How was everyone’s weekend? My OSU Cowboys won. Crossing fingers they can keep it up but they’ve got a hard schedule coming up. It’ll be a fight. I started reading DEADTOWN by Nancy Holzner, based on B.E.’s recommendation. I’m not too far into it but enjoying it so far. I have a bunch of reading to catch up on if I’m going to match my updated Goodreads challenge. I’d originally put down 100 but I reached that back in…July? I upped it to 150 but my reading time took a big hit this fall. We’ll see if I make it.
NaNoWriMo WIPs continue at, what is for me, a breakneck pace. Check out the word count widget over there on the right. I’m over 50%. I found a writing groove this weekend and the story gelled. There’s more tension and story arc than I’d first anticipated. This is a Very Good Thing(tm)!
And my last bit of news, I’m making a guest appearance over at THE UNPUBLISHED WRITERS’S GUIDE TO SURVIVAL talking about Surviving Release Day, and dealing with the anxiety that comes with the launch of a book.
Oh…wait…hrmmmm… There seems there was something else I was supposed to mention today. Now I wonder what that was? Oh. Yeah. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
