NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 4

Advice: Consider writing a chapter-by-chapter outline. Having nailed down your concept, expand it into a chapter by chapter outline. Take time to plot your story from beginning to end BEFORE you start writing. This allows you to know the purpose of each scene and streamlines the writing process.

Prompt: One morning, your grandmother takes you aside and tells you there is a huge family secret that it's time you know. But even though the thing she tells you is outrageous, there's a part of you that isn't surprised. What's the secret?

Monday for the unmotivated

Well hello there.

I totally spaced on who is supposed to have Monday this week and spaced on getting it done myself so please forgive the lateness. I took a long weekend for myself and when I came back to work it was freaking insane and you wouldn't think with the amount of catch up I've been doing that I was only out of work for 2 days. How am I supposed to take 2 weeks off in February? *headdesk*

Again, I'm going to take the lazy way out and ask you to browse through last week's post to check and see if there is anything that piques your interest.

Big Buddy folks should be at 58% at the end of the day? How are you all doing?

The new challenge through the end of November is NaNo! Go take a look at the posts that are up already!

Your Flash challenge for today is "I'm moving out!"

I still have so much crap on my desk it's insane. Although today I did get to talk to my boss about it so I do feel better. My plan for the week is to get through it and settle my brain. What are you all up to?
