NaNoWriMo 2011 - Almost Ready!

{My new office space! Note: I just painted the "Crystal Skull" which is laced with Swarovski crystals and is set to go into the Haute Whimsy Etsy shop this week.}

It's that time of year again - NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and this year I have a fantastic idea that's been brewing for months. There have been many times since the idea first sparked where I felt like sitting down to pen the story, but I kept telling myself that it was the perfect project for NaNoWriMo - and so I sat on my hands and waited.

Luckily, I've had plenty to keep me busy over the past few months: writing for Zooey Deschanel's website, Hello Giggles; getting my own column on Theme Park Tourist featuring Disneyland Secrets; ghost writing for a tremendously fun blog; getting to know my new little niece, Ava; spending time in Spokane, WA; and, of course, turning 30.

I finally broke down and bought a desk for myself this week. My "couch office" just wasn't cutting it anymore. I cleared out a corner of my living room and am now set up (sans inspiring art) for a frenzy of writing.

I would love to know if you're planning on participating in NaNoWriMo 2011. If so, please leave a comment with your profile link so we can connect! You can find me here.
