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....
