To #NaNoWriMo or not to NaNoWriMo

I've been weighing this back and forth for over a month...should I or shouldn't I? To be perfectly honest, I'm still not sure. I have never successfully "won" NaNoWriMo.

You know what? To hell with it. I'm in!

Hit me up on the NaNo site if you want to buddy up @ thetruebookaddict
I may update on Twitter (@truebookaddict), Facebook (Michelle Stockard Miller) and/or Instagram (@truebookaddict)...and here on this blog. If you don't hear from me, it's not going well. lol

Here I go, into The Further (I'm watching "Insidious.") 😵

Sit Down and Write 9 - Extended! #SitDownWrite

Because I can...I've decided to extend Sit Down and Write through August 31. I've had a lot going on and then this happened...

Excerpt from a post at my True Book Addict blog:

You may not have heard about Photobucket screwing over a ton of people with their new third party image hosting plan. (Read more here: Basically, it means if you have a free account, you can no longer host your images without paying $400/year! So, all those clever grab codes I make for images and buttons...they have to be fixed with a new link from wherever the images are now being hosted. Luckily, I own two domains on GoDaddy so I get free image storage up to a certain amount and then I can pay extra if I need more (only $1.99/month). But with 7+ blogs/sites, it's going to take me a bit. I hope you will bear with me.

That's right. I've had to work on fixing all the images on all my blogs. I'm still not done. Luckily, the sidebar on this blog didn't take much work, but I'm sure there are plenty of unconnected images in older blog posts. So, if you happen to visit any older posts, I apologize. It's going to take me a while to fix everything completely over all my blogs. I probably won't fix individual older posts at True Book Addict, as there are over 1700 posts. 🙀

The reality is...I haven't been able to focus on my writing plans, and then I'm hosting a two week readathon coming up on Monday. That's the reason I decided to extend this through August 31. My sons go back to school on August 7th so I'll have some alone time again during the day (in between working). I'm still planning a last ditch effort this month, as I did sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo. But it won't be surprise if I don't finish that. I usually don't. lol

Tell me how your writing is going. Did the photobucket issue affect your sites?

Sit Down and Write 9 - June 15 through July 15 #SitDownWrite

I actually decided last week to host this, but I've been so busy, I'm just now posting the sign up. I'm hoping I can stay organized enough to do what I plan to do during this writeathon, which is work on my novel...actually mostly novel prep and there will be a lot of note taking and perhaps some sort of outline prep. I'm hoping to do daily posts, or at least every other day, to hold myself accountable. 

Sit Down and Write is a writeathon for whatever you want/need to write. 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. Feel free to join in from social media if you would rather. Our hashtag is #sitdownwrite.

I'm still on the fence about Camp NaNoWriMo next month. Usually when I decide to do it, I set myself up for failure. If I get a lot accomplished by June 30, I just might do it though.

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

Sign up! No linky...just leave a comment with your blog link or where on social media you'll be updating.

I hope you will join me!
