Sorry I've been gone so long, but my life has been hectic since the ACFW conference. In early October I went to my friend's house to work on two books we've started. At the end of the week, I drove to my niece's house to be with her while she underwent a catherization. The next week my niece had open heart surgery. I stayed with her during the next two weeks while she recuperated.

After I came home, my mother was not feeling well, my friend came to visit me because she was presenting the November program at my local writing group, ETWA. I had to clean house and then helped Elaine read her first galleys for her solo book, Sonora, which will come out in E-Book form sometime in 2008.

Amid all of that, I've been participating in NaNoWriMo. To date, I have written 22,512 words which makes me 27,488 words from my goal. And I have only 10 days left, so that means I have to write 2,749+ words a day in order to make that goal. Will I do it? I pray so. But I have to attend 3 more 3-hour H & R Block Skills for Success Training sessions between now and November 30 and go to my critique group meeting and sleep and have Thanksgiving guests over the weekend.

Soooooo, I'm officially going on hiatus until after NaNoWriMo. See you then.
