Five for Friday

1. I know it's late, but technically it's still Friday in my neck of the woods. Who else hears Al Roker's voice in their head when you hear that phrase? No? I'm crazy all by myself?

2. Word count:14588 Editing:100% donezo! Okay, I really didn't get as much writing in as I wanted, but I finished editing! Hooray! My focus all of next week will be working on my NaNo novel. Like I said before, I don't care if I get to 50,000 words, I just want to dig deeper into the story and find the heart of it. That sounds kind of gruesome, but you know what I mean.

3.Kristan Hoffman wrote this amazing post about what really matters in writing. I read it and it goes along well with my post earlier this week about doubt and comparing our work to other's.

4. Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Yikes! I know not all of you that read my blog are in the States, but I have a huge place in my stomach (and heart) for Thanksgiving. I love the food, the whole idea of remembering to be grateful for the things you have, as small as they may seem, and being together with family. Although this year it'll be just our little family celebrating together, it's still wonderful. My husband has been traveling SO MUCH for the last month that the idea of traveling again down for the Holiday kills him. And he feels like he hasn't spent any real time with us here at home, and he just wants to focus on spending time with our little ones. Especially since he'll be traveling again next week from Mon-Wed (he'll be back in time for Thursday's huge meal) and the week after also.

5. I just wanted to wish you all a happy weekend. I'll keep working hard on my writing, and check in on your blogs. I might be absent later next week with Turkey day and everything, but I'll be here in spirit!


  1. Keep writing Prerna and I'm happy that you like thanksgiving. Good luck with your writing... and remember, keep writing!

  2. That word count is really coming along! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Congrats on getting your editing done! I love Thanksgiving, too. I hope you have a great one!

  4. Congratulations on completing your editing. IMO that's the hardest part, so yay for you for being done! Good luck with digging into your NANO story and I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving! I'm so looking forward to the holiday as well.
