National Novel Writing Month is about to start and I’m on board. NaNoWriMo is a worldwide event where people commit to writing a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. (As a point of reference, Catcher in the Rye is about 50,000 words.)
I'm working on a Vampire story for my PWE class and am about ready to start writing so I'll just use it for NaNoWriMo. I'll keep you updated on my progress through this blog but if anyone else is doing NaNoWriMo I'm listed as girlonwheels.

In an effort to get back on a regular posting schedule I am participating in NaBloPoMo again in November. I know that I'll be really busy on a few of the days and might struggle to come up with post ideas. So does anyone out there have any questions for me?

Prayer Requests

Just a quick note to let you all know I'm doing okay (still hurting but trying to solider on) and to ask for prayers for Melanie and Colbie.

Melaine is in ICU with serious complications from H1N1. She is one of the first caringbridge kids I 'met' and her whole family is so special. They have been so supportive of me through out my journey. Please also say an extra prayer for her Mom, Amber, as she is several months pregnant and has H1N1 as well.

Colbie is a real sweetheart who has Mito and is also in ICU with complications from H1N1.
Thank you all.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... A church... A home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... We are in charge of our Attitudes.”
