nanowrimo and… (day 1)

November 1 means two things this year. 1.) my birthday is over (boo!) and 2.) NaNoWriMo is underway (yea!).

For the next 30 days, this blog is going to be a little whacked. Each post is going to be much shorter than normal (I hear some of you cheering), and each post will have 2 parts:

1.) an update on NaNoWriMo and 2.) an update on what else is going on in my world.

If you feel the need to take a 30-day break from my blog, go with my blessing.

NaNoWriMo Update:

For those of you who don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Thousands of crazy people around the country (and the world!) are committing to churning out a 50,000 word novel from scratch from November 1 to November 30. That’s close to 1700 words a day. (which is why my 900-word blog posts are being trimmed)

In the coming days, I’ll share fun! and exciting! tidbits about my journey to NaNoWriMo, my husband‘s take on it, my agent‘s advice, what my novel is about, and what this 30-day craziness is doing to my health, family and sanity.

If you have specific questions, let me know! I’d love to answer them.

Birthday Book Update:

If you missed my Birthday Post yesterday, I would LOVE it if you took a minute to read it. Basically, I shared my heart for getting my Expecting book into the hands of women who are contemplating abortion, in the hopes that they might choose life for their babies instead. And I asked for your help. If you want to donate a copy of the book to a crisis pregnancy center, just click here and donate $5.

You guys blew me away yesterday (and then this morning at church). I can’t even begin to tell you how you blessed my heart. I cannot wait to get those books, write your first names in them, pray over them and send them off to women in need.

You’ve donated 97 books so far. Did you hear me? NINETY-SEVEN.

Praising God for each and every one of you today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    How cool! I love that you are blessing women that way. You can count on my prayers, Marla.

    I have been writing a novel. It’s getting some shape…though, I doubt it will be done by the end of November. Maybe the end of the year??

    Love to you!!
