Holey-malinky Menogal, yez missed a posting!!! It has been a long time since I didn't get something out on time.

I has an ex-plane-nayshun.

NANOWRIMO. Yup, it has been dominating my days and this weekend past I hit the fifty thousand words and then some.

That means that I met the target set by the system itself. However, having let the main character quite literally take the lead, and by just following along in wonder, I now know there is probably another fifty kay to go. Possibly triple or quadruple that. No way of knowing.

I can see the far end. How we get there is going to be the interesting bit. At least I hope so.

Oh yes, there's going to have to be some culling, some chopping, some sifting, some shifting before the article is presentable; but there may be something worth the having in here.

If not, it's a lot of fun anyway, and the main goal of re-setting writing discipline into each day is working.

My apologies, then, for having missed the deadline - but here I am and all is well!!!


  1. So glad I have no desire to write.

  2. Oh, that is such good news. Sounds like your writing is on a good roll!!!

  3. I agree with Joanne, I will stick to painting.

  4. I so understand. I'm currently editing and publishing a children's book for a friend who is seriously ill (she wrote it in handwritten notes and I'm adding photos etc, and formatting it for Amazon). She doesn't expect it to sell, just something for her grandchildren, a story about their favorite dog, before she leaves us.

  5. I saw the post was missing and correctly guessed the reason!
    Well done on reaching the 50K and them some.
    Cheers, Gail.
    PS Bertie has got his FFF post all prepared for Friday.

  6. Congratulations! Well done on the 50k. Here's to another 50. Or 100. Or 200!

  7. MOL MOL MOL YaYa we were wondering if the writing challenge got you yesterday! DOUBLE CONGRATS ON THE 50K!!!
    Hugs madi and mom

  8. Congrats and well done on the 50K!
