I am back to writing after having taken that day off. I'm slowly gaining back the ground I lost. I started yesterday a little over 3,000 words behind and by the time I stopped writing I was 1,900 words behind. I'm hoping to get caught up either today or tomorrow.
Slow going write now as my brain is exhausted and wants to shut down. At the moment I wouldn't say no to a long winter's nap. Still the wordcount looms, like an anvil placed above my head. No idea where that similie came from but I'm so not editing this post.
Thanksgiving at my house will be largely the responsibility of the men in the family. I will make my famous mashed potatoes but other than that I will be writing. Should be an interesting experience.
To all of my American friends I wish a happy Thanksgiving Day, one during which you truly find the grace to give thanks for your blessings, however small. To my Canadian friends, happy Thanksgiving last month (you lucky people, no holiday to interfere with NaNo up there) To everyone else: good wishes for a peaceful and plentiful Thursday.
See you all next week. Keep writing.
