Doin the NaNo Thing

I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year again so things might be slow here for the month of November. What is NaNoWriMo you ask? National Novel Writing Month, where pain-seeking authors attempt to write an entire novel in a month! Crazy.

I actually consider myself an artist and a writer before anything else. I started out that way many years ago drawing pencil portraits for my teachers and friends and getting small change or lunch trades in return. ;) Then I went on to tackle oil painting and got a number professional portrait commissions as a teen and twenty-something. I was also enrolled in college and majored in Fine Art, Art History, and English Literature, because not only did I want to art, I also wanted to write.

I occasionally still do oil paint portrait commissions; likewise I currently have at about four novel drafts in various stags of completion. Granted, I was sewing doll clothes at age seven, before anything else, but I wasn't exactly running a business then. ;) I didn't get serious with that until recently.

So here I am doin' the NaNo thing for November. It's going to be a crazy month, though I'm hoping I can still get a little sewing done here and there throughout the madness!
