Had another good day today, managed to write 2316 words even though I got a late start. Now I’m up to 13056 in 7 days! I can’t believe that I am doing so well this week. Honestly, I wondered if I could do this. But, I’m so glad I gave it a try. I needed the push. Some blogs I have read have , well lets just say they are NOT in favor of NaNo. They think it’s a waste of time, or say if you were going to write a novel you would just do it. Or any number of other things.
I started this new adventure because it gave me that extra little nudge in the direction of putting my words down in a somewhat book fashion. Instead of hiding behind short stories or stories of my life, I took the challenge to push myself to actually write……a book. Is it something that someone else will want to read? I don’t know, I hope so. But there are never any guarantees in life about anything.
I’m enjoying the camaraderie that comes with others attempting the same challenge and cheering each other on. Even those that aren’t participating in NaNo are cheering me on and I want you to know I appreciate it deeply. I do love a challenge and I do love adventure. Sure it might only be an adventure sitting in front of a computer and typing, but hey, I’ll take it and embrace it for all it’s worth.
I’m determined to make that 50,000 word mark. And I am nothing if not stubborn. I fight for what I want. So again dear readers, thank you for your support and for still reading my posts all though they seem pretty boring to some. I am working on some new posts that have nothing to do with NaNo, and soon hope to have them ready to post. Hang in there folks.
