NaNoWriMo 2009


NaNoWriMoI must be crazy.

I’m a full-time wife, mother, and English teacher and half-time grad school student, and I really don’t have time to write. On the other hand, I do feel like I have a story that needs to come out. Well, a couple actually, and I haven’t decided yet which one I will write.

In other news, I discovered that NaNoWriMo purges your account if you haven’t logged in for over a year, and my old account is now gone, though my previous username was available.

  1. Perhaps all the stories can be collapsed into one, depending on how dramatically different they are? You could have a vampire novel set in the ER with a time-traveling element back to the dinosaur era…. hm, that idea may need work.

    I came across your journal while looking through the interwebs for NaNoWriMo entrants (I was a winner back in '04 before employment life could distract me– but oh, the rush!). If you think you might want to share your work, we're running a contest over at that will let you have your work read and judged by our readers. The top novel in each genre category (and there will be five: romance, historical fiction, mystery/thriller, speculative fiction, and mainstream / contemporary) will be printed and made available to thousands of subscribers in BookSwim's catalog!

    Here are the details:

    Maybe this is something you (or your readers) would be interested in?

    Thanks muchly for your time– and good luck with those words! (Are you keeping an eye on your supply of caffeine pills?)

    1. Chip, that looks like a great opportunity. Thanks for sharing. I passed it along on Twitter. I am wondering if that kind of exposure might help secure a book deal for the lucky winner, too!
