Only 1 Week Away
Yesterday was spent here at home. Mom brought the kids home around 11 a.m. that day. Then the girls and I spent the day baking, cleaning, watching movies, playing outside, and just hanging out.
Tim's been dealing with some sort of stomach issue for the last couple of days. I had him piled up in bed yesterday. He's as bad (or worse) than the children when it comes to being sick. He whines and pouts and complains. That's mainly why I shoved him into the bedroom and out of my way. LOL!
I received more good words about Time For Death yesterday. "...you drive the reader in a tense manner in a huge way..." I absoutely LOVE hearing things like that. She went on about certain book details that she likes (that I won't post here), and then I got this, "You are an amazing novelist!!!" Awwwwww! I love you too!
I have no real plans for today. Tim's still not feeling well, so it'll be another at-home day. That's okay though, I may just go get some pumpkins and let the kids carve them. I'm actually enjoying these peaceful days before the storm of November arrives. Today marks exactly 1 week until NaNoWriMo begins. I'm definitely ready to get started on book 2 of my Liz Baker series. Hell, I already have notes for book 3, too.
Once the contest starts I'll add a word count graphic to the blog. You'll be able to see how many words I have done and how much closer I am to the 50,000 word goal. This is my third year doing the contest, and I reached goal early for both previous years. Hopefully I can again this year.
A Birth at Dawn was the book I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2007. Then in 2008, I wrote the first draft of Time For Death. This year's book will be Time For Battle (unless I change the title).
Okay, I'm off. Have a good Sunday!
