Sorry for the lack of post last Monday. The only excuse I have is that it was the start of NaNoWriMo and I didn't want to get behind on week one. As of the end of the week, I was about 39 words ahead of my personal schedule, so I was happy. No, 39 words … Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s November!
There is a definite nip to the air most days now. Not that I am complaining, mind you. Much as I like warm weather and dislike the really cold, this has been, overall, a not that great summer. It was either hot and humid, or raining, or both. So, now that we are seeing some … Continue reading Fall Is Definitely in the Air
If you are a writer, you probably have at least heard about National Novel Writing Month. For the non-writers and others who may not know, NaNoWriMo (as it is known) occurs during the month of November. The idea is to start on November 1 and by the end of the month, write a 50,000 word … Continue reading Wednesday On Writing: NaNoWriMo and You
I have been having a bit of trouble with my knee lately. It started a few weeks ago, but we were having a full week of rain at the time, so I wrote it off to arthritis acheys. Then, the weather turned cold and I thought: Yeah, well that's what happens when the joints get … Continue reading Monday Musings: Knee Bummer and NaNoWriMo Progress
Oh, yes, the annual frenzy of National Novel Writing Month has begun. Yes, I am participating this year, but not for writing a novel. I am using this month to keep me focused on developing an idea I had for a YA fantasy. There will be writing done. There has already been some. But I … Continue reading Monday Musings: NaNoWriMo is Upon Us
It's been busy around here for the past few weeks. Mostly traveling with a bit of other stuff tossed in there just to keep me busy. The traveling is done until the back half of October, but we have some stuff going on this weekend (including our grandson's eighth birthday party. He's 8? Wow!). After … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Settling Down For a Bit
It's the end of the year- well, almost. I have finished and overshot my reading goal for this year, so I have slowed down on that a bit, and am catching up on some things I've needed to, so book reviews are going to be a bit sparse from now until next year. What I … Continue reading Friday Review: Let’s Look at NaNoWriMo, Shall We?
There is just a bit over a month to go on the presale for Two's Company. It will release on December 18, and is available in ebook form at a discounted price until then. You can preorder it at Amazon, Smashwords (in any ebook format, including Kindle), Barnes & Noble, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo. … Continue reading Monday Musings: Some Updates
Oh, look- the world is still out there! And all you lovely people, too. Hello! I know I have been MIA for a week or so and I apologize. Our family Thanksgiving was November 17 this year, due to scheduling, which seems to get more interesting every year. We had out of town company, as … Continue reading Monday Musings: And She Rose, Blinking, Into the Light
I am woefully behind, to the tune of over 2200 words! But that is mainly because our family Thanksgiving was last week, so that meant the usual no progress for a few days. So that means this week will be dedicated to catching up. Which I am sure I will be able to do. *fingers … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: NaNoWriMo and the rest of November
