I did it! NaNo





I did it! 50,000 words in one month. I worked on one YA slice of life and 1/2 of a YA fantasy novel. Though both are VERY rough draft, I do think they are both promising enough to work on. But first, I need to polish up and send out my current WIP. This past week has been really hard, becuase I've been sick and had lots of headaches, which made it hard to concentrate and many nights I went to bed after the kids went to sleep, instead of writing. But I plugged along and got'er done!

Stay tuned. . . because I have a special treat to end NaNo WriMo. I have a guest interview with the author of Skin Hunger, Kathleen Duey. Along with the interview I'm going to have a book drawing for skin Hunger. Come back sometime tomorrow. I'll post it then.

For now, my fingers need a break.

Thanks Angela!

Thanks Rena! And congrats on reaching your goal!

Thanks Jacqui! You can cut and past eh properties for the chicken and put it on your blog. I got it from the same site where I got my word counter on the side bar. They have a bunch of NaNo icons you can choose from.

Thanks Kelly! :0)
