Not bad for a fat girl

NaNoWriMo Victory!


Yes! I did it. I completed my YA (young adult) novel today. It is just over 50,000 words, according to the verification software on the NaNoWriMo website. On my software it’s closer to 51,000, but hey, what’s a thousand words between friends, right?

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.
