I'm actually happy November is behind us. It was an emotional roller coaster ride from start to finish. Fortunately both starting and ending on a good note - if I want to go with my roller coaster analogy, the cart arrived to the same spot from where it had taken off - so now I can fully concentrate on December and look forward to the coming Christmas. For the first time in many years I'm really excited about the holidays. But more about that in the Sneak Peek post in a few days. Let's see what happened on my blog in November:
For such a character heavy story this had a very complicated plot underneath. It reminded me of Oceans Eleven, not because there was a heist, but for that art of balancing groups of people, secret motivations, and character development through conversations and action as this big involved plot unfolds underneath. It takes some serious talent to balance all of that and keep things moving.
