NaNo NaNo

National Novel Writing Month has gotten off to a rollicking start. With 70,000 participants worldwide this November, the NaNo website experienced snail-paced servers, and as I understand it a crash or two. Not to be daunted, the folks in my "Dirty Dozen" group have been racking up the words. Gabriella in Toronto crossed 4500 words before going off to her crochet class last night. Rick--a flapdoodling 4009-ish before tending his garden of bones and greens in the Carolinas. I move a little slower--about the pace of the NaNo server. But, I am moving forward and writing new words. And surprises are happening. I love the surprises!
It is spitting snowflakes in Michigan and the tea is warm. So are the slippers. Life is good.
Now, if the dogs would just stop barking at the paving company resurfacing the driveway next door, I could get back to the bikers and the Molotov cocktail.
