I know, I know!

I am supposed to be working on my midterm, however I came across NaNoWriMO and am having the INSANE notion to give it a try. What is it: National Novel Writing Month which runs only from November 1st through the 30th"

"National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30"

I am only contemplating it at this point, but seriously considering. With every thing else I have to do, it would involve writing at least 1666 words per day for 30 days. Do you think I can do it! Would you?

  1. Would I? No way and I'm not even a student. I'm not much of a writer either so that's the biggest reason I wouldn't do NaNoWriMo. I applaud those who are writers and who take the plunge.

  2. Good luck with the Writing.

    Would I do it? No way, not at this current season of my Life. :-) Not even tempting me. :-)

    As The Byrds reminded us, To Everything There Is A Season. (!)

    Aww, come on, am I the only person who had that 45 as a child? (Anyone? anyone?)

    :-)

  3. Hi Robin...I don't know if it’s possible to write a book in a month. Sounds like an impossible task, however???? I am going to ask mom if she has any ideas for a book. She told me that she would like to write a book by taking pictures of the American flag around the country and put it in a book but that would take years to do. I guess I could write a book about the stock market but it would have a limited readership. I think I could collect enough info to write a book on Mrs. Clinton but I don't want to endanger the family. Most people who are negative about the Clintons are destroyed in one way or another. Back to your book, mom says, is always write a book about what you know best. "Being a home schooler and why you became one." That would be interesting. We have a failed socialized school system and that is why people are turning to private schools and home schooling. I was asked what I thought about a national medical program and my comment was, " Why not a national auto program?" The person said, please explain. I said anything that the government runs turns out to be a failure when it tries to compete with the free market system. That's what's wrong with education, that’s why social security is going broke, Medicare and Medicade is a disaster. Welfare in a disaster and look at how well the government is doing on immigration. Maybe I should write a short book on government run programs in the world???? Your mom says I have to learn to shut my brain down. All you did was ask about writing a book and off I go.

    Love you. Dad

  8. Love your first three shirts especially!

    Hey, I didn't know you were one of the Well-Drained Mind ladies. I'd forgotten about that blog. Have you noticed how many homeschoolers are on Fun Monday lately? How'd that happen anyway? I just keep wondering if I "know" any of them from elsewhere on the internet. These internet connections are pretty crazy sometimes. They certainly weave an interesting *web*;o)
