I adore this time of year, and I have before Pinterest made it popular. I’ve already consumed more than my share of pumpkin spice lattes, baked pumpkin bread, and there is a pumpkin candle sitting on my end table. It’s not burning because the scent ended up being atrocious, but it’s there all the same.
October is a busy month for our family. It seems like my planner just keeps filling up. When it comes to writing, here is what my month looks like:
1. Finish gathering information for Pippa from the last of my beta readers.
2. Make changes as needed.
3. Print the manuscript and do a final read-through.
4. Set the whole thing aside and let out a huge sigh of relief.
5. Work on the outline and character sketches for the second novel in the series.
I will pull the manuscript back out mid-November for the very last read-through, make changes as needed, and then it will go off for editing! Very exciting!
What does October hold for you? If you are a writer, what are you working on? What’s on your to-read list?

October and into fall always holds special dreams for me! Starting to work again on my novel…exciting and scary at the same time!
I know exactly what you mean! So much of who we are goes into our writing, and it can be terrifying and wonderful all at once!
there is truth in what you say… I never could figure it out but yes writing is terrifying and wonderful.
