NaNoWriMo.org appears to be down right now and considering how many of us there are, I'm surprised it hasn't gone down more this year.
It's not the novel I thought I was going to write. And I like it better than the idea I had. It's darker and unhappier, but there are things in it that I love so hard even as it's kicking my ass, so I am content.
The next phase is to start writing the nonsense verse for the book, which is going to be a real stretch and challenge as I don't consider myself that great a poet. I write it. I like the bits I've written. I'm not accomplished the way ysabet_wordsmith
is or some others I could name.
And really, how much espionage fantasy poetry have you ever read?
But there it is.

In other news, the Mouse and Bean are off to the pediatrician. The Bean for her next check up and vax shots, the Mouse for the second round of hearing tests.
Here's to hoping it's just wax buildup and not actual hearing loss in that left ear.

And in the category of things that I am thankful for:
All of you.
I made pumpkin pie and whipped cream for you. You are all amazing. Thank you for being in my virtual and not so virtual life.
*kisses you on the cheek*
You're a diamond of the first water.
