is Monday and I'm grateful to be off on Mondays. I'll have four 3-day
weekends in November to write fast and furious to make up for the days I
know I might fall short. I've no doubt I can make it to 50,00 words,

why I mostly write in the morning after my walk. Walk - Yes I'm
finally back to walking in the mornings. Not the 5 miles that was my

things for me and my writing. I carry a small pad and pen in my pocket,
because Walt was right - ideas seem to fall from the trees.
