Nablopomo for October: Fall

As you can see, this month's theme is Fall.
While the Southern Hemisphere moves closer to summer, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are hunkering down for fall. Leaves are starting to shake off of trees, pumpkin spice is in the air, and sweaters are coming out of storage. But fall is so much more than a season. We're talking about falling in love, falling down, and falling apart.

This month, we're going to look at how gullible we are. We're going to embrace our failures, figure out what we stand for, and look back at how problems have resolved themselves. There will be time to consider how long it takes you to fall asleep and how fearful you are of heights. By the end of the month, we hope this deep look into your own psyche will get you to fall in love with yourself all over again.
The monthly email goes into more detail.
Fall is so much more than just a season. It's the feeling we get when we realize that we love someone. It's what makes a fear of heights dizzying. It's about getting up just as much as it is about going down. In other words, this month's theme is about falling in love, falling apart, and falling back even as it touches on autumnal goodness like candied apples, Halloween costumes, and pumpkin pie.

Whether or not you're a fan of the season, there will be plenty of ideas in our varied writing prompts to spark posts -- from a great quotation by Confucius to imagining yourself a type of apple. Please join us for a NaBloPoMo month that will be as much fun as a farm hayride.
Fall is my favorite season and has been ever since I moved to Michigan from California.  I'm looking forward to blogging about it already.
So grab a mug of hot chocolate, crunch some leaves underfoot, and sign up for October's NaBloPoMo.
I signed up a couple of days ago.  At the time, no blogs were listed.  It looks like there was something of a rush, as this blog is halfway down the list.


  1. The word "gullible" is not in the dictionary.

    1. That one is almost as old as trying to get someone to dial a phone number with either q or z in it. Before cell phones, that would have worked. Now, I have a smartphone with both letters.
