NaNoWriMo is on the Horizon

Blog Post #34certificate

Dear Readers,

The last morning I spent on the deck was crisp, my mug of tea a welcome source of heat. The leaves have been turning gold and burgundy and lifting free to follow the wind. The daylight dims earlier each day, and I can see National Novel Writing Month on the horizon. I sort of figured this month I’d be too busy for down time, but I seemed to have found it despite tours, parties, and weddings already in place. September has ended and autumn has begun to settle in.

Dear Readers,

It’s been a month, hasn’t it? I feel like a whirlwind. I’ve been everywhere doing a bit of everything, picking up and dropping paper here and there, but never feeling like I managed to get somewhere.
