First, catching up...
The leghorn is 9 months old and still hasn't laid a single egg...
The old kitchen cabinet -> bar project stalled out while we waited for a relative to do the sheetmetal work. That just proved we should do it ourselves if we ever get in a hurry.
The final tallies from the garden were interesting. We had green beans, bell peppers, and cucumbers by the armload. Tomatoes and tomatillos and pumpkins were a complete bust.
I got re-energized about writing fiction while participating in this year's nanowrimo. This year was my tenth, and it was the easiest. Which is surprising only because as recently as mid-October I had no idea what I would write this year.
Then the idea just poured out of me and I wrote about 3k words a day until I finished early on the 24th.
I like the story I wrote enough that I'm going to publish it. And I think that's what I'll spend the rest of the winter blogging about. (you have been warned! ;) )
I am trying a completely different approach this time around, and even the audience for the book will be different. I'll talk more about that stuff next time.
