A NaNoing we will go

Finally, after a very slow start to NaNo I have gotten to the point where it is chugging along. While I should be at the halfway point by now - 25,000 words - I left off at 11,969 words last night before stumbling into bed. And I do mean stumbling; I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow.

I knew the early years of Obed's life were going to be a challenge, but it really bugged me I had such a hard time churning out words. Now that I am at the most interesting point - the beginning of Jesus' ministry - I think the word count will move along smoothly. The only reason I stopped yesterday was because my eyes were closing as I typed.

I already popped in a few more words this morning. I am off to my daughter's school later to help the Kindegarten children make yarn dolls. They will pretend they are cornhusk dolls, which they are taking on the maiden voyage of the Mayflower. I got the idea from a newsletter I received from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society in De Smet, SD. But more about my Laura Ingalls Wilder fixation later.

Here's hoping I enter week three of NaNo with some stupendous word counts.

Thanks Lynn. I haven't done so hot, but at least I have a good portion of a novel started now, instead of no novel at all.
