¡Ay, caramba! The world formed an unbroken line leading to my front door yesterday. Silly me when they knocked, I answered. I was behind schedule before my alarm woke me, and a never-ending game of Whac-A-Mole ensued. By the time my regularly scheduled 9 pm writing session rolled around, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. The day’s tardy theme continued, but undeterred, at 10:30, I sat down to write. Pounding keys is more fun than whacking moles and more satisfying. The evening’s count was a whopping 250 words, but I am ecstatic with every single syllable.

Are you writing for NaNo?

How is Day 18 progressing?

November 17 Day 17 of NaNoWriMo 2020

My NaNo word count is going nowhere fast. But after major surgery and a mandatory week’s stay in the hospital, my sweetheart is home and doing well. My unrelenting optimism was hard at work, assuaging my general anxiety and dismissing the fleeting moments of dread that threatened to overwhelm me in the weeks leading up to his operation. Each passing day brings increasing relief as life begins to resemble my memory of what I once considered normal.

The remodeling project crawls towards its inevitable conclusion, and my muse is finding her space in my life again. I have missed my friend, and I look forward to spending more time writing with her.

Are you writing for NaNo?

How is Day 17 progressing?
