6 days into NaNoWriMo

Signs that it's National Novel Writing Month (50,000 words in November)

1. The fridge is full of all manner of pre-prepared & store bought frozen meals

2. Hair is frighteningly unwashed & unceremoniously styled.

3. Writing marathons at the library (thank you for the last minute get together Debbie & Meagan)

4. I make up for neglecting my babies by hitting up a dollar movie

I'm a little behind from earlier this week, so I'm playing catch up. Wish me luck!
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo?

Ha ha, um, I am? I guess? I hadn't even heard of NaNoWriMo until last Tuesday night when it had already started, and I don't really know what compelled me to join--boredom, maybe. I've almost reached 11K, though, so I guess I'm well and truly into it! I took Friday off to research story structure a little and hammer out an outline, but now I'm back and almost caught up again. I saw your post and had to comment because I'm kind of obsessed with this right now--it's hard to stop writing sometimes! My husband thinks I've gone insane. lol, well good luck on your story!

I didn't this year. :( 7 months pregnant and I am just not feeling up to it. I had planned on it after last year, but such is life. Good Luck!!

I LOVE that you do this lady, keepin' that passion of yours going and all. And about the hair, if we learned anything from our lovely Meredith, it was that a little baby powder in the hair can stretch out the days you can go in between washes. Well, in theory anyway.

(do you remember that?) :)
