NaNoWriMo: A Month of Insanity

I discovered NaNoWriMo a few months ago while searching for something to engage H11.  She loves to write and wants to be an author.  What better for a budding writer than the challenge of writing a novel?  We were both thrilled.

H11 worked diligently during the month of October to complete the Young Writer's workbook.  She had a wonderful time dreaming of characters and plot lines.  November 1 was intended to be the beginning of a grand adventure.  Instead she woke with a headache and upset stomach that quickly progressed from upset to upsetting.  Once the mess was cleaned up H11 only wanted to go to bed and sleep.  After a four hour nap, she felt well enough to read a bit but not well enough to write.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day for her.

As for myself, I am successful on day 1.  We'll see how well I fare on day 30.
