Nostalgic Much?

It happens this time of year – nostalgia.

This Thanksgiving Thursday at YA Stands I blogged about my all-time favorite classic, Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. I’m also a diehard fan of the televised mini-series. It’s a tossup between that and Pride & Prejudice.

Let’s call it a tie and give thanks for love stories that persist through the ages.

Seize the Moment

The next time you have 10 minutes before you need to leave home or are waiting on your soup to simmer, see how much you can write in that brief time slot.

If you’re like me, you usually wouldn’t bother trying to do anything productive towards your novel in such a measly amount of time. You’d tweet or browse the World Wide Web; snack or stare off into space.

But you know the old adage: Every little bit adds up. Give it a go and make ‘a hundred here, a hundred there’ your new mantra. Pretty soon it will add up to thousands of words and hundreds of pages. 

NaNoWriMo Update: 11,670 words (four days behind). My mom’s in town and I’m making time with her a priority especially after losing my grandmother early Monday. Mom's birthday is Saturday so Seb, Cosmo and I are off to spend it with family on neighboring Orcas Island. I do plan a WriMo revival at some point this month.
