I had a good morning at CampNaNoWriMo and I now have 60,779 words.  I’m nearing the end, which I expect will be at about 72,000 words.  I signed the first copies of my fourth novel, which arrived yesterday, and gave them away at my bridge class.  I was most gratified when one friend said, “Well, I know what I’m doing tonight!”  That really made me feel good.  My hot tub has problems so I spent some time on the phone with my tech both in the morning and again in the afternoon.  He was just here yesterday, and he agrees that it was nothing that either he or I did.  He thinks he knows what the problem is, but wants to do more checking and he’ll call me tomorrow.  Lately, it has been just one thing after another, but I am concentrating on all the positive around me and trying not to get bummed by the way the universe is testing me.
