A Winner with Miles to go…

With full brag, I wish to say that I have run a TYPE of marathon and have won.

The NaNoWriMo Experience (National Novel Writing Month) challenges you to type  1,667 words a day, every day, until you have written a 50,000 word novel.

The pdf one receives may be cheesy, but I typed & printed, and  will hang it in our den with pride.  It was not easy; I feel as if I have really accomplished something.

The two main characters, the Carn sisters, have been floating around in my head for a couple of decades…with nothing to do except be an intriguing idea.  Finally, something was done with them and I’m proud of the results.

My plan is to tuck it in a drawer for one week, then take it out and begin the next step….the editing.

A shout out to my Book Buddy, Lara, who was with me daily and also won herself.  We did the happy dance/twirl, no matter that we were miles away from each other.

Someday as you are going through amazon or even (gasp) Target or Barnes & Nobel, you might run across a book that started in November 2015.
