I've been working on these for a couple of years, have put them aside, and decided to finish up during national writing month, hopefully. *toes & fingers* crossed.

Hopefully we will all have something to show come January:)

Happy Writings, All! :goldstar

Checking in.

I have a picture book to review. Then I'm going to browse the Cat Writers Association and Dog Writers Association, before responding to local volunteers in animal welfare groups to set up interviews. The first week of December might be very busy.

Happy writing everyone!

Cali, I'm impressed even if you've been working on both books for a couple of years.

Allison, sounds like you're chugging along. Keep at it!

I'm here.

Happy Writing, all!

Hello everyone! I'm checking in too.

Today I have to post a review and a meme. Then it's more research for more interviews.

Happy writing everyone!

I'm here working on the same novel I was working on yesterday and the day before and the day before and the day before. I'm alternately loving it and pulling my hair out at how slow it's going. Today I'm planning to love it.

Just want to say I'm always inspired seeing you all showing up and plugging away.

I was here. Finally started diving back into my PB revision. Once again adding/moving/deleting scenes around. A bit of work, hoping (praying?) the story will be stronger in the end.

Go for it, darshana! You'll make it better. Melissa, today is a "love the novel" day.

Waiting for the coffee to be done, working on the MG.

Wonderful writing to everyone!

Hi, everybody. And yes, JFriday, it's definitely a "love the novel" day today. I have family coming to town tonight and suspect I won't write much over the next several days, but this morning is all mine.

Woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't get back to sleep. Free writing time, in spite of the relatives sleeping in the basement. Plus they'll take care of my kid for an hour if I need a nap today. Woo hoo!

Okay. I got myself to focus for a half hour during my lunch period and brainstormed new scenes for my PB revision.
Happy writing to all.

glad you got some focus time in, darshana.

I'm working for a bit this morning before the big Getting Ready for Turkey Day.

I'm here too. Hoping to write for an hour or so this morning. Later in the day I intend to devote most of my creative energy to pie.

Checking in.

The past two days I was sick and forgot to post here. As with every morning, I posted to my blog.

Otherwise, this week, I'm taking a break from regular writing commitments. I have an annual review letter to my family in Canada to finish up and send in time for Christmas. I'm also working on a photo album of cats for our local Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) group.

Our Thanksgiving preparations will start later today. Enjoy the holiday season!

Checking in too! Thanks for the reminder.

I just finished writing my review of the final titles in The Lunar Chronicles. Now I'm off to read about writing nonfiction for children. Then this afternoon I'll finish up my photo album of cats for our local Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) group.

Except for my husband's trip to the emergency room, it's been a relaxed Thanksgiving holidays. Hope it stays this way!

Trip to the emergency room? Gaak. Hope that wasn't as bad as it sounds. :hug

Being an early riser paid off for me this morning. One of our guests needed to catch an early flight out of town. She missed her alarm, but I woke up early enough to get her out the door in time. Ah, the many unexpected benefits of the writing life...

Checking in.

Checking in.

Good deal on waking up your guest in time for her flight.

Weekends have a little different routine. I fill them up with family time and animal welfare commitments. Regards the latter, I'm working on an article now to promote a spay/neuter project for a local group. After that, I'm not sure what the plans will be. My husband and I were supposed to have plans, but the streets are icy and the air is cold.

Then there's that darn emergency aftermath. My husband tripped and smacked his head on the door frame. In all likelihood, he'll have a scar. He's also been suffering from headaches and tiredness.

Sorry! Way to long of a report.

Happy writing everyone.
