Day #1 of NaNoWriMo

There’s an hour before the first day of NaNoWriMo is over and I’m busy typing away because I didn’t want to miss getting in some writing. Yes, I’m counting blogging as writing because it’s what I can do at the moment. My fingers are sticky and stinging because I had some hot glue misses.

I’ve been doing double duty for the past month and nothing changes as I begin November. I have a one day event for the holiday artists and crafters. My love of Christmas and the Hallmark channel has taken over my life. My home is littered with glitter, faux pine, and miniature houses getting sprinkled with fake snow.

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about all the work that’s gone into my novel or novels that are itching to get moving. One good thing about winter up north is that snowed in days mean that I can get all those long awaited projects done.

Long days curled under my blankets with my computer on my lap help me get published. The road to writing recovery for me has been publishing resource journals for fellow writers. The next step is getting back to publishing fiction. This will take more time and effort but this is what I’ve been building up to the past few years.

Wish me luck as I go on another journey this month! I hope all you see the final pages of your own. You can register for NaNoWriMo at

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
