For those of you who celebrate, I’d like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Take this time to recharge your creative battery.
I have a lot to be thankful for in my writing life. I just finished a rewrite on book #27. And about two weeks ago a publisher contacted me about writing for them. I sent in my sample yesterday. We’ll see if I have some news to report next week!
I’m also thankful that my writing accountability group talked me into doing NaNoWriMo as a rebel. My goal was for an outline of my mystery and then working on my draft, updating to fit the new outline and adding new scenes. I’ve got about 21,000 words at this point. Fingers crossed that I can get 4000 more words in the next three days.
What about recharging? I don’t really have a choice — and that’s a good thing! I don’t know if this is just a MidWest thing but our Thanksgiving celebration stretches across Thanksgiving Weekend.
Thursday, we have dessert with my Dad and dinner with my sister and her family.
Friday we’re doing dinner with my turkey hating in-laws. Think appetizers, soup buffet and dessert.
Saturday is just a regular day – thankfully. Because I will be baking for Sunday.
Sunday is Thankful dinner with a friend who has no family in town. Turkey, cranberries, home baked bread, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie.
So I’m going to be stepping away from my computer, except for NaNo writing, and spending some time with my family, knitting, walking on the treadmill and knitting.
I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday. See you on Monday.
