It's November so…


Image by niehoff via Flickr It must be time for NaNoWriMo again. I’m in it for the fourth year in a row. I haven’t talked to Shirl yet, but I hope she joins up again. It’s nice having company on this trek through words and psyche. I am also trying to get used to the shift back to normal time and away from Daylight Savings Time. Speaking of “time,” maybe that’s a good theme. Then […]

NaNoWriMo takes over


Even if you were to ask me, and no, this isn’t a covert fishing expedition for compliments on my writing, I would not show you what I am working on for NaNoWriMo. It’s just a great pile of stuff.

One thing I have to admit is, that in light of today’s being Election Day, and my ensuing obsession with watching the election coverage, I might not get today’s word-count in. I apologize in advance to Shirl, who is probably typing away furiously now. :nailbite:  The good thing about its being Election Day: one is never at a loss, for this whole 24 hours, for a topic of conversation.

Already started


Yes, I already have started the NaNoWriMo writing. I am writing a memoir of sorts for Peter’s consumption. Y’all may get bits and pieces of it as entries here, and then again, you may not. You take what you can get. :nerd:  I had been going to use some of the writing down of memories that I’ve been doing the past couple of months, but no, today I did the right thing and started afresh. Yay […]
