I really wasn't expecting to be gone from here for the entire month of November!  The good news is, I won NaNoWriMo again this year.  And even better news is that I'm exactly at the point in the story I planned to be at when I hit 50K.  I am learning this writing stuff, really absorbing it and figuring out how to use it.  It's so exciting!

Now, of course, comes the tricky part for me--following through when I don't have thousands of others writing alongside me.  For that, I'm putting together an ongoing, online support and cheering group for checking in, checking up and egging on our fellow writers so we don't find ourselves in mid-October next year realizing we haven't worked on our fiction since this year's NaNo ended.

If you're interested in being part of a group like that, please leave a comment so I can keep you posted as we get things up and running on this.

I'm also putting together an experimental art journaling and weight loss/body image group that will be starting in January.  If you'd like info on that one, also leave a comment so I can keep you in the loop.

That's it for now--there's a lot more to write about, but I'm still in that post-NaNo daze.  Plus I have a TGIO party to plan!  I'll be back next week with more to share!
