You do have a story inside you; it lies articulate and waiting to be written — behind your silence and your suffering. ~Anne Rice, Pandora

Sit Down and Write 6 - How's it going and Guess What?


So, what have you all accomplished so far? I'm not going to go in to my unique situation, although this might give you an idea...


Anyhoo, I've decided to extend this lovely event until Sunday, April 19. That's right. I figure, why not?

Comment below on your progress and/or if you're in for the extended duration.

Sit Down and Write 6 - a write-a-thon for whatever you need to write #sitdownwrite


It's time for Sit Down and Write again! I can't believe this is number 6. I am behind with posting this sign up. Nothing new there. Life is always throwing me curves.

Now, if you haven't joined us before, you might ask what you can do for Sit Down and Write. Well, you can catch up on book reviews (or other blog writings), you can work on your work in progress, you can journal, you can write short stories, you can prep your novel (research, take notes, etc.) or other writing project. I'm not fussy and I HATE rules. So, let's do this! Sign up below if you're in and write up a post if you want. I will be posting updates periodically so I can stop in and check on what you're doing. If you would like to update on twitter, our hashtag is #sitdownwrite.

On my end, I am going to be doing some novel prep (and hopefully some actual writing) and I'm also starting Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way this week so I'll be doing that too.

Good luck! Now sit down...and write!

P.S. Don't forget to grab the button. There's a handy grab code in the sidebar.

NaNoWriMo - Day 3

I think in my case it should be called NaNoWriNO. Seriously, why do I think I can do this, only to fail year after year. Now this doesn't mean I'm giving up...but I am getting discouraged, which doesn't bode well considering tomorrow is only the fourth day. I'm just wondering why...just when we have something big planned like this...our bodies decide to be extra tired, our minds more clouded, more demands surround us from work and family? Is it the universe trying to tell us something?

Okay, I'm finished waxing thoughtful. I will try to soldier on.

How about you? How is your journey going so far?

NaNoWriMo - Day 2

Well...no comment on my progress because...well, no progress yet. I had no time to prep in October so that is what I'm trying to do now. I know, I know. That's not the way it's done. But when have I ever followed the rules? Probably why I don't have my novel written yet. Ack!

How about you? How are you struggling...or succeeding? Did you prep in October or are you still in the same boat as I am?

NaNoWriMo 2014 and a Support Group

Am I ready? No. Am I ever ready? That would also be a no. But I never give up and so I'm jumping on the NaNoWriMo bandwagon once again.

To hold myself accountable and to offer support to my friends who are also braving the NaNo waters this month, I will be posting here daily, whether I've written or not. These posts will be for daily accountability and the comments each day will be a forum for my friends (and other NaNo participants) to stop by and share their struggles, successes, pretty much anything. It's a NaNo support group OR The--rant, share, vent, brainstorm, shoot the breeze--Support Group!



I hope you will join me so we can support each other in this daunting endeavor. Yes, I said daunting. Anyone would be a fool not to call it so.

Happy writing!!!
