Chilly October and Nice November
Amazing to realize that it is December already. Parts of October and November felt very fast indeed. Despite my unimpressive accomplishments list below, a lot happened over the past two months. The past two cold months, I should clarify...a bit of October felt like November and a fair bit of November felt like December! A lot of wet, wind, and cold made for a less-than-stellar fall, but thanks to the Towners letting me use the minivan, I was able to get out a few times to enjoy it--a big blessing. I took a course on the Wilderness by Messenger International which was fantastic and challenging, and also started receiving prayer counseling on some Wednesday nights, as part of my very long quest to get through whatever's blocking me from getting out of the wilderness of the past 12+ years.

Editing progress with the fourth Geren novel proceeded quite well, so that I enter December a trifle past my schedule...and on track to hopefully start working with my wonderful editor in February (that thanks to a huge prayer request answered near the end of November). My planned art projects had to decrease from three to two, but at least I finally finished my big illustration I started in February and had it printed on metal to hang in my bedroom, then resumed work on the illustration for both my latest story and next year's calendar. And I got to celebrate both 25.75 years, t'DoL's birthday, and Thanksgiving in the space of a week!

As for December, rushing full-tilt to finish my 2019 full-page calendar illustration along with pass 5 in the fourth Geren novel. Besides that, time to put up the decorations and get ready for a nice long trip to visit family over the holidays. Can't forget shopping, parties, Christmas music! I'm also itching to do more illustrations with the Wolf Lord in them, so if time permits, maybe I can start the next one...
