And it begins...

I've been juggling so much in real life in order to try to bring this dream to life. I tell ya, it's easy to find excuses not to write. There is always so much to do between soccer practices and taxing my kids and their friends around. To top it all off my husband and I are trying to start our own business which brings in a whole new kettle of stinky fish. lol

But, I am determined to do this. I have learned that I need solid goals or deadlines. Something that stops me from making excuses why I can't do something and forces me to put my priorities in the order I want them, which isn't always the easiest way.

I'm attempting National Novel Writing Month this year. 50,000 words in 30 days. That sounds very intimidating but when you break it down to 1667 words a day. That's not as scary. It's not as easy. We're three days into it and my total count is already a bit behind where it should be by eleven hundred words but I have time to make that up. LOL I hope!

If you are attempting this craziness then please buddy up with me. I'll happily support everyone who is attempting this brave feat along with me. :)
