Na(Jo)WriMo

It's NaNoWriMo time!

I do not have any desire to write fiction. I can think of two fiction stories... heh. As I sit and think, I keep remembering more. Okay. I have definitely written at least three fiction stories and all of them were written before I was 13 or 14.

I do have a very strong desire to write non-fiction and so that's what I'm doing this month. The "Jo" in this title stands for "journal" which is what I'm doing to achieve the goal of 50,000 words. So far I've reached the daily word count effortlessly.

I don't have very many other goals for the writing I'm doing. I've written about events in my day and the thoughts and feelings that came up as a result. I've written about relationships and parenting and random snippets of true-story material gleaned from observations and interactions with people.

It's all completely uncensored and with no over-arching goal or message that I'm driving at. I'm just writing. I show up for my life each day and write what I notice. I think it'll be interesting to look back at the end of the month and see what the themes and/or plot emerges. Assuming I make it to the end of the month.
