Oh my what a month it’s been… Apologies to those that thought I’d vanished off the face of the planet, but November is not about growing a moustache for me (I don’t plan on entering the Guinness book of records for facial hair feats…)it’s about writing 50,000 words. Every year for the past four years I’ve had a go at completing the NaNo challenge.
This year has been problematic. First my work roster was full. Then my husband was inconsiderate enough to have a birthday slap bang in the middle of November. This year his present was going to see Leonard Cohen perform live in Hobart. All very lovely, but I hadn’t really accounted for the two days we’d spend travelling from one end of the country to the other and back again. Hobart welcomed us with open arms but was a little chilly… Leonard was divine 🙂
Then there were additional edits to Shattered Sky. A huge thank you to Rachael for her input – it was timely and spot on.
This weekend started early Saturday in Mackay on the end of a two day ‘milk run’, segued through our company christmas party, a friend’s fortieth, and a leisurely breakfast with my husband this morning to recover. All in all, I’m still 25,000 words short with 9 days to go…
That means head down and keep tapping, so expect to hear from me late November when I’ll either have a champagne in my hand to celebrate or blisters on my fingers from typing so fast 🙂 Or maybe even both!
