NaNo Progress: Week 1

So, the month started off pretty slow on the writing front, but with good reason. I spent the first week of my hibernation moving all of my stuff into my new house. While I’m excited to finally be closed and moved in, it couldn’t have come at a more hectic time. Eight days have passed since NaNoWriMo began, and I’m at (wait for it…) 3,200 words. That means, only a daunting 46,800 more to go.

But, I’m going to catch up. I’ve had the critique group over already for a write-in, and it was nice having the support here to help me keep writing and stay on task (even if every ten minutes I wanted to unpack another box or prep the living room for painting). Thank you Jessica, Sheryl, Karen, and Mason!

Keep writing, everyone. I’m going to.

Cheers to Fears,




So, I’m all signed up and ready for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I’ve got a great idea brewing, and it’s nearing the end of the brainstorming process.  In the next few weeks I will be outlining each chapter so that I am ready to write come November 1st. As I write, I am going to post my progress here. Hopefully this will give me some accountability, and I’m hoping for some help from everyone that reads this.  Anytime I feel stuck, or I can’t imagine a scene or emotion, or whatever, I will post those questions here. That way, you can all help me get through this.

So, I will start with this:

Have you ever felt like there was something more you wanted from your life, but you can’t have? How would you describe that feeling?

Thanks for your input!

Cheers to Fears,
