National Write a Novel Month

So November is National Write a Novel Month. I’m serious. And because I’m bored and have nothing to do except raise two kids, work, get on a budget, pay off debt and keep my house and sanity in check…I accepted the challenge.

Oh – and I tore my rotator cuff. While skiing in Aspen with JayLo. I mean playing tennis in Sonoma with Owen Wilson. Or I fell on the stairs. I can’t be troubled with the details of the injury – the point is…I’m wounded and apparently need surgery.

Because mama always likes her a little medical problem around the holidays and when she’s trying to SAVE MONEY AND GET OUT OF DEBT.

So I’m going to write a novel this month. And it’s going to be great. And I’m going to think of the storyline any day now. I. just. know. it.

    So sorry about your rotator cuff. That stinks. My recommendation is to farm everything, and I do mean everything, out. Other people can wrap packages for you, shop, cook, etc. This is the one time you can just sit back and let people help. I broke my arm on Christmas Day morning four years ago. It was quite the drama, but everyone helped get dinner together, and I sat like a diva, enjoying my pain pills and a glass of the grape. In some ways, it was the best Christmas I have had in years, because I focused on the people, not the process. Maybe there's a lesson here.

    Maybe a novel titled "Stop the insanity!" or "Live the Chaos!" (which is MY motto!)

    Good luck! You can do it! 🙂
