Can I just take a second to say that I feel incredibly grateful that I have a pretty fantastic support system around me?
Tonight I walked downstairs to grab (yet another) diet coke and found that my mom and stepdad had company over for dinner. They invited me to have some and since it was carbs with deep fried meat and cheese on it (fettuccini carbonara) I, of course, said yes. Just as I sat down, the first question my mother asked me was, “What’s your word count?”
She’s not the only one who has asked me how this is going. I’ve got some close friends who have asked me several times how I’m progressing with this. This is an insane undertaking. 50,000 words in 30 days is A LOT OF WORDS YOU GUYS! And to know that I have people around who’ve not only got my back but are genuinely interested in what I’m doing? That makes me feel pretty damn cool. And I’ve got friends who have no idea what NaNoWriMo is, but see me all over Facebook and Twitter about it and are asking me what it is and how it’s going.
I think that’s cool. Why? Because people are paying attention to me. And they are genuinely interested in what’s going on in my life. I mean, that makes me feel kind of important. But mostly interesting and liked. I like that people think I’m interesting and that they seem to like me.
So I guess what I want to say is this: Thank you to everyone in my life who’s sticking by me when I do this. I really appreciate it.
Oh, and I’m doing this again in August. Just so you’re prepared. 🙂
Health, Peace, & Happiness,
