Writing isn’t my full-time job…yet. I run a steel company and have a busy family to keep up with. Plus, we just adopted a high-energy puppy from the Nebraska Humane Society, a new sibling to our large German Shepherd and grumpy cat.
Life just doesn’t make it convenient for me, or many others, to write. I’m under deadlines and the stink eye of my writing coach to be making progress on my second novel. Thank goodness NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is here and I’ll have company on this journey.
So, this month, I’ll be shutting off my smart phone and squeezing in hours to write early in the mornings, late at night, and whenever I can sneak away from the office. I’ll be trying to crank out 75,000 words in November. Follow my NaNoWriMo journey here and on my social media feeds. I’ll be posting my progress, my road blocks, and some fun pictures of when and where I write. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook!
My first milestone is to reach 20,000 words before the election. (I need something to distract me from politics!) Then I’ll set my next milestone.
Who’s with me? Who’s writing this month? Share your NaNoWriMo story in the comments below. Let’s stick together and get this done!
