Library Holds: Slice Of Life #SOL17

There is something satisfying about walking into the local library and picking up a delightful stack of books that I have put on hold. The Google Library Extension is my friend. I know that the more books I check out the more money the library receives so I feel good about it.

Yesterday I picked up:

Smoke and Mirrors from Neil Gaiman, to further my knowledge and read exemplars of short stories – I am a huge Gaiman fan and was surprised I had not downloaded this book on my Kindle already

Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich which is my book club pick for December

Out on A Wire by Jessica Abel which is a wonderful resource for writing and storytelling recommended by author Rachael Herron – Jessica also has a wonderful podcast that has workshop episodes

I am looking forward to reading during my lunchtime today!


Welcome to November!

Today has been a good day!

  1. An early morning run
  2. Coffee routine with my hubby
  3. Good morning meeting
  4. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) started today! Today’s word count: 1,807 – The goal is to write 50,000 by the end of the month
    1. This did not go as well as I thought it would. I had plans in place and then sat down in front of the BLANK screen and I panicked a bit. It is ok. I have many more days to go.
  5. Book of the Month selections came out today!My Pick!
  6. Great evening planned!

If I can squeeze in some reading, it will be even better!
