IWSG Day: Wednesday, November 2, 2022 ~ NaNoWriMo: Are you in or are you out?

It's the first Wednesday of the month,
the day that members of the
Insecure Writer's Support Group
share their writing struggles
and writing successes
and offer their encouragement
and support to fellow writers.

To visit the IWSG website, click here.

Our wonderful co-hosts who are volunteering today,
along with IWSG Founder Alex J. Cavanaugh are Diedre KnightDouglas Thomas Greening, Nick Wilford,  and, Diane Burton!

I hope you have a chance to visit today's hosts and thank them for co-hosting.
I'm sure they would appreciate a visit and an encouraging comment.


Every month the IWSG announces a question that members can answer
with advice, insight, a personal experience, or a story in their IWSG posts.

Or, the question can inspire members
if they aren't sure what to write about on IWSG Day.

Remember the question is optional.
This month's featured question is: 
November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

Happy November, Everyone!
I hope that you have all had a good October and are enjoying the change of seasons.

I'm posting a little late today.
No, I wasn't flying today, but I arrived home at 10:30 last night 
after returning from Cabo San Lucas in Mexico on a delayed flight out of Phoenix.

And early this morning I had to be at the hospital for my third infusion.
I'm so grateful and encouraged because the infusion treatments appear to be working,
and my double vision is slowly continuing to improve.

Yes, I have participated in NaNoWriMO by pretending my memoir was a novel.
It has been a positive experience each time.
I'm not participating this year because I have too many medical appointments 
and two trips scheduled during the next five weeks.

This past year has really slammed my writing productivity,
although I'm still plodding along ever so slowly.  Hmm!  
Just thinking about not doing NaNO makes me want to do it.

I'm also hosting my Sunettes Book Club on November 17th,
and I'm hobbling around on a broken foot.
Can 2022 please end already?  LOL!  😂  😂  😂

We're reading James Michener's "The Bridge at Andau"
and I have to prepare some Hungarian food.  
If anyone has a classic Hungarian food suggestion, or recipe, or recipe source
they're willing to share, I would truly appreciate it.   

 The Bridge at Andau
by James Michener

This classic nonfiction book about the Hungarian Revolution in 1956
and the Soviet Union crushing it within days is a stunner,
and it certainly puts Russia's invasion of Ukraine today in perspective. 

I'm sharing some NaNoWriMo funnies today.  
I hope you are finding laughter and fun in your days.

I'll be visiting around as quickly as I can.
I hope you have a great day visiting your IWSG friends.

Happy writing in November!

Till next time ~

My next post will be on Friday, November 11, 2022.  🤞
