Eek, tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I’m so excited! And I thought you should know that I am so thankful for all of you. I am grateful that you choose to spend even a little time here on TWP and I hope you find it time well spent. A lot of work goes into maintaining a blog but I do it all out of love for you!
Now before we get started I just have to say, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, NaNo, Batman! Ok, sorry, I had to get that out of my system because holy, stressful novel writing Batman. NaNo is kicking my bum! And with that and Thanksgiving I have only a precious short time to write to all of you. So here I am, because you all are important to me. I just wanted to jump on the ole bloggy blog and say hey and let you all know I have not forgotten about you even in my Nano induced panic.
I am hoping to hit 50,000 words by November 30th. It will be very close to the wire. I still haven’t hit the mark where I “should be” according to the NaNo gods. But I think I may be able to squeak this one out. I’m at 38,000 words right now so it is doable if I can just get enough time to write and the ideas I need to write about keep flowing.
Oh, did I mention I signed up to make the bulletin board for one of my fella’s at their school. And did I also mention that it has to be put up before December 1st?! Great scott Marty, what was I thinking? So yeah, I spent far too long today driving around trying to find paper penguins to put up because his teacher requested penguins. And then I just ended up ordering them from Amazon. Sigh. Ah, the jet-setting life I lead, I know you’re all jealous!
But yeah, as soon as November insanity is over, I will be back to working on getting the Maladroit published. Should be in the next couple months so keep your fingers crossed and get ready to tell your friends why they should buy this crazy awesome book. Trust me, they’ll thank you for it.
Well, I better get cracking on the Thanksgiving day preparations. Did I mention I’m cooking a five course dinner? Yeah, I’m super excited! Check out my Instagram (@thewritingpiazza) if you want to see all the yummy goodness I’ll be preparing. And maybe shoot up a prayer that my sanity will hold out for just a little longer and that my word count will grow just a little longer. 🙂
Until we meet again.
