Monday Musings

It seems appropriate to have one more NaNoWriMo update on my blog, now that we are nearing the end of the month of November.

If you look at my account on the NaNoWriMo boards, it says I have been a member of the site for seven years.  SEVEN WHOLE YEARS!  In those seven years I have actually participated in the challenge maybe 5 times.  I have had so many unique (lol! that is being VERY generous) ideas over the years for stories but they never truly panned out.  The farthest I ever made it in a noveling attempt was around 13k words. And while that's a personal feat, it's not even close to the finish line.  Not by a long shot.

But this year is different.  In October I found some cool writers on twitter (try here, here, and here!) and their tweets, blogs posts, and just general musings on writing and finishing books left me feeling inspired.  I also started searching the NaNoWriMo tag pretty frequently and thought it was cool how many people were participating and just writing, writing, writing.

My Current Word Count: 45,008
My Goal Word Count: 50,000.

Can I do it?
With hard work and determination, I believe I can!

Take care,
