NaNoing With A Newborn?

I am far overdue for an update!

I was hoping my next update would be announcing the birth of my second child. However, she has proven stubborn. I'm still pregnant. =/

So, then why is my post title NaNoing With A Newborn? Well, it was my intention to do a series by that name starting in November. But I need the newborn first! I am actually 40 weeks along today, and since I have gestational diabetes, it's time to force baby out whether she wants out or not. I won't know the exact details until later this afternoon, but I suspect she'll arrive no later than Wednesday, likely sooner.

I thought it would be fun to undertake the challenge of doing NaNoWriMo even with a baby on my hands. And since I need to keep my head in my Dead As Dreams' world (for revisions), I'm going to start the sequel, Seeker of Dreams! The first scene I want to write is actually a birth scene, so I'll be waiting until baby's arrival to start my word count. I'm not too worried about starting a few days late because I think my goal will be more around 25,000 than 50,000.

Good luck to everyone doing NaNoWriMo this month. And don't forget to join Writing Quest - November! I promise my next update will be in no more than a week. ;)
