It’s NaNoWriMo Time

It’s November and time for that wonderful writing challenge: 50,000 words in 30 days. I’ve been involved seven times but only finished five times. My heart was in the right place and I really truly believed in what I was writing, but I just couldn’t complete them. Life got in the way, or I justContinue reading “It’s NaNoWriMo Time”

Nutty as it mayContinue reading “Not Your Typical Woman”

NaNoWriMo Challenge

This is my first endeavor into the wonderful and exciting world of NaNoWriMo.  I’m four days into it and have completed my word count each day so far.  I’m up to 6,919 words.  But I am questioning my novel idea.  I am beginning to hate my two main characters.  Their personalities have gotten away fromContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Challenge”
