Day passes into night,
and then darkness becomes light.
All is not as lost as it seems,
for autumn can spark new dreams.

Just having some fun! Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and don’t stress too much about the preparations as most likely it will all work out in the end, so enjoy! Now, what are you thankful for? ~M
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus
Happy November, focus on your blessings this month. What are you grateful for? I challenge to you to come up with one thing everyday that you are thankful for.
I will start. I am thankful for my family, and a wife that always goes above and beyond what is expected. ~M

Well I’ve passed 50,000 words, 171 double spaced type written pages and still have more to write. I hit the goal to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November with 3 days to spare, not to bad considering after 15 days I had less than 14,000 words and no idea where this story was actually going.
But now here I am just over 51K and still have some ideas to put down on paper. The last week has been a burst of writing, I love the creative fire that burns brightly at times. There have been challenges and setbacks along the way including especially my own negative thinking. The editing will come later and right now the novel probably doesn’t make much sense but we’ll deal with that. For now I will rest in the knowledge that I reached my goal and can cross this one off the bucket list. Getting it published is another item on the bucket list entirely ! 🙂
I owe a huge thanks to a lot of people for encouraging me but most especially –
