NaNoWriMo and the Lockdown

Today is the first day of National Novel Writing Month. Tens of thousands of writers around the world are taking the challenge to put 50,000 words (or more) on paper in thirty days. I did it in 2010 and succeeded, and I’m back at it again today.

So if I’m not as responsive as I usually am online, please understand. I’ll be back real soon. In the meantime, I’m locking myself in the castle so I can work, making exceptions only for meals my husband will prepare (whew!) and the gym.

Oh, and Downton Abbey, of course.
