The power of the ocean is amazing.
While waiting for the hurricane to hit, I'm also waiting for Thursday and the beginning of NaNoWriMo. My blogging schedule will be shifting for the month of November and doing my daily word count will be my primary goal. This is because I will still be working, a lot, and November is a very busy month for us at the shop. So, instead of dealing with my emails and my blog in the morning as I have for years upon years, I will be handling them in the evenings after work instead. I will still post my daily blog - I've been doing this for too long not to continue. I value the communication that it allows me. But I need to focus on my novel and that has to come first for me next month. Even my reading will take a fall. Instead of reading while I'm having my morning coffee, I'll be setting up my laptop and continuing to write.
I promise I will not start my novel with
"It was a dark and stormy night..."
I think that the daily word quantities I've scheduled for myself are within reason. And if I can keep to the word total (or exceed them if I am on a roll with a character or a scene) I will succeed in my 50,000 word goal by the end of the month. But what's even more important to me than any word total or goal is that I get this story written. Daniel and Madeline's story has to see the light of day.
I adore crop circles. Real? Fake? I don't care.
They are simply beautiful and so complex.
So as we wait for a variety of things to happen over the next few days, my thoughts revolve around in so many intersecting circles that I am almost dizzy. I send White Light out to all of my friends as we approach Samhain. Goddess Bless, be safe.
