I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I was a little girl. I’ve always loved reading and telling stories, but I have never realized my dream of writing a novel. I have participated in NaNoWriMo for years, but I have never “won” or met my goal. This time around, no matter how tired I am each night, I am excited to sit down and write. I’ve figured out why. This time around, I’m not trying to win, I’m not trying to meet a goal, and I’m not even trying to write a novel.
I’m telling a story.
