All Right, Planners and Pantsers Alike…


NaNoWriMo 2017 Participant FlairThis pantser is IN! And as pantsering as always, given I didn’t really decide to go for it until this morning. Or possibly late last night.

Tough to tell.

I’ve logged in, created my “novel,” which never has anything to do with my novel, not really, but I fill out the form.All that’s left to do is pull up my spread sheet, trim my nails to word-sprint length and hit the writing starting blocks.

Who else decided to jump in this year? Any avoiders?

What am I doing blogging? I have words to write. My chart is looking awfully flat.

Check out  my full-length novels: 

Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only)   

Aunty Ida’s Holey Amazing Sleeping Preparation (Not Doctor Recommended) 

 Her Cousin Much Removed

 The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management.

And download Better Living Through GRAVY and Other Oddities, it’s free!

To NaNoWriMo or to Not NaNoWriMo?


NaNoWriMo 2017 Participant FlairThis flair should have a question mark right now. It’s decision day, all. Tomorrow marks the start of November, month of hoping to find a health insurance plan that won’t cost more than the national debt of a small country, and, of course, the beginning of NaNoWriMo. So the question remains: do I or don’t I?

It hasn’t gone well for me the past few years. Last year was going excellently, and then, well, we all know what happened nine days in. So do I try it?

I’m still not sure. I probably won’t know until tomorrow, until November dawns and I can tell definitively whether it’s time again.

Who’s in? Who’s out this year?

And who can believe it’s already November?
