I'm going to be quiet for a while so I can do NaNoWriMo

I'm going to go for it with NaNoWriMo, for the National Novel Writing Month.  The basic is to write 50,000 words of a novel in one month.  With Thanksgiving in the mix, it'll be hard, but I've decided to try it.

You are supposed to write a first draft, beginning to end, without taking time for edits and such.  Word count is the goal.

If you're interested check the link and give it a try.  There are X winners - the number determined by how many people make the 50,000-word goal.  The only prize is a certificate that said you did it.

Check here once in a while.  I'll be posting word count now and then.


November 7, 16, 300 words.   Sometimes the writing is hard and sometimes it's easy.  Today the words just flew from my fingers.


  1. It certainly is a test of endurance so good luck and keep us posted.

  2. Yes, and it's after 3 PM now and I'm just sitting down to work. This may be a good learning experience for me.


I love comments - please?
