I originally titled my book: Writing Under the Influence. My entire book was written between sips of wine. When I took a sip, I'd interject the words: Sip, sip. As I wrote, I e-mailed chapters to my audience of one and dear friend, Sarie. She suggested I name my book: Sip, Sip. I like Sip, Sip better. It's cuter.
|I often wrote here. But, where am I and where's my wine? !I must have slipped away for a refill).|
|Having fun while I was writing was my main priority. I Had to embark on my journey with this bottle.|
|I love anything cute and colorful. My second writing companion was Funky Llama.|
|Bottle #3 was Lucky Duck. For five days I was feeling lucky and loose.|
|I chose Yellow Tail for my fourth bottle, another dose of cute and colorful. It didn't taste bad either!|
|Mid month the wine was flowing and I began to relax with Bottle #5.|
|During any challenging endeavor, humor helps. I had to have some of this!|
|Last but not least, I sipped across the finish line with Bottle #7, Cedarburg Spice.|
My first bottle lasted five days so I anticipated I'd drink six bottles in the thirty days of November. I drank seven. The title of next year's NaNo novel may well be: How I Became a Wino.
FYO: My reward for writing 50,119 words is more expensive wine from now on, nothing less than $7.00 a bottle.
