NaNoWriMo in absentia

You'll have noticed I've not mentioned hide nor hair of NaNoWriMo 2016. That's because I chose not to participate this year. I have so many projects that need to be completed (especially Cabover Cabaret, which needs to be ready for its TBA February 2017 release date), that I decided this November would be about housekeeping.

In a way, I suppose you could say that I am participating in NaNo since I'm working on all projects, large and small, that need completed, but I'm doing so without the goal of 50,000 words of new material. I'm two chapters and an epilogue away from finishing Comedy of Rain. I'm working on the cover art for Cabover Cabaret, as well as final edits. I'm so excited to debut that cover art, too, as I'm having a lot of fun with it.

Back to Comedy of Rain, though. The writing may still be slow going, but it's progressing. Especially now that I've found the song for Franklin's chapter.

I'm looking forward to having a completed manuscript "on my desk", hopefully by the end of November. Fingers crossed!
