Look Look!!

Take a look at the right hand side of my Blog!! I have a new Badge over there and I'm proud to announce that I am a NanoWrimo Winner in 2008!! I got my 50,000 word novel FINISHED and in record time I might add ;)

Of course it is a rough, rough first draft, but it is down on 'paper' and ready for editing!! I am so excited. I really never thought I would want to write a whole NOVEL. I thought that was really more for Hubby, but it turns out that I really ENJOYED writing this novel.

I LOVE to read and found that the actual writing of a book was almost as enjoyable to me as the reading of one! WOW!

Now I am enjoying going back and filling in more detail, adding better descriptions, ect. I can't wait until it's 'finished' and readable =) Then watch out Cuz!! You'll be readin it for me!! After all I don't have an editor yet ;)

And just for fun, In case you can't see the badge along the right hand side of my blog....

Hi Mindy, Just wanted to let you know that you are Sarah's secret family this month... What the girls do is pick a family to pray for each month and they are their secret family. It is something they have been doing for a while... and they really enjoy thinking of others... someday I think we will expand to send a few cards as well...
Love, Lori and crew
