Now for my favorite ‘N‘ word: NaNoWriMo. It started with the book No Plot, No Problem by Chris Baty. I heard about it and read a library copy in 2001, I think. Later I bought my own copy. I even bought the kit that I have added my own prompts to since. By the way, click on the links above and go to the NaNo site or the site of my review on Goodreads accordingly. So for 21 years I have been enjoying the challenge of creating my own books to dive into. Each Novel brought me more friends to care for and listen to. Not just the characters that appeared but writers clubs that have real people I remain friends with so many years later.

Not only did I make a novel nearly every year in that 21 years, I got the T-shirts. Most years I bought either the participant or winner’s shirt. Now I have a drawer full of them. I rarely wear any other shirt. I wear them for inspiration to write, for a sense of pride that I did it before and can do it again. And lately there are CampNaNo shirts in the mix as the April, May, June helps my chops stay in writing form.

Since it is nearly midnight I thought I should catch up with my latest edited word count: 3,721. I finished 25K by the 15th so I can do another 25K before the thirtieth.
