I feel proud that I managed to go all the way through with NaNoWriMo, even though I've done it twice before. It was hard. I has to deal with writers' block, lack of ideas, and just plain not wanting to write. Both of my little brothers tried to do NaNo and quit, as well as my best friend. But I did it!!!!!!!

Chicken News and NaNoWriMo
I was leaning on the porch railing, watching the chickens, when a hoarse little "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOOO!" came from Caramel. OMG, I thought. Our rooster just crowed! That was so cool, but it may be a problem! Then, a minute later, he crowed again. It's so exciting! Our little birds grew up!
Also, I recently finished NaNoWriMo. Nanowrimo is an annual novel writing challenge. You try to write 50,000 words of a fictional book in one month. Actually, I did the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program. It was created because you can't expect younger writers like me to write 50,000 words in a month. In the young writers program, kids set their own word count goals and try to write that many words. My goal, which I reached, was much less than adult "wrimos" write, but a fair amount still-- 14,500 words. Because I reached my goal, I'm a NaNoWriMo WINNER!
