NaNoWrimo Day: 3 and 4, La Casa Tomada, and Hamlet

Part 1: Okay so day three of NaNoWriMo was awesome. The goal was 6,000 words and I ended up with 6,354 at the end of the day. Day four didn't going as well, I got stuck in a rut (a small one, but a rut nonetheless) and I did not manage to get to 8,000 words last night but I did finish it up this morning and logged it into my account. I'm at 8,385 words right now and I have to get to 10,000 by the end of the day. Woot!

Part 2: La Casa Tomada will be playing tonight at 7:30 and it’s totally free (if anyone’s interested) it’s at the Goddard Theatre at Daytona State College. Tori, Elizabeth, and I are all in it so you should definitely stop by!
Oh, and Romeo and Juliet will be showing also at the J. M. Goddard Center (bldg. 230) from Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. through Saturday, Nov. 14. And don’t forget to go to the Celebration of Shakespeare at DSC on November 14th from 9 to 4. (I’ll be writing an article about it for InMotion so I will also be found there on the 14th.)
Okay, part 3: So Shakespeare is awesome, and if you don’t agree then we can never speak again. Right now Hamlet is on Broadway and it’s starring Jude Law. I’ve been watching clips from it all afternoon because it looks amazing! It’s running until December 6th and I so wish that I could go. I guess these videos will have to suffice.

Click here to watch an awesome video that I currently can't get enough of. :)
Check this video out too:

Hamlet is my absolute favorite play and it’s going to be showing at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre in January and costs $30. I’ll probably be going and I’d love some company. Any takers? Let me know! :)
“For Hamlet, and the trifling of his favours,
Hold it a fashion and a toy in blood;
A violet in the youth of primy nature,
Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting,
The perfume and suppliance of a minute —
No more.” –Laertes, Act I, Scene iii
Gah! It’s so beautiful and poetic, definitely the best play ever—I can’t wait to see it in Orlando in a few months!!
