NaNoWriMo: How to Stay Motivated

Why, exactly, is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, held in November? I mean, there's Thanksgiving. And 'tis the season to start getting ready for the holidays.

Oh my gosh. [...]

My mom gave me the sweetest presents, though ... chocolate and these yummy dry eraser markers for my plotting chart! I love the pink one and as soon as I'm finished with this post, I'm going to redo and finish my chart with the prettiest [...]
