On This Rainy 1st Of November

How about a bunch of rainy day – perhaps rainy weekend – reading excerpts? These are straightforward, with no additional commentary or asides.

Another November 1. I see lots of writers are tweeting about how they are doing that NaNoNaNoNaNaooooowri… stuff to write that novel. I may have to mute at least half of the #writingcommunity!

Stop tweeting about it… and WRITE! LOL!

Have a good weekend, wherever you are. 🙂
