How is this the last week of September? Has anyone found a way to lengthen this month?

Clearly, I missed posting last week, and Monday, and Tuesday. Well, this has been a strange week. I suppose I could use that as an excuse if I needed one, but I actually have a few good reasons for my absence. In a list:

  • I finished my fourth novel. It is completely unedited of course, but it is done.
  • There was a lunar eclipse on sunday night (no, that is not an excuse, it is a fact). Did anyone else see it? It was absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, none of my pictures turned out.
  • NaNoWriMo is a little bit more than a month away. And I still have no idea what I am going to work on. (For anyone who does not know what NaNoWriMo is, I will be talking about it later. Once October is here.)
  • may have slightly lost track of time last week. Oops.

As this is the last week of September (eek), I have a quote to present for the month. (On a side note, I know I mentioned that I am pulling together a standing page of quotes a while ago. I do intend on putting one up, but I am still trying to figure out how to organize it. For now, I will start a page with a quote for the month and possibly a few others as well.) This month, I have chosen a quote by Neil Gaiman, “When writing a novel, that’s pretty much entirely what life turns into: ‘House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.”

It might be ironic if compared to my life at the moment; the post-finished-novel unedited-mess-that-I-will-let-sit-in-a-drawer. But it is a good quote. And Halloween is next month.

Well, I will post the fifth chapter of Beautiful Cracks soon.
