Nanowrimo is driving me crazy! I'm starting to think that this is my name, I'm sure that it will pass as soon as November 30 comes and goes. But I digress. NANOWRIMO - the torture that I willingly set myself up for is a month - a SHORT month, during which I "promise" that I will write an entire 50,000 word novel in 30 days. 30 days of grueling, pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth. What in the world was I thinking? But really, so far it goes - I can't say GREAT - but it goes in spurts and starts. I started out strong but this is where the voices of doubt show up and say "what is this crap!" Fortunate for me, what I write during these 30 days of h*** doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be on paper! That's what December is for, the Great Edit Fest. To keep me going I have developed a little pep squad of my own, my sisters, my nieces and my good friend H. These people will keep me on the straight and narrow, cracking that whip, so to speak. Today's the 11th already? 19 days to go!
