Congrats to my critique partner!

Just wanted to send out a e-congrats to my critique partner who just sold her first novel to Samhain Publishing! YEAH! I'm so proud of her! I always knew she was going to make it! Her stories are funny and romantic, so when her book is on the shelf, I'll certainly let everyone know so you can rush out to buy it!

In other news, I'm participating in the this month. It's the National writing month and the goal is to get 50,000 words written by 11:59 pm on November 30. It doesn't have to be perfect, just a rough draft. I'm using this time to get my act together for my paranormal series entitled The Storms. Tagline, "They travel to the past with memories of the future." I'm excited to be getting this going after about 10 years of plotting and planning. I'm currently at 10,000 words, so I'm 1/5 of the way there! Wish me luck!

I also am starting my third week of weight watchers. A while back I decided to do something about myself and quit making excuses. Two weeks ago today I took the plunge and did what I swore to myself I'd never HAVE to do. I joined. Two weeks and I'm only down 2 pounds. Of course, last week was my birthday week, Halloween, and yesterday we had a pot luck at our church. The week was doomed from the beginning, but I didn't GAIN, i just certainly didn't lose any. I'm exercising every morning (believe me when I say pushing a double stroller with 50 pounds worth of kids that has unoiled wheels will certainly get the heart pumping) and i'm feeling pretty good. Sugar...sugar just needs to die. If I could avoid sugar, I might be able to do more than 2 pounds a week. My goal is 25 pounds by January 1. We'll see how far I get! 2 pounds is better than nothing, right?

Anyway, I won't be writing much this month with the nanowrimo so don't look for me much until December where I'll have lots to report about all our Christmas events!

Have a great November! And congrats again to Jennifer, you rock (and I'm jealous!)!

LOL! Wow. Someone's jealous of ME??
I find that very funny.
But I'm sure I'll be able to reciprocate the feeling soon enough!

Good luck with Nano!!
