Winners & NaNo-ing

So it’s Friday and this week has been difficult to get good word count in. I think the time change has factored in, in that I am so tired at night and then get up really early. I haven’t caught up in my sleep, I suppose. I’ve had things to do several nights this week, which has also contributed to my lack of word count, but you know, sometimes life is just more important than words on a page.

Below I’ve listed the winner of Second Chance Brides by Vicki McDough, but really, there are two winners this week. I feel like I am a winner for having written EVERY day for the past two weeks. That is huge for me and a habit I’ve been wanting…needing…to develop for quite some time. That’s the real reason I joined NaNo–to get into a good habit of daily writing. Thirty days to make a good habit, right? Well NaNo, you are  my inspiration this month. Thanks for giving me success in The Daily Write.


Winner of Vicki McDonough’s Second Chance Bride is:

  1. The writing life is full of ups and downs – I wouldn't worry about it too much! May next week be better for you!!


  2. The Young One's art class had a series of assignments called M.A.H.O.D. Make a habit of drawing. It's helped me. Each day a drawing or doodle. Something to practice with. Five minutes, 15 min an hour, whatever time I have for that day. M.A.H.O.W. Make a habit of writing? Hope you continue to have fun with NaNo


  3. I agree with Catherine. Don't let the down times get you down. Up times are soon to follow. Get some sleep! It always helps.

  7. Oh gosh. I'm not doing NaNo, but the time change has kicked my rear. Every night by about 6, my body tells me it's bedtime. I hope I adjust soon!

    Good luck with NaNo, Sherrinda!


  8. You go, girl. Sometimes God does want us writers to do nonwriterly things. But EVERYTHING is writerly b/c you are gaining new stories, new insights!!
    I believe in you.
