I did it! Midnight, Halloween, I was sitting in front of my laptop and starting to type. NaNoWriMo 2013 is officially underway. The hardest part every year is starting I had so many doubts that I could even do the first sentence and in fact I forgot I was goingto hav a go at first person this year - so three hundred words in I was already editing; but now I've started and I did an hour last night, reaching 1,090 words!
I've been procrastinating this morning, even filing my tax return before I start and doing this blog post; but I can't put it off any longer. It's time to head out to my garden room and start typing. Wish me luck...
Cool NaNo Gadgets...
This year NaNo has a great way to track our progress, so here are my stats, feel free to give me a nudge if you see me dropping behind!

She now writes about people who want to break free from the constraints of their lives, a subject she's deeply familiar with.
