Ending the Hiatus aka NANOWRIMO is OVER! + Christmas Adventure Author Take-Over Stop #4

Good morning, dear Reader!!! And a very Happy December to you!

As you can see, snow is falling on the blog, and I’m BACK from my hiatus!!! Huzzah! Oh, I’ve missed blogging!

But I did manage to WIN NANOWRIMO for the first time ever!!!! *does a happy dance and tosses confetti*

Today, I’m just popping in to say “I’M BACK!” I’ve got a lot of fun things planned for the blog this month to make up for the silence through November. I have my promised vlog all ready to go, because I want to keep it reasonable, I’m splitting it into 4 different videos so it’s a little more bite-sized. I’ve got a couple of awesome books I read in November (yes, GASP I managed to read some books in the midst of all the furious writing!) that I can’t wait to tell you about, and some Christmas-y posts, and just lots of fun things and I hope I can fit it all into a single month!

But for today… since it’s Saturday… I’m mostly just popping in to say “HI! I’m BACK!!!” AND I am helping out with the Christmas Adventure Author Take-Over event going on over at Facebook, so for those of you who have come here seeking clues…. here is mine:

I… have no idea what that means. But I hope it helps you on your journey, and I wish you well on the continuation of your quest!

NaNoWriMo stands for “National Novel Writing Month” and is a challenge to writers to attempt to write 50,000 words in the month of November. Everyone drinks way too much caffeine and goes a little nuts, but we all know we’re writing the words together. You “win” by hitting that 50k goal (it’s supposed to be all in one project, though the project doesn’t have to be “finished” in that word-count, and some people go the “rebel” route and write 50k but spread it across multiple projects, which also counts), and I DID!!!! Turrim Archive book 4 is 50,000 words closer to completion!

Perhaps my view of your blog isn’t quite right because I don’t see any snow falling on your blog…. ?
Just want to make sure I’m not missing anything. :)

Thanks for alerting me to that! I typed it, but then between being up late writing the post and going to bed, I forgot to activate the snow on my blog!!! It should be working now!
