NaNoWriMO... the experiment

Two years ago, I first heard about this thing called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  My favorite (really... I have lots of a favorites) liberry lady told me that she had joined NaNoWriMo and was spending every waking, non-working, moment of November writing a 50,000 word novel.  50,000 words?!?  Seriously?  That's crazy.

Yep... it is crazy.  This fall with one child at home and no definitive ministry to speak of, I decided to try this thing called NaNoWriMo.  

Here I am on Day 4... 7265 words and a story that looks nothing like the story I mapped out last week.  Good, bad or ugly, it's taken on a life of its own.  I feel as if I am just along for the ride.  

I have no idea where this ride will take me.  I don't even know if I will be able to accomplish 50,000 words in 30 days.  

All I do know?  This is fun!  Who knew?  Oh, yeah, Beth, the liberry lady, knew....
