We Interrupt This Knitting Blog....

With a writing blog. It's November, which means for thousands of people, it is also National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. The past couple of years, I have watched as Renee and Kim have been writing, sometimes competing in nano. Well, this year, I had a story that really needed to get out of my head and onto paper. I'm really good at coming up with decent story ideas, but I never get around to finishing them because I tend to write as if going down the rabbit hole. This year is different though.

This weekend, I managed to log in over 10,000 words on my story. So far at school today, I have logged in almost 1500 words and will probably have more by the end of the day if I am still feeling the story grow.

So, yeah, this is a knitting blog, right? I did knit a little on Friday, and I have knit two repeats today on a feather and fan lace scarf. That's the extent of my knitting right now. It's been at a stand-still since last week when I was writing the last parts of my outline so I know where to direct this story.

I'll have pictures of the two-inch long scarf tomorrow though. And probably more word updates!

Knit on...and write some too.
