National Novel Writing Month tests not only your own stamina for plot, character, and the wherewithal to sit down and write 1,667 words every single morning, but also the love and patience of your family. As I sit here in the kitchen surrounded by the family getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner, I am filled with thankfulness that they are so patient with me. They all are so supportive. My sister also types away on the family computer near by. We shout out our word count to each other to encourage each other onwards towards the 40,003 words our schedule demands of us.
The smells of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes drift by me trying to distract me from my writing. Every thirty minutes or so its time for a dance break. I get up with my sisters and dance around to a Maroon 5 song before getting back to writing.
I wish I could write a novel every month just for the thrill of hitting my word count each day.
Thank you NaNoWriMo!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
