Some of you may have noticed that my blog was down for a while- some server problem that my darling husband fixed. In the probleming a post was lost, about how accident prone I was the other day. The important bits: I tripped up the stairs, banging myself profusely; Zoe didn’t die and was in no way maimed, due to my motherly getting hurt instead; lots of other little accidents happened that day; being around me is hazardous.

Elizabeth realized that he must be a photographer for a gossip page, and had taken her as the same. She didn
Finding time to write while taking care of the Zoe, planning for Young Women’s, keeping my house in some semblance of order, trying feverishly to catch up on my reading goal, AND having any time to sleep is just dang hard. So, in order to keep my sanity, and not completely give up on my novel which I think has the potential to turn out pretty ok, I’ve amended my NaNoWriMo goal.

NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as the month when all the crazies in the world aren’t on the street because they’re too busy feverishly typing, begins today. I’m going to need a heck of a lot of egging on this year- it’s hard enough to vomit out
