Instead of being “all about me” I want to give a “Shout Out” and “Well Done” to my daughter who has participated in and completed the NaNoWriMo challenge for the second time.

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and the challenge is to write a 50,000, that’s right, fifty thousand, word novel in the month of November. She has done this in 2010 and 2012 and I am so proud of her because I know from the experience of writing two books and trying to get a daily blog out each day just how hard it is to get that many words down on paper in a specific amount of time, especially when it’s only one month. I know this isn’t an easy time commitment for her with four children and all of their many activities and varied schedules. A big thanks to my daughter’s husband and Beth for all the help and support they give her while she is participating in this writing challenge.

She continues to ask me to participate in this challenge and perhaps I will next year when I once again am typing with both hands.

You are my writing inspiration
