why am I doing NaNoWriMo…again?

Well. I said maybe I was, then I wasn’t, now I am. This NaNoWriMo thing is crazy. I’ve done it for several years, and here I am doing it again.

I never win. By that I mean I never achieve the 50 thousand words I’m supposed to produce. Interestingly, it’s about producing words. Not producing some good content. So you’d think I could do a massive brain dump and give myself permission for a terrible draft.

We’ll see. Stay tuned for some unexpected updates. Like. Maybe I finish. Or give up after 75 words.

Coincidentally, St. Teresa of Avila happened to write on scraps of paper (see picture above). Now that she and I are friends, maybe things will change.

I don’t know why she has a tambourine in this picture, but I’m going to take it as a sign that she’s my cheerleader. I’m sure that’s it, cuz I’d be sorely disappointed if it was to launch into a painful rendition of Kumbaya.

St. Teresa, pray for me.

  1. Good luck! I’ve been too chicken to try the NaNoWriMos in the past, but St. Teresa found me this year as well, and now I’m feeling inspired.

    St. Teresa, pray for us (and may shake that tambourine a little for encouragement too:).

Hi! Wanna say something? Go ahead. Be nice.
