fall arrangement 1229576_97847309It’s officially autumn, the season of pumpkin spice lattes, brisk breezes, warm sweaters, and Jack-o-lanterns. Fall always makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea, as the days grow shorter, the evenings longer, and the leaves more colorful with each passing day.

And with the arrival of autumn comes the end of another round of A Round of Words in 80 Days, the writing challenge that knows you have a life. Round 3 turned out to be quite productive for me. Here’s the tally:

  • Finished a second draft of my novella “Good Old-Fashioned Magic.”
  • Finished first drafts of two novelettes, “Called by Magic” and “When Magic Knocks.”
  • Read five books on the craft of writing. My goal was four, so I exceeded my target.

How did Round 3 go for you? Did you meet your goals? And what’s your favorite part of autumn?
