National Novel Writing Month!

It's November 1, and as many of you may know, it's now National Novel Writing Month!  (Also, happy birthday to my dad.)  Are any of my readers participating?  This is my third year; I "won" last year with my High Fantasy Medieval Zombie Apocalypse ... which I pretty much haven't touched since.  :P  This year, I'm trying to write picture books about science-oriented princesses.  If I'm going to make 50,000 words, that's going to be a lot of picture books.  I'm also hosting write-ins at the school/public library.

What does this mean for the blog?  I'm taking a much-needed break, or at least turning down the heat.  I wrote eleven posts last month, and had one guest post.  That's a lot around here.

I will likely post picture book reviews during this time.  I needed to do research.  Plus, those are short and quick.

I'm currently also reading A Game of Thrones in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin.  If you're not familiar, the book is more than 800 pages long, and is perhaps one of the shorter books in the series.  It's also the subject of a hot series on HBO.

Winter is coming, but thoughts of Jon Snow keep me warm.
Best of luck to all who are participating in National Novel Writing Month!
