Hey! I've moved. You'll be directed to my new blog in 3...2...1...

So are you going to do it? National Novel Writing Month. Are you? I'm doing it. I hope to write 50,000 words this month. I've never done that. Ever! I'm going to push myself to just create and let that internal editor go on vacation. I don't have a lot of grand ideas that this is going to be easy, writing never is. But I am determined to do the very best I can do while working  a full time day job and taking care of my family and trying to stay healthy while I'm doing it. If you're a praying person I'd love it if you'd keep in your prayers. I've always said that slow and steady wins the race. I'm really a turtle. A NaNo Ninja Turtle that is!
I think I'll get one of those red bands to wrap around my head for inspiration at the keyboard.

So don't be surprised if you don't see long blogs on here this month. I'll show up every week and let you know how it's going. If I get the urge to blog about something really cool you'll see that too. But for now, I feel the need, the need for speed.


  1. I wish you well as you embark on NaNoWriMo, Jill.

  2. Good luck. I've never partaken in Nano but I love the hype that it creates amongst the writing world. People are just so eager to write, it's inspiring. I love it. But instead of partaking I usually put my efforts into my WIP. I call it NaFinYoNoMo (National Finish Your Own Novel Month) lol...

  3. Thanks Keli! I appreciate it.
    And DRC, I love your NaFinYoNoMo. LOL. Thanks for the well wishes.

  4. Go, Jill! I'm doing pretty well, but I had to give up the 'healthy' part. :-) Can't wait to finish this novel and reclaim my health after the last six months of degeneration!

  5. Hi Rosslyn,
    I'm not the ninja turtle I hoped to be. The regular work week has taken it's toll but I'm not quitting. I had just got book 2 turned in Tuesday and therefore didn't take a break between projects. Watch that healthy part, you don't want to make yourself sick. Keep writing!
