Funny how the seasons change exactly when you want them to.
I was so ready for cold weather and rain and early nights, and now that it’s November, here they are all at once! My summer-obsessed self finds it hard to believe I could feel so happy walking down Market in my puffy jacket and scarf, carrying an umbrella just in case. Yet here I am, bundled up on my bus ride home, secretly enjoying the 5pm darkness because it means I can creepily look into everyone’s beautiful San Francisco homes as they start decorating for the holidays.
November also means NaNoWriMo, a.k.a. my attempt to write a 50,000-word novel in a month, a.k.a. my becoming a complete hermit for 30 days. So far, I’m staying on track, just barely:
I generally average just enough words per day before I reward myself with an episode (or two) of Mad Men because IT’S 2015 AND I’M FINALLY OBSESSED WITH MAD MEN. More on that later….probably in December.
Anyway, this was just a short PSA to let you know I might be on a month-long hiatus while trying to churn out a novel (or something like it). I’ll let you know how it goes.

Good luck on your novel, Nikki! I was reading about Mac stuff and recently came across this and thought of you. You might like it? http://www.appleworld.today/blog/2015/10/21/the-soulmen-want-you-to-use-ulysses-to-write-your-nanowrimo-novel-for-free
I, too, will probably be a hermit for a bit. Laura is due in like 3 weeks-ahhhhhhHHHHHH!
Thanks Kyle!! I’m definitely going to check that out. I’ve been looking for a simple/clean tool to write with other than Google Docs…and even better that they offer it free to NaNoWriMo participants! :)
And AHHHHHHHHHH I’m so excited for you and Laura! I can’t believe it’s coming up so soon. I can’t wait to meet Baby Scheuerlein!!
