No, that is not some type-o. It's National Novel Writing Month! That's right! For the next thirty days, I'm going to write a 50,000 word novel. So, I'm writing this to let you know if my facebook status updates, blogposts, emails and housekeeping are lacking, it's because I'm writing. I'll still try to blog about whatever pops into my head. For instance, I've got this great article my hubby forwarded to me that I'm dying to blog about. So stay tuned. Does anybody else do anything crazy like this?

    Alysa--You should try it again sometime. It's about twice as much writing as I normally do these days. Since June or so, my goal has been just 1k words a day. I've been able to keep that most days. But doubling that makes me stay in it that much more. I'm writing a YA romance suspense fantasy. Think Shogun meets Europe. Yes, there are ninjas! Good ninjas!
