NaNoWriMo! – Writing Group Trumped Writing!

NaNoWriMo! – Writing Group Trumped Writing!

It’s another day of being Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and though it’s  the 12th straight of NaNoWriMo –– National Novel Writer’s Month, attending my writing group trumped writing.

Project: Hold on Her Heart, Lee’s Legacy, Book 2

Goal: 50, 000 in 30 days.

Today: 297.

Overall: 13, 996

Book: 26, 573

It’s not that I didn’t write at all. I just wrote a little because I needed a little feedback on what I’ve done so far. And attending was worth it. Not only was the first comment from the scene I read, “Powerful!”, the reading generated conversation about domestic violence. By writing about that D –– a personal or professional challenge women face –– I’m rendering it historical and minimizing it to maximize beauty and my best life.

I’m pray that whatever Ds you’re facing,  you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic and able to do something that helps to render them historical –– in the past/in your rearview mirror. Even if that means participation in it has to trump something else…When you do, you can keep your focus on the present and keep moving forward into the future God has in store for you!

Be savvy & Chic,

NaNoWriMo! – 10 Days Straight & 1K Words Today!

NaNoWriMo! – 10 Days Straight & 1K Words Today!

It’s another day of being Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose.  I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo –– National Novel Writer’s Month –– 10 days straight and added 1K words today!

Project: Hold On Her Heart, Lee’s Legacy, Book Two.

Goal: 50, 000 words in 30 days.

Today: 1, 000 words.

Overall: 13, 001/50,000.

NaNoWriMo has been amazing at helping me minimize my Ds –– the personal and professional barriers and challenges women face –– this time in the form of delays. Book Two was supposed to be completed by early 2019, yet I’d delayed digging into it because of  everything going on in my life as a wife, mother and new Women’s Center Director. Then NaNoWriMo came around. I’d heard of it, but never committed. The day it began I decided –– an awesome D – to just go for it! Then in this morning’s sermon the pastor stated,”You can’t make the dream (another awesome D!) God gave you a reality unless you wake up and decide to go do something about it.” Wow. Total confirmation.

I pray whatever dreams God has put on your heart that you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic  and make the decision to go after them. You may not feel like this is the right time or that you’re equipped for the task, but if He gave you the desire, He’ll also provide all you need to make it come to pass.  Just as He’s enabled me to minimize delays and maximize beauty and my best life this 10th Day by adding a word count of 1K!

Be savvy & chic,
