nanoOkay, I did it.  I actually did two things last evening.  Following a link I found on Chris’s blog – http://thestoryreadingapeblog.com/, I signed up for a (free) 8 week writing course (https://iversity.org/courses/the-future-of-storytelling?r=103aa).  It’s called the Future of Storytelling, and it has participants from around the world.  It started October 25th so I did the first Chapter (8 lessons) last evening. The second Chapter is posted today.  I thought it would give me some suggestions. I like it so far.

The second thing I did was to sign up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writer’s Month).  I thought it would get me a jump-start on my children’s novel.  So it’s going to be a busy month for me.  I have my last college class, and that will finish just before Christmas (December 23rd).  I have the Storytelling class that runs through December 20th. I have NaNoWriMo which runs for the entire month of November – it’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in a month.  I do like a challenge!

  2. Wow! You do like a challenge. Or several challenges at once! I was about to hit the sign up button for NaNoWriMo when I decided to look into it a bit more. The pedantic moderators at WordPress have decreed that my non-fiction epistle is not actually fiction! Picky, picky, picky. Good luck with your children’s book.

      Yeah, I thrive on stress. 🙂 I don’t know if I can get it to 50,000 words, but I am going to try.
