November is off to an amazing start.
Today is SciFi Sunday at FantasyCon on Facebook. Meet and chat with authors of Sci-Fi as well as Fantasy artists and bloggers. Enter the contests, take advantage of the giveaways.
Today is also Day 1 of National Novel Writing Month 2015. I am happy to report that I’m well on my way to meeting my word count goal of 1667 for today. If I can keep it up I will have 50,000 words toward a novel by Nov. 30. I’m working on a detective story set in the mid 1990s, which doesn’t sound all that long ago but do the math. That’s 20 years. It’s practically a period piece.
And you probably noticed, Daylight Savings Time ended. Yeah, you fixed your bedside clock and the one on the microwave and the one on the coffeemaker but don’t forget the one on your car’s dashboard.
Last but not least, tonight is the season premiere of “The Librarians.” Perfect. After a long day of writing and ambling around FantasyCon, I’ll be ready to kick back and relax. It seemed apropos to fix a vintage cocktail. This one hearkens back to 1917 when it was first concocted at the hotel that gave it its name:
1 oz. bourbon
1/2 oz. Cointreau
7 dashes Angostura bitters
7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Garnish with a lemon twist
Stir ingredients briefly over ice, strain into a chilled flute, top with Champagne and garnish.
