"It's about time!" Maude and Argie screamed each in one of my ears. Yes, I've tried to finish NANOWRIMO in the last few years, but work always seems to pile up at that time.
"You have no excuse," Maude chided. "
"That's right," Argie said, "Now that you're retired, you have the whole month to write."
My arachnid friends stood staring through their eight respective eyes, four legs akimbo on their rather large and rotund bodies. Each had just flown in with Delores from very productive gigs. Maudes eyes, one by one, were already drooping with impending sleep.
I have just signed up to do NANO in November. If you're not familiar with this, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is held each November as a challenge for writers like me who tend to let life and earning a living get in the way of more pleasurable pursuits like writing. NANO still has my blurb from the last time I entered, then didn't follow through. Ironically, I've been thinking of starting a sequel to my first novel, Delores Fletcher, Cobweb Catcher. When I pulled up my rusty account, there it was, title for this sequel, summary and all. So, in the meantime, I'll start rethinking my outline and characters and reread the first novel to further inspire myself along this path.
Oh, and you're wondering who Maude and Argie are? Then, I invite you to read my novel, Delores Fletcher, Cobweb Catcher. And if you like it, please leave a comment on Amazon for me.
