|Irritating as it is, snow is rather pretty.|
Anyway, I'd like to send out a big thank you to everyone has served in our armed forces. I have a number of family members who are veterans, as well as a bunch of friends who are, as well. Personal connections aside, I'm grateful to all who have sacrificed in order to serve our nation. It may not be perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the positive parts being American includes.
As for NaNoWriMo, I'm actually a tiny bit ahead of the official goal. Hopefully, I can get a few days ahead tonight. The story finally took a more concrete shape in my head, and now it's just a matter of getting it written. By the way, I've been posting regular writing updates to my fundraising page. If anyone's interested in sponsoring my efforts, I'd greatly appreciate the support. The page tells more about what the folks behind NaNoWriMo do to promote literacy around the world, too.
Lastly, it's Tuesday! Since I've finished two books since the last time I've updated, I'm starting a new one after hitting/surpassing my writing quota for the day. It's one of the freebies from the convention I went to in July. I'd heard favorable reviews of the author's other book, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. It'll hopefully be a nice change from sciency stuff and fairy tales.
Thanks, as always, to MizB from Should be Reading for hosting Teaser Tuesdays.

"On televisions all over the world, larger than life, the camerlengo raced upward out of the Necropolis with the antimatter before him. "There will be no more death tonight!"
But the camerlengo was wrong."
Angels & Demons, by Dan Brown (Yeah, so that's three, but this guy seems to have a thing for short sentences, so a third was needed.)
Stay warm, all!
