Grateful to be a Winner & a Gift: ROW80 & NaNo Updates

Monday night, at 10pm West Coast time, I did it. I passed 50K.

I needed to write a bit more to wrap things up, but I couldn't help but validate and official be declared a winner. I nailed the last few words yesterday. Next week, the editing begins.

I'm so grateful. November is not the month I would pick for writing a novel, with the holidays looming and general end-of-year anxiousness. But I've written a book the last two years, so something about it must work for me.

I am so grateful for the support and encouragement I get from my writing community. At this time of thanksgiving, I hope you all know how much you mean to me.

As a small way to say thank you, the eBook of Chasing Memories is FREE on Amazon today, November 27, through December 1.

I'd love some help spreading the word. I have some prewritten social media goodies below to make it easier.

Kudos on the finished NaNoWriMo count, Tia. There is something very nice about that "Did it!" banner...

Of course, as you say, the editing begins in a few days. But until then, there is turkey. And talking turkey... Thank you--for being a great writing friend, for being inspirational, and for the ebook. Will tweet it...

CONGRATULATIONS, my dear friend! Feels good, huh? :)

I knew you could do it. I wouldn't choose November, either, but what do I know? haha

MANY hugs and a huge


to you!

Tia, that is so awesome, so soon after a cross-country move! =)

And editing right away?! Impressive. I need at least afew weeks, but, better, a few months to a year, before I edit - maybe why I like to have multiple projects is to give them all that cooling time. Being able to do it right away - that fascinates me!

This is a lovely post, and my life is definitely brighter with you in it!
