Okay, it's December first! Time to go in search of some holiday spirit. This afternoon I'm going to visit some festively decorated homes as part of a local fundraiser, then head to my sister's house for her tree decorating party. Sounds like a promising start!
The image on the right is a thing of beauty. :)

Having started the month of November flat on my back and in pain with a slipped disc, there were times when I thought I might not get to say "I did it!" this year. However, with the help of the voice recognition software, it worked out. At 50k words, I'm maybe halfway through this novel, and I quite like it so far. I'm setting a tentative date of January 15th to try and finish the first draft. With Christmas in the offing that would usually be unrealistic, but the silver lining of my slipped disc experience is this: my shopping is 90% finished. Knowing I likely would not be very mobile even by December, I interspersed my novel-writing with online shopping and have arrived at this enviable place.

It's too bad I can't be in this place without major health interventions, but I'll take what I can get.
