Starting tomorrow, November 1, 2009, I along with thousands of others will be taking on the challenge of creating a 50,000 word novel in thirty days. NaNoWriMo has become an annual event for me. I've been doing it since 2001 and have completed the challenge four out of seven years. This year, I hope to make it number five.
My book will be an account of the search and finding of my brother, given up for adoption before I was born. With nothing to go on, I pursued him for 21 years and finally found him on Facebook 13 days ago. The similarities are striking and we both said that I had to write about it because you really can't make this stuff up! I know I've got 50,000 words in me.
This year's for us, Blaine.
