Another year of National Novel Writing Month has come to an end. I finished with 50,055 words a few days early and still hadn’t come up with any kind of ending for my story, so I stopped at that point. I will soon find more time for blogging and my own genealogy research. I still have to finish blogging the pictures from Ukraine and Paris, then onto all the records.
This was my sixth year as Municipal Liaison. MLs are in charge of planning activities for the locals, like write-ins and parties. Kaitlyn has been my co-ML for several years, and this year we had an ML in training, Ike. Next year, we’ll get him signed up officially — this year, he volunteered 30 minutes before the kick-off.
My writers were such a pleasure this year. Last year, we had some grief from a couple of them even before November, but this year they were all wonderful. No fights, no threats of secession, they hosted lots of write-ins, just a couple posts that needed moderating in our forum.
Last night, we had a Last Chance Write-In, in part because Kaitlyn headed off for a family vacation this morning and won’t make it to our TGIO party tonight. Ike had great timing to volunteer this year, and he was a lot of fun to hang out with.
Other events from this month include my computer dying and having to buy a new one. I ended up with a great deal on Wednesday, even better than the Black Friday price. The deals were so good that day, I also bought on a new desk and chair. The change of scenery has been good for me.
After tonight’s party, it’s back to more normal. Until next year.
