As of Day Five, my word count stands at 11,586.

Tomorrow is a big day here in the U.S. In NaNo Land, it means the first Official Write-In for my region.

For the United States as a whole, it means the mid-term elections. To all my fellow citizens of voting age, I beg you, MAKE SURE YOU VOTE!

These events will come together at the library. That’s where we’re holding the Write-In, and that is also a polling place.

The future is in our hands, people. Let’s make it a good one.

#NaNoWriMo 2018 Begins!

Oh my stars and garters. I’ve been going like a maniac for days now. Friday–Halloween party. Saturday–trip through a Haunted House. Sunday–groceries, laundry, pizza, as well as prepping for the Kick Off Party. Monday–the Kick Off party! Tuesday–taking John to tae kwon do. And of course Wednesday was Halloween!

People ask me how I get any writing done. It’s simple. I do it whenever I get the chance. On Tuesday I was sitting there with my notebook on my knee writing while John was out on the mat with his tae kwon do class. At this point I’m busy typing in everything I wrote during #nanoprep in October. Still, I must keep writing every day. That’s the deal.

We’re going to EuCon again this month. John is once again in charge of the Art Bus. This means five days on the road. It will be a real challenge making sure I hit the daily quota when my brain is fried from driving for hours or working the con. I’ve already proven I can write in my sleep, so I might need that skill again and soon!

Then there’s John’s birthday and Thanksgiving! The excitement never stops!

I’m going to write. Every day. A whole new book.

To all my fellow WriMos out there, I wish you all the best as you embark on your journeys of creativity.
