November, Sorry I Missed October!


Fall this year has taken its time in coming, but has finally arrived. The colors, the coolness, and the soon to come time change all contribute to Autumn moving-into-winter. I've been traveling A LOT due to all sorts of reasons, but mostly taking care of family and seeing friends not seen since before the pandemic. I've shed tears seeing these dear folks, of happiness, and the fact we're all getting older. How many of us will be here in the near or far future? It's a sad thought, but also galvanizing.

I wrote while on the road and it was another long lost friend regained. The novel is progressing. We travel again soon, and won't be home for months. Luckily our son will be staying in our house. I will have time to write again and I look forward to the time I'll spend with the characters. I hope to do them justice with new inspiration.

Our IWSG co-hosts this month are the wonderful and daring: 

Diedre Knight, Douglas Thomas Greening, Nick Wilford, and Diane Burton!!!! 

Please drop by their blogs and thank them for their service this month!

The IWSG question this month is: November is National Novel Writing Month. 

Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

Yes I have a few times and written either first drafts or completed novels already started. It was an amazing experience every time I did it. I'll be participating in my own way this year, just not in November. I'm planning on Do-It-In-December this year! What are you working on this month?

  1. Sounds like your travels have been fun. I hope you have a good few months on the road. It's amazing that you get writing done when traveling. I'm finishing up a few commitments to volunteer projects and then I'll be able to have more time for my writing.

  2. Safe travels and many words written!

  3. We've also been seeing family we haven't seen in several years.

  4. OMG! Hocking Hills. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there in a cabin! Was awesome.

    November sucks as a contest month for me. Way too much time with corporate budgets and fictional business cases to have any real fun. But I like the idea of Do It in December. Maybe I should take a couple of weeks off and just write.

    Good luck with your December plans.

  5. Hi Lisa - it's good you've been able to go visiting friends and family whom you haven't seen for a while, while those catch ups are good; enjoy the next ride! Then the freedom of writing ... cheers Hilary

  6. I'm glad to hear you're writing again! Fall has been beautiful here.
