It's Over and I Can Reclaim My Life

As you can see I have met the NaNoWriMo Challenge and prevailed. I can not begin to tell you the feeling of accomplishment I have. Now If I just had some cover art.

NaNoWriMo is Going Well. Too Well.

If you've noticed the NaNoWriMo widget in the lower sidebar, I am more or less on track with the NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth.  In fact I will probably surpass the word count I stopped at last year by Friday. I am pumped and psyched and wanting to get through this.  Some participants have already completed the 50,000 word challenge.  I just hope that I can stay on task and finish this year.

By some strange quirk of fate, the co-worker I sit next to after our department moved to a new area is also doing NaNoWriMo only she finished hers last year where I fell short. This year we can encourage each other. I think support is making all the difference this year.

In Memoriam : Michael Crighton

Micheal Crighton, author of Jurassic Park and Andromeda Strain has died at the age of 66. He past away Tuesday after losing his battle with cancer.
"Through his books, Michael Crichton served as an inspiration to students of all ages, challenged scientists in many fields, and illuminated the mysteries of the world in a way we could all understand," his family said in a statement.

I remember reading "The Andromedan Strain" and not being able to put it down. His imagination and writing inspired me and does to this day.
