NaNo 2016, Day Three

I must say, I’m pleased with my progress so far. I’m at 7208 words. The target word count for the end of Day Three (at 1667 words each day) is 5001. I started out with a good Day One (4769), but Day Two wasn’t so good (I only added 442 words). Today I’ve been feeling […]

Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Eight years ago today, I began writing LifeIsChange over at wordpress dot com. Wow. I’ve been working this last week or so on bringing those old posts back, and in the process, have been re-reading them. So much has changed in eight years. While I was aware that huge change was happening, I don’t think I […]

NaNoWriMo, Here I Come Again!

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) happens every November! I originally participated in NaNoWriMo from 2004 through 2010, when I lived in Florida, winning 2008, 2009, and 2010. In 2011, I moved to New Jersey! From early 2011 until some time in the late summer of 2016, it felt as if we lived through a series […]

NaNoNoGo . . . and . . . We Do!

Well, I had intended to write something this November, even though I knew I wouldn’t be officially participating in NaNoWriMo, but as it turned out, I didn’t even do my modified not-really NaNo version.  I’m ok with that, though, and I realize now that it wasn’t a very realistic undertaking, with everything else that we’ve […]

My NotReallyNaNoWriMo 2011

I wrestled quite a bit about whether to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, because there is so much going on during the month of November.  SS and I will be in Florida for a week, for our Commitment Ceremony.  We’ve not only been planning the ceremony and reception for months, but now, of course, we […]

Catching Up

Oh, there have been SO many things I’ve wanted to blog about lately, but life is still kind of sped-up for me right now.  I’ll continue to be busy-busy-busy for at least the next couple months.  Not that busy-busy-busy is bad, mind you.  It’s just . . . well . . . very busy. So, […]

Please help me win a new bed!

I debated about posting about this on my blog, since I try to keep my real name separate from my blogging, but I do blog about health and issues that are directly affected by quality of sleep, like ADD/ADHD and Fibromyalgia, and this relates to all of that. SS found an essay contest here to try to win […]

NaNoWriMo Number Seven, and Tools

Yay!!  Win number three, and one day early, no less!  I’m kind of amazed, actually, especially since there must have been a dozen times during the month that I decided to quit.  Some of those times, I was only going to quit this year’s NaNo, and other times, I was going to quit writing altogether, […]

I’ve Got NaNo On My Mind . . . and . . . Is “Wanting” A Sign Of Good Mental Health?

So, while asking myself whether I should or shouldn’t participate in NaNoWriMo this year, because I’ve got a lot on my plate, getting ready for my move early next year, I’ve also been planning my novel. I guess that’s my answer. It’ll be my seventh NaNoWriMo, and hopefully my third win.  It’s become such a […]

Strange Facts

I found a fun web site while trolling for Strange(r) topic material for this month. There are a lot of interesting and amusing tidbits on this site, and here are some of my initial thoughts or reactions to some of them (’cause I know everybody out there is on the edge of their seats, wondering […]
