Our local library is the local sponsor for NaNoWriMo in Topeka. I love it! They’re really active in helping writers. Even setting up “Come Write In” sessions for November, and pre-writing events in October!

NaNo is a chance to get that story that’s in your head, the one you constantly dream about, into words. It’s that chance where you get to meet and hang out with people who are just as insane as you are.
It’s more than just writing. You’re challenging yourself. You’re pushing yourself. Just when you think “Ahh, got my words,” a new day has sprung and you have to write 1667 more. It’s a never-ending cycle that while you don’t get a huge prize or rounds of applause, you finish with this feeling of self-satisfaction that you can’t deny.
In short, NaNo is the best gift, FOR FREE, that you can give to yourself. Family, friends, and social life be damned.
I wrote that today, about NaNo. Explaining why it’s SO worth the time, the effort, the frustration, the heart ache.
You get paid in triplicates with the positives.
I love it!
I love being a part of it.
You should try it out. Check it out. Do it!
OH MY GOD! I didn’t think I was going to make it! Then I hit 48k, and I was like … NO GIVING UP! Then came 49K and I’m like, fuck it, NOT GOING TO BED!
I DID IT!! I WON NANOWRIMO!! WIN #3
I’m not looking at any motor home repairs, but I wouldn’t mind getting my windshield replaced. That huge ding (that’s filled, so not getting bigger) really pisses me off. Freaking truck flying down a dirt road, flinging rocks every which way. I had only had the truck a few MONTHS when it happened too
Otherwise, there seriously isn’t much going on. I hit yesterday’s word count today, but I helped with hosting Night of Writing Dangerously on AIM, so yeah, I get a pass, I think! Goal is 35007 today! We’ll see if I reach it. I should.
