NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month
On this page I am going to try, for my third year in a row, to keep an updated word count throughout the NaNoWriMo challenge, posting every day – if possible. The goal is 50,000 words from November 1-30, which means an average of 1667 words a day! Unfortunately, I started with a limp since I wrote nothing on my novel those first 24 hours.
Even though this is my third NaNo I still need all the encouragement you can spare me. If I’m really honest about this, I’m more than a little unsure that I will be able to get deep into NaNoWriMo 2012. With all that’s going on in my little world right now it will be interesting to see how this turns out. I even have nudges and reminders coming to me through emails: NaNoWriMo Tips for Procrastinating Writers. *cough* Me? a procrastinator? *blush*
If YOU are attempting to write a novel during NaNo, drop me a line. Let’s DO this!

I am not able to post my 50K badge here since I didn’t earn it, but I did write every word by hand so I will give myself the badge for that.
And thank YOU for following my progress.
