One of my life goals is to write and publish a book. I have had this goal for as long as I can remember.

I haven’t really written anything since Elisabeth and Julius were really young. I have written one complete shortish story, and have a couple half-written stories. But I have had no urge to finish them for years. However, over the last few months, I have had an idea swimming around in my head. Nothing really hashed out, just an idea. So I have decided this year I am going to participate in NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, it is an online challenge where the goal is to write 50 000 words in the month of November.

I have participated before, and one year I even managed to write 50 000 words. Other years I came close.. or not close. But it has always been a great motivator. If I am going, to be honest, I am not sure how successful I will be this year, but I hope at the very least to get a start on this story in my mind. Wondering what the story is? Well… you will have to wait, I am not ready to share about it yet. But maybe I will blog about it sometime in November. Either way, I hope you wish me luck. I would really love to get all 50 000 or more done in November.
