Today is for writing - LONGHAND

Yup - it's that time of the month again. The first Tuesday of the month is my tech-free day.

But today is also the first day of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). And I'm participating for the first time. So, in addition to my regular bit of monthly cleaning (a few things that don't need to be dealt with too often), I'll be attempting to get some serious writing done on my "replotted" biblical fiction book set during the time of King Saul - with a pen and paper. For the unfamiliar, the goal is to write 50,000 words during the month of November. So I'm starting longhand.

See you back here soon. Oh, and by the way, X is for "I'm Xtra glad this letter fell on my Tech-free Tuesday!" LOL

  3. LONGHAND??! Brave woman you ;-)


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
