A big shout out to all my NaNo friends!! by Ellie Heller

I wanted to give a big shout out to all my friends who are participating in National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo or simply NaNo) this year. Particularly my fellow ERA members who have taken up the gauntlet:
Ali Katz
Amber Green
Ash Penn
Carol Hone
Cate Chase
Debbie Vaughn
DH Starr
Gillian Archer
Jayde Knight
Judith Leger
Lauren Fraser (who blogged on The Lure of NaNo earlier this month)
Lillian Grant
Shaw Wheaton

I wish them all a great deal of success; it is not an easy thing to do! I wish I could have joined you this year but life just too darned hectic right now. In the past when I have done it one of the biggest benefits was getting in the habit of writing everyday. Because, let me tell you, if I stopped for more than a day or two I fell way, way behind.

So, big kudos to you all, for your determination and for hanging in there.

I expect to be reading lots of new and interesting things over the next several months as revisions are made.

I can’t wait!! 🙂

  1. Thanks for the good thoughts Ellie. Every evening when I sit down at the keyboard I think, “Were you out of your mind to sign up for this thing?” Then a few hours later when I have reached my goal for the day and do a quick re-read my thoughts change to, “Hey, this isn’t crap!” Although NaNo condones crap I try NOT to write it. I should reach the half way point today, Lord willing.

    Making the word count is like exercising. No one really wants to do it. No one has time for it even though we all know it will be good for us. When we finally give in and just do it, we feel so much better. 🙂

  7. So far so good. Looks like the critique boards will be all lit up with all of us typing our little fingers off. LOL
