Almost December!!!!!!!

First off, can you believe that!?! It’s Christmas next month, people!! 2017 is almost here!!!!!

I know. I’m way ahead of the season right now.

*clears throat politely*

How was your Thanksgiving?

 (Pictures from Pinterest) (I know I’m spamming you with fall leaves right now)



My Thanksgiving was filled with some very yummy food, typical panic moments, and lots of giving thanks. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that we just designate one day a year to giving thanks. I know it’s for the Pilgrims and all, but I think Thanksgiving is also a great reminder that we should give thanks every day.
Here are some pics of dessert, because who doesn’t love dessert?
  Maybe this is why I wasn’t as hungry as I should have been around dinner time….

Yes. These apple slices on the right taste as good as they look. Cinnamon, sugar, lemon…..
I would send some to everyone if I could.
Home-made pie is awesome, even though pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite.
*ends rave about pie*



Sorry, yes, there has been more to the week than pies. In fact, I finished my nano novel!
*freaks out*
After my mad writing spree, I ran out of steam. Like, completely. Those last 15k were  the hardest I’ve ever written. My characters stopped cooperating. My villain’s dialogue got horrible. And I think I had too many explosions.
I made 66k total. Which is unheard of for me lately. I’ve had a problem in the past couple months of being unable to write anything under 100k. I was almost nervous that Verity would be too short.
So I took my main characters skydiving at the end.
Don’t worry: they had parachutes.
Fellow Nanoers, keep going!!! The finish line is so close!!! We’ve got this πŸ˜‰
Keep your eyes open on Wednesday, because I’ll be having a summary-of-the-month post (probably titled: Craziest Writing Month of My Life)

What’s your favorite kind of pie? If you’re a Nanoer, where are you at?

    YAY for finishing your novel! Congrats! And I totally get the 'villain's dialogue got bad' cos mine's also heading that way πŸ™
    I'm almost at 50k (HAPPINESS!) but I don't think I'll be able to finish my actual story by the end of the month. But at least I'd have hit 50k πŸ™‚
    Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! Glad your Thanksgiving went well; since I'm not American I don't celebrate it, but you're right: we should be thankful every day πŸ™‚

    Thank you, Amy!

    Oh my gosh doesn't dialogue just kill at times? ugh. I've found that the best way to improve is to listen to other people talk in real life (not eavesdropping though, of course!)

    I hope your novel is going well, even if you don't finish it this month. Getting 50k is awesome by itself; keep going! πŸ˜€
