National Novel Writing Month has arrived!

For me that means trying to finish a first draft of my novel, Half-Truths, that I started two years ago. I'm trying to crank out close to 2,000 words a day and not stopping to research or edit. That is hard for someone like me who wants to get the facts right the first time around!

It also means that the Young Writers Program at NaNoWriMo just put up an article I wrote entitled,  Mine Your Life. Who knew when I participated two years ago that I would be one of their "Writer's Block" authors this year? Not me!

I'll have to check out the article this weekend - I haven't done much of anything - no writing or anything else. Just want to get through work and out of this funk. See you in the postings and good luck with your NaNo finishing first draft month - lol - E :)

I'm finding the daily word count very challenging, but it's been interesting to try.
Good luck with your project!

I can hardly wait to see what you have in store for the Write2Ignite! Teen Track next Feb.

Thanks everyone, for your support. YEs, Constance--it is challenging and I can't say that I've met my 2000/word day goal but it does get you in the chair and writing, doesn't it?
Jean, glad you liked the article!
