A Very Special Day #theloveofmylife #Mondayblogs #NaNoWriMo

Hello, dear friends.  Today is a very special day.

First:  It’s the last day of National Novel Writing Month and I’m happy to say that I met my goal of 50,000 words on Thanksgiving Day, giving me the weekend to relax and live in the moment.  Yay!

Second and most important: It is the birthday of the man who enabled me to complete NaNoWriMo in record time.

Every day I’m thankful he is in my life.  For his birthday, I dedicate the following song as sung by the late great Etta James.

“How far would I travel to be where you are

How far is the journey from here to a star … “

lyrics by Irving Berlin, ~1932

  1. Yippee, your comments are open again. And big congrats on meeting the NaMo goal. You are totally rocking the writing (and I’m a wee bit jealous, too). P.S. Love Etta James.

  2. Oh, Marie, I am SO happy for you! I knew you would do it, but to read that you did it feels wonderful. I’m dancing around on my chair!!!!

  3. I love Etta James, her song, “At Last,” and this one are so heartfelt. Good luck, Marie. Wishing you success, you work hard on the writing craft. 🙂

    • Robin, did I mention that my daughter sang “At Last” at my dad’s funeral? It was the last song she had sung for him, so it was an easy choice. Plus the flip side of that record (by Glenn Miller) was I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo and that’s where my dad found my mom and they lived their lives.
