NaNoWriMo.... Still Writing!

It's a silly little thing, but I get a kick from entering my words each day and watching these little bars appear on my NaNoWriMo site. I am at 9,013 words as of day 4. My friend Cheryl and I have been sending daily check-ins. I think she's having as much fun as I am.

Believe it or not, this is only my 2nd time doing NaNo. I think the last time I tried it was 2001, and I've pretty much spent the last 8 or so years tweaking that novel, or some version of that novel, or some spin-off from that novel about related characters whom I thought might be more interesting to write about. In 2001, they did not have the cool bar graph function. I'm not even sure that they had a website.

Back to work this week, as well. I'm back! All refreshed from a month of vacationing... recovered from a month of vacationing!? Feels good to be in the routine again. Kids seem to be feeling it, too. Munchkin Boy has even taken on his own sort of NaNo project. His goal is 10 words a day on his story about Bob the Water Flea. So far, he's averaging 20! I can't wait to read it.

I'm lagging FAR behind but I'll get there.
(Maybe you can even post the Bob the Water Flea story? (With the author's permission, of course?) I'd love to read it!)
