My NaNoWriMo reward is sitting on my library drum table now, but for a time I had it propped up on the music stand where I could admire it: Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey. It is still in its cello-wrap waiting for me to hit 50k. Hopefully that will be 15 days from now, but if not, I’ve promised myself I will not open it until I reach that goal regardless of how long it might take.

I suppose it is a testament to how much of a bugger this manuscript is being. I have Scrivener’s 50% off offer and this mouthwatering book as incentives, not to mention one or two other souvenirs I plan to pick up if I make it, but I am still struggling.

Heather was/is so right. I should have stayed with The Kevodran.  The gods know how long it is going to take me to get back into that story.
