Wishes coming true…

I love my family.

I love to read.

I love to write.

So, why can’t I manage to get all these under one hat? I know there are a lot of people (especially marries woman in the area where I live) who do their best to kill time. I wish they could give it to me.

Imagine what it would be like if I could use those discarded time snippets of other people to… read just one more chapter or write just one more blog post or another scene on my novel.


Truth be told, I though something like that would never happen. But then, I discovered NaNoWriMo. And all of a sudden, my very supportive husband helped me to make room for a miracle that takes an incredible amount of work but gives back to me a) a partly finished novel and b) a boost of creative energy that lasts for months.

Have you ever had the feeling that you can accomplish anything? That’s what I get out of NaNo. This is my 8th year, and I’m excited like a little child. Tell me about you. Do you have something lined up that excites you? Share it in the comments.

  1. Hi Kat,

    Love the idea of NANO and this is my first November attempt and I’m excited. Tried two of the earlier monthly camps, came close in one and totally failed the other. I’m crossing my finger and going for it next month!


  2. I’d love to do NaNo, but it seems like every time I set up a goal, something happens to keep me from getting to it. If I stay quiet and just do what I can, that’s when the miracles happen! 😀

  3. Nothing makes me feel more like I can do anything than just doing something! Especially true in writing- I seem to just while away so much time. Hey, why am I commenting when I could be getting right to it!
