Okay, so I checked my blog to make sure today’s post had been posted, and what do I find? I hadn’t even written the blasted thing! So you’re getting my freshest, pre-caffeine update here.
Long and the short of it: not much progress this month.
Sure, I’ve done my blog posts, both here and over at Christian Children’s Book Review. And, I was able to get out one evening and work on a new scene in Homebody that needed to be added.

But quite honestly, since we found out about my son’s illness, writing has come down off the priorities list from somewhere around #3 or #4 to maybe #6 or #7 (lower when I’m feeling pressure to find a new place to live.)
I know this is just a phase, and I’ll eventually be able to pick up more steam, especially since I think we’re seeing improvements with my son already, but it’s still frustrating.
On the upside, a friend of mine and I had a conversation over the weekend that has me brainstorming on some freelance ideas that would merge my two passions: writing and politics. Maybe I’ll be the next Michelle Malkin. (I’m not as bombastic as Ann Coulter.) So, those are good prospects. I’ll have to see where that leads.
With the holidays coming up, I know I’ll be in the car a bit more. Hopefully, that means I’ll be able to spend some time on the trusty laptop and do some writing. (No, I don’t get carsick.)
Anyway, there’s my update. Please have a safe and happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and my out-of-the-country followers, enjoy your week.
Until next time,
