I missed last month.  I had the flu.  I knew what day it was.  I thought about it and that's as far as I went with that.

This month I really shouldn't post.  I have done very little writing.  My cold/flu hung on for four weeks.  Every time I thought I was starting to feel better it would slam me down again.  I'm all better now and while my progress in Nano is s-l-o-w it is good to be writing again.

  3. Aw. One day at a time, eh? I get these nasty head colds (thank you Florida--could you have just a few less allergens?) and I know how much it slows you down. Keep pressing forward, eh?

  13. lately, I did not give plenty of thought to giving responses on site page reports and have positioned responses even less. Reading through your pleasant content, will assist me to do so sometimes.

  14. I can sympathize - I had such grand plans for writing and editing over the holidays, but the flu made it rounds not once, but twice, through our house.

    Thanks for posting - sometimes just writing something, no matter how brief, can make all the difference in getting back on track.

  15. I'm avoiding what I wrote in November and not sure how to interpret this avoidance. On the other hand, a group of us who participated in write-ins together are planning to get together on Sunday afternoons, starting this coming weekend. That ought to be a boost! What I wrote for NaNo was so dreadfully painful, a memoir rather than a novel, about an ongoing situation. Guess that means I am not out of the woods yet. (Can't see the forest for the trees.) With apologies for the cliche-speak. Good luck to you!
