Redbeard's Journal

Seriously. I have red hair and a beard. What did you expect?

Has it really been since late October since I posted?  Yeek.

Anyway, I feel I owe an update to NaNoWriMo at the very least.

In what has become a broken record, my work suddenly ballooned a week into November, and I was forced into giving up my latest attempt at NaNoWriMo only a couple of thousand words in.

However....

My youngest set a goal of completing 11,000 words, and she reached 10,800 before she typed "The End" on her story. I'm very proud of her for reaching the kids' level goal, as she and I worked side by side while she wrote. (I worked at the time, but since I wasn't in meetings, she was able to focus.)

I think that next year I'm going to try again, and I'm going to encourage her to officially sign up for the Young Writers' version of NaNoWriMo, so she can track her progress that way.

Yeah, I'm really proud of her.
