This was quite the NaNoWriMo experience for me. In my last post I talked about how NaNo was in 2017. And wow. This was a GOOD year. Not exactly in the sense that you’re probably expecting, but amazing none-the-less.
I know I promised you a NaNo journal I was going to be sharing, BUT that didn’t happen. *hides* I totally forgot about it when I was just a few days in. And honestly, I’m glad I did. Remember how I said how I was going to be extremely busy? A journal wasn’t exactly a top priority, so I didn’t need to be stressing myself by adding one more thing to do daily.
So, NaNoWriMo. Have you heard of it? Are you prepping for it?
It stands for National Novel Writing Month, which happens to be during the month of November. It starts in three days. Three days. I’m going to try to attempt writing 50,000 words in a month, and it’s most likely going to be crazy.
And sorry this is a few days late. I’m blaming it on trying to prep for NaNo. 😉
But before I get to what I’m doing this year, I wanted to share with you a little bit about my NaNo experience last November.
I wonder why so many of us shy away from that word. At least I do. 😉
We go, go, go, and it’s exhausting. But I want to encourage you to make time for a break.
By the time you get this, I will be on vacation with my family at the beach. This time is very much needed for me, in the midst of a busy life, lots of tasks, school, and everything else that’s causing me to go too fast.
Engaged. Entrapped. Hopeless. To escape that less-than-desirable future, Nicole takes flight, seeking for freedom across the Irish Blue. She soon learns that freedom is a frame of mind and all freedom comes at a price— one that could cost her everything.
This is the premise for a short story by K.E. Stanton, and I had the honor to both read and review her work in exchange for an honest review.
I know, this isn’t a normal post or on a scheduled Friday, so don’t worry. I still will posting next week on Friday.

This post is a bit different from most of mine, but I hope that through it you can see my heart behind what I do. Behind this blog. This will be a little glimpse at what writing really is for me, and why I’m passionate about it.
