As you can see, I didn't quite make my NaNo total but I got over 40k written in November which, considering how crazy life ALWAYS seems to be in November is pretty good. I finished, sent, and sold a novella, started my next story, sent the partial to my editor, carried on with the story, took a long weekend to visit my mom, and spent a lot of time chaufeurring kids around. I'm happy.
Today I'm working on the copy edits of The Rebel Rancher (coming out next June) and I've cried twice and I still adore my hero, so yay! This was possibly my favourite book to write. I told my editor it IS actually hard to write the next book after a "fairy dust" book, but after her thoughts on the partial I've had a good think about it and I'm excited about making a few tweaks and carrying on.

This past weekend my sisters were here and we did a huge shopping trip on Saturday. They left Sunday afternoon around 2:30; my daughter had to be at a local community centre to sing for a seniors party at 2:50. She did great. Last night, to unwind, we put White Christmas on and decorated our gingerbread house. It was the perfect way to end the crazy weekend.
