 I have started four books since the pandemic started, and I keep abandoning them to chase down new shiny ideas. I desperately want to type The End sometime this year, so I'm determined to stick with this book until it's finished. To help me with my goal, I participated in Camp NaNoWriMo this month, and I'm proud to say I met my goal of adding 20,000 words to my manuscript a day early!

Even though 20,000 words in a month may seem like nothing to some people, to me it feels really good to have made a goal instead of disappointing myself once again. Now I'm challenging myself to write another 20,000 words before we move (June 25th!), which may be a stretch as I'll be busy with the end-of-school events for my kids and the whole business of actually moving. But after my success this month, I'm excited to give it a try!

Even more exciting: I'm leaving for Storymakers in less than 2 weeks! I can't wait to see all my writing pals, roadtrip with my bestie, and learn more skills to improve my craft. It's going to be amazing!
