November always seemed like a slightly strange month to pick for trying to crank out a novel — if you’re in the U.S. at least. Thanksgiving can take up such a huge amount of time that it could make thirty available days into something closer to twenty-five, not to mention the time and stress involved in planning ahead for it. But since this year is the first for a while in which we aren’t either travelling thousands of miles away or hosting someone who’s flown in from thousands of miles away, it looks like we’ll be having a comparatively low-key time of it — meaning that, among other things, I no longer have a good reason to avoid NaNoWriMo. I’m sure you’ll be able to take a good guess at the subject.
I’m planning to be back on Wednesday, December 4th. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my venture into the 1920s: Arsenic And Old Cake. Happy Halloween!
