Waxing Moon
Saturn Retrograde
Mercury Retrograde
Cloudy and cool

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the National Novel Writing Month challenge. Wonderful work! You made the commitment and stuck to it. Good for you!

Well, Mercury goes retrograde today, which means three weeks of hell for me – Mercury is the planet of communication, to anything to do with communication can get misinterpreted, plans to awry, electronics go kaplooey, travel is delayed, etc. But the shopping’s great, because people don’t realize the value of what they sell, so it’s time to bargain shop.

My mantra for Merc Ret is: Stay low, be quiet, go shopping.

I will try to voice as few opinions as possible during the Ret because of the chance of both a lack of clarity on my part and misinterpretation on the part of the reader.

Two issues of Widow’s Chamber edited and sent this morning, so far. I have to run a quick errand, and then I want to work on Angel Hunt. I need to catch an earlier train today than my usual Tuesday train. Let’s hope the trains are actually running kinda maybe sorta within the realm of decency on-time.

I really do want a holiday miracle, don’t I?

Errands, Angel Hunt and then the train.

Tapestry is still niggling at me, and the Congress Corners characters have a lot to say about the holidays, so I better start listening.

The tree lighting at Lincoln Center was beauatiful last night. The city always dresses up well for the holidays!

Hi, Devon! I've been reading your journal for several months--since the summer--and I enjoy it so much I thought I'd drop you a few lines to let you know. Your entry about spending Thanksgiving w/family resonated with me, and I sympathized with you as I read through it. I'm a writer with a few things out to market and several WIPs. One thing I admire about you is your determination to transition from the workaday world to a writer's life. That's a decision I also made years ago and every day I move forward toward the goal. The things you talk about in this regard--balancing an outside job and writing, making business decisions that will help your writing career, planning how to achieve your goals--echo my own thoughts. In fact I recommend "Ink in My Coffee" in my online journal and placed a link on my page. Also, I've become interested in your writing so I'm going to scoot over to KIC and purchase your work. Your journal is an inpiration to me. Happy writing...d:)
