The First Snow and Other Things I’m Up to My Neck In

Well, we got our first snow yesterday and this morning. Suppose to only get a few cm and came away with more than that. Probably a good 6 inches (15 cm). And I don’t have a shovel!

We left our shovel at the old house by mistake. Now we need to go get another one. Maybe after the snow melts. 😉 Because man it’s cold out there! It’s -9c (16F) and I don’t wanna go out. I am NOT ready for this yet!


Other news, I’m still working on the final segment of my serial story “On The Run”. I’m so sorry it’s been taking me so long to finish, but I will get it done this week! My characters have taken over the story and instead of butting heads with them like I had the last week, I’m letting them run with it! (Pun intended 😉 )

I haven’t been posting much lately, but I have been busy writing! I just finished my paid job ( I do like getting paid). It was a 12 page newsletter for a big business. Got it done with a few days to spare. Whew!

I’m also working on some posts for this week. Some are going to be about ghosts and goblins and things that go bump in the night! Because, well it is coming up on Halloween and that just yells ghost stories! One is a real ghost story! It’s about a poltergeist that lived with us when I was a kid. Stay tuned for that one!

This Friday is November 1st and I’m getting geared up for NaNoWriMo again this year. Am I crazy or what? Okay, don’t answer that. For those of you that weren’t around here last November, NaNo is a month-long event where you write 50,000 words. It can be for a new story, poems, a bunch of short stories, anything really. The goal is to have a great start on a book after the month is over with. It’s a thrill ride all month!

Last year I did it and won. I’m still in editing mode on the book I worked on last year called “The Key”.

This year I am going off in a new direction for NaNo. I’ll keep you informed with updates all month. Maybe with some excerpts too! I’m also going to be doing other posts here and there. I won’t abandon you, I promise! Of course I will be doing Friday Fictioneers also! I love doing that and I’m not giving it up.

So, that’s what I have planned for your reading enjoyment. I’m going to be busy, busy, busy, but I’m loving it!
