National Novel Writing Month NaNoWriMo!!!

It's that time of year again! The time of year for literary abandon, for the whole month of November you try to write a 50,000 word novel.

Oh yeah, talk about a challenge. Now cram in time with the family, Thanksgiving, and holiday shopping and you begin to see the mounting obstacles. But who cares?! The fun is in the challenge! I can't believe how excited I am by this as I've never finished. Ever!

Last year I was unemployed and since I had nothing to put off to work on my novel I got all of 2,000 words written. Yes, that statement is illogical, it would makes more since if having no job I finished a novel, but I never claimed to be logical. The year before (my first year) I made it to 30,000 words. This year I have experience, a job, and the fact that I have to have a novel written before I'm thirty (4 month away) looming over my head. This is the year that I get it done!

Join in the craziness here. Adopt a plot, talk about how your character hijacked your storyline, and read the wacky ways other authors deal with life on a deadline.


I just received an email from one of my all time FAVORITE Authors, Mercedes Lackey!!! Look what showed up in my email this morning.

Yes, it was a mass email but ask me if i care? NO!!! Not even a little!!! She's been one of my literary hero's for ever! So excited!!!

I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
