Okay, so it’s officially the 1st of October. Which means there are precisely 31 days until the start of NaNoWriMo. (that’s National Novel Writing Month, for those not in the know)
I’ve been participating since November 2005. During which time I’ve gotten married, had four children, been subjected to my mum passing away and moved five times. In fact now that my youngest child is 3, it feels kind of weird to be doing NaNo without that kind of crazy child filled drama in which to fit writing around.
I’ve only lost once, in 2008, the year my mum died and I plan to continue to keep up my winning streak this year. 50,000 words in 30 days. BRING IT ON!
