So, in honor of the holiday here's what I want to know. How's it going with your writing? What's your favorite family holiday dish? And third, does food or a family gathering feature in your manuscript?
For me, I've had a slow but steady week of writing. The manuscript I've been wrangling with is coming to life and I'm back up to 22k after scrapping 38k, then 18k, then figuring out the parts of each I loved and stitching them together. I've reached the end of most of the stitching and am forward drafting again. I've set a goal to be first draft complete by the end of December. With Thanksgiving break (only 2 1/2 days + weekend) and Winter Break (2 weeks) approaching, I think I can pull this off.
Second, I love the oyster dressing my family in Alabama makes. Oh man. I won't get to have it this year. *sad face* Oh, and pecan pie. Man, I love pecan pie. Maybe I'll make some. (Random fact - Pecan Pie has the highest fat content of just about any pie out there - of course, this is why it's my favorite.)
And for the third question, Yes! My current WIP is all about gourmet popsicles and enchilada casseroles - I hunger after certain scenes. Claire loves sitting down to dinner with Asa's family because it's bright and lively and alive. No big family gathering though.
Okay, enough talking. I know why you're all here. The prizes. The mystery. The BFD.
So, using random.org sequence generator, and skipping last week's winner, Rachel, in the count. This week's winner is #5
Kim, you'll need to go back to last week and let me know your color preference and size, either in the comments or via e-mail. I'll also need a mailing address.

This, my friends, is what's going on the t-shirt. I took a silk screen workshop at my art ed conference and came up with this! I liked it enough to share. I'll be printing in white ink on colors dark enough to show it, and black ink on white. I won't print until I have all our winners and see if anyone else would like to purchase one. So I'm looking at printing in early December. FYI.
Happy Holiday week, fellow Americans, and, Canadians, we'll gorge for you like you did for us last month!
