And a tiny beady break. The month of November is National Novel Writing Month. So I'm working on a novel - it's one that's been inside my head for a while. The challenge/goal is to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. There are lots of tools, fellow writers, and many, many pep talks. There are also face-to-face gatherings which can be good for a wanna-be hermit like myself. So, as of this moment, I am on schedule with my daily word count and we will see what happens. If I can just get the bare bones down, I will feel like I've accomplished a lot.
In the meantime, I'm keeping my bead angel very busy. She has four projects and she is busily beading samples. All of those will be downloadable tutorials. She beads samples, I write tutorials. I learned several years ago that I cannot do it all and having a dear friend like her is indeed priceless. She is an angel, a cheerleader, a shoulder, a confidant, and a soul mate all wrapped up in one wonderful package. Love you, Gaye!
And in family news:
And he is due in the spring! Grandson Number 4 is eagerly awaited by everyone!
It's November and it seems that it's time for Thanksgiving - I am always very thankful for my family. I am also thankful for friendships, old and new. I only wish I had been taught at a much earlier age how to stay in touch with people. So, oddly enough, I am very thankful for social media! I have reconnected with folks that I've know since I was in 8th grade. That being said, I am thankful for this every day and not just during the month of November.
I am seeing a "30 days of Thanksgiving" going around Facebook. So what are you thankful for right now?
