NaNoWriMo – Day 1

Getting up before dawn this morning was not nearly as agonizing as I anticipated. No husbands were hit nor bad words said when my alarm rang, and the sun was so shocked at my initiative that it decided to hide out for the day and do some serious navel-gazing.

  1. so proud of you!!!

  2. Yay! I am so excited for you! The first step is usually the hardest, but it sounds like it went perfectly. NO cussing? Wow.

    I emailed everyone I know. I *think* I found a lead, a friend’s nephew! I will be in touch!

  3. Thanks, ladies. I’m looking forward to what you find out, Meg!

  4. “No husbands were hit nor bad words said when my alarm rang”……oh my word, that would be me.
    If I had a husband.
    And if I had enough guts to do NaNoWriMo….
    I haven’t yet. I’m 19 and I prettymuch like to write, drink coffee, take pictures.
    But I have to say, I love that line.
