HALLOWEEN is cold and wet this year. Not one trick or treater.  Revising manuscripts and thinking about NaNoWriMo for November.

Lily’s Lagniappe: LSU getting an off weekend, then heading to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama.

Working on the nonfiction picture book that works with the water. I had three versions just yesterday. I sent it to my critique group. They will destroy it and then I will refocus it and try again.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Looking forward to the weekend. LSU plays at 3:30 on CBS this weekend. It will have a chill in the air. At first it was rainy prediction but now it looks like it may be less of a chance of rain.

The Zoom meeting last night was good. We are agreeing to meet once a month. Our next meeting is November 18th. Working on BASKETBALL BALLERINA  with the Hummingbirds, but also working on a nonfiction picture book. Would like to work on a chapter book and picture book for November NaNoWriMo month. Mostly stress writing a novel during this month and maybe I can try that if I can decide what I need to work on.

Lily’s Lagniappe: The next ballgame for the LSU Tigers is in Starkville, Miss. Mississippi State always has a trick play or two for the Tigers.
