Is it November already?

Well November has come which means its time for NaNoWriMo, or using the full name. National Novel Writing Month. To be honest I probably won't officially join in. The current "book" that is getting the most attention is the third book in a planned trilogy, so it doesn't meet the standards for an official entry which is supposed to be started at the start of the month.
As for what I'm doing in my writing.
Anne and I are still working on Family Letters, but the pace has slowed down a lot. I've also noticed that there has not been a tone of e-mails begging for the rest of the tale. Don't worry, we will complete it.
Next, I have my trilogy. This will appear at Amazon once I finish it. I finally finished book two back in October, so I have just another 150K words to put to paper. Not a lot, but likely 2-3 months of writing if I can maintain the current pace.
I do have another swarm cycle story that has grown to over 250K words. If/when I post it here it will be my longest Swarm story. Like most of my tales it's a complex character driven story exploring a number of aspects of relationships. I can say I adore the characters and enjoy writing the tale. I just wish I had more time in the day.
I do hope everyone is looking forward to the end of the year. May these final two months bring you happiness.
