NaNoWriMo 2016

The house is a mess and I just learned the kid got 68% on two math quizzes, but at least there’s this:

My priorities are clearly so screwed up. Seriously.

#TBT Never Say Never

So I told myself I wouldn’t do NaNoWriMo this year, but the call is so powerful.  It’s everywhere I look on social media!  Everyone is posting their daily word counts and helping one another be accountable – which is so awesome!  To make matters worse, I just received a reminder from my #Timehop app that this was my #NaNoWriMo story last year.

I miss Luca and Landry! But not to worry! I’ll be working on their story again in 2017!

Turns out, this lady doth protest too much.  I now am back on the #NaNoWriMo train.  I’m not in any groups, though, which is fine with me.  But if you want to see my progress, you’ll find it here.  I’m also not starting a new story (at least, not for this NaNoWriMo account) but polishing an old one that fell short of 50K words.  I was going to rewrite it in first person present tense, but after tackling the first chapter, I’m keeping it third person past tense, as the original was.  It also won’t have a cover until I’m done because I want to do a proper cover reveal when the novel is finally finished – yes, I am learning patience.

What about you?  Are you doing #NaNoWriMo?
