A subtitle for this post would be, "The Story of my NONaNo 2008 experience."
But I really like the Out the Window imagery. And this is the cutest window, with its darling little pots of herbs.
So. Here's the thing.
I’m working on Betsy’s story. I had thought I’d hammer it out and then move on to a new novel to do for NaNoWriMo. Fifty thousand words, you know. But as it happens, I’ve had some surprises from Betsy and the people of Legend, Tennessee. No way am I going to tell them I’m taking a break.
So, since we’re near the middle of the month and I haven’t even begun a new story for National Novel Writing Month, or logged into the NaNoWriMo site except to register in October… Um, since all that, NaNo is out the window this year. Sorry. Not intentional, but there it is. To be honest, I’m glad not to have that to worry about right now. I’m not in the mood to write quickly and go back and polish.
I wish all the best to those who are diligently NaNo’ing, building up their word counts. It’s an awesome feeling! Maybe I’ll do it next year. Right now I have to follow my bliss, you know. I’m just that much of a rebel.
I am pleased to report that Betsy is happy with me, and that’s pretty much all that matters right now. By the time I type THE END, there’s going to be a lot of happiness going on in Legend. Funny how that happens.
