Even though the clouds moved in, we still held onto the upper 60s with rain in the afternoon. The November weather definitely made its mark on the start of NaNoWriMo.
Like on a real roller coaster, I pushed the story forward with a jerk to the ‘Singapore is Ours’ declaration by the protagonists and left it with a new chapter opened. I logged in 2020 words. Again I like the number, but I wish I could have pulled off more.
I am going to flip back to the beat sheet plotting method rather than the roller coaster, which is more like a labyrinth. This morning it led me to these dead-end streets and side streets.
In my other role as a journalist, I am working on a story about a hometown salon celebrating its 10th anniversary. The salon survived the Covid horror and competition from other salons.
You can buy my books locally at Shabby Chicnanigans next to Curtis Cleaners and Bettie’s Pages on Main Street just in time for holiday shopping.

Visit the new delightful bookstore in downtown Lowell during the Girls Night Out this evening from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and at any time you can. It’s located on Main Street next to Station Salon.
Bettie’s Pages opened during the pandemic and survived the lockdown. Owner Nicole Lintemuth is one of the “Unsung Heroes” that fits this year’s GNO theme.
I asked Lintemuth if business was back to normal.
“I don’t know what normal is,” Lintemuth said. “We didn’t have Girls Night Out last year. We were closed during the pandemic.”
You will find all genres here plus charming gifts. My books are here in both, the fiction and non -fiction sections. My new “Greenwich Meridian Memoir” and the Shifting Sands Short Stories series are among the store’s inventory.
“I am so happy that we finally have a bookstore in our town. It’s just as bad as not having a coffee shop,” I said.
