Happy, happy November.
This is my favorite month of the year. It begins in the ashes of Halloween, with Samhain and Day of the Dead. It’s my birthday month and my personal new year. It’s when I generally try to step back and revaluate what’s working and put an axe into what isn’t. November is where I start planning for the next year.
One of the things I’m after is getting back into shape. While I know we have a long, dark winter ahead of us, I think by next Spring we will be back to our new normal. StokerCon and Camp Necon are already on the schedule. There’s a lot happening in 2023 and I don’t want to spend it huffing and puffing with my pandemic flab.
No Nanowrimo for me this year. I’ll be aiming to get the rest of Soft Deadlines up on Kindle Vella. Remember last year when I tried to write a romance for Nanowrimo but the best I could do was a paranormal dark humor about a blue, Australian incubus named Duncan who was too tired out to perform? Yep, it’s been done for ages. I just wanted to give it a little polish before I posted it all.
