NaNo and more

My NaNoWriMo word count is right at the halfway mark- 25,000-ish and the story is coming along nicely. However, a new story has sprung up in my head and is demanding that I get started on it but I can't, I have to finish Logan's Song first before I can start something new.

I did go ahead and write up the outline for it so that I don't forget anything, but that's as far as I'm going with it.

My aunt is having open heart surgery the end of this month and will be staying with me while she recovers. I'm praying that all will go well and that the doctor's prognosis will be the reality. He's hoping for a more comfortable life for my aunt when he repairs some damage she sustained during a heart attack when she was only 30 years old.

We all woke up late on Wednesday because the power was out and our alarms didn't go off. Electricity was out in 9 counties and was out for just over 24 hours. That was an adventure and boy was I ever glad when the power was restored. Hubby has a line on a generator so next time, we'll be able to have lights and water when the power's out. YAY!!

Thanksgiving promises to be a quiet affair. We'll just stay home and have a nice quiet dinner with my aunt before her surgery. I'm looking forward to it.

Happy Thanksgiving to You!

Hi Danielle

Just thought I'd drop by. Seems like you're on track for Nano but I'm sure the storm set you back a bit.

Good luck on finishing!
