Special kind of crazy…

Special kind of crazy

WeRdS! So many werds and I am behind by 1500…? How the frack did that happen? For all you literary, grammar, and spelling Nazi’s- I wrote that on purpose.

…I know how it happened. I broke a #NaNoWriMo cardinal rule: I edited!

I am so sorry. I will take my punishment in small increments of no more than 5 swaps at a time. Flogging is an acceptable form of punishment, but with-holding wine would be classified cruel and unusual.

I must say that over-all I’m doing well on this crazy 30 day journey. I have been reading posts where people are freaking out over the process. Do they not realize they won’t lose anything if they don’t reach 50,000 words? I think they need to reread the rules. I am at the point where every additional word is a win. It’s one word more than I had to begin with. Chill and just write your story.

Does it have to be a “novel”? No. It can be a collection of short stories, a mountain of poetry, a novella, a play…whatever you want. It’s a challenge, a goal, and a way for all the crazy writers to reach out to one another for support.



Have to scream now

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
