Good thing it isn’t me. I’ll stick with my big stew of words…now lacking in NaNo several thousand. So many several in fact, the old “Can I do it?” and “Remind me: Why am I doing this again?” keep cropping up in my brain. But I shall Pierrsevere. Even if I have to miss Thanksgiving Turkey’s amazing desserts. I’m sure it will be worth it. That is The Faith a writer must have. May your stews be rich and your get-togethers be sweet. Gobble-gobble! - Pierr

Week 2, heading toward 20,000 words by tomorrow night. Amazing how this happens. There are now nearly 300,000 NaNo writers all over the world still going for 50K. Still with the faith we can beat out our inner critic as long as we keep forming letters which make words which make pages which make leaves…
I’m making soup, too. Fabric soup. Which I dry and iron and snip and sew into a couple of nifty products I sell in my Etsy shop.
CACTUS-Stands and HAND-Stands – for glasses and rings and bracelets, necklaces and hair things…
…even earrings on a pin.
Why am I telling you this? Because it’s nearing that wondrously huge gift-giving time of year and I’d like to do a little horn-tooting on this blog of mine. Besides NaNo-ing I love to play store.
I offer FREE gift wrap and card. I ship WORLDWIDE, so far my HAND-Stands have flown to: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Japan, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Sweden, United Kingdom. In the USA: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania,Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia and Washington state.
Be the FIRST NEW STATE or COUNTRY on my growing list of recipients. Give yourself (AND/or someone you love) a HAND…Stand! pierrmorgan.etsy.com
Thanks for looking. And good luck here in week 2 of NaNo!!

About 90 minutes to Midnight here in the Pacific Northwest and the start of National Novel Writing Month 2013. You doin’ it too? The more the merrier. In fact, at the present moment (10:31 pm), there are 210,452 participants worldwide. Isn’t that cool? Doesn’t that just thrill you? It gets me, that’s for sure. Which is one reason I’ve been cranking out 50,000 words every November since 2009.
I’ve now got over 800 pages filled with words that I didn’t know were in my brain before. Granted, I haven’t taken any of these “working drafts” to a polished state worthy of an editor or agent’s time, but I’m heading in that direction.
The Fantasy pictured above is in three parts right now. Tonight I’ll start the fourth part because I have to keep writing to find out what happens to these characters. I still don’t even have a title. I know – it’s crazy!
But it’s so much fun. Check it out – click the link above. You might be surprised at what ends up on your screen or notebook pages. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! – Pierr
