So, you know I’ve been working on a book… for, like, 2 years. I mean, not always working on it for 2 years. More like I really worked on it about 2 years ago, then I’ve added a couple paragraphs every few months ever since.

Anyway, I’m ready to be done with it. I want 2012 to be about revisions, editing (oh, there will be MUCH editing), and hopefully pitching, and maybe even finding an agent. I don’t want 2012 to be about writing it.

I heard about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)Β last week, and on November 1st I said to hell with it, I’m in. I’ve committed to writing 1,675 words a day in the month of November. My goal is to be done with this book by December 1st (well, at least the first draft).

I write well over 1,675 words a day between my posts here, my tweets, emails, and freelance projects. It shouldn’t be hard, but it will mean some of those things will have to take a back seat. My posts here will likely be be brief, lots of pictures, fewer words, and lots of Mommy Truths.

Actually, I think I’d like to open my Mommy Truths series up to guest submissions. If you’ve got a funny or sweet mommy truth to share (or daddy truth!), send it my way. Jill at babyrabies dot com.

Please title it Mommy Truth (or Daddy Truth) so that I can quickly filter it into the right folder.
Please keep it non-judgemental.
Please keep it brief (think Tweet length, 140 characters-ish).
Please don’t get upset if I don’t publish it right away or get back to you right away.
Please understand I may not be able to publish it at all.
Please include your blog url if you’d like me to link it back to you, but you don’t have to have a blog to submit one.

No need to format it. I can do that. Just send me the typed out “truth.”

You all never fail to crack me up and make me smile, so I can’t wait to read what you submit!

Thanks for all your help and support.

  1. I’m stuck in the Land of Edits for my current manuscript, so I’m not doing NaNo this year (even though I want to write again SO BADLY), but I always love cheering on others who are participating. Have so much fun with it, and best of luck!! πŸ™‚
