Well Happy November, all!

November is my favorite month of the year. Fall leaves, crisp evenings, birthdays for Harper and I (and many other wonderful people), Thanksgiving, and, late in the month, Advent beginning the countdown to Christmas.

This November is going to bring a lot of excitement, including, but not limited to, my 40th (?!) birthday.

So I'm going to try to do one thing I haven't done in three years and one thing I've never done at all.

I will participate in National Blog Posting Month (which I've not successfully done since 2013).

I will participate in National Novel Writing Month (which I've never done).

Maybe writing begets writing? Is that a thing?

Here is today's blog post and I've already surpassed my 1,667 words for the day.

We shall declare Day One a success and see where it goes from here. There is a series of events coming up later this month that seems almost guaranteed to derail progress on both fronts, but it never hurts to try.

Here's to November!

I intended to do the novel writing thing last year but I was expecting. It didn't happen. somehow I completely missed all the emails, reminders and all that. This is the first year I basically forgot. I participated last year and I'm caught up for this year.

my only annoyance is that they want you to put your posts in a facebook forum that's public, and every time you do that, then everyone on your friends list can see that you are the author of this blog and what you wrote. Daily. I have a public blog, but I wouldn't want people to go searching for things, just because. nothing to hide but nothing to be super proud of, either.
