geese over Umass library tower

If you get a chance, click over to one of my other blogs to see some photos of the snow in Shutesbury.

I tried to get a shot of the geese flying over the library tower at Umass this morning. Don't know if they will show up or not. I think you can see them better in the second picture.

NaNoWriMo Goal is met!!!

I realized it was only a week ago that I was at 31,000 words. Last night I passed 50,000 words. The goal for NaNoWriMo is the 50,000 mark so I DID IT!!! I have written more in the last 26 days than I've ever done before. Written more on one story line than I ever have before, and I know I'm not done yet. The novel isn't complete, it still doesn't have a title, and I still don't have an answer to "What is your story about?" but I met the goal of the challenge and it feels great!!

At least for today. I still have to finish the story. I still have a lot of editing to do. I have no idea if it's any good or not. How would I know?  Even I haven't read it all the way through yet!

Anyway, I am writing. I have written about 20,000 words in the last 7 days and that does feel like a lot. It's actually killing me a little to take breaks to live my life, to work, to be a parent, to be a wife. I would rather be writing. This stuff is addictive you know.

Anyway, I am not the only one reaching this goal. There are thousands of people out there doing this every November. You can learn more about it at .

Happy writing everyone!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been working on my NaNoWriMo project as promised. Starting to panic a little though. Up over 31,000 words but still have a long way to go. Time is getting harder to find this week with Thanksgiving and all.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
