This year's NaNoWriMo has turned my brain to mush. I crawled across the finish line at about 11:45pm local time and logged in approximately 51,000 words of original content on my new manuscript. Of course the website was overloaded with traffic at the time, causing me a lot of anxiety that I would not be able to validate my word count in time. Cue my techie husband who took over and helped me get around my content loading issues. Love that guy!

And now I'm exhausted. I'm really more of a slow-and-steady-wins-the-race sort of writer. I amble through my stories rather than sprint. I think this is the primary reason why NaNo is such a challenge for me.

I'm not going to lie...I am writing a kick-ass story at the moment. It has so much to love. Bank robberies, Old West shoot outs, indecent proposals, scandal, intrigue, betrayal...OH...MY...GOD. My only regret is that I need to finish editing A Dream and A Kiss before I can really focus on polishing up Book 3 (I'm thinking of a good title for it, but for now it's just B3). They're sequential but don't build on each other, and it really wouldn't make sense to release B3 before B2.

So, back to work I go...
