Did I forget that today is the last day of National Novel Writing Month? Uh, yeah. Guess I did.
Well, I stalled out at about 8,000 words. A combination of work related duties, a visit from Nicole over the Thanksgiving weekend, and, uh, lack of personal discipline sidelined my effort. Still, 8,000 words is not bad for a start. If I can keep that up, I’ll have a completed manuscript by this time next year.
Just in time to try again.
