I won NaNoWriMo 2016!!

So, this was not my first NaNoRodeo, as many of you loyal readers already know. This was my 7th consecutive NaNo win. I am so proud! I don't always know what I will be writing, but this year I did. I almost never write an outline prior to starting, but this year I did. I … Continue reading I won NaNoWriMo 2016!!

NaNoWriMo 2016

Well, I began Day 1 of NaNo 2016 quite on the ball. I had my outline done--first time ever, and I've been doing this since 2010. I had a Google doc ready to go. I told the fam that after I finished work, I would start writing until suppertime (thank you, thank you, husband who … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2016

NaNoWriMo 2015 is underway

I have been participating in NaNoWriMo  since 2010 and have always finished. I signed up again this year, fully confident that I would finish it, since I always have.  After all, I had a foolproof formula.

Part 2: They have to write what they think their day would … Continue reading Perfect day

Does this NaNoWriMo make my butt look fat?

As a NaNoWriMo participant, I keep odd ours. Maybe you can relate? I am writing when and where I find time, or beg, borrow or steal time.  This requires a larger expenditure of energy, ergo, I need to eat more often. Quick sugar foods are often at hand and fill the bill. So far this month I … Continue reading Does this NaNoWriMo make my butt look fat?

NaNoWriMo 2014

So it's November, and you (may) know what that means: time to write a novel. This year my novel is having an identity crisis. I've renamed it three times since I began November 1. Yes, that's three new titles in three days. This is the first time I've had this issue with my project. I … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2014
