Nanowrimo 2007 – I won!

Nano Winner
To win National Novel Writing Month, all you need to do is to write 50,000 words on your book between November 1 and November 30. It’s not as impressive as it sounds – it breaks down to 1667 word per day, which I can do in less than an hour. Sometimes less than half an hour if I’m really not picky about my freewriting.

This year was particularly challenging, what with having migraines on more days than not, plus brain numbing cognitive issues that flattened me more than usual. But I rallied in the last few days, writing over 10,000 words in the past four days. Gah! I am in shock, in that I really did let go of finishing. Maybe that’s the trick that did it?

Welcome to my new blog home! I changed to mostly because I wanted to support a smaller blogging outfit. I also thought I should get my last name out of the domain for security reasons.

Why Forces of Nature? It’s the name I came up with when I was working on my artist’s statement. Turns out my ideas about meaning, creativity, and spirituality – not to mention my experience in this life – all stem from one force of nature or another.

And aren’t we all, in one way or another, a force of nature? I think so.
