What happened today: First write-in of the NaNo season!  It was fabulous – I wrote almost 3k at the write in!  We had 23 people show up – our largest write-in ever!  It was fabulous!

This will be an entire series, and the ‘Stars for the Dead’ title will not be the first book.  It will probably be the second.  For now, though, I’m going to just leave everything as is . . .
