“Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.”
–Karen Ravn, Author

It’s the mid-way point in November and many of my friends and peers are participating in NaNoWriMo alongside moi. I can happily say that it’s been productive and although I’m busting butt, I still have to make sure I don’t get totally burnt out trying to perform. After all, I want to write a good story so regardless if I meet the 50,000 word count to win, I’m focusing on the quality. I’m not one to do a rough and dirty draft. I try to be a clean writer so it’s less editing work. The real truth is that I hate editing so, hence, the fanatical editing job before I reach the end. I’ve always worked that way so it will be difficult to break the habit. Right now, I’m at the half-way point in my manuscript so this post is appropriate in timing…

Okay, enough about writing…on to more important things…the holidays are coming! SQUEAL! Can you believe Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us and soon it’ll be Christmas. I’ll be honest, the holidays isn’t about the gifts for me but something more meaningful. It’s about being surrounded by family and enjoying each other’s company. It’s about that happy feeling that accompanies the winter season, when the Christmas trees and lights come up and decorations line the streets. Yes, this kid at heart will always see the magic of the holidays.

I hope this Thanksgiving you’ll make more happy memories and pass the tradition on for seasons to come!

Until next time!
