It's Nanowrimo 2014! Who is with me?

Well, between life, appointments, Halloween with three kids under 6, and my recent habit of NEVER SLEEPING(okay, slight exaggeration there), I didn't get any other flash fictions finished like I'd planned. I might post more at another time, but for now my attention is turned to something else.

Yep, it's NaNoWriMo time! This year, I'm going to be tackling the most intimidating writing project that I have. My autobiography.

For years I've thought about writing my story, but it never felt quite right. That is, until a recent conversation with my mother, a confession on my part. Now I finally feel free to write it. It is part self-therapy, to purge myself of things of the past that I've been letting hold me prisoner, and (hopefully) part testimony.

Seeing as I'm pantsing it completely(I hadn't even decided to write it until a couple days ago!), I don't know how it will turn out yet or what will be included for certain. All I know is that I'm going to try my best to write it with honesty and pray that all other 'shiny' ideas wait to show off their shininess until after NaNo is done. Seriously, I already hear my other novels calling me... -_- In fact, I might have to write flash fictions to keep my creative sanity during this Nano.

So, who else is participating in NaNoWrimo, the wonderful, month-long event of frenzied writing and (likely) barrels of caffeine? Feel free to Buddy me if you are!
