Random Stuff

Here in Oklahoma, snow isn’t a guaranteed part of winter – especially in November. Today we woke up to huge, beautiful snow flakes falling from the sky. The kids were sure this meant that there would be no school, but their hopes were dashed. The ground is too warm for the snow to stick and there wasn’t even talk about the weather’s effect on the roads. I usually only drive my middle school kids to school in the morning, but today the high school kid wanted a ride too.

I’ll be spending the rest of the day working on a steamy romance and staying warm.

Does it snow where you live? Are you dreaming of a white Christmas?

Writing

November 1st.

National Novel Writing Month.

Every year I start a new project on November 1st and this year is no different. I’ve spent the last week getting everything ready. Plotting, character sketches, and chapter breakdowns have been completed. My mini-fridge is full of Coke and Cranberry Ginger Ale. My snack drawer is full of little boxes of heaven from Sugarfina – their chocolate pearls are my favorite.

I’m very excited about what I’m working on and really think that it can be more than just one book. There is so much to this story that I think it can be a three book series.

Throughout the month, I’ll update with word counts and how it’s going. Hopefully at the end of the month I will have a finished first draft.
