Further delays

Unfortunately, the November Positive Words magazine is still not ready but I have been assured it will be available for pick up on Monday and I will post them all out . . . πŸ™‚

Thanks for your patience and kind emails.

My NaNoWriMo novel is still going well and I’ve now passed the 30,000 word mark. If I can keep this up I’ll reach the target several days early and maybe even keep going and finish the story (I’m sure it will have a bit to go after 50,000 words)

I’m thoroughly enjoying it. How are your novels going?

Last Day…

…to post your entries in both the Positive Words End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition and the October Mini-competition.

They don’t have to arrive by today – as long as they are posted πŸ™‚

For detail see the previous post.

And… THANK YOU everyone for the great support!

Today’s writing prompt:

Can we fix it?

Yes! We can πŸ™‚

Today I’m Sandra the word builder making a last minute effort to finish the NaNoWriMo challenge. I knew when I started it would be even more difficult that in past years to find the time to write but still really wanted to try. (NaNo is terribly addictive!) Those distractions, hiccups and other commitments took over for much of the time but it’s not over until it’s over and my story is being co-operative so…

Can I do it? 15,000 words in two days? I’ll give it my best shot!
