If you give a mouse a cookie…
…it will want a glass of milk. If you give Joanna a project, she will find 300 other tasks to complete as well.
This is the only possible explanation I can come up with for why I haven’t written a post or touched my novel since late September.
I know that November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and I didn’t have any delusions that I could commit to 10,000+ words a day. I do have a plan to have my own type of challenge- I want to be at 30,000 words by the end of the month. I’m at 12,000. I know with real NaNoWriMo you have to start from 0, but this is the Joanna challenge. So today and the long weekend of Thanksgiving I plan to force myself to get this done. I want the novel finished (for me, not edited) by the end of the year. It would be great to have a Spring release date.
Just an update (if you follow my Facebook page you’ll get more timely updates)- I did my first craft fair (I’m not too crafty), gave a talk on Moral Injury in Charlotte, NC and was able to see Dad for Veterans Day. I’m trying to prepare for Christmas and all the trappings of that.
I’ll keep this brief because I really want to get some words in today.
