Enter into the world of the Paranormal with me, if you dare. ;)

My RWA chapter, Olympia Romance Writers of America, engaged in our annual holiday luncheon at a local Seafood Restaurant on Saturday the 11th. I’m proud of myself (and you can be too) :) that I did not overeat as I usually do at our luncheons. The Salmon at the place we meet is just TOO GOOD!

Then when I got home from church on Sunday, Santa had arrived EARLY!! I was in a back room and my boyfriend carried in an LCD TV that he said Santa had left out on my porch!!

A cork board for arranging my nano scenes also showed up over last weekend and so now my novel is coming together! (Let me tell you, my nano novel’s scenes were all over the place!) I’m more of a “hands-on” person than a “tech-type” person so doing it with computer software is NOT the option I choose!

But it’s okay that my novel was scattered about! :) That’s the glory of going all out and writing a 50,000 word novel in a month! The writer’s creativity is released and FREE TO FLOW for a month of random writing! Then the next month comes when you get to put it all together in a logical format. LOL! Works for ME!

Among writers there are what’s known as Pansters (those who write by the seat of their pants) and Plotters (those who plot it all out and write a synopsis BEFORE they begin to write); I’ve learned that I’m a Patchworker (those who like to write it randomly and then patch it all back together again) LOL!!

So tell me, has Santa made an early appearance at your home too?!?! And for my writing buddies out there, how does the philosophy of National Novel Writing Month work for you?!


Romance through the mists of time and Love through the dimensions of reality

And a Merry Christmas to you too, Janette. Santa ain't been yet, but maybe I'd better go and check the porch.

LOL! Yes! You had better go and check your porch! I saw Santa outside someone else's house last night!
