I am participating in #NaNoWriMo again this year.
I'm going about it differently. I'm combining my reaction to my mother's death 4 and a half years ago and my recent diagnosis.
Combing over old journal entries. Retracing the steps of my past. Has difficult as this is I can only hope that it will help in my grieving process and my personal growth.
I have never "won" NaNoWriMo, I simply try each year to write that novel/story/memoir that I know is trapped in my mind.
I write in hopes to discovering myself. In hopes of truly telling my story. With the desire to share with the world that they are not alone.
This will not be an easy journey. This path I'm about to walk down will be full of grief, confusion, frustration and deep sorrow for things lost that can never be retrieved again.
You can follow my progress at: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/geminifaerie.
Here I go. Here I walk down a path I do not know where it will lead nor do I know who I will be when all is done.
