Outting Myself

If J.K. Rowling outted Dumbledore, than I'll out the fact that I've signed up for NaNoWriMo. I even have a profile! So for the next two weeks, I'm focusing on a short story for the blog, my adaptation of Switchcraft and all the pre-writing for my NaNoMo book.
If you want to join me, become my buddy here.
Truthfully, I'm a little nervous. I've never committed to 50,000 words in one month and with a nanny-less two year-old and Thanksgiving looming ahead, it'll be a real challenge. (Not to mention a real kick in the ego if I don't make it!)
But for the last three weeks or so, I've been in promo mode for Switchcraft, which has been a life of writing press releases, stalking bloggers and reviewers and setting up events. It's been great but I miss writing and I'm starting to crack up. For example, in my non-writing interests I initially wrote "booking" when I meant "cooking!"

Have fun, Mary!! I did Nano in 2004 and now that is my debut novel with Grand Central! It is a lot of work, fast writing, but it feels so good to see your word count rise and rise!!! THe hardest time is around Thanksgiving becvause you are at the climax of your book, yet ther eis pumpkin pie to be made. I ditched turkey day that year - our families delivered leftovers, which was still yummy! I hope you have time to blog about it!!!
