I always feel so much more energized in November when it comes to writing. I have been participating in PiBoIdMo the last few years. (See sticker on the side.) This is a challenge to come up with a new picture book idea every day for the month of November, and it usually gets my creative juices flowing in the morning.
I have also been dropping everything to write every morning from nine to ten. This seems to work for me--choosing a time and sticking to it. If this pregnancy wasn't wearing me out so much, I'd write from nine to ten every night as well, after my babies are asleep.
I've been happy with my progress, and I've surprised myself by putting middle grade aside for now and working on a science fiction young adult novel I started a couple of years ago. It's been fun. Happy November. Now comes the hectic holiday season so let's see if I can stick to it:P
