A New Month With Many Special Days


I love turning the calendar pages to a new month. Maybe because it's a good feeling to have finished the preceding one and there's also the unknown of what this next month will bring. It's an adventure about to begin.

What's on tap for your November? Today is National Author Day so if you're an author, preen your feathers and puff out your chest a bit. You've earned it. November 1st is also the first day of the NaNoWriMo project. In case you've been away on a desert island, NaNoWriMo is an ever-growing project to motivate writers. Read more about it here.

Besides the above, November brings us that much loved holiday--Thanksgiving. The Canadians have already celebrated their Thanksgiivng the second weekend of October. I'd like to have it about that time so there would be more time between the stuffing holiday and Christmas. I'm already thinking about the feast to come.

In our family, we have several November birthdays so I must be sure to send cards and have a birthday cake for my daughter the day before Thanksgiving. 

In many parts of our country, the weather takes a sharp downward turn this month. Those warm Inidan Summer days of October are nowhere to be found. Instead, we have the trees shedding the remainder of their leaves in those sharp winds and temps falling lower than we'd like. Depends on what part of the USA you live in, however, as some places are still enjoying warm temps and a relief from the high summer heat. 

We also celebrate Veterans Day during this eleventh month of the year. A perfect day for writers to pen their feelings in prose or verse. 

You have a whole new month ahead of you. Fill it with worthwhile writing projects, family gatherings and honoring our vets. Make a few new memories for your Family Memories Book.
