Nano count: 20,086 words
Happy Veterans Day to all service people living and beyond. You cannot know just how much your sacrifices and your service means to the rest of us. Thank you.
A nice day yesterday. I’m still waiting for an expected project to roll in, so I had time to work on Nano. Also, Anne and I had our second free monthly mastermind chat with some of the Five Buck Forum members. We rolled around some ideas, chatted about business stuff, and enjoyed the camaraderie more than anything.
That call left me feeling really good, so I put that energy into my manuscript, and I was able to find that thread that ties the characters together. It’s solid, and it makes sense for what I’m trying to present. Amen.
I also took some time to find fun stuff to share with you.
