October 31st, 2014. NaNoWriMo was beginning the next day, and this year I would do it!
For those who don’t live in the on-line writing world, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, an annual internet-based creative writing project where writers set themselves a goal, and go for it! Some I know have had great success. My friend, Violet, is wrapping up the first draft of the third book in her Charlotte series, written in as many years, the first two already published!
I could do that, I thought. I have two WIPs on the go (Works In Progress). This will be my push to get one of them done. I even had an accountability partner, dear friend Melanie, who stayed in contact, giving little nudges, trying to move me forward.
My goal, however, became, a moving target as ‘stuff’ kept getting in the way.
