November is NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. There will be lots of writers out there attempting to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month. It is intense. If you’re not one of them, do what you can to support them in this endeavor.

Tip: Have everything you need for NaNo ready to go. Your notes, whatever you write with, food, etc. Planning and preparation are 90 percent of the challenge. By having things ready at the start, you are one step closer to success.

Thought for the day: The onlyplace where success comes before work is in the dictionary – Vidal Sassoon

Teaser: Last night was Trick or Treat night. In your child’s bag, you find a note – Help me. I’ve been kidnapped. What do you do?
