Heather (also known as Rachael to many confused friends) blogged about 30 days of thanks and I read about it here and decided to join in the gratitude parade!

I'm thankful for the opportunity to hold myself accountable and just write! I'm Ist1_1966609_modern_communication participating in NaNoWriMo. What? "National Novel Writing Month is a fun,
seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin
writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel
by midnight, November 30."

Kewl, huh!?

I wrote for one hour earlier and have captured 866 words of my story that didn't exist before today—800 more to go for the daily minimum! I'm especially grateful to my guy, Jeff for suggesting we each stop talking about not having time to write and writing!
