One of the carrots I dangled in front of myself during NaNoWriMo–besides the warm-fuzzy of self-discipline and focus–was that when I was done I could dive into Susan Wiggs‘ Lakeshore Christmas on my Kindle. Her books are always my go-to reading when I either need complete escape or total reward. I figured that after the November I had I’d need both. So I actually bought the book weeks ago and watched it taunt and tease me all month.
It seems that even Amazon was in on my master plan, pushing me to make my goal.
I’d be a little creeped out if I weren’t so highly amused.
(Yes, my ego is officially out of bounds.)
