What's been happening? Well you know, global pandemic and all. I am sure you are well-aware of current events. My household is currently in quarantine for a positive Covid test, and I am relatively certain I also had it last week. I was tested, or rather, I was given to the swab at the CVS drive-thru to do it myself. This test came back negative, but I also learned shortly after that I most likely did not insert the swab up far enough, since I did not get all the way into my sinus cavities. (Gross, I know!) I did, however, experience the same symptoms as the confirmed Covid case in our house, so I can only conclude logically that I too had Covid.
Fortunately, we've been blessed to only experience mild symptoms. Many are not so lucky. Regardless, I have been off work for several weeks.
It is December 1st. I did start to participate in National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. The last 4 years I have finished by writing 50,000 words over the month of Novemer. Unfortunately, this was not the case this year. I am not entirely sure what happened, but I just could not find the stamina this year. I am disappointed, as I was hoping to finish drafting the second half of Storm Wielders in November.
This is not to say that progress is not being made, however, and I am looking forward towards moving into the editing and beta-read phase in 2021! Stay tuned!
