halfway through NaNoWriMo, halfway through my engagement!

The halfway point. Cue the song, “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi.

Oh we’re halfway there
Oh, living on a prayer!
Take my hand,
We’ll make it I swear!

It’s halfway through the marathon month of writing a novel. Happy to say I hit 30,000 of the target 50,000 today! “Wedding 3000” has been full of surprises for me, and each time I write it threatens to veer off the sci fi satire genre into a dramatic romance against a sci fi backdrop. It’s like my book was trying to earn its Ph.D. and decided to quit and become a comedian. Alas!

In other news, planning a wedding is also speeding along and full of surprises! We’re four months in with four to go. It’s time for selecting his wedding ring and creating registries, styling invites and getting the dress fitted.

(Click here for an image of me in the wedding dress.)


So far, I continue to be overwhelmed by the kindness and good wishes of those who support our commitment to each other and God! Thanks everyone; it means more than you know.

Just like writing, wedding planning takes time out of each day to ponder, plan and communicate. Rather than set aside entire days to plan (which often end up in being overwhelmed with the flood of decisions), it’s helpful to take it in small pieces. What’s the old adage? The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time?

At any rate, we’re halfway there!! More on that later!!
