Happy Thanksgiving! 

I am checking out of the blogosphere for the week to enjoy the holiday and to continue to work on my NaNo project. I was really excited to cross over the 30,000 words mark today! 

Next week, Moxie Writers Susan Oloier and Rebecca Green Gasper will be here as part of the Speak Out Against... Blog Tour. Please stop by on Wednesday, November 28th to hear from Susan and Rebecca and learn more about their books Break From You and Outcast

Until then, good luck to all of my fellow NaNoers and a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends.

I hope everyone has a great week! :)
