I’m hanging in there! I’m writing a collection of personal narrative essays for NaNoWriMo, maybe someday they’ll be published, maybe not. I feel that I’ve learned a lot so far in the process, not only about writing a book but also the life lessons that I have written about. It’s been a refection for me, one that I truly needed. I’m considering submitted one of the essays to National Novel Writing Month publication in hopes of getting feedback, but mostly to share what I’ve been up to. If today’s essay is 2000 I will be just over the 30,000 word mark. I owe my motivation to the Ninja Writers. My ability focus on writing for longer periods of time has significantly improved with our daily word sprints.
