I have plans to participate in NaNoWriMo again this year. It’s been a difficult year so far, and writing has somewhat fallen by the wayside as I deal with grief and loss.
Still, life does go on, and that means writing. I have no idea at the moment what I shall write in November. No clue. But I am sure inspiration will arrive before then.
As a writer, do you have plans to do NaNo?
Some writers swear by the “pantser” method which means no plan, no outline, and only a small idea to begin to write.
The “planner” on the other hand prefers a near complete outline of story, with characters drawn clearly and a good idea of the story and how it will proceed.
I tend to be a “pantser” although last year I did work with a rough outline.
Writers, let’s do this together, no matter which method you use.
It isn’t long until NaNo begins.

I have been busy again this past week, with phone calls to be made and arrangements for switching accounts to my name.
I gathered all of my late husband’s clothing together, folded them neatly and packed them. Then my son and I took them all to the Salvation Army.
I didn’t cry.
Someone, I hope, will find the warm shirts, the pants and socks to be of use. Someone, I like to think, that needs them and can’t afford to buy new.
This is now me, a new widow, learning to be single again.
I love the photo above of the northern lights. Have you been lucky enough to see them for yourself? If not, it is truly a spectacular sight. I have been fortunate to see them many times.
The lights appear often during bitter cold nights, when it is too cold to venture outside, but somehow I always do go out. There is something about the sky that draws me to it and I don’t mind the cold.
My bit of wisdom for this week.
Be sure to have an up to date will, a power of attorney and a personal directive. This is important to help those left behind.
