The most wonderful time of the year!

Tip of the Day: when people warn you, you will get 400 trick-or-treaters. Plan for 500. That way you don't have to tell poor innocent children you've ran out of candy and pop.

November...it's that time of year when all the crazy people gather in one location and commiserate with one another, while sipping on strong coffees and downing chocolate candies by the handful.


Black Friday?

Nope. It's NaNoWriMo Time!

I've participated in the past, but I'm not officially joining the ranks of crazy this year. But I am participating in a mini NaNoWriMo-like challenge (just like Deena!) where I'm trying to get a final revision on one of my books done.

And just like I've started every NaNoWriMo challenge in the past: after one day, I've got completely nothing done! Yay for consistency.

But my goals have been set and since goals are to me like candy was to the trick-or-treaters at my house last night, I'm confident work will progress soon. Because there's nothing getting in between me and my candy!

I must be semi-crazy too. I started yesterday with NaNoWriMo and actually wrote 4,500 words and was totally surprised with where the story meandered! My goal is to have 50,000 by Thanksgiving. Good luck on your mini event.
