Hey guys!! This post is probably going to be brief, as I have to leave the house soon for some errands/appointments but I wanted to drop in for a quick update, seeing as I haven’t been on here in…months?! Yikes 😅!
I recently got back from a trip to Los Angeles and I had an absolute BLAST! I stayed at the Langham Huntington, which was STUNNING. Walking through the carpeted hallways had me feeling as though I had traveled back in time. The hotel was built over one hundred years ago, and was enchanting and elegant. The lobby itself had me swooning:
And, guys, as a flower lover this place was a DREAM. There were flowers everywhere!
Even the grounds were stunning and memorable, and one of the highlights was the Japanese gardens (there was also a squirrel 🐿 fight high up in the trees, but I wasn’t quite fast enough with my camera to catch the hilarious moment).
Now that I’m back I am participating in NaNoWriMo, though I’ve set my own goal for this year, seeing as the novel I am aiming to finish by the end of the month is about…85% done. Instead of the typical goal of 50,000 words I am simply aiming to write any missing scenes, fix the remaining plot holes, and polish the manuscript until it is gleaming and ready to show to my agent (now that we’ve finished the novel I was temporarily calling SABLE, I am now able to return to a story that is very close to my heart, and I can only hope my agent will love it as much as I do). As for the new title for SABLE, I am choosing not to share it at this time, but…hopefully soon!
Good luck to anyone else who is doing NaNo this year!! You can do it—and remember, you can set your own goal! It doesn’t need to be 50,000 words—do what works for YOU and your schedule!
Bye for now!
