Forgive the incoherence, it's 1 in the morning Scotland time and I've been crunched up in a seat on Delta for the past 8 hours. But we are back in the USA, for which I am most grateful. As much as I love traveling, there is always something nice about going through customs and getting that cheery "Welcome Home!"

It's been a long day, and relatively uneventful. It's seems rather odd that 17 hours ago I was staring at a Scottish loch, and now I'm in Detroit, awaiting the last leg of our journey. There is a warm bed and a good night's sleep in my future, that's for sure.

Tomorrow I go back to work in earnest on YARD OF GRAVES. I've decided to do NanoWriMo this year, so as of November 1, I am a writing machine. I've done NaNo before - the first time was for my 2nd Taylor book, 14, and I've participated several times since. So for the next few weeks, it's back to boring old word counts and (hopefully) writing epiphanies. I'm ready to get back in the swing of things.

Anyone else doing NaNo this year??? Want to keep me honest?

Sweet dreams!
