NaNoWriMo Rocks!



I love my new novel! I've had so many amazing surprises already, like a fun character who popped up a few times, then insisted she become an important part of the story. That happened last year, too. I had an annoying boy named Stinky in a couple early scenes. He refused to stay in the background, and turned into one of my favorite characters. Just yesterday, I received an e-mail from someone saying she loved Stinky's transformation into someone desirable and likeable.

I hit 14,330 words before going to bed last night, and hope I'll be able to keep up this pace. This story has been haunting me for years, and it feels amazing to see it come alive so quickly.

I hope everyone else is having an amazing NaNo, too! And I can't wait to hear about all of your stories.

Holy cow!! I haven't even begun writing. I almost started last night, but played a game of spider solitaire instead. And then there were chores and Meaghan's dance observation. I'm so bad. No discipline at all.

But keep up the good work, Mindy. Congrats!

You have discipline, Brenda. And you can still make your goal for the month--there's lots of time left. Are you working on something new or using the NaNo push to finish the novel you've been running through our group?

Thanks for the congrats. I just hit the halfway mark,and am absolutely loving my novel!
