@cheri Cheri! I suspect I’m quite a bit like Brent Simmons in my ability to do NaNoWriMo, so I think I’ll have to focus on working on my regular activities instead. ??? I don’t think I even could half-ass it ? at the moment. And it does say “National”, and I’m obviously not an American National, so am I even allowed to participate? ?? But best of luck to you, @hutaffe and the rest of the MB-people that might join in! ? A cruise mystery sounds intriguing. I like those confinement mysteries! ??
