As a follow up to my blog of Oct. 12 when I was on the fence whether to take the NaNoWriMo challenge this year or not, I came up with my decision at the last minute, last night at midnight.
With three newsletters to write, I didn’t think I could manage to finish them before Oct. 31. With my imposed deadline, I worked diligently and focused to make it happen.
I actually work better on a tight schedule. All the time.
I finished the Carolina Rosarian, a 16-page quarterly newsletter for the Carolina District of the American Rose Society.
I followed that with The Charleston Rose, an 8-page monthly newsletter of the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society which includes a revision to the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society Constitution and ByLaws.
Yesterday, I finished Whitney Lake Gazette, a 12-page quarterly newsletter full of useful information for residents of Whitney Lake in Johns Island. I sent it out at midnight last night to all Whitney Lake residents.
I am the editor of all three newsletters, President of the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society and Board Member of Whitney Lake Homeowners Association.
There were other things I had to do and I managed to squeeze them with my tight schedule.
I’m back on my computer, typing away towards my 5th NaNoWriMo Challenge which journey I began in 2013.
Today, I did 2090 words so I’m on my way.
Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.

I was going to say, “Best of Luck”, but i really do not believe you’ll need it. Have fun with it, Rosilinda.
[I can’t wait to use your story! I hope i put it in the blog at the proper time, in sequence with events.]
Thanks GP. The story is moving along but I’m not sure I have enough ideas to do 50K words. We’ll see.
You’ll do it right. I’m not worried. Just make sure it’s before the Battle for Manila. There is a book with that title. I read it years ago. I just don’t know where it is in my house. It’s in a box somewhere.
