It's November 1, which means today's the annual day I feel guilty about not writing a novel this month. It's a thing, for those of you who don't read too much internet like I do, where a bunch of people get together and try to write novels of significant length in a month.  I don't know why they chose November, because it's the second-busiest month of the year.  No one consulted me.  I have three kids and a puppy and a business.  It's just not time, for me.  Maybe next year.

How many more years can I keep saying that, before I run out of next years?

It's also NaBloPoMo, which means National Blog Posting Month - we're supposed to post at least once a day, every day, for the entire month of November.  Typically that's achievable, for me, but lately I've been kind of quiet, haven't I?  Everyone keeps getting sick.  I barely have time to brush my teeth.

Excuses, excuses.  But they won't be little, forever, right?  Someday.....

Finally! Someone besides me who knows what NaNoWriMo is! I did it last year - met the word quota but didn't finish the novel. For this year, I took a 10 page story beginning from last winter and am working on that. 9000 words so far! Hope you can join us next year Amy - I'm sure you've got it in you!

I've done NaNo for years. So far two of my winning NaNos are published (or soon to be published) and a third winning one is out on submission. I too have three kids, but no dog. Maybe next year. :)

Heidi - You can do it!!

Liz - wow! Congrats! Not helping my guilt level, though. :)
