For those of you who are new to following me on my blog here, welcome!! Let me take a moment to briefly describe what Aurorae Rising is about and then I’ll jump into my actual progress so far.
Aurorae Rising is an adventure novel about an errand boy who is charged with the strangest delivery of his life – escorting a sealed document on a cross-country dirigible race to a neighboring land.”

Back to work today and not much accomplished in the morning by way of writing. I am at the point where i am beginning to face what Seth Godin calls “Resistance”. It’s not writer’s block, exactly, it’s more like a thousand things that seem more attractive than pushing through the scene you don’t want to write but need to. Like completely re-organizing my Classical Music selection by Groupings on iTunes. And then starting on the soundtracks…
Did I mention trying to find recipe ideas for Thanksgiving? I haven’t even begun cleaning yet. 😦 Wednesday is my normal “off” day this week so my hope is that I can recover and press on. I’m so grateful that God’s helped me with not having any physical issues that would prevent me from sitting at a keyboard from long periods of time. I can’t imagine handwriting all 50,000 words, can you?
NaNo participants, how is your writing going?
