Sorry I haven't been around

It has been awhile since I last posted. This year I participated in NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month where participants try to write a 50,000 word novel in thirty days during the month of November.

Preparations for the write-a-thon started in October. I did get the fifty-thousand words written in November and am now preparing to edit and finish it.

It is already January which would be time to start thinking about seed starting for peppers. But this year I am taking a break from gardening. We plan to paint our home this summer along with a few other projects, so gardening will definitely take a back burner this year. Although I have been thinking about starting a few flowers...

Hope all is well in your part of the world. And may we meet again soon.

Wow! Congrats on the novel! I like the idea of using NaNoWriMo as a way to force writing discipline. I've just started working on one myself but I don't think 50,000 words in a month is possible for me!

It's a great way to get your creativity flowing. And there are lots of writing games in the forums that people play together like sprints and word crawls, which can be great ways to silence that sometimes critical meta-voice that narrates our lives.
