I haven't forgotten you!

Okay, I've been completely neglecting my blog, and I'm sorry!

Apparently, my life wasn't nearly busy enough, so I'm taking on a new challenge: NaNoWriMo!  That's right, I'm writing an entire 50,000 word novel this month.  And to be honest, I'm kind of loving it!  Not just the pressure to write, write, write (though that's kinda fun), but also the story itself! I'm enjoying the intricacies of creating an entire story comprised of people who exist only inside my own head.  I'm actually going to miss this when the month is over, and I probably won't know what do with myself.  Maybe I can find another "excuse" to write daily even after November is gone. ;-)

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to post the synopsis of my novel onto my blog, or if I'll share any writing excerpts.  There IS a way to get to read the entire finished product, even if it's completely terrible dreck - I will be sharing it in its entirety with anyone who donates to the OLL fundraiser - but other than that, I can't decide how much (if any) should be made public.

In the meantime, I'll appreciate anyone who wants to cheer me on!  I am supposed to write 1667 words a day, on average.  Yesterday I got none, but today I wrote 4000, so I think it's gonna even out. I have to say that my hubby has been terrifically supportive, even more than I had expected him to be!  I am so grateful for my amazing man who may not always understand why I feel the need to do some crazy things, but at least understands that I DO need to, and pushes me to pursue it.  Also thankful for my BFFFE Dawn, the only person with an all-access pass to the entire story AS it is being written.  Her support and encouragement is priceless!

Okay, that's it for tonight! I'll post again soon!
