I have been coerced…

crest-bda7b7a6e1b57bb9fb8ce9772b8faafbI mentioned some time ago that my mother has been pushing me to write an Amish book. Well, she finally got me to agree.

She and another friend are participating in NaNoWriMo this year and they are dragging me along for the ride.

I was asked to participate in NaNo several years ago by someone who I thought was my friend. She wasn’t. She took one of my story ideas and used it as her own and I (having no proof of this) couldn’t do a thing about it. So I didn’t write for a very long time after that. And I did NOT participate in NaNoWriMo that year either.

However, I have given God all of the bitterness from my past and I have forgiven this “friend” so I can move on and write again… I hope anyway.

We will be attending the local NaNo kick off bash and then on November 1st, we’ll see if I still have what it takes to write a novel. And I may or may not get 50,000 words. Heck, I’ll be happy to get 10,000!

I even added a word count widget to my blog so you can all watch my progress if you want to.

Wish me luck!

And to you as well!
