It is November 1st, my youngest son's birthday, All Saints' Day and the first day of Nanowrimo! If you have not signed up yet, there is still time! Go! Register! Write! (And then come back and finish reading my post.)

Speaking of reminders, I wanted to tell you how Souvenir turned out! I picked up the book at the writing conference, after meeting the author. The story Ms. Fowler has crafted is gripping.

I love it when, the day after I have finished a novel, I am still thinking about the characters. Meg is a little younger than I am but has a daughter a little older than mine. I kept turning the pages to see what Savannah, her 15-year-old daughter, would choose. I was afraid to see but more afraid not to! The books is about choices and consequences, for Meg, Savannah and Carson McKay.

(OK. So I also love it when a book I am reading can teach me about the book I am rewriting!) Which reminds me, it is time to get to work on the new one!

How's the new book coming today?? Glad you liked "Souvenir" so much...I need to go find it at the library.

Hey, Jen! It'll get there...if I stop logging on here, rather than writing, when I get a turn on "my" computer. Two kids in bed, hubby is picking the other one I can get to it!
(Still behind you but as long as I have more than 0 on day 1, I'm happy!) At 646 words, currently, but I will start typing again, shortly!
How is yours going?

I decided not to do NaNo this year. Instead, I'm going to finish the final draft of my work-in-progress. I don't know if I'll make it in a month, but I'm going to get there by the end of the year.

That's fantastic! (Though I'll miss the Nano updates) but I'm glad your WIP is close!
Good luck--you'll do it!

Sounds like a good one to read. I may have to check that one out while waiting on yours :) Good luck with NaNo :)
