So, it’s the last week of November. I’ve been participating in NaNo 2014 for 3 weeks. In between, I’ve been working the day job, and writing as much as I can squeeze in. I managed to raise money for “The Night of Writing Dangerously” and wrote about 2K dressed up to the nines in film noir best. It was way too much fun to be dressed up, in the writing zone, and having a great time talking with other authors. Over 66,000 dollars was raised to help NaNo’s non-profit website and Young Writers program that helps support kids and classrooms to write around the world. NightDangerous

Let’s say many cat pictures were shared, candy consumed, and writing accomplished. I may not be close to ringing the 50K bell, but at least I’m getting writing done. I’ve got my butt in the chair, and Never Cross A Warlock is nearing its end. I’m wrapping up the series with this final episode, and participating in NaNo has really got myself into gear. Plus, it’s been a lot of fun.

Will I make it? I’m really not sure. When I’m done with Never Cross A Warlock, I’ll be working on the Time Travel Romance Novel. It moves a bit slower since it involves more research. But it has been sitting for a year. I need to attend to getting it done as well. We’ll see how far I get. If you want to check in and support, here is the NaNo website. If you’re participating, message me as a writing buddy. I wouldn’t mind a shoulder to cry on when I get stuck. And for me, the prize is in sight. I’m nearing the end of Never Cross A Warlock. It’s been so exciting just to be part of NaNo this month. That alone has been worth it. Anything to get that butt in a chair for an hour and write. Let’s say, this month has been one huge write-a-thon. Even if I don’t reach the 50k, I’m already a winner. I’ve been writing.
