Woo hoo for Sagezilla and Du-Jay who collaborated on a novel for Nanowrimo's youth division and not only won, but far surpassed their initial age appropriate word count goal! This is their 3rd collaboration and I'm so proud of them.
It was a bittersweet year for me. After 4 wins in a row, I began another novel in my rune series and quickly realized that my blog commitments, freelance, the kids, and my daily work load would prevent me from also finishing 50,000 words in 30 days this year. So, I changed over to NaBloPoMo at BlogHer, also a writing based, noble challenge, but much more attainable this year. As opposed to NaNoWriMo (national novel writers month) this one is (national blog posting month) I've agreed to post daily throughout November and am in again for December, too. That's going much better than my poor novel that's been back burnered to simmer for a while.
I've not only posted daily, but finished November with a whopping SIXTY SIX blog posts at ChiIL Mama.com. All posts are listed chronologically, by month and alphabetically, by key words, at the bottom of the blog.
So here's to another round of NaBloPoMo in December. Let the games begin.
