NaNoWriMo takes over

Even if you were to ask me, and no, this isn’t a covert fishing expedition for compliments on my writing, I would not show you what I am working on for NaNoWriMo. It’s just a great pile of stuff. I am putting down memories of my family so that Peter can have them. Peter, as well as Buck and I, have been estranged from my side of the family for a long time — details are too voluminous for a blog post. :-O 

But I slog away at it, and am getting some mental benefit from it beyond the “Yay! I made my word count!” elation each day. This is worth the effort of getting it all down in a document.

I have decided that it’s a good thing for a parent to do, to put his or her life down on paper, or on disk, for the children. I’m hoping to give Peter a sense of what my family is, where he came from.

  1. Oh you’re doing so well! and I bet you can hit the 50,000, even without it being a novel. This is a great thing you’re doing, and I’m hoping that, well, I’m hoping I can read mebbe just a leettle bit of it?

  2. Paunchiness: you’re right about the impermanence of blogs. I wouldn’t trust all of the memories to this. I’m just also writing stuff down for my son. I hope he actually reads it now! O:-)
