Participating in NaNoWriMo!!



I am so excited to be an official participant of National Novel Writing Month 2014, for the first time ever! This world wide event takes place during the month of November, and my past hesitation has come from the fact that it is usually a very busy month for me. While that concern still remains, I have high hopes for earning my 50k badge by the end of the month. I am not naive to the fact that that is a lot of words to string together in a months time, but considering that I already have over that on my current WIP, I am really hoping that I will be finishing my book by the end of next month. That thought raises goosebumps on my skin and butterflies in my stomach! Yes PLEASE!!! :)



 I've been very stuck in my latest work, and falling behind on my daily word counts every time I try, so I am really hoping that a physical group will help me keep my butt in the chair, my fingers on the keyboard, and my eye on the finish line. There is a group of NaNoWriMo people gathering at my local library... not sure I'm brave enough to actually show up for that or not. I don't have a private writing laptop either, but we'll see. It may be just what I need. Now I just have to find the time...

That word count badge will be going up on my sidebar during the month of Nov, so you all can be rooting me on and harassing me whenever I miss my daily count. ;)


The best part? My birthday is Nov. 27th, which, this year, happens to also be Thanksgiving! Here's hoping I'll have a further reason to celebrate and be grateful! ;)
