On his blog this morning, Paul Lamb mentioned that it’s October.
October is my favorite month. (Well, when I lived in the Chicago area it was; in Texas, November is the closest we get to October up north.) It’s a great month to be outside. It’s a great month to throw open the windows and listen to leaves. And…it’s a great month to write!
Since September, I’ve been back to focusing on a novel. I’ve spent so much time this past year editing and formatting things for e-books that this novel ended up sitting a bit. I even wrote a novella before getting back to this novel.
Now, though, momentum is there; even working 7 days a week at the day job can’t stop at least some progress more days than not on this book.
And now that it’s October, I know that progress will only increase.
Even though it won’t be chilly until November down here in Texas, just looking at October 1 on the calendar is like a starting gun going off.
I hope everybody has a great month!
(And if you’re interested in what I’m working on, the first three chapters can be found here.)

You’re off to a fantastic start! I can’t wait to read the rest of it.
This makes me want to run off and join the circus.
Christopher Gronlund says
Thanks for reading, Mitch–glad you liked it! The circus…I came close to joining once.
I’m hoping work eases up enough soon to grab a beer…maybe even drag my butt out to the next DFWWP Meetup!
