My weeks have really been flying by, and I still can’t figure out why. The stress at work has eased off a bit, so that’s good. Reading through my manuscript has gone more slowly than I wanted, but I’ve made solid progress.

Curse our intriguing and impassioned conversations/arguments!

This week’s ‘tween-holiday lull has been a welcome break for me. It’s allowed me to really focus on preparing for the next steps — in writing, at work, and in life.

Writing has been slow again for me this week. I’ve written a total of 4,400 words for NaNo — a rather pitiful showing considering my initial goal was 30,000. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Recalibrating NaNo Goals
Well, well, well, nine days through NaNo and look where we are!
Can you guess? Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Family Writing Night!
