WOW, I Did It! I Completed NaNoWriMo and NoBloPoMo for November

Well I officially did it.  I successfully completed the NaNoWriMo challenge, meaning I have officially written at least 50,000 words in an original novel by me.  I had just heard about these two challenges in November, but decided to attempt to complete them both.  After all I had everything to gain by trying and nothing to lose.  So I stepped out on faith and was amazed this evening to be able to write this post saying I completed both challenges.  I am amazed that I did them both.

I know that some people knew what I was trying to do, but I did not really broadcast it to everyone.  Now I want all my friends to know what I have done with God’s help.  I know it had to be Him on provided the inspiration and that helped the words flow freely.  I truly am amazed at His goodness and mercy.  I still need to finish the novel, because for some crazy reason, fifty thousand words was not enough to complete what I wanted to say.  But there is not much left.  Plus I can already see this book is going to need at least one sequel to complete the story.  I am not willing to commit beyond that.

Today is also the first day of Advent.  Unfortunately my advent wreath is up in the attic still, so I am praying I can convince my children to bring down our Christmas tree tomorrow.  At least my Christmas tree is up even if we don’t have any lights or decorations on it yet.

So what is up in your world today?

Getting Ready to Probably Move my Blog

So everything I have read online indicates I should move my blog from Blogger to WordPress.  I have not decided that this is what I want to do yet.  But I am working on getting my new blog on WordPress setup.  Once I do that, then I will think about moving my blog completely to WordPress.  Or I may just include a link back to my old site.  Stay tuned to see what I decide.
