Today’s Sunday Post is coming at’cha on a Monday! It also covers the entire month of November… Whooohoo I’m a rebel. 🙂
Hello! I’m back! Or I should say, the blog is back to its normally scheduled programing after a semi-hiatis in November while I participated (and won!) National Novel Writing Month! I hope November treated you well. I can’t believe it’s already December. The whole idea of Christmas and the end of the year just seems cray cray to me right now.
In celebration of NaNoWriMo, A Book and a Latte had a month long author/writer “How I Write” feature. I’m honored that 19 authors/writers participated! Besides the feature, I let myself take off the month of November from posting reviews, memes (except for my WoW pick!), and blog tours so I could concentrate on writing my novel. Which I now have a first draft of… WHEW!
I did manage to sneak in one audiobook review and a couple of tour posts… here’s a list of posts for November!
