Some topics covered this week:

  • I received my order from The Literary Gift Company, which I talk about here. So many great ideas for that reader/writer on your Christmas list!
  • My friends and I went to Reid’s Stationers, my favorite Calgary pen and paper store, last weekend. I bought a number of things, two of which are mentioned above in bold. I will write a blog post about those items and other things I purchased.
  • Lots of changes at work – layoffs and restructuring. Fun times.
  • Still no updates for NaNoWriMo, much to my shame. This is just not my year.

Next week I will be on a little holiday so may not post regularly. But I will try.

Happy writing!
