked

Convinced that the means of super, good health is a detox of white food or processed food or what have you, I’ve tried to detox and quit as after a couple days I feel weak and feeble. I always feel I’ve failed.

Thus I couldn’t be happier to learn that you don’t need to detox. The whole idea is a myth because your body gets rid of toxins anyway. It’s an attractive idea, but there’s no science behind it.

Seems all we need to do is eat well.
