Two of my favorite things about the fall are football and National Novel Writing Month. One, I can enjoy from the sidelines as a passive participant. My son is playing in his second season of flag football this year, and has gone from scoring no touchdowns last season, to scoring at least one in three games in a row. I’m super proud of him.
The second thing – National Novel Writing Month – requires me to be a little more actively involved. This is my tenth year of participating in this event, and I hope to continue my winning streak. I don’t feel very prepared for it this year. I need to work on getting my head back in the writing game. Really, I need to get into the heads of my characters.
