Cozy Holidays to You and Yours

I’m signing off for a few weeks. I plan to spend time with family and enjoy a bit of adventure this holiday season. I wish you and yours a wonderful, cozy holiday season. With any luck, you’ll get some time for rest and rejuvenation as well.

Thanks again to the beta readers who’ve already reached out to me. If anyone is still interested and able, please let me know. Perchance you’ll find yourself with some downtime and nothing to read… if so, let me know.

Can’t wait to share more about this book, but for now, I’d better quit blogging and get to writing.

NaNoWriMo update

Good news, I’ve been writing away like crazy. I’ve written 16,500 words in 7 days!! Only 33,500 to go. If I don’t stumble into a major writing block, I think I’ll get there.

Let me share my favorite passage I’ve written so far. Please excuse that it isn’t perfectly polished. When you are writing like a mad person, editing has to come later.  Continue reading “NaNoWriMo update”
