The Sunday Salon

Welcome back after another seemingly uneventful week. I wish I had more book related news for you but there has not been a lot of reading. I get in a couple of chapters a day in The 19th Wife. You can watch for my positive review about it on Tuesday. Then I hope to work a little faster through Sarah's Key.

It's difficult to squeeze in time for reading when you're writing a novel. It is the beginning of NaNoWriMo Week 2 and I am at 10,328 words. I've officially passed last year's quitting point so I am really jazzed. This year I made an outline and it has helped to keep me focused and moving forward. The story is flowing nicely. I am happy with my progress and I remain excited about my storyline. I already have a few people expecting to read it. Okay, so they are my husband, Mom and my pastor's wife, but their opinions mean a lot to me. I also wonder what some of my blogging buddies would think of it. If I ever do get published you can look for my book on LibraryThing's Early Reviewer Program. :-)

Anyway, have a great week everyone. The weather here has finally turned cold (by that I mean in the 60s) so I will be watching the leaves changing color while sipping my hot mug of cocoa. You should do the same.

A lot of people were busy with writing and other things this week too I noticed. Glad to see your story is coming along. And you are reading some fascinating books. I want to read Sarah's Key myself. I'm doing Sunday Salon now too.
