It Is About To Get Real…

November 1, 2016Read More


I’m sitting at my computer, way too late again…It is the eleventh hour before the eleventh month.  11:11pm.  Lucky numbers in this house.  I am taking the plunge.  Last November I embarked upon my first NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  I was successful in fulfilling the requirement of writing 50,000 words in 30 days – no small feat.  I was pumped and proud, but then I jammed on the brakes.  Not this time!  Call me crazy, but I am announcing my win before we begin.  I have been training for this marathon for my entire life – but especially in the last year.  I have published 10 articles for HAC Enhance and Delaware Hospice (Two of which come out tomorrow and one of which has been chosen by the teacher of the writing class I attend at Helen Graham Cancer Center to be the topic of our next class!).  I have helped many students construct and edit their incredible college essays.  I have spent countless hours analyzing SAT reading comprehension, essay and grammar passages.  I am ready.  This year the goal is a completed book by the end of the month.  I am doing it.  YOLO!  The time is NOW to go snatch my dreams by the horns.  I love this year’s graphic – it is very apropos.  What happens if I fail?  No no no – What happens if I fly?  What if no one reads it?  It won’t matter.  I need to finish this project so that I can begin the next 4 or 5 that are on my list.  So my working title and cover are below.  Time to tell my story.  “Don’t Judge Me By The Chapter You Walked In On.”
