Dear readers.....

Dear readers,
     I'm sorry I've been neglecting you for the sake of my novel this month. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping in touch, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, nothing. I'm sorry that I give you crummy advise on how to get through NaNoWriMo when I can't even get through it myself. I'm sorry that I'm so behind and I'm sorry that you have to hear me, and probably everyone else doing NaNo, complain about being behind. I'm sorry I haven't been thinking about stories, or plots, or characters. I'm sorry I work nearly 25 hours a week all while going to school, and working out. I'm sorry for the receptiveness of this post. I'm sorry that it's basically a sixteen year old girl complaining about everything and anything she can put her mind to. I truly am sorry....
                     A previously hopeful NaNoWriMo participant.

NaNoWriMo (Day 2)

      Day one for me went well. My parents let me skip school, and I got to catch up on sleep and homework as well as reach my word goal of 1,667. Today I brought my laptop to school, and during Journalism when we got a while for free time my teacher let me bring out my laptop and write. I told her I was doing NaNoWriMo and she seemed impressed. Later she asked me what my story is about, her and everyone else I told said that it sounded really cool. Everyone seemed to tell everyone else in the class, and on my way to the Orch room, where I plan on doing all my writing at lunch, someone shouted "Go write that novel Hannah-Beth" that made me smile.
      I found myself telling a lot more people than I expected to. I figured I wouldn't tell many people but when they asked what I was working on I was really excited to tell them.
      Between my Journalism class, half Lunch period, and a little after school I was able to reach my goal today of 3,334.
       I can tell this is going to take work, and a lot of planning. It's going to be a wonder if I'm able to manage like this for the full month. I plan on writing strait through lunch for the month, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to talk to my few lunch friends for the whole month, but that's ok. All for the Novel.
