Lunacy...Sheer Lunacy

Good Monday morning! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Here at Casa Leone, we took full advantage of the gorgeous weather. We strolled through the meadow, flew a kite on the hill and roasted marshmallows. All low-key, relaxing and good.

Oh! Before I forget, Dru asked what kind of funny movies we watched Friday night. There were two: "Young Frankenstein" and "While You Were Sleeping". Both old favorites, and they went well with our pizza and cookies.

So, life sounds fairly normal here, doesn't it? I'll bet you're wondering what the lunacy title is about, aren't you? Well, it's like this...

November is just a few weeks away. And if it's November, it's got to be National Novel Writing Month.

If you have an inkling about what's going on in our lives right now, you'll know that the last thing I need is to participate in NaNo this year. But I've successfully completed the November challenge for the last four years. It would be a shame not to at least give it a go this year, don't you think?

Lunacy. It's madness, I tell you.

But I'm going to do it. What's the worst that can happen, NaNo-wise? I don't make the 50,000 words?


It's hard to scare me at this point, so I'm going for it. Who knows? Maybe the diversion will be good for us, and watching the nutty November novel grow might be just exactly what we need right now. We'll see...

Good morning to you!

In this case, lunacy is good. I can't wait to hear what novel you write in November. Will it be a mystery; a romance; a historical?

Have a great Monday!

I've been considering doing NaNoWriMo because I've had problems staying on track with my writing and I thought it might give me a jumpstart. On the other hand, I have 2 releases in Dec. Write or promote? Is it possible to do both in large amounts at the same time? Maybe if I could get a hiatus from my day job.

Good luck with the lunacy. I have a 12/1 deadline so NaNo won't work for me this year!

Your weekend sounds lovely!
