NaNoWriMo Update

Hi Everyone! After a rather rocky beginning, I’m to a point that I’m doing fairly well in the NaNoWriMo competition. It has been a lot of fun and a huge challenge too! Never having attempted writing something at this magnitude, I find myself discovering questions I never had to ask before. Like why won’t my MC behave, nor do what I want her too? Or, where on earth did that plot twist come from. Or which yet to be discovered character does this mysterious name that keeps stalking me, belong to? And where is the chocolate when I need it? Questions. Lots of questions. And there’ve been plenty of answers too (except the one about chocolate), but I can’t divulge those just yet. *Wink* It has been quite an adventure. That I’m sure of. At this moment, I am just beyond where I need to be on average. And I surpassed the “third of the way through” mark 2222 words ago, so I’m well on my way to the half-way point. Yeah!

One of the drawbacks to this though, is that I’ve had to drop some other “extra-curricular” activities. With a 13-month old running around, my time for doing these things is limited. Two of the things which I’ve had to give up (for now) is doing much writing for my blog, and reading, and commenting on, other blogs. So if you have a blog that I generally frequent and comment on, please forgive me for my absence. I still love you and your writing, and quite honestly I do miss it. Rest assured that I will return in December. Thank you so much, to all of you who have offered me support and encouragement along this journey. Blessings to you!

Great job on NaNoWriMo...Im gonna try it in January. Had I not just written a 65k book in October (I had my own little personal nanowrimo...before I'd even heard of nanowrimo...LOL)....

But, I think I'll try the sequel to it in January's nanowrimo.

Press on girl. God bless you and your writing!

Eh-- I know what you mean about giving up extras. I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year, but Spouse is... and I miss being able to talk to him after the kids are in bed. *pout* He told me the other night "you are the one who suggested I do this!"... my response was "Actually I was the one who said I was considering doing this-- and you're the one who said "cool idea!" and ran with it" LOL... I don't think either one of us won that round.

Good luck and keep up the good work!!!
