Nov 1: NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month

This is my first time participating in Nanowriming and I have really enjoyed it. I decided to use some of my mother's own story to kickstart my novel -- September Skies. It is not entirely her story, but I have incorporated the stories she's told me into my novel. It is a love story set against a backdrop of The Great Depression, three young women struggle to survive. This is their story (in the lines of Titanic or Pearl Harbor.) Hey, it could happen. This could be a big love blockbuster movie some day. I can see it. Writing a novel in one month has been challenging. It has been fun and I love NanoWrimo for what they have done to my story. It is so cool to go to their site and see it in a book setting where I can turn the pages. I wish I could keep that. But it has also been hard trying to find the uninterrupted time to work on the story -- that usually means midnight, but that's fine because I'm always writing at that hour anyway.

  2. Your NaNoWriMo sounds like a classic, and I can honestly say that I think I would love to read it.

    Good luck...rooting for you.
