NaNoWriMo 2019: Completing Watching the Detectives

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series My Writing

Watching the Detectives is the novel I read from in episodes 14 and 28 (embedded below for your listening convenience). I am using this year’s NaNoWriMo to edit and complete it. On day 2, after adding current edits, it stands at 26,520 words. My first goal will be the standard National Novel Writing Month Goal of 50,000 words, and then we shall see. I will be, of course, reading more of it on the podcast as I go along, and I am looking forward to doing so.

You can keep up with my progress here, or at nanowrimo.org. If you are participating as well, feel free to add me as a buddy.

Brought the wheels because I am having excessive pain in my feet and therefore don’t trust my walking, so I am sitting in style. Happy Thanksgiving from me and There Might Be Cupcakes Podcast 🧁. I am grateful for you.

via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/B5XlZH3J7FN/ You must read this spooky novel that my friend #LizHand has written. I was honored to help out out as an early reader, and it’s a fabulous and highly original amalgam of historical fiction and horror. (that background is a Sunbonnet Sue quilt made by my wonderful maternal great-grandmother, who was as fiesty as the main character of Curious Toys, and who was a child at around the same time.) Repost from @carlahaunted using @RepostRegramApp – I haven’t had a chance to share this yet: my early reader’s copy of @scary_neary’s brand-new novel Curious Toys. I mean that literally: I was blessed to be an early reader of the manuscript and help Liz out with the final polishes and tweaks, what an honor to do my little part.

Episode 9: Instagram: October 30, 2019 at 01:12PM


via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/B4QBM7RJxdn/ Episode: Family Trees
This came up in my Facebook memories, dated about six months before I started the podcast. It ended up as a story in the episode Family Trees, which I link below, but it is worth copying here for posterity—and because it’s a fine tale out of American history, and a good one about a politician for once. We can all stand that, right?

Original post:

This still makes me laugh. My family made minor Congressional history for being firm in our beliefs (read: stubborn) and strong in our convictions (read: opinionated). I give you The Pettigrew Indictment. “In 1917, while being interviewed by a journalist from the Argus Leader, Pettigrew offered his opinion that the First World War was a capitalist scheme intended to further enrich the wealthy, and he urged young men to evade the draft.” They tried to charge him with espionage, he countered with his friend Clarence Darrow (yes, that Clarence Darrow, he of the Scopes Trial) and was acquitted.
Best part: he then framed the original indictment for display in his home office…right next to the Declaration of Independence.
It’s still there in the Pettigrew Home Museum.

Repost from @carlahaunted using @RepostRegramApp – Inktober Day 25: Tasty. Of course, given my podcast’s title, I drew a cupcake. 🧁 🖤
