Writing Stories of Love, Faith and Happy Endings While Enjoying the Journey

A NaNoWriMo Thanksgiving


1. I’m thankful for the great camaraderie among fellow NaNo’ers.
2. I’m thankful to have reached a word count of 38,565 today.
3. I’m thankful for the energy to persevere each day.
4. I’m thankful for the support and patience of loved ones.
5. I’m thankful I’ve been able to maintain my daily word count.
6. I’m thankful my tendinitis hasn’t been a factor this year.
7. I’m thankful NaNoWriMo is only once a year.
8. I’m thankful at the end of this battle, I’ll have a good start to a very rough draft.
9. I’m thankful that I have twelve months to recuperate from this madness ~ oh, I forgot I need to edit this mess.
10. Most importantly, I’m thankful that NaNoWriMo 2012 is almost over!
