Yup, I’m writing a new mystery.

National Novel Writing Month

We, the crazy writers of #nanowrimo are attempting to write the rough draft of a novel in 30 days. The concept: If you write 1,667 words every day in the month of November, you will have the first draft of a 50,000 word novel. I have written approx. 20,000 words thus far. My work in progress (WIP) does not yet have a title, but when I know, you’ll know.

(I have to get back to writing, now.)


You might ask where I was last Tuesday. You open your email or social media and expect my weekly blog. You SUSPECT I am getting all ready for the National Novel Writing Month #Nanowrimo in November and have not a minute to spare.

Good guess, but you would be wrong. My computer…stopped. It…just…stopped…working. Robert and I did what we could, testing cords and monitors. Everything was in working order. The computer just would not work.

To the rescue came our wonderful, caped-superhero-computer-fixer, Ester Watson. Although she had to take the tower home with her, she delivered it back the next day in perfect working order. All is right with the world, and on November first, I started my new novel. Wish me luck!
