I successfully wrote 50,000 words in November. [That's 50,000 words on top of my admittedly more sporadic blog posts and other writing projects!]

Did I successfully write my memoir? Not really.  I wrote 50,000 words of raw material that could maybe be rearranged and edited into a memoir.  Once I’m able to look at this project again, which might not be until the new year.

I should have more to say about this process, both as a writing exercise and as an emotional exorcism, but goddamnit I just finished a writing marathon and I feel like I’ll collapse if I take another step.


  1. Congratulations, that is quite something. I am now reading “Storyteller” , the biography of Roald Dahl, and it talks a lot about the writing process and how hard it can be.
    I also hope you will publish sometime because I love your writing.

  2. Holy bazongas, that is impressive!

  3. well done! that’s impressive, I’ve never been able to finish goddamn nanowrimo
