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.


  1. Good luck with the NaNo writing. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  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.
