During the month of November, I will be participating in National Novel Writing Month! That's right, I decided I want to be a writer. My goal for the month is to write 1000 words a day. Depending on baby's temper and Byron's patience I might be able to complete 50,000 words by the end of it. We shall see. So I ask your forgiveness in advance. Any pictures that I post in November to my blog will probably be taken hastily with my iphone (besides the few posts I have saved and ready to go). I will try to post updates on my progress and general mindset about the whole thing. If I get really crazy maybe I will post some unedited excerpts. I have spent the last few days getting ready. Here is a list of 11 things I am doing in preparation for NaNo.

1        cleaned the house
2        organized a meal plan for the month (thank you Real Simple)
3        trimmed my nails and left them unpolished :(
4        found a place to stop and write on my way home from work
5        named my characters
6        researched 
7        plotted/ outlined my idea
8        joined a local YA writers group    
9        read all advice given by Janice Hardy via twitter
10      telling everyone I can that I'm going to write a novel 
11      believing in myself
