NaNoWriMo – GO!

Yesterday was the official start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). We are participating again this year. Well, three of us are, anyway; Zoey opted out this year. However, since my kids were scattered all over town yesterday and things were hectic, we got our formal start this morning.  We went over the five elements of a good short story or novel, and they began developing their stories.  I am so proud!  🙂

It’s not too late to sign up and join the fun. The Young Writer’s Program is perfect for younger students and this is a wonderful homeschool project. Heck, it’s a wonderful project for anyone. I am determined to finish my novel this year. I will post weekly updates on Saturdays with our word count progress. Cole set a goal of 10,000 words, Sydni chose 5,000, and I have to complete 50,000. EEK! Wish us luck.
