Words, Words, Words.

This week I have been busy writing as I am taking part in Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) where the challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It started on the 1st November and carries on all month. As I have never written anything longer than a blog post before it really has been a challenge to write my target amount of words every day.

It has been a real roller coaster of emotions but at this moment I am loving it! I'm learning so much about myself and about the process of writing. Also I am really having to walk my talk about 'trusting myself' and 'trusting the process' - one step at a time it seems to be working.

Luckily I still have things to report for I Saw Sunday and I didn't even need to leave my desk.

We have been having a squirrel visiting the garden lately and he has now discovered how to leap from the bird table to the windowsill, where he sits so close to me.

I can see him in such detail it is amazing. It sends the cats crazy they can't believe this creature is sitting calmly just inches from them. :-).

From the windowsill he can access the hanging bird feeder that he is ingenious in his attempts to try and get it open. I really should set up the video camera it is happening so close it would be a really good bit of film.

I managed to get a photo of him earlier in the week before he discovered his ability to leap onto the windowsill. Unfortunately It was taken through the window and isn't very clear.

Then tonight (Saturday) I was sitting here at my desk with a nice cup of coffee and there filling the sky outside my window was a huge professional firework display! The next village has an annual huge event to celebrate bonfire night (Guy Fawkes night) and it just happens that my computer chair gives me a wonderful view and front row seat!
Loads of Whooshes and Aaahs as the sky filled with magic!

I'm really looking forward to reading the novel! and I would have loved to have seen the fireworks, I saw one last night which did prompt an involuntary aah! and I love the little squirrel :o)

I too have a photo of wildlife for this past week. And am not doing the novel challenge, but am taking part in the poem a day challenge at Poetic Asides and finding many of the same things you have found. Good luck with the writing, and I love the squirrel,
