So, I´m full into NaNo (my husband laughs whenever I tell him – he just doesn´t understand it :D), but I don´t want to neglect my blog like I´ve done in the past weeks. Here enters Katy Upperman and her wonderful ideas. She came up with this template to keep readers updated on her progress and I´m totally using it 😀 Thanks Katy
Progress (word count or a general status update): I´m behind on the official daily word count needed to complete BUT I´m writing more than usual and I plan on writing this weekend as well.
Current Mood: Excited and tired. And wondering where my WiP is going. I now have a creepy scene which wasn´t planned at all (think possessed grandmother crawling on the ceiling….)
“When asked, ‘How do you write?’
I invariably answer, ‘one word at a time.’”
– Stephen King
Goal as of Today: I want to continue using my time in my commute to its full potential. That means actually typing 300 more words than usual.

“Sure,” I say the word but I don´t believe it. All my certitudes are gone in smoke. And damn it, I really want a puff a nicotine.
Non-NaNo News (because life DOES go on)
There is this little querying thing I´m doing these days 😀 And I entered Baker´s Dozen Auction
. I still have to make it through the slush pile but I´m entry #100….The first submission window closed so fast, my head was spinning.
In My Downtime (ha!) I’m Reading
You Should Read This Blog Post:
Since I started querying, I´ve been looking at ways to release some of the tension. I mean, as you well know, we work so hard on our books, pouring our ideas into the word and a lot of ourselves as well…and sending those words into the big wild world is exhalariting and frightening. So, to keep things light, I read that post several time: That Awesome Day You Get to HearFrom Ryan Gosling
: With the release of Dear Teen Me
, I sent my picture to Erin
as she is preparing something special for the blog tour…This would be my advice to my teen self.
