It's official folks. I am a winner for the second year in a row of the National Novel Writing Month thingie. And look at the ultra cool and amazingly nifty banner that I can add to my blog's sidebar now.

Tonight I will celebrate this great victory by attending a Christmas Concert in which my son David will be singing in his university concert choir (along with a bell choir).

Tomorrow I will contemplate the idea of actually finishing off my Faux Gogh chair and awaiting the First Day of the 12 Days of Christmas Swap.

There's no snow on the ground, but I am trying to get into the mood for Christmas. Now that nanowrimo is over for another year, my head feels as though it is suddenly starting to clear after living in a continuous fog for the past few weeks.

Stay tuned for more fun ~ and I promise to post more now that the nasty month of November is coming to an end.

Still here ... still writing

Hi, it's just me checking in to say hi to you all. I totally apologize for my nonexistent postings as of late. As many of you know, I do this incredibly crazy thing in November called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The basic premise is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in 30 days. I'm a member of the Edmonton branch ~ along with my hubby and two sons ~ of this insane little project, the EdMoWriMos.
Writing a novel, along with a 2 day job that has turned into a much longer commitment has made posting on my blog a rarity, indeed. My novel's word count as of this evening is 26,707 words, so I'm over halfway there. Yay me!
So my ever-patient blog adherants, hang in there. Once NaNoWriMo is completed, (I'm creating 2 awards for the Thank God It's Over Party -- ohh the pressure!) I will start in on the 12 Days of Christmas Swap play-by-play; showing you the wonderful treasures I've received as I open them every day.
Oh! And I still have the fourth panel (Irises) of my Faux Gogh chair to complete. I hope to have that done before we decorate our Christmas tree. So much to do! Agh!!!
