Now Back To Your Regular Scheduled Program...

I'm sure I lit a few fires with my last post. Don't worry, I try hard not to post political stuff but once every blue moon. Or is that on a Harvest moon?

Eh. I forget.

At any rate, I am sad that I am not participating in NaNoWriMo. It is of my own choice, I know. But alas (yes, I said alas) it is for the best. Progress on the business proposal for my brother-in-law's invention is going well. Should be done with it here soon, then we'll have someone look it over, check our mistakes and such. Much like writing and editing, re-writing and editing even more. Only the end result won't be a book. I like being the one to punch in all the info and edit work as I go. Makes me feel like I am still writing something, even if it isn't my own work.

My actual job is going well, too. I love it. I have yet to say, "I don't want to go to work today..." and whine and sniffle about it. I just whine and sniffle about the snow and go into work anyway. It is fun. The kids are great and my co-workers and boss are the best.

Yes, I mentioned snow. We got a couple of inches during the night. It actually started to snow around dinnertime. Oh well, I do live in Alaska, after all.

I hope day 4/5 is going well for all of my fellow NaNo'ers. I am cheering you on and writing with you in spirit! Too bad business proposals don't count, I'd be well on my way to that 50K!

Have a great weekend everyone and write on!

I'm not participating in NaNoWriMo either.

Doing a final edit on my novel. Being distracted at this stage is most unwise as it's taken me over five years to write it.

Enjoy your weekend too :)

PS. All the best with your brother-in-law's invention. Sounds fascinating.

I'm not doing NaNo wither. I am in the middle of edits and making good progress. I've used my blog to inspire me. In case your interested, I have a contest going on.

Why shouldn't a business proposal count! Keep track of the words anyway, Mel.
Over 6400 words now and counting!

Add a few snippets of dialogue into the business proposal and you've got yourself a novel, hehe. It's a shame you're not doing NaNo, but by the sounds of it you've got enough to work on without having to write a 50k novel too!

Well Miss Wendy, keep your focus! And yes, Alex and Jamie, I should count this proposal but tis true, I have my hands full as it is. I will cheer you all on from the sidelines!
