Home Stretch and NaNoWriMo Ends Today

How about that?!? This is painful stuff though because I am making my life story a novel or fictionalizing my memoir. When it's all done it will be all worth it though.

Last Year's 11/15 From NaNo

I am 8,396 words from today's goal. I will keep writing.

Last year at this time I felt really torn in every direction, this year is different. Less directions and sometimes getting torn. Even though there are still some obstacles that keep me from putting the words to my novel, I will get it done.

I am determined.

My Soul

I forget exactly how I came across Luna & Sol. It must have been in Facebook. I read voraciously trying to get my writing done. Soul work, old soul concepts are integral to my novel. My first title was "Soul Triumphs" and then the other title I thought of was "Our Stars Crossed." I'm still in the process of writing but wanted to have these references on my blog so I can easily access them.

Scurrying to Get Some Writing In While My 10-Year-Old Bathes

This is the picture I saw when I logged on this computer this morning.
Yesterday was Double-up day in NaNoWriMo. I made it to the first 2 write-ins and then family time inhibited me from getting any more writing done.
But a writer's mind never stops.
When I checked into Werdsmith on my iPhone I saw a this quote supposedly from Oscar Wilde, "You can't use up creativity..." but upon googling it I found this blog--You Can't Use Up Creativity...Maya Angelou
That's all I have today for this blog. Check out my other blogs,

NaNoWriMo Double-Up Day Virtual Write-in #1

I was 20 minutes late but I will double my words today. Here are some quotes that I want to incorporate in my novel:

Word Spring in Virtual Write-in is difficult conversation between characters, but I'm going to do quotes instead--

“Dive for dreams trust your heart if the seas catch fire (and live by love though the stars walk backwards). -e.e. Cummings

“Creation means finding the new world in the first fierce step, with no thought of return” -David Whyte, “Statue of Buddha”

Do not pursue the past. Do not lose yourself in the future. The past no longer is. The future is yet to come. Look deeply at life as it is in the very here and now, dwelling in stability and freedom. -Buddha

Where there is life, there is always hope.

After a loss the temptation is to stay focused on the future, on achieving a wholesome state of mind and positive circumstances, but that can't happen until I surrender to the unknown and the unexpected.

NaNoWriMo With The Help of The Write Practice

The program looks good and I believe in the steps they suggest to finish a book. However, I do not have the money to enroll in the program so I will have to use my discipline to write 50,000 words this month to have the rough draft of my novel. I already wrote over 3K words today. Yay, me! It is worth mentioning what they suggest to have in the program and here they are--
